The Orlando Magic tip off against the Miami Heat tonight in a game that LeBron James’ crew is highly favored (-13.5) and rightfully so. They recently beat the Magic down by 28 in a clinic by James, so do not expect a dissimilar result in this one. Perhaps it is his recent marriage, but it appears that James is in quite a good place mentally right now. Guess a couple championships can change a guy as well.
“When I get out on the floor,” James said after the latest win. “I am extremely happy and extremely blessed to know that this game can be taken away from us at any day. You never know what can happen.”
Shooting guard Dwyane Wade is still sitting, but people forget about how deep off a squad president of basketball operations Pat Riley has put together. They almost do not need their three time champion in the lineup to still easily win games by a large margin. The second unit on this team could probably be the eighth seed in the Eastern conference this year in my humble opinion, and that is why still cannot go with the Magic to even cover this spread.
Here is the TV info for that one.

You can bet that Victor Oladipo will play intensely tonight (you can always count on that), but ultimately the South Beach Boys will prevail in this one.
