Magic find way to win as Howard, Carter are shut down


By Phil Miller, for NBA.com

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- On paper, the Timberwolves' gameplan made perfect sense. Pack the lane, deny Dwight Howard the ball, force the Magic to rely on outside shots.

Boston executed the strategy to perfection a week ago in a victory at Orlando. But here's the flaw in Minnesota's gameplan: The Wolves aren't the Celtics.

Once the Magic realized that fact, they adjusted their game, blitzed the Wolves with a pair of impressive fourth-quarter runs, and won in Minneapolis for the fourth straight season, 106-94 in Target Center.

"We sort of refocused ourselves in the second half, and it made a difference," said Matt Barnes, whose second straight start resulted in the Magic's second straight win. "They handled us pretty well in the first half, with the way they wanted to play."

Minnesota wanted to play a Howard-free game, essentially, and they did a reasonable job of it. With two Wolves big men guarding the basket at all times, Howard was held to just nine points, the second time in three games -- the Celtics game being the other -- that he failed to reach double-digits.

"Obviously their plan was (to) stay in the paint and let us shoot," said Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. "They did a good job of limiting Dwight."

And with Orlando's center neutralized at the offensive end, the Timberwolves managed to stay even with the Eastern Conference champs for three quarters, even taking a two-point lead with 10 minutes to play. "They went under every pick-and-roll, they let Jameer (Nelson) shoot, they let our four-men (power forwards) stand out there and shoot," Van Gundy said. "The way we shot, that worked pretty well for awhile. At the end, not so well."

That's putting it mildly. Orlando was 9-for-27 from the 3-point line during the first three quarters, but in the fourth quarter, they showed why they lead the NBA in treys. While Minnesota defenders draped themselves on Howard, Orlando sharpshooters hit six of 10 3-pointers to pull away and snap a three-game road losing streak.

"If we get those kind of shots," Van Gundy understated, "we're going to knock them down."

Ryan Anderson, who missed his first five 3-pointers, was the catalyst to the Magic's first critical spurt. With Minnesota holding a 77-75 lead on, of all things, a pair of 3-pointers by rookie Wayne Ellington, Anderson suddenly found his stroke. He nailed a trey on three of four Orlando possessions, Jason Williams hit one of his own on the other possession, and the Magic rode a 14-4 run to an eight-point lead.

It wasn't completely fatal to the Wolves' chances, but Minnesota ranks 26th in offense for a reason. So when Nelson hit another 3-pointer a few minutes later, the Wolves appeared flustered. They went three minutes without a point, and Orlando finished them off with a 10-0 run.

"They didn't put anyone outside on Ryan or Rashard (Lewis), and they made nine three-pointers between them," Van Gundy said.

Lewis finished with 21 points, Anderson 16 and Nelson 16, as Orlando made 15 of 37 3-pointers. Matt Barnes added 17 points for the Magic, who have won five of their last six games. Vince Carter joined Howard in a sub-par night, managing only 12 points on 3-for-10 shooting.

The flurry of fourth-quarter treys didn't bother Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis as much as his team's offensive failures. "I know that 3-pointers, whenever a team makes them, it just puts a weight on you. The crowd groans, and this weight just seems to bear down on top of you," said Rambis, whose team has lost three straight. "But we lost the game because we turned over the basketball. Everything we did seemed fine except for taking care of the ball. That's what cost us the game, in my mind."

The Wolves piled up 12 turnovers in the first half, to just three for Orlando, allowing the Magic to open a six-point lead. And Minnesota committed five more in the fourth quarter, foiling any comeback plans.

Orlando's long-range shooting seemed to encourage the Wolves to shoot 3-pointers, too, a dangerous game considering Minnesota ranks 27th in treys while Orlando is the league-leader. But the Wolves actually were successful for awhile, making eight of 18 on the night -- a 44 percent success rate from outside, compared to their 43 percent shooting from inside the line. Jonny Flynn made five 5-pointers, and finished with a game-high 23 points.

But Orlando began rebounding with intensity as the game went on, taking away one of the Wolves' most important advantages. Minnesota had 14 offensive rebounds in the first half, eight of them by Kevin Love, while Orlando had just 13 defensive boards. But the second half was a lot different: the Wolves managed only three offensive boards, none by Love.

"We really changed our mentality on the glass," Van Gunday said. "We got absolutely crushed in the first half. I thought that was huge, that we changed that whole mentality around. I just wish we could do it the entire game."
