Game night preview

From the Magic press release:
ORLANDO MAGIC vs MIAMI HEAT
Wednesday, Nov. 25. 7:30 p.m.

Amway Arena
Orlando, FL



The Orlando Magic (11-3) will attempt to notch their sixth straight victory on Wednesday when they host the Miami Heat (8-5) at 7:30 p.m. ET. Orlando has won 12 of its last 13 regular season meetings with Miami and will look to continue that trend in front of a national audience. After jumping out to a terrific start to the season, Miami has dropped three of its last four contests and is struggling to find a way to limit its opponents on the defensive end. The Magic, on the other hand, have been on a tear. After notching three straight home victories, Orlando earned road triumphs over two Eastern Conference contenders, Boston and Toronto. In both road wins, the Magic’s biggest offseason addition made an immense impact. Eight-time All-Star Vince Carter posted a game-high 26 points in Orlando’s victory over Boston and then followed it up with a game-high 24 in the Magic’s win over the Raptors. “Both games on the road we put the ball in his hands late and I think he’s making pretty solid plays,” Magic Head Coach Stan Van Gundy explained of Carter’s recent performances. “He’ll be the guy that will probably have the ball in those situations, not necessarily to take the shot all the time, but to make the plays.”


Here is the complete preview from Yahoo! Sports.


The Magic are 9 1/2 point favorites.

    Wade may get his usual astro-points that he does whenever he plays against the Magic; that's alright, as long as the Magic can get the win, like they almost always do against the Heat.

    The heat dont really have a quality big man so i expect dwight and marcin to have good games and lead us to a victory. VC needs to stay aggressive going to the basket and MP needs to shoot when open and stop passing up open shots. Everybody should help out defensively against wade and make it a team defensive effort to stop him from going crazy. Magic could win this game in a route.
