Andrew Wiggins scored 35 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ 110-86 nationally-televised win Thursday night against the visiting Philadelphia Sixers.
Karl-Anthony Towns added 25 points and ten boards for Minny.
Joel Embiid had 10 points and ten rebounds in 23 minutes for the Sixers.
Per the AP:
“I think that they’re a lot further ahead for all the obvious reasons, and it’s not a lack of respect or disservice to our guys at all,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said. “This group that you’re looking at played with each other all last year, many, many, many, many games together.”
Dario Saric led the way with 16 points, but the 76ers lost their 21st straight road game.
“They’re young and they’re still going to get better, and that’s where we’ve got to get to,” Embiid said. “When you learn how to play with each other, it’s easier to play.”
