Howard Smith-USA Today Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers are now on a two-game losing streak after Tuesday's 105-88 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. When is their next game?

The Philadelphia 76ers dropped their second game in a row on Tuesday as they lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves, 105-88. The loss dropped the Sixers to 10-8 on the season and 6-5 in games played at home.

The Sixers defense allowed reserve guard Alexey Shved to lead the Wolves in scoring with 17 points and four assists. Starting forward Josh Howard scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to help the Wolves earn a seven rebound advantage in the game over the Sixers.

For the Sixers, four players scored in double figures, led by forward Evan Turner with 19 points. Unfortunately, Turner also led the Sixers with three turnovers. Guard Jason Richardson added 14 points and guard Jrue Holiday and forward Thaddeus Young both added 13 points each.

The Sixers were held to just 42.2 percent shooting from the field, mostly weighed down by going 5-for-20 from three point range the entire night. The Sixers next play the front end of a home-and-home with the Boston Celtics at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia with tip off scheduled for 7 p.m. ET with a national broadcast on ESPN.
