The Magic is ranked second in the Southeast Division. They have 9.5 games behind the Miami Heat. When it comes to scoring offense, the Orlando Magic are ranked 30th in the league.

Michael Carter Williams will also be a no-show in this Miami Heat vs Orlando Magic matchup this Friday. He has a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.
We have no idea whether Gordon will make an appearance in this game as he has missed the previous two games that Orlando played. This Miami Heat vs Orlando Magic game should be an interesting one. The Miami Heat has not been able to win back to back matchups in the past. We also know that Orlando has managed to win three out of the four games they’ve played against each other. Even with these stats, we believe that the Miami Heat will win this meeting.
