"Yeah, we're looking forward to it," head coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Our schedule was a challenge early on, but this is an opportunity for us come home, take it day-by-day and be ready to go. We know Orlando is a tough team and we have to be ready right from the start."

Going into the game against the Magic, the Wolves are trying to avoid a season-worst three-game losing streak.

"We do got to take care of our home floor, like we've said time and time again," Wolves forward Jimmy Butler said. "And, get back on track and on winning these games. You never want to lose one, let alone two in a row. Damn sure don't want to lose three in a row. So, now that we're back at home, we know what we have to do, but we have to go out there and execute." 

The Timberwolves head into the Magic game tied for fourth place in the Western Conference with a 10-7 record on the season.
