Miami won the Eastern Conference title last season before losing to the LA Lakers in Game 6 in the NBA bubble in Orlando and the Heat are back in action again in just seven weeks.
“Historically, this is different,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “But if you consistently go to the Finals — like Golden State, like all of LeBron (James’) teams, like our old teams — those were all quick turnarounds, too. That’s the price of chasing something great.”
Orlando finished 33-40 overall and 9-5 in Southeast Division action a season ago. The Magic averaged 8.2 steals, 5.4 blocks and 12.8 turnovers per game last season.
Miami went 44-29 overall and 30-13 in Eastern Conference action in the 2019-20 season. The Heat averaged 112 points per game while allowing opponents to score 109.1 last season.
INJURIES: Magic: Jonathan Isaac: out (ACL).
