Magic-Timberwolves Preview

MINNEAPOLIS -- Playing the second night of a back-to-back after traveling, the Minnesota Timberwolves faded Monday as the Charlotte Hornets used a 34-22 fourth quarter to turn pull away for a 16-point win.

Fourth quarters haven't been kind to Minnesota in back-to-backs. Losses have also lingered into the next game early this season for the Timberwolves, who return to action Wednesday against the visiting Orlando Magic.

"You know, I thought the rebounding got us probably more than anything," Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau said of the Monday loss. "A four-point game going into the fourth, and you've got to be at your best in the fourth, and the last two nights we haven't been."
