The Wolves blew a big early lead but held on for a 120-115 win in overtime over the Orlando Magic Wednesday night at Target Center. Minnesota led 38-27 after one quarter of play, and looked like they were going to run away with the game early.

However, the offense came back to Earth, and the Magic got over their jet lag in the second half to take the Wolves down to the wire.

Kevin Love’s three pointer with seconds remaining in the fourth quarter tied the game 103-103 and salvaged what would have been a disappointing loss for the Wolves, who managed just 16 points in the fourth quarter.

Love was outstanding in his first game with the Wolves in the last 300 days, scoring 31 points while pulling down 17 rebounds. The forward missed time last season with hand injuries.

Corey Brewer scored 16 points for Minnesota and Kevin Martin added 23 on 6-19 shooting.

Aaron Affalo led the Magic with 28 points on 11-22 shooting.

The Wolves host the Oklahoma City Thunder Friday night at Target Center.
