Magic, Heat brace for high-stakes showdown

The Orlando Magic, who will visit the Miami Heat on Tuesday night in a game with serious playoff implications, appear to be coming on strong.

Orlando (36-38) just finished the first 5-0 home stretch in franchise history and now trails Miami (36-37) by just a half-game in the race for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference.

The Magic have used the same starting lineup for 27 consecutive games, and that continuity is showing positive effects, including Monday night's 119-98 win over a talented Philadelphia 76ers team.
