Fourth preseason game for the Miami Heat will be on tonight as they once again square off against the Orlando Magic, their opponent from the second preseason game. This time, Miami Heat will rest at least three players: Dwyane Wade, Josh McRoberts and Amar'e Stoudemire. Hassan Whiteside and Mario Chalmers may not play either.

Miami Heat is 1-2 in the preseason so far while the Orlando Magic is 2-2, with one win over the Heat. In the first meeting of these two teams, Magic had a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter, but the Heat and Gerald Green cut it and tied the game with a few minutes left on the clock. It was the former Heat player Shabazz Napier who decided the winner, with a 3-pointer just a few seconds before the game ended.

This is a back-to-back game for the Miami Heat, therefore they are resting some of the veteran players. This means that younger guys will get the opportunity to show off their skills and one of the key players in the previous preseason games, Gerald Green, will get more touches on the offense and possibly be a starter tonight. Heat will have another back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday this week.

The game starts at 7 PM eastern time and we will be updating you with highlights and scores. Vote below who you think will come up with a victory tonight!
