NBA standings 2012: Timberwolves fighting to stay alive in competitive Northwest

Greg Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Timberwolves shouldn't be too panicked about their recent struggles but they better get their act together soon.

After dropping their past two games, the Timberwolves (13-13) are now fourth in the NBA's most well-rounded division.

Each of those losses have been by only three points to likely playoff teams though so Minnesota fans shouldn't be too concerned about the recent cold streak.

Looking ahead, the Timberwolves will have plenty of time to make up ground with four of their next six games being against divisional foes.

But before they can get into that portion, Minnesota will be playing host to a reeling Phoenix Suns team Saturday evening. The Suns have lost four in a row and 11 of their last 15 so it shouldn't be too difficult for the Timberwolves to take care of business.

Below are the complete Western Conference standings:
