In a battle between in-state rivals, the Miami Heat will take on the Orlando Magic. This will be the third of a four-game season series.

So who will emerge victorious with Miami's legendary 26-game winning streak on the line?

Entering the game, the Heat are 55-14 overall and 23-11 on the road. As previously stated, they've won 26 games in a row.

As for Orlando, they're 18-52 overall and 10-26 at home. They've won just six of their past 45 games and two of their past 13.

As we all know, however, rivalry games throw records out of the window.

Key Storyline: Preserving the Streak

Entering their March 25 game against the Orlando Magic, the Miami Heat have won 26 consecutive games. They're now seven games away from the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers' NBA record of 33 straight victories.

Can they take down their rivals to make it 27 straight wins?
 
 
 
 
   
This won't be as easy a task as the records may suggest. After all, these two teams have already played twice in 2012-13.

Miami's average margin of victory in those games is 1.5 points—a 112-110 overtime win and a 97-96 regulation victory.

In other words, the Heat are unlikely to run away with this win as the numbers might suggest they would. In fact, we're more likely to see a game that comes down to the wire.

After all, what's better for a young team than a streak-ending victory over their in-state rivals?
