2012 NBA schedule: Timberwolves head south to face Heat, Magic

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Minnesota makes the rounds in Florida this week.

The Minnesota Timberwolves visit the Orlando Magic at 6 p.m. CT on Monday night in the first of back-to-back games in the Sunshine State. The Timberwolves have been hot as of late, having won four-straight games. Minnesota has a prime opportunity to extend their streak, as Orlando possesses just a 5-6 home record.

Things will get much tougher on Tuesday as the Timberwolves take their talents to South Beach and meet the Miami Heat at 6:30 p.m. at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Heat have been vulnerable at times, but have won 11 of 13 games at home.

Around the league, Jeremy Lin makes his return to Madison Square Garden as the Rockets face the Knicks at 7:30 p.m. on Monday. A key Western Conference battle also happens on Monday, as the Thunder face the Spurs at 8 p.m. in Oklahoma City.

The Knicks host another big game on Wednesday as they continue the "Battle of the Boroughs" series at 7 p.m. against the Brooklyn Nets.
