Stephen Curry poured in 42 points with seven rebounds and seven assists, Klay Thompson added 33 points while Draymond Green had 10 points and 11 rebounds as the Warriors rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Heat and improve to 51-5 on the season and 4-1 on their current seven-game road trip.

Meanwhile, the Magic have lost five of their last nine games but took full advantage of a matchup against the league's worst team, beating the 76ers by 124-115 on Tuesday. Nikola Vucevic had a field day with 35 points on 13 of 21 shooting, Victor Oladipo added 22 points while Evan Fournier had 21 as the Magic really had to battle against the 76ers right until the fourth quarter where they would pull away and get the win to imrpove to 25-30 on the season.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall, while the Magic are 5-1 ATS in the last six games overall and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record.
Head to head, the road team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and the under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Orlando.
Fatigue may be a factor for the Warriors since they played just last night, but they really shouldn't have much of a problem beating a Magic team that really had to battle against the lowly 76ers. Take the Warriors to stay hot and pull away late for yet another win.
