The Miami Heat (9-13) are looking to get back at the Orlando Magic (11-12) for opening night. That’s the night that Josh Richardson stepped on the baseline in the closing seconds to try to win the game for Miami. What happened next was the Heat’s season falling a part. The Heat welcome the Magic to the AAA and hope to win their third straight game before beginning a west coast trip on Friday.
When: Tuesday, December 4 at 7:30 p.m. ET
Where: AmericanAirlines Arena, Miami, FL
TV: Fox Sports Sun
Win Probability: According the FiveThirtyEight the Heat have an 64% chance to win.

What To Watch For
What really hurt the Heat the last time they played was the length of Orlando with Gordon, Bamba and Vucevic. The Heat are in pieces because of injury, but they should have enough to find a way to win. One thing is for sure, they can’t be comfortable with any lead. Orlando and Miami have both given up and erased large deficits.
