2012 NBA schedule: Timberwolves play Hornets, Mavericks this weekend

The Minnesota Timberwolves play back-to-back games Friday and Saturday.

Greg Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Timberwolves have won two straight games and will look to improve their streak and their position in the Western Conference with games this weekend against the New Orleans Hornets and Dallas Mavericks.

The Wolves play the Hornets in New Orleans. Minnesota has been solid on the road this season with a 4-6 record and New Orleans at 5-16 has been one of the worst teams in the league. It will be the first game between the two teams this season.

On Saturday, the Wolves host the Mavs, who they beat earlier in the season. Minnesota leads Dallas by a half game in the Western Conference standings.

Friday, Dec. 14 - Minnesota Timberwolves at New Orleans Hornets, 7 p.m. CT, Fox Sports Northwest

Saturday, Dec. 15 - Dallas Mavericks at Minnesota Timberwolves, 7 p.m. CT, Fox Sports Northwest
