Wolves need to start turning it around

The Minnesota Timberwolves just haven't been able to find their groove this season.

After reaching the Western Conference finals a year ago, the Timberwolves are a mere 6-5 this season and have concerns. Point guard Sam Cassell's play hasn't been up to last year's high level. The team isn't good at shooting three-pointers, has often been outhustled and even struggles on occasion getting Kevin Garnett involved in the offense.

On Thursday night the Wolves lost to an undermanned Indiana Pacers team. Earlier, center Michael Olowokandi was suspended for the game by the team after being arrested at an Indianapolis nightclub early Thursday morning.

The season remains young and the Timberwolves can still right their ship. But they don't want to start developing bad chemistry and work habits that can often nag a team for an entire season.
