Timberwolves Schedule 2012: Minnesota Face Extended Roadtrip In Four-Game Week

The Minnesota Timberwolves have four straight road games in a tough week.

The Minnesota Timberwolves haven't been all that good on the road, but after the NBA All Star Break they're going to need to find their road form very quickly as they start off playing four straight in a week away from Target Center. At .500 right now, they're going to need to push themselves to stay there and get a winning record sustained for the first time this season -- and in fact the first time in a while.

The 17-17 Wolves start with two tough tests as they stay at the Staples Center twice for a back to back against the Los Angeles Clippers followed by the Los Angeles Lakers. Both the Clippers and the Lakers are having fine seasons for themselves, with Chris Paul's Clippers at 20-11 and Kobe Bryant's Lakers at 20-14. Kobe as usual had a fine showing at the All Star game, even breaking a record in the process. Those games will be Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

Thursday sees the Wolves face their third game in a row as they stay on the West coast, heading South to face the Phoenix Suns. At 14-20, the Suns are stuck in a sort of limbo right now. They still have Steve Nash and Steve Nash is still playing like Nash usually does, but past that there's not much to report on their roster.

The Wolves will only have one game on the weekend, heading North to meet the Portland Trailblazers. After that, they can start to play some home games again.
