The Orlando Magic are on the road as they face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.
The Orlando Magic currently hold a record of 25-23 for this season, with a recent setback of losing 3 out of their last 5 games. Earlier in January, they faced off against the Timberwolves, where they managed to barely score 92 points. Most notably, Jalen Suggs and Paolo Banchero contributed a total of 38 points, while Moritz Wagner added 21 points coming off the bench. As they approach their upcoming game, the Magic are expected to have a fully fit roster.
The Timberwolves have been exceptional this season with a record of 34-14. Their recent performances have been impressive as they have emerged victorious in 4 out of their last 5 games. In their latest triumph against the Magic, the Timberwolves showcased their offensive prowess by scoring a remarkable 113 points. The big man duo of Karl-Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert played a pivotal role, contributing a total of 49 points, 18 rebounds, and 6 assists. Minnesota’s shooting accuracy was also commendable, with a field goal percentage of over 50% and a deep shooting percentage of 40%. Furthermore, it is worth noting that the Timberwolves will enter their upcoming game with a complete and healthy roster as well.
The Orlando Magic have proven themselves to be a decent defensive team, consistently allowing only 110.9 points per game throughout the season, currently ranking them 5th in the NBA. On top of that, the Timberwolves are not known for their high scoring abilities. Given this, it is highly likely that Orlando will be able to effectively contain the Timberwolves’ offense in this game.
Nevertheless, even though it should end up being a low scoring match, we still expect the Timberwolves to come out victorious.
