Minnesota Timberwolves 101

Orlando Magic 104 ot

The Orlando Magic rallied from a 14-point deficit in the second half to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 104-101 in overtime.

1. Fournier for three

Evan Fournier scored 26 points – 19 in the second half and overtime – as he led the Magic back for the victory.

Fournier's night included five three-pointers including one in the closing seconds of overtime to give the Magic the lead for good.

2. Wiggins would't give in

Andrew Wiggins led the Wolves, knocking down some big shots on his own. He finished with 28 points on 8-of-17 from the field.

Wiggins also got to the free throw line going 12-of-14 from the stripe.

His night also included a bucket with just over two seconds left to tie the game and eventually force overtime, but it just didn't go Minnesota's way in the closing seconds.

3. Wolves going to Towns

Karl-Anthony Towns is barely 10 games into his NBA career and he's already becoming a go-to-guy for the Timberwolves.

Towns finished the game with 21 points and 12 rebounds for his sixth double-double in seven road games and his eighth of the season.

Towns also had five blocks in the game, including one at the end of regulation on Tobias Harris to send the game into overtime.
