The Magic (42-24, 22-12 road) will look to continue to solidify the third playoff spot in the East.
The probable starting lineup for MIA:
G... Jason Williams (8.4 ppg)
G... Daequan Cook (7.5 ppg)
F... Ricky Davis (13.8 ppg)
F... Shawn Marion (15.5 ppg, 10.2 rebs)
C... Mark Blount (8.7 ppg)
Top reserves... Chris Quinn (5.2 ppg); Alexander Johnson (3.9 ppg); Bobby Jones (3.4 ppg)
MIA is averaging 93.7 ppg and allows 101.3 ppg; the Magic average 104.8 ppg and allow 100.2 ppg.
The Magic have not lost to the Heat since FEB of 2006 and have won 8 games in a row against them since then, including 3-0 this season. MIA's last three losses overall have been only by a combined seven pts.
It's not often you see a road team favored by 11 1/2 pts, but that's what the Magic are favored by (www.pinnaclesports.com) in what figures to be a mismatch, at least on paper.
