NBA scores: Timberwolves lose road back-to-back

Mike Ehrmann

Minnesota's four-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt this week, as they dropped both ends of a back-to-back to the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat.

The Minnesota Timberwolves had a tough start to the week, losing both ends of a back-to-back on the road to the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat. The two losses on Monday and Tuesday night put a stop to Minnesota's four-game winning streak, and they have a tough job ahead of them on Thursday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder if they want to avoid a three-game losing streak.

The Timberwolves were done in by poor outside shooting against the Magic, who won by a 102-93 score. Minnesota shot only 28% from three-point range, and Kevin Love's 23 points and 15 rebounds weren't enough to bail them out. Glen Davis went off for 28 points and five rebounds to lead the Magic.

The story was the same against the Heat, who beat the Timberwolves 103-92. Minnesota went only 4-17 from downtown. Both Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic had double-doubles, but the team also turned the ball over 19 times.

The Wolves come back home to play the Thunder on Thursday night, but face an uphill battle against a red hot team that has won 12-straight games.
