You are currently viewing GAME DAY 49 – MIAMI HEAT VS ORLANDO MAGIC


Being only 3 days since we last faced each other this preview is going to be pretty short.

Tonight sees our Orlando Magic in the Amway taking on the Miami Heat. The game has a U.K. tip time of 12:00am midnight It will as always be available live & on demand via the NBA League Pass.

The last meeting was a one sided affair in which we were beaten comfortably by Miami. We need to see a reaction to that defeat or I fear the result will be another loss.

Miami are a team performing well, with weapons in every area of the court.

Keys To The Game

To defeat them Orlando will have to retain the ball when we have it. We can not afford to give up easy steals or make unforced errors that result in turnovers.

Our offence will have to move the ball to create scoring opportunities. If we are to rely again on shooting the 3 the efficiency has to be better than in Miami.

Orlando’s defensive play will need to be focused all night to nullify their multiple threats. Jimmy Butler can hurt any team & Tyler Herro is rapidly becoming a player whom any team underestimate at their peril.
