NBA schedule 2012: Philadelphia welcomes Kevin Love to town

The 76ers will host the Timberwolves and Kevin Love in what should be a tough game for Philadelphia.

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The Philadelphia 76ers are playing well at 10-7, despite coming off a loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.

Now, they go into another week with a tough test at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Now with Kevin Love back in the mix, Minnesota is a legitimate playoff contender in the tough Western Conference. The perennial All-Star talent is leading his team in both scoring and rebounding, with 21.7 and 15.3 per game respectively.

Other interesting games around the league include the Oklahoma City Thunder making their first trip to Barclays Center on Tuesday to take on the Brooklyn Nets. Brooklyn is trying to rebound after losing in Miami over the weekend, while Oklahoma City tries to extend its five-game winning streak. The New York Knicks at the Miami Heat meet on Thursday night. New York waxed the Heat 104-84 in its season opener, so LeBron James and Co. will be out for revenge
