Iguodala and Warriors send Sixers to first lossPosted by Inside Hoops
The Philadelphia 76ers are off to a great start. Even with their first loss of the season, basketball has been fun in Philly so far this season. Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer:
The 76ers team that people expected to see this season finally surfaced Monday night.
The Sixers struggled from the field and were flat-out overmatched against the Golden State Warriors, who cruised to a 110-90 victory in front of 11,089 at the Wells Fargo Center.
But perhaps the biggest blow for the Sixers (3-1) was the inability to stop Andre Iguodala.
The former Sixer made a career-high seven three-pointers on 11 attempts en route to 32 points. Twenty-seven of his points came before intermission. The 6-foot-6 swingman, who played only 20 seconds of the fourth quarter, also finished with three assists, three rebounds, three steals, and a blocked shot.
Iguodala had scored just 26 points altogether, with three three-pointers, in the Warriors’ first three games.
