PHILADELPHIA – Forget tanking. Rookie Michael Carter-Williams and the Philadelphia 76ers can’t lose.

Pegged before the season to be one of the league’s worst teams, the Sixers continued their stunning start, beating the Chicago Bulls 107-104 on Saturday behind 26 points and 10 assists from Carter-Williams.

Evan Turner had 20 points and Spencer Hawes — a former Washington Huskies and Seattle Prep player — added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the supposedly rebuilding Sixers (3-0).

Carlos Boozer led the Bulls (1-2) with 22 points and 10 rebounds .

Still dealing with neck soreness, Derrick Rose finished with 13 points and six assists for Chicago, shooting 4 for 14 from the field and committing eight turnovers.

“I would blame tonight on me,” point guard Rose said.


• Ex-Washington State standout Klay Thompson scored 27 points to lead the host Golden State Warriors past Sacramento 98-87.

• Portland won its 13th straight home opener, beating San Antonio 115-105 as Damian Lillard scored 25 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 24.

• Minnesota Timberwolves center Ronny Turiaf, a former Gonzaga player, is out indefinitely with a fractured right elbow.

Turiaf was injured Friday night in Minnesota’s 100-81 victory over Oklahoma City when he took a spill after getting tangled with ex-Sonic Nick Collison.
