We’ll get an idea tonight just how scrappy the Timberwolves really are when they host Orlando. The Wolves have lost seven straight to the Magic, but are a surprising 2-1 so far on the young season without stars Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio.

The last time these two teams met, it was a 13-point win for Orlando, back in February. The Magic prevailed even though Dwight Howard had just 11 points on the night.

Tonight, Minnesota's Andrei Kirilenko could be the key. He's averaged 14.0 points against Orlando in his career, his second-highest mark against any opponent.
