It’s been hard to watch the Sixers’ games recently. A lot has been done by the club’s management to bring the team to the next level, Doc Rivers was hired to help Joel Embiid get stronger, Ben Simmons was given more freedom on the court, but the latter decided that his career in Pennsylvania should be over and is looking for a new challenge.

Of course, the atmosphere broke down and problems began to emerge. The Philadelphia 76ers went from being one of the leaders in the East to the middle of the pack and after their latest 96-116 loss to the Golden State Warriors, they dropped to eighth place. They have a home game against the Timberwolves, which is crucial in terms of points.
The Minnesota Timberwolves took advantage of their opponents’ problems quite well and moved up from the bottom of the Western Conference to the play-off zone. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a team play this well, although the game is far from optimal.

The Minnesota Timberwolves had won five straight games and were well motivated going into their game with the Charlotte Hornets. Chris Finch’s men lost to their opponent in every aspect, with the Hornets taking four quarters (115-133). Karl-Anthony Towns tried to turn things around, but the Hornets’ attack was unbeatable on the night.
Philadelphia 76ers vs Minnesota Timberwolves Statistics:
- 11.7 and 15.4 – that’s how many losses the teams are making this regular season on average per game.
- The Minnesota Timberwolves are hitting 6.2 blocked shots per game in the current NBA campaign.
- In the last five head-to-head games, there has been one draw in the quarters.
Philadelphia 76ers vs Minnesota Timberwolves Tips:
The Minnesota Timberwolves are surely familiar with their opponent’s problems, so they will try to take advantage of them. On the other hand, Chris Finch’s men have been awful in head-to-head games at the Wells Fargo Centre and that’s worrying.
The Philadelphia 76ers have lost three home games in a row, which is clearly unacceptable for such a club. Joel Embiid and company will try to finally get their act together and stop the fall. In our opinion, Doc Rivers’ boys will win this game.
Our first prediction and bet are the handicap (-2.5) for the Philadelphia 76ers with the odds of 1.72 with the VBet bookmaker.
