The Orlando Magic are looking for answers but it appears that won’t come Wednesday night. The Magic visit a streaking Miami Heat quintet, meaning it will take much to turn the tide in their favor. Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier need to be at their best on offense which averages 105.3 points per contest. Defense could do it for them, limiting opponents to just 106.9 points per game. But against the Heat, Orlando may need to put in more work if they are to snap their skid.
