Simmons hits back late to help snap 76ers losing streak

Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns were showing why they are two of the NBA's most dynamic young big men.

If the Sixers win the games they are supposed to win and play like they did in Minnesota, good times seem to be ahead for a team that hasn't had many of those over the years. Sixers coach Brett Brown said on Sunday that Covington likely is out.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak for Philly and it was an all-around collective victory on all levels.

The 76ers were 3 of 4 from the field in the overtime session and 11 of 13 from the free-throw line.

Embiid is averaging 23.5 points and 11.1 rebounds per game, but is questionable for tonight's game with back tightness. "This year was treated like a regular game and we got the win".

Jimmy Butler led Minnesota with a season-high 38 points, including a pair of 3s in the final minute of regulation. However, the tired Timberwolves couldn't close out the game. Dallas shot just 41 percent in the second half on Sunday. Andrew Wiggins went 8 of 24 overall and 1 of 7 from beyond the arc.

"Just didn't make the plays we needed to make".

"Jimmy was fantastic tonight", Towns said.

But let's really focus on the Sixers starters, who played very well, although Ben Simmons had a ton of difficulty being about to gain offensive separation against Butler. "I'm going to try to warmup tonight and see how it feels". "It's hard to look in the mirror and say, 'You were the reason for this loss'".

Holmes got the start at power forward as Robert Covington missed his second straight game with a lower-back contusion. Philadelphia survived a season-high 26 turnovers, which led to 31 points for Minnesota, in part by going 27 of 32 at the free-throw line.

Really, there are so many takeaways from this game, but I'll just say that the Sixers had so many opportunities to blow the game and revert back to the Sixers of old where they were unable to close games out in the end.

Despite 26 total turnovers on the game, a season high, the Sixers still emerged victorious against a very game T-Wolves squad, who came into Tuesday night's nationally televised showdown with a 16-11 record. All of his points came late in the fourth quarter and in overtime. Embiid changes the team's spacing but also gives the Sixers an offensive presence in the post. Embiid hit two free throws to tie the score, and Butler's jumper at the buzzer came up short.

The Sixers then scored the first six points of the overtime en route to leading the rest of the way. For him to be a game-time decision against a physical team like Minnesota and play as many minutes as he did, that has to be a great sign long-term.
