Sixers Guard Michael Carter-Williams Big Rookie of Year Favorite, But MVP Race Much Closer

With the New Year upon us, Bovada has released updated NBA Rookie of the Year and MVP odds, and Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams, the No. 11 overall pick out of Syracuse, is the 5-4 favorite to be the league’s top rookie.

76ers open to trading many players

The Philadelphia 76ers front office is in full tank mode. The product on the floor? Not so much. Yes, the team has a 12-22 record, but many of those losses have come without start rookie Michael Carter-Williams on the floor. With MCW, Philadelphia has looked like a different team – a formidable team. But that may be changing in the relatively near future as Alex Kennedy reports...

Turiaf returns to Timberwolves

After missing 31 games, Ronny Turiaf is back in the Timberwolves' rotation.

76ers Get Blown Out Back-to-Back Nights

After going 4-1 on their West Coast trip last week, the Philadelphia 76ers have dropped their last two games since returning.

Wolves get back to .500 with 126-95 victory over Philadelphia

Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman spoke before Monday’s 126-95 victory at Philadelphia about “turning the page” on Saturday’s bitter home loss to Oklahoma City. Does a rout of a team that just had won the final four games of a challenging West Coast road trip and a final score that tied the second- largest road victory in franchise history qualify? “I think so,” Wolves...

Wolves have struggled at end of close games

MINNEAPOLIS -- For those with a vested interest, it takes a strong stomach to relive the close defeats that have helped shape the Timberwolves' season to date. Just last week, the fan base and the team's collective gut were wrenched a little tighter, thanks in part to a no-call that should've sent Kevin Love to the free-throw line against Dallas and a failed trip on a...

Wolves can't hide frustration after bitter loss to Phoenix

MINNEAPOLIS -- Hands placed on heads, jerseys pulled over faces, eyes either wide in disbelief or narrowed in discontent. Time, and patience, growing short for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Early in the year came optimism. Then a taxing schedule, injuries and early season lessons to be learned served as justification for a record that's hovered near .500 for most of the season...
