Fast Break Points:

-Last time Orlando and Miami played, LeBron hit a game-winner:

-Here are the complete highlights:

-Vucevic might not play.  He is recovering from a concussion suffered on March 19th.  If he doesn’t play it would be a huge blow to the Magic as he has averaged 22.5 points and 25.0 rebounds against the Heat this season.

-Arron Afflalo injured his right hamstring last Friday playing against the Oklahoma City Thunder.  He will miss the remainder of the season.  Beno Udreh, E’Twaun Moore, DeQuan Jones, and Doron Lamb will split time at SG.

-Heat go for win 27, six wins away from the Lakers’ record of 33.
