The Orlando Magic continue to tune up for the regular season Tuesday when the Miami Heat visit a Amway Center.

Tipoff between the Sunshine State rivals is set for 7:00 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer coverage of the game.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic improved to 2-2 in the exhibition campaign with a stunning 123-119 victory over the Houston Rockets. Orlando, which trailed by as much as 22, took command of the game in the second half. Second-year wing Devyn Marble shouldered much of the load, scoring 14 of his game-best 21 points after intermission to lead the comeback. Evan Fournier scored 19 points in 21 minutes for Orlando.

Miami's last time out: The Heat cruised past the San Antonio Spurs, 97-94, by limiting the visitors' C- and D-teams to 10 points on 3-of-18 shooting in the fourth quarter. Gerald Green scored 17 to lead Miami.
