The last time Minnesota played the Magic, it didn't have Kevin Love or Ricky Rubio, and won by 15 anyway. Orlando hosts the rematch Monday.
Much has changed since the first meeting between these teams: Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio have returned to the Timberwolves' lineup, while Brandon Roy has exited it. Similarly, Josh McRoberts has dropped out of the Magic's rotation, allowing Maurice Harkless to take over at starting small forward. Starting point guard Jameer Nelson also missed the Magic's first game against the 'Wolves, but he's healthy and will play Monday.
