“The Streak” came to a halt on Monday night against Golden State and the “Splash Brothers”, and Brett Brown suffered his first loss as an NBA head coach. More importantly, the Sixers fell to 3-1 on the season after the 110-90 beating that the Warriors handed them at the Wells Fargo Center.
As advertised, Golden State was extremely efficient from three-point land. However, it was not the Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson show. Newly acquired Andre Iguodala was 7-for-11 from deep, and racked up 32 points. Thompson was also 4-for-8 on the three-ball, and Curry managed a triple-double with 18 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds to go along with 5 steals.
After being named Eastern Conference Player of the Month, Michael Carter-Williams struggled for Philadelphia, going just 4-for-17 from the field and committing 6 turnovers. The rookie was bound to have at least one off-game after his scorching hot start for the Sixers.
Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes struggled against the Dubs, but Evan Turner managed to connect on his final seven shot attempts after missing his first five. Turner finished with 18 points and 7 rebounds.
If there was a bright spot late in the game for Brett Brown’s squad, it was the play of Hollis Thompson. Thompson netted seven points and hauled in four boards in seventeen minutes of action.
