The Philadelphia 76ers will be fighting to snap a losing streak on Tuesday when they take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center.

ABOUT THE 76ERS (13-13): Philadelphia has dropped four consecutive games while springing leaks on defense and allowing 114.5 points per game during the stretch. Rookie playmaker Ben Simmons has stood out during the funk with averages of 18.3 points, 10.5 assists and 7.8 rebounds while registering one triple-double and two double-doubles. “He’s been a four-man his whole life, we decided to make him a point guard,” 76ers coach Brett Brown told reporters. “It’s the hardest position to play in the NBA, let alone for a rookie, let alone for somebody that was a college four-man. To his credit, he’s embraced the position.”

 Minnesota has won three of its past four games but needed shooting guard Jimmy Butler to take over in the fourth quarter to score 10 of his 22 points to hold off the lowly Mavericks. “I thought Jimmy closed the game out for us,” Timberwolves backup shooting guard Jamal Crawford told reporters. “It’s such a luxury to have a guy like that that you can put the ball in his hands and he can make the right play. More times than not, it works in our favor.” Crawford scored 16 points in 20 minutes off the bench against Dallas and has yet to reach the 20-point mark this season while averaging 9.4 points.

Oddsmakers opened the Timberwolves as -5½-point favorites versus the 76ers, while the game’s total opened at 215.

The Philadelphia 76ers attempt to end their roughest stretch of the season when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday. Philadelphia is mired in a season-worst four-game skid and hopes to have center Joel Embiid (back) after he missed the past two games.

Embiid was rested for Saturday’s game in Cleveland and was a late scratch against New Orleans on Sunday due to back stiffness. But the news improved Monday as Embiid, who is averaging 27 points and 10.8 rebounds over his last five appearances, was listed as questionable for the matchup versus Minnesota. The Timberwolves posted a 97-92 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday in the opener of a five-game homestand and are a stellar five games above .500 one-third of the way through the season. Star center Karl-Anthony Towns leads the NBA with 21 double-doubles and is averaging 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds per game.

Last time out for Minnesota, they were a 97-92 winner as they battled the Mavericks at home. The Timberwolves failed to cover in the match as a -8-point favorite, while 189 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Philadelphia lost its last outing, a 131-124 result against the Pelicans on December 10. The 76ers earned a push in that game as a +7-point underdog, while the 255 combined points took the game OVER the total.
