The Orlando Magic meet up with in-state rival Miami Heat on Wednesday for the first time this season. It’s the first game of a home-and-home series that will conclude Saturday night in Miami.

Orlando has lost four of their last five, falling to the Dallas Mavericks 108-100 last time out. The Magic are coming off a three day break in which both Tobias Harris and Glen Davis began practicing. However, both are doubtful to play Wednesday Night.

After losing to the Celtics on a Jeff Green game-winner, the Heat have racked up four consecutive wins. The Heat are playing their second game of a back-to-back in which they defeated the Hawks at home 104-88 — highlighted by 19 points from Chris Bosh.
