Dwyane Wade is averaging 19.2 points and 4.7 assists while Hassan Whiteside is averaging 14.1 points and 11.9 rebounds. Goran Dragic is dishing 5.9 assists and Joe Johnson is grabbing 2.9 rebounds.

The Magic are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Heat are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games and 34-16-2 ATS in their last 52 Sunday games. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Heat will get their revenge, but I'm not sure it's going to be by double digits. Orlando is a team that fights and claws and usually is able to keep a game within single digits. I don't love this game at all, but if forced to pick, I'd take my chances with the points.
