Coming off of a disappointing 107-103 loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday the Golden State Warriors are looking to rebound in the city of brotherly love as they take on the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center.
Today’s matchup marks the fifth game of seven on the Warriors road trip, who are 1-3 thus far. They head to Philly to face a 76er team that started the season 3-13, but have come storming back to now hold the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference. They have won five of their last six games and 13 of their last 18, and have a 20-10 record on their home floor. The last time the Warriors faced the Sixers was December 27th with the W’s getting the win 110-95 at home in Oakland.
Monta Ellis and David Lee, who combined for 67 points against Boston on Friday, are going to have to keep it going against the Sixers as Andre Iguodala has had two triple-doubles over the last six games, as well as their scoring leader Elton Brand who managed to drop 21 points against Minnesota in their last game despite a dislocated finger.
After the Boston game David Lee had this to say about the rest of the Warriors season:
No moral victories, we’re upset we lost," But if we play this way all the time we’re going to win a lot of the games we have left. We just talked about continuing to plug away."
The plugging away continues today Mr. Lee. Tipoff is at 3:00 PT and can be seen on CSN Bay Area and heard on KNBR 1050.
