Who’s Playing

Orlando @ Minnesota

Current Records: Orlando 1-6; Minnesota 3-2

What to Know

The Minnesota Timberwolves’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Orlando Magic at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 1 at Target Center. The Timberwolves are out to stop a four-game streak of losses at home.

Minnesota was close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 93-91 to the Denver Nuggets. The top scorer for Minnesota was shooting guard Malik Beasley (18 points).

Meanwhile, Orlando came up short against the Detroit Pistons this past Saturday, falling 110-103. Small forward Franz Wagner (19 points) was the top scorer for Orlando.

Minnesota is the favorite in this one, with an expected 9-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-3 against the spread when favored.

The losses put the Timberwolves at 3-2 and the Magic at 1-6. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Minnesota ranks fourth in the league when it comes to steals per game, with 10.8 on average. Less enviably, Orlando has allowed their opponents an average of 10.4 steals per game, the second most in the league. In other words, they will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
