The Heat (31-14) have won six of their last 10 games, but they are coming off a loss in their most recent contest, which marked only their second home loss of the season. This marks their fourth game of a five-game home stand, as they look get back on track and to build on their 20-2 home record. The Heat are shooting 37.7 percent from long range, which is second best in the league. They average 112.2 points per game and are holding their opponents to an average of 108.7 points per game.

Meanwhile, the Magic (21-26) have dropped six of their last 10 games, including their last three in a row. This marks their second game of a aback-to-back, as they are coming off a home loss against the Clippers on Sunday. This is the Magic's first road game since a six-game road trip, where they went 3-3, while they look to improve on their 8-15 road record. The Magic average 103.8 points per game, which is second fewest in the league, but they are holding their opponents to a league-low 104.4 points per game.
