Five things you need to know about the 76ers today:

1. The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the few teams the Sixers have gotten the best of in the last two seasons. The Sixers have won the last three of four against Minnesota.

2. Joel Embiid and Dario Saric are the NBA's only rookies with multiple double-doubles. Each has two.

3.The 19 points that Jahlil Okafor scored Wednesday against the Washington Wizards were the most he has had in a game since Feb. 28, when he had 26 at Orlando. That was his final game of last season before knee surgery.

4. Sergio Rodriguez had 12 assists Wednesday to tie his NBA best, and they are most by a Sixer since Ish Smith had 16 on Jan. 18 against the New York Knicks. Rodriguez had 12 assists as a Portland Trail Blazer on April 15, 2009.

5. The Sixers are one of eight NBA teams to hit 10 or more three-pointers in six games this season. They joined the club by making 10 of 28 on Wednesday.
