MINNEAPOLIS -- Mo Williams had 19 points, seven assists and six rebounds, and Zach LaVine scored 15 points for the Minnesota Timberwolves in a 116-110 preseason victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night.
First overall pick Andrew Wiggins, who came to Minnesota in the Kevin Love trade, scored 11 points in his home debut. Anthony Bennett had 13 points and eight rebounds.
Henry Sims had 17 points and six rebounds, but Philadelphia turned the ball over 23 times in the defeat. The 76ers held Nerlens Noel out because of a right thigh injury.
