MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Luke Ridnour had 19 points and five rebounds, and Greg Stiemsma got Minnesota’s rout started with six straight points to end the third quarter.

Stiemsma finished with 12 points and five rebounds, and Derrick Williams added 14 points and six boards for the Timberwolves, who are 3-1 for the first time since 2001. They led an ugly game by three points early in the third period before going on a staggering 28-6 surge that blew open the game.

J.J. Redick had 16 points, but the Magic shot just 35 percent and turned the ball over 20 times to lose their second straight game. Arron Afflalo added 12 points for Orlando.
