After flat outing against Celtics, Magic hope to improve tonight against Heat

The Magic (33-9) will be trying to avoid their first losing streak of the season since they started the season 0-2 as they take on the Heat in Miami tonight.

The good news is the Magic have a 10 game winning streak against Miami, and have not lost to them since February of 2006.

Key stat... the Heat are 13-4 this season when superstar Dwyane Wade scores 30+ points, and just 9-15 if he is held under 30. Wade scored 33 points against the Magic in their previous game, but was shutout in the fourth quarter as the Magic won a low-scoring affair 86-76.

The Magic are 7 1/2 point favorites tonight.

    The Magic are now back in third place in the East after Cleveland's dramatic buzzer-beating win over Golden St. Friday night.

    Hopefully the guys can turn it around tonight on the road after an overall flat performance at home against the Celts.

    The heat will play tough,but in the end they have nobody to guard dwight and i expect him to come out and dominate. I think the magic to get back on track and win this game with the heat. At some point the jumpers will start to fall and the heat cant match-up with us having so much inexperience in the line-up. Hedo gets a break as marion doesnt take many shots,but CL will have his hands full with DWade and the refs.
