Golden State Warriors, Steph Curry erase 22-point deficit in 10 minutes, top Sixers

The Sixers were shooting over 60 percent from the floor at halftime, but finished shooting 49 percent.

"First half they bullied us". The Warriors improved to 12-4 with the win while the Sixers fell to 8-7. Philadelphia's starting five played 33+ minutes each and didn't get much time to rest with a depleted bench that is now without Justin Anderson. In the 76ers' two games since that loss to Golden State, Embiid has totaled 78 points, 31 rebounds, nine assists and eight blocks. Philadelphia would take a 74-52 advantage to the half. J.J. Redick and Robert Covington each had 20.

However Steve Kerr's men came roaring back after half-time, and with Curry and Kevin Durant to the fore, put up their own 47-point quarter in the 3rd. They shot 73.1 percent from the floor and 66.7 percent from beyond the arc. The good news: No team is as stingy defensively as Boston, which has held opponents under 100 points in 12 of its past 14 games.

Budding superstar Joel Embiid has largely drawn most of the headlines regarding the Sixers. It may seem as though Simmons could do the same for the next generation of point guards. In the first half, Ben shot 8-for-9 from the floor.

However, a third-quarter collapse by the Sixers cost them the lead, and ultimately, the game.

James Harden led the Houston scoring with 29 points while 4 other Rockets players made double figures. Two of his points came on a fast break jam courtesy of Dario. Klay Thompson had 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Philadelphia outscored the Warriors 38-24 in the paint.

"The second half, at the beginning of the 3rd quarter we got some stops and that allowed our offense to take over".

Draymond Green picked up an early first quarter technical. "That's going to mean well for the Sixers down the line". Not sure how the Nets keep up with the horses on Golden State. Steph Curry netted 20 points in the quarter.
