Minnesota finally pleased its fans with a bright game and a victorious result – last time Ryan Saunders’ team spent on a visit against Miami, she managed to absolutely sensational win with a score 129-126. Much has been said about Miami’s confident play on the home floor (this defeat was only the fourth home game of the season for Heat), but for Minnesota itself this victory was the second in the last twenty regular season bouts.
Timberwoolves won without his main star, Carl-Anthony Towns is still in the Infirmary, and the best in the Miami contest was rookie D’Angelo Russell, who scored 27 points, made 5 rebounds and 6 assistants. Malik Beesley also looked great in Minnesota, finishing off with a 21+6+5 lineup. In the Western standings, Saunders’ team is still in the penultimate position, with only 17 wins in 57 regular season games.
Ryan Saunders team hasn’t won away for nine games in a row, and that’s no surprise for the penultimate line of the Western Conference. The team has a three-fold advantage in favor of losses at the end of the season so far, and such a prolonged series of losses this year is not uncommon for them.
Orlando won their last regular championship bout on the road with a score of 130-120. If the teams took a long break with a tied score, the third quarter was a watershed – Magic won it by a 9-point lead, which was a powerful setback for the final success. The best of them was Evan Fournier, who scored 28 points, made 4 rebounds and 5 assistants. It is also impossible not to mention Aaron Gordon who showed the realization of 75% because of the three-point arc, and in total he collected a double-double of 25 points and 10 rebounds. For Orlando this victory was the second round and already the fourth in the last five games of the regular season – Clifford’s team is more and more firmly established in the playoff zone of the Eastern Conference, holding the 8th position with the indexes 26-32.
Steve Clifford’s players have won only five wins in 15 games, which is certainly not an acceptable result for the play-off zone, and continuing to play in the same way, they may leave the play-off zone by the end of the season.

Timberwolves vs Magic Prediction
We’re not waiting for a second set of Minnesota sensations – Ryan Saunders’ team managed to surprise us on Miami Park, but it was only a small episode. Two wins in the last twenty games of the regular season speak for themselves – Timberwolves’ roaster is very weak, and they won’t be able to rise above their current 14th place in the Western Conference table. Orlando is in very good shape now – Steve Clifford’s team is confidently moving towards the playoffs, and in the game against Minnesota we expect another victory in its performance.
