Heat And Magic Preseason Schedule 2011: Miami And Orlando Play Home-And-Home Series In Shortened Preseason

With the NBA Lockout finally in the rearview mirror, a fast and frenzied free agency period and condensed training camp has begun, with NBA teams finally taking the floor for exhibition games beginning next weekend. The Orlando Magic and Miami Heat will spend their lockout-shortened preseason facing each other in a home-and-home-series beginning next Sunday, December 18th.

Once those warm-up contests are complete, both Orlando and Miami open the truncated NBA season on Christmas Day. LeBron, Wade and Bosh will travel to Dallas to take on Dirk and the defending champs in a midday contest. The Magic will travel to Oklahoma City to take on Kevin Durant and the Thunder in a primetime affair, with the biggest question being whether Dwight Howard will still be on the Orlando roster come tip time.

Magic and Heat Preseason Schedule

Sunday, December 18th: Orlando Magic at Miami Heat, 6:00 PM

Wednesday, December 21st: Miami Heat at Orlando Magic, 7:00 PM

Orlando Magic 2011 NBA Schedule: Orlando Will Face 19 Back-To-Backs In Shortened Season

While the Orlando Magic may only have to play a dreaded back-to-back-to-back just once this season, they will have a total of 19 back-to-backs in the condensed 66 game schedule. Orlando will host the Lakers on January 20th, coming on heels of those three games in three nights. The season will open on Christmas Day with a trip to Oklahoma City to face the Kevin Durant led Thunder. It will certainly be a frenetic dash to the playoffs.

Miami Heat 2011 NBA Schedule: Big Three Will Be Tested With Condensed Schedule

With nearly two months lost due to the lockout negotiations, the Miami Heat are now forced to play a condensed 66 games schedule in an intense three and half month tour towards the playoffs. The Heat have 17 back-to-backs over the course of the season, including one instance where they play three games in three nights. The frenetic pace of the schedule consummates in April, when they play eight games in just 11 nights.

The schedule features some primetime matchups in the opening week, with the opener on the road against the Dallas Mavericks and the home opener just two days later against the Boston Celtics. The Lakers make their one visit to Miami less than a month later on January 19th.
