The Timberwolves snapped their 4-game losing streak in their last game and they are taking on an Orlando team tonight that had won 2 straight before a loss in their last game.
The T-Wolves have to be happy they are on the road tonight, as they are 5-1 away from Minnesota this season where they are 0-5 this season and have lost 13 in a row.
In their last games the Timberwolves beat the Miami Heat 103-91 and the Magic lost to the Washington Wizards 108-99.
This season the Magic are 3-2 at home and the Timberwolves are 5-1 on the road.
Minnesota’s issues this season have been on the defensive end of the court, as they only rank 22nd in the league in opponents’ points allowed, but a solid 7th in scoring.
The Timberwolves are led by their backcourt, as 4 of the 5 players averaging in double figures are guards. Andrew Wiggins leads the team in scoring and he is coming off a 24-point game in the win over the Heat.
The Timberwolves are giving up an average of 97.8 ppg on 41% shooting away from home compared to 109.8 ppg and on 50.6% shooting at home.
Karl-Anthony Towns is having a solid rookie season and is the 2nd leading scorer for Minnesota and the leading rebounder. On key match up in this game is he and Magic C Nikola Vucevic (16.5 ppg 8.4 rpg).
Orlando ranks 13th in the league in scoring and 16th in opponents’ points per game.
While the T-Wolves are led by their backcourt the Magic are led by forwards Evan Fournier and Tobias Harris and C Vucevic. G Victor Oladipo is the 3rd leading scorer for the team and he is a question mark tonight after missing the last 2 games after sustaining a concussion.
Harris has been playing great at home as of late averaging 20 ppg and 10.5 rpg in his last 4 games.
Not only have the Timberwolves won 5 of 6 road games this season, but they have covered the spread in all 6 games.
