Don’t look now, but the Magic are over .500 and they have won 3 in a row. They are only 1.5 games out of the tight Southeast Division.
They are a slight 1.5-point betting underdog on the road facing a Timberwolves team that had their 3-game winning streak snapped in their last game.
In their last games the Magic beat the Boston Celtics 110-91 and the Timberwolves lost to the L.A. Clippers 107-99.
This season the Timberwolves are 2-6 at home and the Magic are 2-5 on the road.
The Magic rank a solid 10th in the league in scoring and 15th in opponents’ points allowed.
Orlando has been winning as of late and they have been playing solid defense holding 4 of their last 5 opponents under 42% shooting.
2 of the 3 leading scorers for the Magic are small forwards Evan Fournier and Tobias Harris and 2nd leading scorer is C Nikola Vucevic, who is averaging 15.1 ppg and 8.4 rpg. Victor Oladipo is averaging 14.3 ppg, but since moving to the bench he has become more aggressive and is averaging 20 ppg in his last 3 games.
These 2 teams met earlier this season in Orlando where the Magic beat the Timberwolves 104-101 in OT.
Minnesota ranks 14th in the league in scoring and 18th in opponents’ points allowed.
While the Timberwolves are only 2-6 at home those 2 wins have come in their last 2 games on their floor.
Andrew Wiggins leads 5 Minnesota players that are averaging in double figures. In the game earlier this season in Orland he went for 28 points and rookie Karl-Anthony Towns went for 21. The match up at the C position between Towns and Vucevic will be key in this non-conference match up.
Ricky Rubio is averaging over 10 ppg and leads the team in assists and after missing 2 straight games he should go tonight.
Orlando has lost their last 3 road games.
