It was a tough weekend for both Miami and Orlando.

It wasn't a good weekend for professional basketball teams in Florida.

Both the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic went 0-2 over the weekend, with each team losing back-to-back games Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, the Heat lost to the struggling Detroit Pistons, 109-99. LeBron James scored a game-high 35 points and Chris Bosh had 28 himself, but they were the only two players in double-digits for the Heat. Ray Allen was the third-leading scorer with nine points.

The Heat got Dwayne Wade back for Saturday's game, but they still lost to the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-85. Wade scored 24 points, which was second to James' game-high 26 points. The Bucks put the game away with 35 points in the fourth quarter.

The Washington Wizards snapped an eight-game losing streak Friday with a 105-97 win over the Magic. J.J. Redick scored 23 points off the bench, including 5-of-12 shooting from 3-point land, but it wasn't enough to lift the Magic. Arron Afflalo scored a team-high 26 points and was 7-of-7 from the line.

The Toronto Raptors cruised past the Magic on Saturday, 123-88. Andrew Nicholson scored a game-high 22 points for the Magic. Orlando was doomed in the fourth quarter, surrendering 36 points while scoring just 17. Toronto scored at least 30 points in three of the four quarters.

Both the Magic and Heat are back in action Monday -- against each other. Tip off is set for 5 p.m. ET.
