ORLANDO, Fla. (KTTC-DT/AP) -- Dwight Howard had 18 points, 16 rebounds and eight blocked shots to help the Orlando Magic set a franchise record for most points in the first half in a 128-86 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
Vince Carter had 20 points, Ryan Anderson scored 19 and the Magic shook up the starting lineup to score 78 points in the opening half for an easy win. Orlando started Anderson at power forward, moved Rashard Lewis to small forward and bumped Quentin Richardson out of the starting lineup.
The new-look lineup worked just fine.
Kevin Love had 22 points and Corey Brewer scored 12 for the Timberwolves, who lost on consecutive nights in Florida by 74 points. Minnesota fell by 32 a night earlier in Miami.
