Spencer Hawes had 20 points and six rebounds for the Sixers, who led 39-20 after a tremendous first quarter and still held a 13-point advantage at halftime. But they turned the ball over 26 times and shot 14 free throws to Minnesota's 29.
Hummel scored all 10 of his points in the fourth, including a 3-pointer that started the deciding 13-3 run.
