Wading through the Magic

It seems like the Miami Heat have had the second seed in the Eastern Conference locked up since all the way back when Katie Holmes was still Joey, and Tom Cruise was still normal. Staring down the final six games of the regular season, including four straight at home, the Heat’s main priority down the stretch is staying healthy. It starts tonight at the American Airlines Arena (601 Biscayne Blvd, Miami) where the Heat will face the Orlando Magic at 6 p.m. @body:Since the All-Star break, no team in the NBA has been hotter than the Heat. With just a handful of losses over the past few months, on paper it looks like they’re streaking towards a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons. The Magic, on the other hand, were pretty much eliminated from playoff contention before Christmas, and are gearing up for their third straight NBA draft lottery pick. Tickets start at $10.
