Sixers vs. Timberwolves: Game Recap

Sixers vs. Timberwolves: Game Recap

Jimmy Butler beats his old team by 42 There was no third quarter blown lead. There was no letdown. There was no great battle between Jimmy Butler and the team that traded him, because there was barely a game on Tuesday night. The Sixers pulled away from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the second quarter and ended the night with the 149-107 victory. A lot of the talk before the game centered on Dario Saric and Robert Covington returning to Philadelphia, but Covington missed his seventh consecutive game with an ankle injury, and Saric scored a quiet 11 points for Minnesota. For Philly, the big...

Sixers vs. Timberwolves Game Preview: Return of the Homie

The Philadelphia 76ers take on the Minnesota Timberwolves this evening in a game that feels like its about more than just wins or losses. That’s because for the first time since trading for Jimmy Butler, the Sixers will play against Dario Saric (unfortunately, Robert Covington will not be playing in the game as he’s been sidelined with an ankle injury since January 2nd). The Timberwolves, fresh off of a win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday, come into town looking to improve upon their 21-22 record, which would have them on the outside looking in if the playoffs started today....

Looking at the trade and buyout market for the Sixers

Looking at the trade and buyout market for the Sixers

It’s no secret the Sixers need more playable bench pieces, so who could they acquire? If the Sixers plan on making any noise come playoff time, they're going to need to make some significant changes. While some still look at the challenges in transitioning into a “Big Three,” the biggest question mark is still the bench production. By trading Robert Covington and Dario Saric, the team knew they were sacrificing depth for star power, but that doesn’t mean they have to sit tight now while the bench flounders. The trade has helped out in terms of production from the starting unit, but...

Which Wolves players stand to benefit most under Ryan Saunders?

Welcome to the Friday edition of The Cooler, where it's always a good idea to get a running start when jumping to conclusions. Let's get to it: *Ryan Saunders has been a head coach in the NBA for 48 minutes of game time, and in that 119-117 Wolves victory he was without two important players — Robert Covington and Derrick Rose — while a third, Karl-Anthony Towns, battled foul trouble all game. So that game isn't going to provide us a ton of clues as to what the Wolves' rotations will look like when fully healthy. But we can add up some context clues so far to make some educated-guess...
