Warriors Vs. 76ers Final Score: Early Lead Disappears As Warriors Fall At Home, 107-79

The Golden State Warriors were coming off a strong win over the New York Knicks as they hosted the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday in Oakland. Despite strong contributions from Stephen Curry and David Lee, the Warriors came up far short in a losing effort that dropped them to 2-2 on the season. All four games so far have been played at home. The 76ers also hold a 2-2 record, although all of their games to date have been played on the road.

The Warriors managed to pick up a 25-19 lead at the end of the first quarter, looking like it might be easy sailing from there although they were playing without one of their star players, Monta Ellis, who was away due to family issues. Sadly, they were brought down to earth in short order as the 76ers outscored them 31-17 in the second quarter. It was 50-37 at halftime and the Philadelphia squad never looked back.

The 76ers were buoyed by point guard Louis Williams, who racked up 23 points and led all scorers. Also turning in a strong game for Philadelphia was center Spencer Hawes, who recorded a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Curry led Warriors scoring with 21 points, adding four rebounds and four assists. The only other Golden State player to score double-digits was David Lee, who put together 19 points and eight rebounds.
