The Heat has to win this game. With the Magic nipping at their heels in the playoff race, they really have no other choice. Miami has a harder schedule ahead, but have been fierce competitors as of late...but so have the Magic.
The positive? Miami is facing Orlando on the back end of back-to-back. The Heat are losing the season series 2-1 right now, and need to make some distance.
Miami will also be retiring Chris Bosh’s jersey tonight, so this is definitely one to tune into.
