The highlight of the quarter was a Steph Curry alley-oop to Dorell Wright with about 3 minutes left in the period. Rookie Ekpe Udoh was struggling with his post-up defense in the first quarter, leading to some easy buckets and a couple of and 1’s for the Sixers. He left the quarter early with three quick fouls, four points, five rebounds, an assist, and a block. The W’s were 0-5 from 3 point range in that quarter.
