The Miami Heat will take on the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night, while the Magic visit Chicago on Tuesday. Here's what both teams' weeks look like.
Both the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic have two games this week, highlighted by the Heat hosting the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night at American Airlines Arena. The Nets will only be playing their second game of the season, as their schedule has been disrupted by Hurricane Sandy. Before that, though, Miami will have to face the Phoenix Suns on Monday night. The Heat, who are 2-1 on the season, should enjoy this brief home stand, as they'll hit the road for six straight games after Wednesday, and won't play another home game until Nov. 21.
While the Heat play both of their games at home this week, the Magic play both of their games on the road. They head to Chicago to take on the Bulls on Tuesday night, and then play a back-to-back the next night in Minnesota against the Timberwolves. It's a brief road trip though, as they'll be back in Orlando again on Friday.
Here are the schedules for the Heat and Magic for the week of Nov. 5th. For the full NBA schedule, check out SI.com.
