The Nikola Peković Show returns to televisions everywhere tonight when the Minnesota Timberwolves head to Orlando to play the Magic. Pekovic, who has been on an offensive tear his last six games, will face the stiffest test the NBA has to offer: a matchup with Orlando center Dwight Howard, who has already compiled 22 double-doubles this season.
The 26-year old center put up 21 points and 13 rebounds in Minnesota's last game, though another stellar Jeremy Lin effort overshadowed everything. If Pekovic can again post another solid effort against the greatest defensive big man of the generation, it'll go a long way to proving his production is sustainable.
Location: Amway Center, Orlando, FL.
Date and Time: Monday, February 13, 6:00 p.m.
