The Wolves look to get over .500 for the first time this season when they take on the Magic in Orlando this evening. This is the first of a road back to back which concludes tomorrow in Miami.

The Magic are coming off their first win of the season Wednesday against the 76ers, and have struggled particularly on offense thus far. They feature a lot of young players including high profile rookies Elfrid Payton who is starting at point guard, and forward Aaron Gordon who comes off the bench. Four of their five starters are 24 or younger, the exception being free agent signee Channing Frye, so there is a lot to look forward to for Magic fans.

The present is pretty rocky though, and the Wolves really need to take advantage and get a win tonight, as this road trip gets much more difficult going forward.

I wrote a lot more in today's preview if you are interested.
