25 words or fewer: Surging Orlando faces off against division rival Miami in an early-season matchup with plenty of subplots.

Know your enemy: The Heat beat the Rockets last night. Shaquille O'Neal reverted back to championship form in scoring 26 points and grabbing 14 rebounds while simultaneously holding Yao Ming to 20 points and 7 rebounds.

Useless information: The Heat went with an eight-man rotation last night. Fatigue may be a factor, especially for their backcourt; both Wade and Williams played 40-plus minutes.

I'll be at the game tonight. Let's see if the Magic can add another win to their total before embarking on a long West-Coast swing.

UPDATE: Added a poll. Will you be cheering or booing Miami's former Magic players in their return to Orlando this evening?
