The Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic will meet on the court at Amway Center on Friday in a battle of division rivals.

ABOUT THE HEAT (28-33): Miami received 67 points from its bench in the victory over Philadelphia and 24 of them came from guard Tyler Johnson, who is fourth on the team in scoring (14.0). Center Hassan Whiteside notched his sixth double-double in the last seven games and leads the league in rebounds (14.1) while blocking 2.1 shots per contest – among the top four in the NBA. Goran Dragic scored 15 on Wednesday after averaging 22.5 points in February while Dion Waiters matched him after scoring 18.4 per contest last month.

ABOUT THE MAGIC (22-39): Fournier tops the team at 16.7 points per game and has scored at least 20 in six of his last 10, including 22 in the loss to the Knicks. Center Nikola Vucevic boasts four double-doubles in his last five games – averaging 14.2 points and 10.1 rebounds overall – while guard Elfrid Payton scored two on Wednesday – his lowest total since Jan. 1. Small forward Terrence Ross, acquired from Toronto in the Serge Ibaka trade, is averaging 14.3 points in three games with the team but is coming off a 3-for-10 shooting effort against the Knicks.

Oddsmakers currently have the Heat listed as 4-point favorites versus the Magic, while the game’s total is sitting at 208½.

What appeared to be a lost or at least transitional season a month and a half ago has turned into one that could include a playoff series or more for the Miami Heat. The Heat have won 17 of their last 20 contests since an 11-30 start and can avenge one of the three losses during their surge when they visit the struggling Orlando Magic on Friday night for a Southeast Division battle.

Miami is one game behind eighth-place Detroit in the Eastern Conference and just three away from sixth after a 125-98 victory over Philadelphia on Wednesday, but lost 116-107 at home to the Magic on Feb. 13. “We’re playing for something right now,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters. “We don’t have a lot of wiggle room.” Orlando, which owns more victories than only three teams in the league after starting the season with playoff aspirations, dropped seven of its last nine after a 101-90 home defeat against the New York Knicks on Wednesday. “We’re just not consistent,” Magic leading scorer Evan Fournier told reporters. “That’s the bottom line. That’s why we can’t get two wins in a row.”

Last time out for Orlando, they were a 101-90 loser as they battled the Knicks at home. The Magic failed to cover in the match as a -2.5-point favorite, while 191 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Miami won its last outing, a 125-98 result against the 76ers on March 01. The Heat covered in that game as a -9.5-point favorite, while the 223 combined points took the game OVER the total.
