The Sixers' four-game win streak came to an end with Monday night's 126-95 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Wells Fargo Center (see game recap). Here's a closer look at some numbers from the game:

• Kevin Love tied a season-low with seven rebounds in the Timberwolves’ victory. Then again, he didn’t play in the fourth quarter because of the lopsided score.

• Love led all scorers with 26 points on 7 for 12 shooting even though he failed to get a double-double for just the fourth time in 33 games this season.

• The Sixers allowed 16 three-pointers to the Timberwolves, giving them eight games in which they allowed at least 15 in a game. In doing so, the Sixers added to their NBA record. The previous record was five, which the Sixers broke last month.

• Thad Young scored 20 points for the 12th time this season. He scored 20-plus in just 12 games all of last season. In his last eight games, Young is averaging 25.6 points while shooting 55.9 percent from the field.

• The Sixers committed just 13.5 turnovers per game during their four-game winning streak. They gave it away 23 times in Monday night’s loss. The Sixers have committed 20-plus turnovers nine times this year after doing it just five times last year. The Sixers are also second in the league in turnovers this season after committing the second-fewest last year.

• The Sixers got nine steals in Monday’s loss, snapping a streak of five games in which they had at least 10 steals.
