``He’s a great player, if not the greatest, and he can change the game in so many ways,’’ marveled Oladipo, who got the first start of his professional career on Wednesday. ``When we were coming over to double, he was just making the right play. And it wasn’t like just once or twice – it was every time.’’
Miami (9-3) hit 15 3-pointers – most of them coming when Orlando (4-7) focused much of its defensive attention on James. Guard James Jones burned the Magic defense for 17 points and five 3-pointers and seven different Heat players hit 3-point shots.
It is the third time this season that Orlando has yielded 120 points – all three of them resulting in losses. The Magic are 0-5 this season when giving up 100 points.
