Ricky Rubio - Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

One night after opening their season in Indianapolis, the Magic head to the Twin Cities for Minnesota's home opener.

The Orlando Magic travel to the Twin Cities on Wednesday to conclude their season-opening back-to-back set with a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Tipoff between Orlando and Minnesota is set for 8 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 6 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic wilted after halftime in Tuesday's 97-87 loss to the Indiana Pacers. The home team built a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter as the Magic's offense struggled to generate good looks and their defense became more permissive. All-Star swingman Paul George scored 25 for Indiana, while Andrew Nicholson scored all of his Orlando-leading 18 points in the first half.

Minnesota's last time out: The Timberwolves concluded their preseason with a 99-98 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. Pistons forward Josh Smith hit the winning three-pointer as time expired, sending Minnesota to defeat despite 19 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists from Kevin Love.
