Young guns square off as 76ers host 'Wolves

Two of the top young post players in the NBA will take center stage on Saturday night in Philadelphia when Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves travel to Wells Fargo Arena to play Joel Embiid and the 76ers in a game with important playoff implications.

Philadelphia, the hottest team in the Eastern Conference with five straight wins, including Thursday's balanced 118-98 win over the Orlando Magic, has crept up to the fourth seed in the East playoff race, one game behind the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third seed. Still, heading into Friday's games, just five games separated the third-seeded Cavs from the eighth-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.

"We respect the journey," Philadelphia coach Brett Brown told reporters in Orlando. "We don't intend on letting what we built so far go easily. We are aware of where we're at. We want to hold onto where we're at. And we want to play good basketball."
