Ben Simmons posts triple-double as 76ers past Timberwolves

They played with more energy. They really took it to us.”Embiid provided the biggest roar when his acrobatic, breakaway dunk made it 79-56 with 6:39 left. After Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau called a timeout, Embiid egged on the crowd by raising his arms and screaming.Coach Brett Brown was forced to reinsert Simmons and Embiid with 2:39 left after the Wolves’ reserves cut a 29-point deficit to 111-101.Thibodeau had the Wolves foul Simmons, a poor free-throw shooter, twice intentionally. But Simmons went 3 of 4 from the line and Minnesota got no closer than nine points.“The starters were pretty flat, so that group gave us good energy,” Thibodeau said. “I thought Aaron (Brooks’) ball pressure really got us going. That brought energy to the group. And then I thought Tyus (Jones) and Aaron together were good. And Gorgui (Deng) and Cole (Aldrich) played with a physicality.”The matchup of Embiid vs. Towns fizzled with Towns struggling and getting into foul trouble. Minnesota, which entered in seventh place in the Western Conference, shot 38 percent from the field.“It’s not a one-on-one battle because every time we play I guard him the whole game and he doesn’t,” Embiid said. “I want to show that I’m the best big man in the league, but he’s really good at what he does. . I thought tonight I did a pretty good job on him.”TIP-INSTimberwolves: Towns has an NBA-high 61 double-doubles. … Minnesota fell to 6-6 since Jimmy Butler’s knee injury. … The Wolves are 12-17 against the Eastern Conference and 30-15 against the West. … G Derrick Rose (right ankle) missed a second straight game.76ers: Simmons has the most triple-doubles for the franchise since Wilt Chamberlain had 31 in the 1967-68 season. … The Sixers moved alone into fourth place in the East, one game behind third-place Cleveland.FULTZ’S CALLBrown said Sixers rookie Markelle Fultz will return this season only if he declares himself ready after struggling to regain his shooting stroke following a shoulder issue.SIMMONS STATEMENT Hard to argue.Simmons had 15 points, 12 rebounds and 13 assists, Joel Embiid dazzled while getting the better of Karl-Anthony Towns, and the Philadelphia 76ers inched closer to their first playoff berth in six years with a 120-108 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSimmons had his triple-double by late in the third quarter.

PUP Says Ellen Is Shunning Boakai

first_imgPUP national chairman Isobe Gborkorkollie – Advertisement – The People’s Unification Party (PUP), the brain-child of Unity Party vice standard bearer Emmanuel Nuquay, has denied that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf supports Vice President Boakai’s bid for the presidency. At the recent launch of the Movement to Support Boakai and Nuquay (Mosbon), PUP national chairman Isobe Gborkorkollie said partisans have printed 100,000 T-shirts in support of the VP’s bid to replace President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf who, although the Vice President has served well for the last 12 years, and was therefore expected to overwhelmingly support his presidential bid, is, on the contrary, not supporting him.People’s Unification Party, the brainchild of UP vice standard bearer, Speaker J. Emmanuel Nuquay (right), believes that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (left) has abandoned the ruling party’s cause.Though Gborkorkollie said there are glaring neglects by the president, the Boakai and Nuquay team is, however, not crying for the President’s support, because they have received all the support they needed from the Liberian people. “Liberians everywhere have given Boakai the kind of support he needs, endorsed him from every county, and over 100 plus lawmakers are clear proof that the VP is the ideal choice for the people,” Gborkorkollie said. The PUP stalwart added that electing V.P. Boakai as President will bring the needed change Liberians desire for the country. “The right person to supervise this change is Boakai, and this is not a change from government to government. This is not all bout the UP, but the Liberian people who see him as the ideal leader for change. The support for the VP is not a UP support, but from people across the country,” Gborkorkollie said.K. Ishmael V. Conneh, a Mosbon executive, said they printed 100,000 T-shirts to boost the campaign through voters’ commitment to support the party no matter the situation.“They are joining the campaign by creating awareness about the VP’s presidential bid, and they are printing T-shirts. And seeing voters break away from their long held tradition of waiting for political leaders to give them t-shirts, is a happy day for all of us,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
