Timberwolves hand Magic sixth straight loss

(TSX / STATS) -- MINNEAPOLIS -- When Jeff Teague and the Minnesota Timberwolves' starters stayed on the bench to start the fourth quarter, Teague hoped he wouldn't be needed again Wednesday night.

The Orlando Magic and Minnesota's reserves ensured Teague and the Timberwolves' top unit were in for a longer night than expected.

Teague had 22 points and 11 assists to post his sixth double-double for Minnesota. Jimmy Butler tied a season high with 26 points, and Taj Gibson added a season-high 24 points as the Wolves held on for a 124-118 victory over Orlando.
