Storyline: Coming off an emotional loss to the Clippers, the Magic complete a back-to-back by heading to Miami to take on the first-place Heat. The Magic, who are 1-6 this season on the second night of back-to-backs, have lost five of six games to fall to five-games under .500, matching their season-low. The Heat have been off since Friday when they fell to the Clippers for just their second home loss of the season (20-2).

It was an emotional night for the Magic, following the loss of Kobe Bryant.
