Our Will Ogburn writes that the Magic-Timberwolves game had a little bit of everything: a career-night by Evan Fournier, a strong performance by the unlikely big man duo of Bismack Biyombo and Khem Birch, a haymaker thrown by Arron Afflalo, and of course, the Magic’s upset victory over the red-hot Wolves.
Arron Afflalo threw a punch at Nemanja Bjelica and was then put in a headlock.
Nemanja Bjelica said after the game that he was just trying to protect himself and that Afflalo was “wild.”

Evan Fournier had a career-high 32 points and earned an ‘A’ for his performance, but he didn’t receive the best grade on the Magic on Tuesday thanks to Bismack Biyombo and Khem Birch, writes Philip Rossman-Reich in his nightly grades column for Orlando Magic Daily.
The Wolves showed bad habits in their loss to the Magic, writes Josh Clement of Canis Hoopus.
