Modest goals remain when Timberwolves host Lakers

MINNEAPOLIS -- The flickering hopes of challenging for a playoff spot were doused by a grueling stretch of road games for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Minnesota begins a three-game homestand against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday with only the possibility of improvement on last season remaining. Los Angeles is heading toward another high pick in the NBA Draft with the league's second-worst record.

Two of the NBA's youngest teams are all too familiar with their current position: playing out the string in the season's final weeks.
