How Warriors secured win over Sixers despite poor start

Share

On Saturday night in Philly, the 76ers had the Golden State Warriors dead to rights as they had as much as a 24-point lead and a 72-54 halftime lead, after allowing the most points allowed by the franchise since 1992 with 47 points given up in one quarter. The last time the Warriors outscored an opponent by 32 in a single quarter was December 15, 1972 at the Buffalo Braves (42-10 in the third).

The Warriors' effort helped even more.

Philadelphia kept the momentum going in the second quarter, holding off a couple of small Warriors run to maintain a commanding lead.

The Warriors come in with an 11-4 record and 7-8 ATS after a 92-88 loss at the Celtics.

Joel Embiid had the game of his life in the victory over LA with 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocked shots and seven assists. They secured a 124-116 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday after putting together a historically great third-quarter effort to offset a horrifically very bad first-quarter embarrassment. Ben Simmons contributed 18 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds and five steals.

Draymond Green picked up an early first quarter technical. The off and on type play is why the Nets are worth a shot with the points here.

Australian rookie Simmons had a double-double with 23 points and 12 assists for the 76ers, who led by 19 points at quarter time and 74-52 at the half.

Can the Warriors cut down on the fouls?

Golden State outscored Philadelphia 47-15 in the third and they wouldn't look back in the fourth, closing it out with a 124-116 win.
