Rick Adelman - Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE
Wednesday, Orlando visits Target Center for the first time in nearly two years.
Minnesota is off to a 2-1 start despite missing Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. Its most recent victory came Monday night as it rallied from a 22-point deficit to knock off the Brooklyn Nets, 107-96, on the road at Barclays Center. Andrei Kirilenko stuffed the stat sheet with 16 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, and four blocked shots, but he wasn't the only Minnesota gadget forward to pop off: Dante Cunningham contributed 11 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks off the bench.
Orlando will be playing for the second time in as many nights, having lost to the Chicago Bulls at United Center on Election Day. Glen Davis missed 15 of his 22 shot attempts, while at the other end the Magic didn't have an answer for All-Star forward Luol Deng, who scored 23 points.
