Orlando vs Miami Heat by Lloyds

Orlando
VS
Miami-Heat
The Heat travel to nearby Orlando where they'll face the Magic in search for their second straight win. The hosts are riding on 3-game winning streak themselves and they'll definitely be motivated against their Florida rivals. Miami dismantled Philadelphia in their last match after being up by only one point in the first half. However, Goran Dragic was much better in his second game, unlike the game against the Pelicans, recording 23 points and 10 assists.

 

Miami are among the worst offensive teams in the league because they play in a slow tempo but now that Dragic is at point guard they are looking faster, especially on fast breaks. The Heat scored 119 points on Philadelphia, which is not an often figure for Miami this season. Luol Deng looks like he is returning to good form and that's of vital importance for the visitors who need him on the offensive end. It is a rare occasion for the Heat to lose a game this season when Deng scores 20+ points. The one thing that stands out about Miami is that they are playing much better on the road than at home. Most of their 100+ games were on the road, where they are 14-15 this season.

 

The Magic are an awful team defensively, which will sit well for the visiting side, but lately there has been improvement in that field. They held their opponents bellow 100 points in the last five games but are still weak at defending the paint. Nikola Vucevic is putting up some great numbers but he is not good defensively and Miami will get a lot of chances to attack the basket, especially Wade,Dragic and Whiteside, who are shooting in high percentages around the basket.

 

The Heat are a stronger side and want to stay on the 7th spot which is why they must win tonight. Orlando are playing well since they've changed the coach and they should bring an uptempo game tonight. I reckon that both teams will have a good scoring night, especially Miami.
