Magic Vs. Heat Score: Miami Pulling Away Behind Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

The Miami Heat are doing a number on the Orlando Magic in the resumption of their Sunshine State rivalry in Miami. After three quarters, the Heat lead, 70-54.

The usual suspects are leading the Heat, of course: Dwyane Wade has 25 points and LeBron James has added 19 points. LeBron is also threatening a triple-double with 10 rebounds and eight assists. They're the only two Heat players in double digits, but they've been able to help Miami build a huge lead because of their defense.

The Heat haven't locked down on every Magic shooter — J.J. Redick has made five threes and leads Orlando with 17 points — but they've limited the sharpshooting Magic from behind the arc and have produced 11 Orlando turnovers. And Dwight Howard, despite already having a double-double, has been a relative non-factor, scoring just 11 points through three periods.
