The Miami Heat remain two games ahead of the Atlanta Hawks in the Southeast Division while the Orlando Magic's losing streak has pushed their deficit to over 10 games.

After a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, the Heat rebounded nicely winning their next two games against the Orlando Magic and an overtime victory over the Dallas Mavericks. LeBron James almost recorded a triple double in the victory against the Mavs, recording 32 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists.

The Magic are trending the other way as their losing streak stretched to seven games after losses to Toronto, Miami and Chicago on Wednesday night. Jameer Nelson had 32 points to lead the Magic while Nikola Vucevic added 20 points and 12 rebounds in the loss.

Miami's lead over second place Atlanta remained at two games while the Magic sit in third place 11 games behind the Heat. Charlotte and Washington bring up the rear of the division, sitting 14.5 and 18 games behind the Heat respectively.
