ORLANDO, Fla. -- In a season-long search for success, the Orlando Magic found a few things to celebrate in their victory over the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves. Arron Afflalo broke out of a six-game shooting slump and Kyle OQuinn rebounded from a dreadful game the night before to help the Magic rally from a 13-point second-half deficit and defeat the Timberwolves 100-92 Saturday night. Afflalo, who hadnt scored in double figures his last three games and was 14 of 47 (29 per cent) from the field in his last five, hit 8 of 15 from the field and scored 18 points against Minnesota, which played without injured starters Kevin Love, Kevin Martin and Nikola Pekovic and lost replacement starter Chase Budinger in the first minute of the game with an ankle injury. OQuinn, who was just 5 of 20 and got exploited by Al Jefferson in a loss to Charlotte Friday night, came back with 14 points and 13 rebounds against the Timberwolves. Tobias Harris and Maurice Harkless added 17 points apiece for the Magic. Rookie Victor Oladipo contributed 16 points and six assists, plus good defence in the fourth quarter against Timberwolves playmaker Ricky Rubio to help Orlando end a three-game losing streak. Orlando shot 60.5 per cent in the second half and pounded the Timberwolves on the boards, 40-30. "There were a lot of good story lines from this game," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. "We got a lot of contributions all across the board. We had 29 assists, hit the open guy and trusted the consequences of whatever came from it." OQuinns performance was important because the Magic had their own injury problem with starting centre Nikola Vucevic missing a second straight game with a sore Achilles tendon. His replacement, Dewayne Dedmon, scored on his first shot of the game, but didnt make another shot and played only 14 minutes. That put the onus on OQuinn to control the inside and he responded with one of the best games of his career. "Last night was a rough night for me," OQuinn said. "There were points where I could have made a shot and turned things around, but we lost so I had to bounce back. You have to have a short memory, but we stuck together and got the result we wanted." Minnesota got 18 points and 10 assists from Rubio, but he couldnt find many familiar faces in the lineup with him when the game went down to the final four minutes with the Timberwolves trying to hold on to an 89-88 lead. Reserves were filling the roles usually played by Love, Martin and Pekovic. The result was an 0-for-6 stretch that allowed Orlando to go on a 10-1 run and put the game away. "Were playing combinations that havent played before and you get to the fourth quarter and things really start affecting you," Minnesota coach Rick Adelman said. "Guys played hard, but we just couldnt finish it." Dante Cunningham, who missed one game after being arrested for domestic assault, rejoined the Timberwolves and scored 12 points. "When you play with guys like Kevin Love or Kevin Martin, you know where they like to play," Rubio said. "When youre playing with new guys, you have to figure it out. We just ran out of energy. We have to fight through it." The Magic rallied from 12 points down with five minutes to go in the third quarter. The combination of sloppy ball handling by the Magic and Rubio having his way against a porous Magic defence allowed the Timberwolves to push a 48-46 halftime lead up to 13 points in the third quarter. When Rubio went to the bench, Minnesotas offensive rhythm went with him. Oladipo and Harris took advantage, helping the Magic close the gap to 77-72 by the end of the third quarter and open the final period with an 8-2 run. A steal and jam by Harris gave Orlando an 80-79 advantage with 8:38 left. Minnesota reclaimed the lead with another drive through the lane by Rubio giving the Timberwolves an 89-88 lead with 4:26 left in the game. Oladipo drilled another 3 to start Orlando on the clinching 10-1 run.

Tottenham was drawn against the Ukrainian side on Monday, an hour after Andre Villas-Boas was fired as manager following a 5-0 loss to Liverpool in the Premier League. Dnipro is coached by Juande Ramos, who was also fired by Tottenham, in 2008. After its controversial Champions League exit in Turkey, Juventus will again travel there for the second leg against Trabzonspor. Juve dropped down to the Europa League after losing 1-0 to Galatasaray in atrocious weather and pitch conditions in a match that was suspended and later completed almost 18 hours after it kicked off. The loss left the Italian side last in in its Champions League group. "Im not very happy about going back to Turkey, it didnt go well for us recently," Juve director Pavel Nedved said. "Itt will be a long and hard trip.ddddddddddddWe will have to find the right motivation to approach the game as Juventus should." One incentive for Juventus is that the May 14 final will be played in its home stadium in Turin. Napoli, which also dropped out of the Champions League, was drawn to play away first against Premier League side Swansea. Viktoria Plzen plays Shakhtar Donetsk in a pairing of teams which started the season in the Champions League. Porto, which won the 2011 Europa League with Villas-Boas as coach, will play Eintracht Frankfurt. Dynamo Kyiv hosts Valencia, the 2004 winner. Sevilla, which won in 2006 and 07, is away to Maribor. First-leg matches are played Feb. 20, with return legs on Feb. 27. UEFA also drew the last-16 pairings which will be played in March. Juventus can potentially face Serie A rival Fiorentina, Sevilla could play fellow La Liga club Real Betis, and Tottenham could face Benfica.
