What you need to know about magic
Orlando didn’t have too much wiggle room in their game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday, but still came away with a 108-102 victory. Orlando point guard Cole Anthony had 19 points and five assists while Wendell Carter Jr. had 13 points, eight rebounds and five cents.
Markelle Fultz (injury management) didn’t dress but he wasn’t even listed on Friday’s injury report. The former No. 1 overall pick has averaged 9.5 points, 3.8 assists and 2.5 rebounds in the four games he has played since being gone for more than a year due to a knee injury. Although he played just 16.8 minutes per game, his presence was a solid boost for an Orlando offense that ranks 28th in points per game and 29th in offensive efficiency.
What you need to know about the Timberwolves
Meanwhile, Minnesota made it easier for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday to claim a 132-102 victory. The game was pretty much decided at halftime, when the score had already reached 74-47. Minnesota can attribute much of its success to shooter Malik Beasley, who shot 11 for 17 from beyond the arc and finished with 33 points and five boards.
The Timberwolves offense is averaging 114.7 points per game, which is the best in the league despite the team only ranking 22nd in FG percentage. When the Karl-Anthony Towns trio, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell share the field together, Wolves are 27-17. However, when at least one of them sits, Minnesota is only 11-12. Edwards (knee) is questionable, as are Taurean Prince (back) and Jarred Vanderbilt (quad).
