Since being founded in 1989, the Minnesota Timberwolves have historically had strong rosters featuring NBA All-Stars including former Philadelphia 76er Jimmy Butler and current 76ers Assistant Coach Sam Cassell. Despite their contributions and the contributions of other talent, like 2004 NBA MVP Kevin Garnett, 2011 rebounding leader Kevin Love, and 3x NBA All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns, the Philadelphia 76ers still hold the advantage in head-to-head matchups with a 33-32 overall record through 65 games.
The T-Wolves and Sixers faced each other on two occasions during the 2022-23 season, splitting the series with one road win each. On March 7, 2023, Embiid and Maxey combined for 66 points against Minnesota, resulting in a 117-94 victory for the 76ers.
The Sixers and Timberwolves matchup twice in the 2023-24 season. Their first matchup of the season was on November 22 in Minnesota resulting in a road loss for the 76ers. The Timberwolves visit the Sixers at home on December 20, with the Sixers hopeful to even the season series. Get your tickets to see these two powerhouses at The Center!
