Timberwolves, 76ers seek consistency

MINNEAPOLIS -- Thanks to two of the most talented, new-generation centers along with talented newcomers, the Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves had high hopes entering this season.

December is not going the way either team expected as the 76ers travel to face the Timberwolves on Tuesday.

The immense expectations heaped on the Timberwolves with the addition of star Jimmy Butler to center Karl-Anthony Towns have led to some disappointment despite Minnesota sitting at 16-11 and fourth in the Western Conference.
