Minnesota Timberwolves 33, Philadelphia 76ers 23 (End Q1)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Strong quarter overall for the Timberwolves, who surived early barrage of threes from the 76ers (that eventually subsided) and they lead 33-23 after one quarter. Ant with 11, Towns with 9. – 8:06 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Harrell checks in for Embiid late in the first. For at least a spurt, we’re going to see the Reed-Harrell pairing Doc has talked about the past couple days. He said he likes Harrell’s ability to dribble handoff on that delay action. – 8:03 PM

76ers fans giving some mild boos to the guy who didn’t make a shot during the timeout shooting contest. – 8:00 PM

that’s beautiful basketball, folks!

Minnesota Timberwolves PR @Twolves_PR
With his first steal of the night at the 6:20 mark of the first quarter, @Karl-Anthony Towns reached 400 career steals, becoming the 8th player in @Minnesota Timberwolves history to eclipse 400 career steals. – 7:57 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
It’s tough to criticize lineups at this point. When you remove Harden, Maxey and Tobias, you’re not left with very many players with the skill of dribbling. With the acknowledgment that weird lineups are inevitable, Melton, House, Thybulle, Reed and Embiid is definitely a lineup. – 7:57 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
PJ Tucker was getting into it with a few players on the Timberwolves. It looks like he’s really setting a tone out there and he’s been terrific against Karl Towns defensively. #Sixers7:55 PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Gobert picks up his second at the 5:27 mark, and Kyle Anderson is coming in. – 7:52 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sam Cassell, who is always in Maxey’s and Harden’s ears, is having an animated convo (not angry, just enthusiastic) with Melton at the end of that timeout. – 7:50 PM
Philadelphia 76ers @sixers
here to report that @Joel Embiid‘s new in-arena song is Rich Flex.

Ant goes toe to toe with Embiid on both ends of the floor, comes away with a forced turnover and a three-point play opportunity. – 7:48 PM

D’Angelo Russell had one of his best games of the season last year in helping the Wolves win in OT. He has their first five points. – 7:43 PM

Some thoughts on Tyrese Maxey’s absence, a brutal circumstance for both the young guard and his team:

Big bummer for Tyrese Maxey, whose foot injury knocks him out of the lineup at a time the Sixers need all the firepower they can get. With Harden expected back early December, the Sixers now have to navigate roughly 8 games without both starting guards: phillyvoice.com/sixers-injury-…4:44 PM
Jeff Stotts @InStreetClothes
Re: Tyrese Maxey: It’s hard to evaluate his injury without knowing the exact bone involved. The fact that surgery is not being considering suggests the fracture is non-displaced. Will be interesting to see if more info trickles out. – 4:35 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
#Sixers PG Tyrese Maxey suffered a small fracture in his left foot in Friday’s win over Milwaukee. – 4:28 PM
Austin Krell @NBAKrell
When all is said and done, the Sixers will likely head into the week before Christmas with their opening night starters of James Harden, Tyrese Maxey, PJ Tucker, Tobias Harris, and Joel Embiid having logged just 114 minutes together all season. – 4:24 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers went 4-2 in two weeks without James Harden (one loss was also without Joel Embiid).
Harden sounded optimistic he could return in a couple weeks but that timeline is still unknown.
Crucial stretch for Sixers until then to hang on without their starting backcourt. – 4:22 PM
Justin Grasso @JGrasso_
Tyrese Maxey suffered a small fracture in his left foot, per #Sixers official. Maxey will be reevaluated in approximately two weeks. – 4:17 PM

Watched the 4th quarter last night of Milwaukee v. Philadelphia – Joel Embiid was as dominant in the final 5 minutes v. the Bucks as he was against the Jazz. On a different level. – 2:38 PM

There are a lot of things Montrezl Harrell might have been doing last night, but making sure arena staff got home in a timely manner was not one of them. – 1:50 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
As we wait for the results of his MRI, Tyrese Maxey is out for tonight’s game against Minnesota with left foot pain. No surprise there.
Furkan Korkmaz (knee) is still out, while Tobias Harris (hip) is listed as questionable. – 1:43 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Injury report for tonight’s game was just posted.

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
#Sixers guard Tyrese Maxey (left foot pain) will miss tonight’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Tobias Harris (left hip soreness) is listed as questionable. However, he’s not expected to play unless things improve. So that’s something to pay attention to. – 1:39 PM

The 76ers did not appreciate Giannis shooting free throws after the Bucks lost in Philly last night. Sam Mitchell didn’t like it either
