76ers snap 0-17 start with 85-77 win over Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Philadelphia 76ers were 16 seconds into their game against the Minnesota Timberwolves and Henry Sims was stepping to the free throw line when referee Zach Zarba blew his whistle and stopped the game.

Turns out the Sixers were going in the wrong direction, just like they have been all season long. The foul was wiped away, the teams switched sides and the game was restarted and the Sixers got pointed the right way.

The 76ers avoided tying the record for the worst start to a season in NBA history, ending their 0-17 skid with an 85-77 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

A loss to the Timberwolves would have tied the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets for the worst start to a season in league history at 0-18. Many of these Sixers, including point guard Michael Carter-Williams and coach Brett Brown, were part of the team that lost 26 straight games last season, which tied the record for consecutive losses.

One-and-17 never felt so good.

"For me personally, I think it's a big relief off my chest," Carter-Williams said. "And the same is for the rest of the guys now that we got a win."

Particularly the first one for a team with the youngest roster in league history.

"We feel like this validates the work they've put in," Brown said. "I just have a tremendous amount of respect for the fact that they never once quit on themselves, short-circuited a practice, and they were rewarded tonight."

Carter-Williams had 20 points, nine rebounds and nine assists and Robert Covington added 17 points in a game between two of the worst teams in the league.

The Sixers shot just 39 percent against the poorest defense in the NBA, turned the ball over 19 times and scored only nine points in the second quarter.

Gorgui Dieng had 15 points and 16 rebounds for the Timberwolves. But Minnesota shot just 35.7 percent and turned the ball over 19 times to lose for the 11th time in 13 games.

"That's what makes it bad," Wolves forward Corey Brewer said. "They play that bad and we still lose? We have to look at ourselves, man. It's tough. We can't lose that game, period."

The Sixers were missing leading scorer Tony Wroten and backup point guard Alexey Shved (hip), leaving them with one healthy point guard.

But the Timberwolves were ripe for the taking without injured starters Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin and Nikola Pekovic and playing their fourth game in six nights.

The teams combined for 66 points, 55 missed shots and 25 turnovers in the first two quarters. The Sixers led by 10 points after the first quarter - their first double-digit, first-quarter lead of the season - and 12 in the second quarter before the Wolves got going.

They closed the period on a 13-1 run to take a 34-32 lead into the break, but both teams spent most of the night clanking shots, fumbling passes and squandering opportunities.

Carter-Williams hit 9 of 20 shots and Covington, a call-up from the D-League, hit two big 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to give the Sixers a 69-64 lead.

Mo Williams capped an 11-2 spurt with a 3-pointer that gave the Wolves a 75-73 lead with 2:18 to play. But K.J. McDaniels, who air-balled his first two 3-pointers of the night, came right back with a 3 of his own and Covington's third 3 of the quarter with 1:15 left sealed it.

"Congrats lil homies," Sixers great Allen Iverson tweeted. "Keep fighting and stay strong."

TIP-INS

76ers: Brown improved to 20-80 in his first 100 games as coach, narrowly avoiding becoming just the fifth coach in NBA history to win fewer than 20 in his first 100. ... The Sixers missed their first 12 3-pointers. ... McDaniels finished with 12 points, nine rebounds and four blocks. ... The win snapped a string of 23 straight losses to Western Conference opponents.

Timberwolves: Andrew Wiggins was chosen Western Conference rookie of the month for November. He had 11 points and five rebounds. ... The Wolves held the Sixers to nine points in the second quarter, the second-lowest number in franchise history. ... Anthony Bennett played just less than four minutes in the game, with coach Flip Saunders saying he was upset with Bennett's effort.

PAYING HOMAGE

The Wolves honored Harold Gifford during the second quarter. Gifford was the co-pilot on a flight in 1960 carrying the Minneapolis Lakers that had to make an emergency landing in a cornfield in Iowa. Gifford is credited with helping make a safe landing and saving the lives of everyone on board.
