You probably haven't been paying attention, but AP reports the 76ers beat the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday -- to extend their winning streak to five games. "At 20-31, the Sixers head to Toronto for a game Wednesday and then come out of the break with games against the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls, teams ahead of them for playoff position. "I have happy we have got a little bit of a wave, but I am not going to be really happy until we get to .500," Coach Eddie Jordan said. "That is the mindset we need. Right now, it's good that we're playing with a good personality and a good mindset." Though still a long shot, five straight wins can change perspective. "When you're four or five games out of the playoffs and you got teams ahead of you that you're playing, it's much more feasible," forward Elton Brand said. "If we beat those teams, we're that much closer. This win streak really helps us."
