ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
The Miami Heat won the battle of Florida Monday night at the Amway Center. The Heat turned it up on the Magic in the second half to take their twenty-seventh win in a row.
The Magic got off to a strong start. They led for most of the first half, with Dwayne Wade on the bench with an injury. The Magic line up is really battered too, with some key players on the sidelines.
The Heat grabbed the lead before halftime and led by ten at the end of the third quarter. Lebron and company were too much for Orlando. Your final score is 108 to 94. FOX 35 talked to Magic and Miami fans about the Heat's hot streak and Orlando's troubles.
David Shekhter is a Miami fan. "They're doing amazing. They have a few more wins though before they actually beat the record streak, but we're on a good path right now."
Orlando fan Rachael Tinsley has thoughts on the Magic. "They still have their spark. They just need to have someone find it and regain it and make it on fire again."
The Heat are closing in on the Lakers record of thirty-three straight wins. Many NBA fans think they could break it this year and are well positioned to go to the NBA finals.
