Wolves Fall To Sixers In Battle Of NBA’s Worst Teams
PHILADELPHIA -- The Minnesota Timberwolves lost their 38th game of the season; a 103-94 clunker to the Philadelphia 76ers.
After the loss, Minnesota retains the NBA's worst record (8-38), while Philadelphia moves ahead (or is it behind?) of the 9-38 New York Knicks.
The Wolves were led by Kevin Martin's 19 points off the bench and center Nikola Pekovic added 18.
Andrew Wiggins scored 15 points - the 20th straight game in which the rookie has scored in double digits.
Gorgui Dieng notched a double-double - finishing with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
In an ironic twist, former Timberwolves bench warmer Luc Richard Mbah a Moute led the Sixers with 18 points while flat-topped rookie center Nerlens Noel swatted away six shot attempts.
With the loss, the Wolves drop to a league-worst 8-38 on the season and will play former franchise-player Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at Target Center.
