Orlando Magic defeat Minnesota Timberwolves, 106-97

ORLANDO — At least Kurt Rambis doesn't have to get that sticky champagne out of his sport coat this time.

The last time Rambis coached at Amway Arena, he left the building joyously soaked in the bubbly residue of an NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers last June.

On Friday, he left less ceremoniously after his Timberwolves lost their 15th consecutive game and their 21st in the past 22 games, 106-97, to an Orlando team aimed for another run at the title.
