Preview: The Wolves take a three-game losing streak -- one fueled by mistakes and turnovers on offense -- to Orlando to face a Magic team that might be getting its groove back. After losing four in a row, Orlando has won five of its past seven games and sits in sixth place in the East.
Players to watch: Wolves F Kevin Love got his franchise-record sixth 30-plus-point, 20-plus-rebound game Saturday against New York. He has back-to-back 32-point games since his return from suspension, with 33 rebounds in those two games. C Nikola Pekovic picked up his fifth double-double Saturday, all five coming in the past 10 games. PG Ricky Rubio has gone three games without getting 10 assists, matching his longest such streak of the season. Magic C Dwight Howard is averaging 20.6 points and 15.5 rebounds per game but is coming off an 11-point performance vs. Milwaukee, his lowest point total in 16 games. F Ryan Anderson has scored in double figures 23 times. G Jason Richardson is coming off a 31-point performance vs. Milwaukee.
Numbers: Howard (15.5) and Love (13.9) are 1-2 in the league in rebounding. The Wolves are 6-5 on the road this season. Orlando is 28-16 all-time vs. the Wolves. Orlando has won six consecutive vs. Minnesota, and that includes a 42-point Orlando victory early last season.
Injuries: Wolves C Darko Milicic (ankle) is questionable. G Malcolm Lee completed his rehab stint in the D-League over the weekend but did not travel to Orlando. Orlando reports no injuries.
