Today Phoenix Suns (30-39) will take on Miami Heat (43-26). Here we look at the Match Preview and TV Schedule for the game.
The Suns (4-0) will look to continue their magical run at Orlando. No one thought that the Suns would win their opening four matches in the restart. The previous time they had done this was in 2018.
But Devin Booker has looked like a man on a mission. He has brought them right in the mix for the play-in tournament and could pull off a miracle in the next few games.
The No.4 seed Heat in the West will look for their third win as their season restart has been quiet. The side has a 2-2 record in Orlando. They will look to increase their gap with No. 5 seed Pacers as they are only 1.5 games ahead of them.
The Suns (30 wins) sit on No.12 spot in the West and if they continue with their winning streak, they might have a chance in play-in-game for the eighth seed. Blazers (32 wins) and Mavericks (33 wins) are in the 9th and 8th spots.

Suns vs Heat Preview
Miami Heat have been hit with injuries that have affected their season restart at Orlando. Jimmy Butler and Gorgan Dragic are questionable for today’s game too. The side lost to Bucks in the previous match which was disappointing as they blew up a 23 points lead.
The Suns will have to watch the Heat’s 3-point shooting as they are the No.1 team when it comes to 3 point percentage. Duncan Robinson is shooting well and can be lethal against the Suns. He has scored 20+ points in the previous two games.
Phoenix Suns have a few defensive vulnerabilities too. But they very well make up for it on the offensive front, with both DeAndre Ayton and Devin Booker firing on all cylinders when it comes to garnering points.
Suns are the definite favorites for the game as they are on a four-game winning streak. With heat missing some key players, Suns can make use of it to get a 5-0 record in Orlando.
