SBJ: Orlando Magic Will Face Miami Heat in Amway Center Opener

The NBA will host an hourlong TV special to announce the marquee games on its 2010/11 schedule tomorrow night, but the Sports Business Journal reports that we can already count on one game taking place on opening night: the Orlando Magic will host the Miami Heat on October 28th in their new building, the Amway Center.

Andrew Sharp of responds:

More important than opening Amway, though, it'll be the tip-off of the 2010-11 NBA season, starting things with a rivalry game that fans have been anticipating since the moment LeBron James announced plans to join the Miami Heat. The gauntlet has been thrown down in the state of Florida, and it's up to the Magic to answer the call.

We knew the Magic would indeed have a call to answer since James' The Decision special. Now, we know when, exactly, the Magic can take on their rivals.
