PHILADELPHIA –– The Sixers entered Monday’s game fresh off of four straight victories, all of which came on the road. In their return to Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia couldn’t keep the streak alive, falling to the Minnesota Timberwolves 126-95.

The Sixers outshot the Timberwolves 47.5% to 46.0% from the floor, but a 30-11 differential in points off of turnovers, as well as a 48-24 advantage in points off of three-pointers helped seal the game for Minnesota.

Thaddeus Young led Philadelphia with 20 points on 9-of-16 shooting. Michael Carter-Williams added 13 points, seven assists, and four rebounds, and James Anderson came off the bench to contribute 14 points and seven rebounds in 22 minutes.

The Sixers return to action Tuesday, as they take on the Cavaliers in Cleveland at 7pm.
