Newcomers Lead T-Wolves To Preseason Win
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves got a glimpse of what could be their future in a 116-110 preseason victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on last night.
Veteran free agent guard Mo Williams had 19 points, seven assists and six rebounds, and rookie high-flyer Zach LaVine scored 15 points in the win.
First overall pick Andrew Wiggins, who came to Minnesota in the Kevin Love trade, scored 11 points in his home debut, including slamming home an alley-oop provided by Ricky Rubio, who dished out nine assists.
2013 first-overall pick Anthony Bennett, who also came over in the Love trade, added 13 points and eight rebounds.
With the win, the Wolves improve to 1-1 in the preseason and will host Nate Wolters and the Milwaukee Bucks Friday.
