Orlando Magic Form

Orlando come into this game on the back of their third defeat in five games they have played in 2024.

The Magic picked up a couple of wins in late 2023, downing Indiana 117-110 and Washington 127-119 on the road, before returning home to beat New York 117-108.

They made a losing end to the year though, falling to a 112-107 defeat when they visited Phoenix, and they then lost 121-115 when they visited Golden State.

Orlando stopped the rot with a 122-120 upset of Denver to get off the mark this year, and backed that up with a 117-110 overtime win at home to Atlanta.

The Magic failed to make it three wins in a row though, losing 113-92 when they hosted Minnesota on Tuesday night.

Miami Heat Form

Miami come into this game in underwhelming form, having lost four of their last six to fall to 21-16.

The Heat enjoyed a four-game losing skid at the end of December, starting with a 115-106 victory in Orlando.

They then beat Atlanta 122-113 and Philadelphia 119-113 at home, before heading back out on the road to down Golden State 114-102.

Miami failed to close out 2023 with a win though, losing 117-109 in Utah, and they then made a losing start to 2024 as they were beaten 121-1014 at the LA Clippers.

The Heat have been hit-and-miss since then, beating the Los Angeles Lakers 110-96 and Houston 120-113, while losing 113-97 at Phoenix and 128-120 to Oklahoma City.

Verdict

Miami are dealing with injuries, but they have dominated Orlando in recent times and the Magic are having issues offensively.
