Sneak Preview: Miami Heat at Orlando Magic

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Surprise, ahem, is in the voice of the Heat these days. Now that their force field of arrogance has been shattered, the Heat wobble into Amway Center at a ho-hum 8-6, misfiring on offense and missing some spare parts (Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller). All their woes place a ton of pressure on …

Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel: “Kay Kellogg loved Dwight Howard. Loved him to death. And, sadly, her death came on Sunday night. Kellogg  passed away at her home at age 62 after a battle with Multiple Myeloma, an aggressive cancer that searches out and destroys the blood plasma in the bone marrow.
