Warriors v. 76ers, NBA Score Update: Warriors Struggle in Second Quarter, Sixers Lead 64-56 at Halftime

The Philadelphia 76ers dominated the second quarter of play, extending their lead to 18 at one point, eventually taking a 64-56 lead into the locker room at halftime. The second quarter began about as bad as it possibly could with the Sixers Lou Williams stealing the inbound pass to start the period for an easy bucket. And it didn’t get much better from there.

Head Coach Keith Smart was trying any lineup he could to get a spark going for the W’s, who at one point had Acie Law, Al Thornton, Vlad Radmanovic, Lou Amundson and Reggie WIlliams on the court, but nothing was really going the Warriors way. Golden State had 12 first half turnovers leading to 19 Philadelphia points, as well as going 1-7 from downtown. Stephen Curry leads the Warriors with 10 points, five assists, and two blocks, Monta Ellis had six points and four turnovers, Louis Amundson added eight from off the bench, and David Lee and Dorell Wright both had six points.

The 76ers were doing what the Warriors love to do, running the floor and getting buckets in transition, while getting in the paint and scoring with ease. Their point guards were lighting up Golden State in the first half as Jru Holiday had 13 points, four assists, and three steals, while Lou Williams had 17 points and two assists in only 14 minutes on the floor. Andre Iguodala added four points and seven boards, while Elton Brand had eight points.

Once again the Warriors are going to have to fight their way back into the game, and are going to need a great third quarter to do so.
