Victor Oladipo scored or assisted on Orlando’s final nine points, Nikola Vucevic led all scorers with 26 and the Orlando Magic snapped a 10-game drought against Miami, topping the Heat 102-101 escaping when Dwyane Wade’s 20-footer missed at the end.
Wade had 15 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, the third time he’s scored that many in the final 12 minutes at home this season. Miami is 0-3 in those games, fell to four games under .500 for the season and is a staggering 6-12 at home.
“We’ve got to win,” Wade said. “It’s simple as that.”
Oladipo scored 22 points, Tobias Harris had 18 and Channing Frye finished with 13 for the Magic, who are two games behind Miami now for the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference.
Orlando won despite shooting only 13 free throws. Miami shot 40.
