NBA Preview: Philadelphia Sixers (42-22) at Minnesota Timberwolves (34-32)

When the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday in Minneapolis, they will be aiming to finish a five-game road trip with a record of 4-1.

On Monday, the Sixers defeated the host Indiana Pacers 147-143 to win for the third time in four games. This victory came just two days after the Sixers defeated the Milwaukee Bucks by an impressive score of 133-130 to end their 16-game winning streak.

Against Indiana, James Harden added 14 points, 20 assists, and nine rebounds, while Joel Embiid scored 42 points. Harden became the first Sixer player in the franchise’s history to record two games with at least 20 assists.

A franchise record for the most free throws made in a game without a miss was set by Embiid, who shot 19-for-19 from the line.

Jalen McDaniels scored 20 points in his first start for the Sixers, who were without P.J. Tucker and Tobias Harris. Tyrese Maxey scored 24 points.

Both Tucker and Harris sustained injuries in Milwaukee, but they are anticipated to be available for the Timberwolves game.

McDaniels insists that he will be prepared for any role.

When the Timberwolves take on the Sixers, they will be aiming for their fourth consecutive victory.

Minnesota had impressive road victories over the Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Clippers, and Los Angeles Lakers. On Saturday, the Timberwolves prevailed 138-134 over the Kings.

Anthony Edwards drove the way with 27 places and eight helps and Mike Conley added 24 focuses. Rudy Gobert had 13 points and 14 rebounds, Jaden McDaniels had 19 points, Kyle Anderson had 18 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds, and Jaden McDaniels had 19 points.

In the balanced effort, Nickeil Alexander-Walker (16 points) and Naz Reid (10 points) also scored in double figures.

Edwards scored two crucial baskets in the closing minutes to secure the victory over Sacramento.

Over the last three games, the inconsistent Timberwolves appear to have slowed down. Keep in mind that they are winning despite not having their star player, Karl-Anthony Towns, who is still out with a calf injury.
