Game night preview


ORLANDO MAGIC vs. MIAMI HEAT
Sunday, Feb. 28. 7:00 p.m. ESPN
Amway Arena
Orlando, FL

It’s a matchup that determines Sunshine State bragging rights. The Orlando Magic and Miami Heat each want to represent their home state well, and on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET, they each will have the opportunity to do that at Amway Arena. The Heat have won both meetings this season, the first on Nov. 25 in Orlando and the second on Dec. 17 in Miami. Dwyane Wade has always played spectacular against the Magic. The MVP of the 2010 All-Star Game and 2006 NBA Finals MVP racked up 50 points in O-Town last season. Recently, however, Wade has been out of the lineup with a mild strained left calf muscle, and he is doubtful for tonight's game. The Heat are coming off a miserable 94-71 home loss to Milwaukee Saturday.

    I kind of wish that DWade was playing for the Heat so that it would be a better challenge for the Magic, as they were unable to beat Miami twice earlier in the season with Wade in uniform.

    Miami played well the first few games without Wade, but did they ever stink it up against Milwaukee yesterday. I'm sure they'll play better today, but without Wade, this game should not be close at all.
