Miami Heat come to town this weekend looking for revenge for the Magic's preseason overtime win

For basketball fans in Florida who still care about in-state rivalries (or basketball at all, if you can manage to make out the arena through all that purple glitter every week), the first season match-up between the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat never fails to be a spirited part of the holidays. In a late pre-season game against the Heat in October, the Magic took the win in overtime. Since then, Vucevic has maintained his gusto as one of the Magic’s greatest forces, currently leading in field goal percentage and points scored per game. After Vooch’s contentious technical foul against the Brooklyn Nets (for glaring too much at the ref, heh), there’s been talk that he plays better when he’s riled up. Here’s hoping that recent Dwight Howard-to-Miami Heat trade rumor does the trick to incite the whole Magic team to compel a mad victory.
