Magic go for 50 wins tonight against T-Wolves

The Magic (49-29, 24-15 home) will shoot for their 50th win of the season as they host MIN (19-59, 5-33 road) tonight. The Timberwolves have the worst road record in the NBA and the third worst record overall. They are coming off a 122-90 home loss WED night against NO.

G Sebastian Telfair is questionable for tonight's game with an ankle injury, while C Mike Doleac and F Antoine Walker will not play.

The projected starting lineup for MIN:

G... Randy Foye (12.1 ppg)
G... Marko Jaric (8.2 ppg)
F... Kirk Snyder (7.0 ppg)
F... Ryan Gomes (12.5 ppg, 5.6 rebs)
C... Al Jefferson (21.1 ppg, 11.2 rebs)

Top reserves: Rashad McCants (14.7 ppg); Craig Smith (9.4 ppg); Corey Brewer (5.6 ppg)

With the trade of superstar Kevin Garnett to BOS, obviously the Timberwolves are in a rebuilding mode but have some good young talent. Magic are 12 1/2 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).
