Game Preview: Orlando Magic at Minnesota Timberwolves
The Orlando Magic will look to rebound from their season-opening loss to the Indiana Pacers when they travel to Minnesota to take on the Timberwolves Wednesday night.
Tip-off from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota is scheduled for 8:00 pm EST and will be shown locally on FS Florida.
As always, if you can’t watch the game, you can listen on the radio – in English on AM 580 WDBO and in Spanish on AM 1270 WRLZ.
The officials for tonight’s game are Jason Phillips, Brian Forte and David Jones.
The Line: Minnesota -9.5 (197.5)
- Magic forward Tobias Harris missed Tuesday’s opener and won’t play Wednesday due to an ankle injury. Harris led the Magic in scoring after being acquired from the Milwaukee Bucks in a trade involving guard J.J. Redick last season.
- The Timberwolves couldn’t stay healthy last season, missing Love, Pekovic and Rubio for stretches of the season.
- In fact, Love, an all-star power forward, played in just 18 games last season. He still managed to average 18.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per game.
- Pekovic has a thigh injury, but participated in the Timberwolves’ scrimmage Sunday and should be fine to play Wednesday.
