Sixers nab first win of season


MINNEAPOLIS: The Philadelphia 76ers avoided matching an ignominious NBA record on Wednesday, beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 85-77 for their first win of the season after a 0-17 start. With the long-awaited victory, the Sixers avoided equaling the worst start to a season in league history, the 0-18 season-opening run of the 2009-10 Nets. Point guard Michael Carter-Williams, last season’s rookie of the year led Philadelphia with 20 points, nine assists and nine rebounds.
