On Wednesday, January 20th, Inter-Conference foes will meet as the Orlando Magic and the Minnesota Timberwolves will face off for the first time this season and enter off a days rest.
The Orlando Magic’s season has been one of inconsistency and full of streaks. After winning their first four games of the season, Orlando also put together a two-game losing and winning streak. The Magic have lost their last six games, most recently falling to the Knicks 91-84.
The Magic will be without young point guard Markelle Fultz who is out for the year with a torn ACL as well as reserves Al-Farouq Aminu, Mo Bamba and Michael Carter-Williams due to injury or protocols.
Orlando is scoring on average only 104.5 points per game which is 28th in the NBA. Their problem has been poor shooting as the Magic are hitting just 42.9% of their shots overall and 31.7% from long distance. Nikola Vucevic is the leading scorer for Orlando with an average of 22.9 ppg.

Minnesota has had a rough beginning to the season as they find themselves last in the Western Conference at 3-9. The Timberwolves began the season with a two-game winning streak, before losing seven straight games. After finally ending the streak with a win over San Antonio, the Timberwolves lost their last two games to Memphis and Atlanta. That leaves Minnesota with losses in 8 of their last 9 games with 7 of those losses coming by more than 7 points.
Star forward Karl-Anthony Towns is out after testing positive for COVID-19, the diseases that has had a serious impact on his life after taking his mother and several other members in his family within the past year. The team has gone 2-2 with Town in the lineup and 1-7 without. Ricky Rubio and forward Juancho Hernangomez were placed in quarantine last Friday as well and remain out.
Minnesota weakness has been on the defensive end as the Timberwolves are allowing an average of 117.8 points per game which is 27th in the NBA.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
This is a matchup between two struggling teams both looking for a win to get back on track. Both sides are dealing with injuries as well as players on the COVID protocol list leaving each lineup very depleted. Whichever team can find production from their usual bench players will have the advantage in this one.
The Magic’s offense has been stagnant and holding the team back over their 6 game losing streak. Luckily for them the Timberwolves weakness is there defense which will play to Orlando’s favor especially with big man Karl-Anthony Towns no longer patrolling the paint. Orlando’s struggles have to end eventually and I see that happening here. They have found success against Minnesota in the past covering their last 6 matchups and 6 of 7 when they play them at the Target Center.
