Timberwolves, Magic, to end their disappointments this season

The Minnesota Timberwolves and the Orlando Magic are two teams in the NBA that are both struggling this season which ended up in disappointments. It will be the Timberwolves hosting the Magic when they meet on November 17, 2022, at 8:00 AM (GMT+8). The Timberwolves is just a little better than the Magic when it comes to their conference standings. The hosts are with a record of 6-8, and are currently the 10th in the Western Conference. As for the visitors, they are now at the 13th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 4-10. However, the team that needs more wins here is the Magic as they are below the relegation in the standings.

These two teams have been very disappointed in their recent campaign in the NBA, especially the Timberwolves. They had a three-game losing streak before their last match against the Cleveland Cavaliers which ended in a victory. They are just thankful to finally end their losing streak because if not, they will drop to a bad place. As for the Magic, they are lucky to win two out of their three matches, and is looking to be a team to rise. They are a team who can no longer afford to lose one more game because it will make them drop to the standings more. The Magic is a team composed of talented and young players, so they will surely find a way to earn more wins this season.

Minnesota Timberwolves

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves is one of the most surprising team in the NBA, following their move to acquire Rudy Gobert. This team is currently at 6-8, after putting an end on their three-game losing streak when they won versus Cleveland. They rely on their young players to make a difference in their future matches. What is good in this squad is that if their players starts to go hot, it will be very hard to stop them. They are becoming unstoppable, once they were able to get their momentum going. This is what happened when Garland provided numbers for the Timberwolves on their last meeting. Now, they are averaging 114 points per game, and allow 115.8 points per game defensively.

The addition of Gobert on their squad is a good thing especially for Towns as he can now play more in the perimeter. Currently, Karl-Anthony Towns is the one leading the Timberwolves with an average of 21.3 points per game. Anthony Edwards also provide 21.3 points per game and D’Angelo Russel. Rudy Gobert leads the Timberwolves when it comes to rebounding, averaging 13.6 rebounds per game.

Orlando Magic

NBA: Orlando Magic

For a team who has one of the youngest squads in the league, the Magic’s current results is actually not surprising. However, this might be an advantage for them as they have the stamina more than other team has. In their last 10 games, they have a 4-6 record, the results from the major injuries they are facing right now. On their last game against the Hornets, they fell short in a 112-105 loss. However, it is because of the fact that they played without Paolo Banchero due to the ankle injury he sustained. Now, they are currently averaging 110.4 points per game, and allow 112.4 points per match.

Paolo Banchero is still their number one scorer with an average of 23.5 points per game, followed by Franz Wagner with 18.3 points per game. Wendall Carter Jr. and Cole Anthony are also providing numbers for the Magic. However, the bad news for the Magic is that Banchero and Carter are questionable in this match. On the other hand, Anthony and Harris are both out.
