It was supposed to be a match up between arguably the two best big men in the game.
Kevin Love vs. Dwight Howard.
What it turned out to be was an easy team orientated Orlando Magic 102-89 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Six Magic players reached double digits led by Jason Richardson’s 17 points. Hedo Turkgolu, Jameer Nelson, and J.J. Reddick all finished with 14 points each.
Howard was riddled in foul trouble and contributed just 11 points and 7 rebounds in 28 minutes. Kevin Love lived up to the minor hype and delivered another routine double double with 19 points and 15 rebounds but was unable to put his team in position to win.

Barea and Ricky Rubio combined for 12 of the 17 turnovers and the lack of point guard play killed the Wolves in this game.
