The Orlando Magic is rather dreadful.
Aaron Gordon, it’s best player who isn’t nearly as skilled as just about every other team’s best player, is unavailable with an injury. Evan Fournier, its second-best player is also out. A promising rookie, Jonathan Isaac, also has to sit on the bench. He’s also out with an ankle injury.
So I’m telling you this team is bad with all of these guys. You can imagine why it’s having all sorts of trouble with these three out.
Elfrid Payton was a star at Louisiana Tech but he isn’t worthy of a starting point guard job in the NBA, aside from the Magic’s starting point guard job. This franchise just consistently offers sub-standard expectations all over the roster.
Mario Hezonja went bonkers for one of the craziest backdoor covers last week against Detroit; it’s highly unlikely that he’ll do that again.
Goran Dragic is back, which is great news for the Heat. He’s the one truly accomplished and veteran professional the Heat has, among a whole bunch of promising young guys. And Eric Spolestra.
Dragic is a gold medalist, a former Most Improved Player and an adept combo guard, one of the more underrated basketball players in the NBA. He’s one of the rare talents and personalities who would make any team, anywhere, better when he plays.
He’s playing through pain right now, though, and didn’t shoot well in his return against the Pelicans late last week. Miami lost that game after having won back-to-back games.
James Johnson, too. He made his return against New Orleans earlier than expected but only played eight minutes.
Dion Waiters sat out, though. That’s kind of how it’s been going all season for Miami, one guy sitting as another returns. The Heat can’t get healthy all together. Nonetheless, they are squarely in the playoff hunt and should finish somewhere in the bottom half if it can get even close to a full bill of health for, say, a month or so. There’s some talent on the roster.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction: you might to have guessed — but I like the Miami Heat.
Dragic will be the best player on the floor and push his team to a win at home. He’s got more help than Orlando has players.
