The Miami Heat split a set of games with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday and Friday night. Giving the ball away 20-plus times to the Cavaliers on Wednesday, the Miami Heat wouldn’t be able to overcome their mistakes, eventually losing to the Cavs team by just four points.

And though Donovan Mitchell we do all he could on Friday night to give his Cavaliers team a chance to win without Darius Garland by his side, Jimmy Butler would also do all he could to propel his team to victory.

And what a win to be coming off of as they head into a Saturday night matchup with their in-state rivals and little brothers of the Sunshine State, the Orlando Magic. A scrappy young Magic team, they’ve been a problem for most teams they face this season, even though their record is what it is.

A team capable of beating you, as indicated by wins over teams like the Celtics and their positioning just four games below the final play-in spot in the Eastern Conference, the Heat can’t take this Magic bunch lightly.

Because, not only, have they shown the capability to beat better teams on a given night, but they always have something extra when facing the Heat.

The Miami Heat take on their in-state rivals on Saturday, the Orlando Magic. Off a tough win on Friday, this is another winnable game for a needy Heat squad.

The Miami Heat injury report is a light one for their Saturday contest. Well, Duncan Robinson was out on Friday night due to an illness, so you have to imagine that he remains in question right now for Saturday. However, the Miami Heat will get a much-needed piece back, it seems.

After missing the last 15 games for the Miami Heat, Kyle Lowry will make his return on Saturday according to these reports. And honestly, the Heat need him.

Miami Heat vs. Orlando Magic Prediction

Miami needs to be seeking to get all the wins they can and this especially means when they face teams that they should beat. This game against Orlando Magic certainly qualifies there, as they should beat this Magic team that they are clearly better than.

That doesn’t always mean that they will win though, but with them certainly knowing all that has been discussed here as well, this Heat team should do just that.

Miami Heat’s Next Game and Schedule

After finishing off the backhalf of a back-to-back on Saturday night, the Heat will have a day off before facing the Utah Jazz on Monday. As a part of a three-game week, virtually four though if you include the back-to-back that they have with Sunday’s game, they’ll face the Grizz on Wednesday, before the Bulls Saturday, and then Detroit Sunday.

And with a couple of winnable games before them, the Heat would be be wise to do all they can to nab them, potentially climbing up the standings.
