The Sixers and Warriors have met once this season, on Dec. 28 in Oakland. Golden State came away with a 96-89 victory. David Lee led the way for the Warriors with 25 points and 12 rebounds.
Jrue Holiday had a team-high 21 points and a game-high 10 assists. The Sixers had a poor shooting night as they went 5-of-20 (25 percent) from three and 14-of-23 (60.9 percent) from the free throw line.
The Sixers have lost a season-high seven straight games, including a 93-82 loss to the Bulls on Thursday. The Sixers failed to contain Joakim Noah, who went off for 23 points, 21 boards and 11 blocks. Despite being down as much as 16 pionts in the third quarter, the Sixers made it a game by only trailing by four with a little over seven minutes remaining. The Bulls put the game away on an 8-0 run. Both teams struggled offensively, as each club shot below 39 percent. Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with 22 points, while Spencer Hawes added 20 points and grabbed a career-best 15 rebounds.
The Warriors will try to end their road trip on a positive not after falling to the Celtics 94-86 on Friday night. After dropping 54 points on the Knicks, Stephen Curry was held to 6-of-22 shooting to finish with 25 points.
No one in particular is playing exceptionally well for the 76ers, except for Jrue Holiday, who has scored at least 20 points in three of the past four games. Holiday has scored over 20 points 22 times this season, after only doing it 10 times last season.
David Lee returned from a one-game suspension on Friday to notch his NBA-best 38th double-double this season with 10 points and 19 rebounds.
Nick Young has struggled as of late for the 76ers. In his past three games, he has combined for eight points on 2-of-16 shooting and 1-of-6 from three-point range. In six of the past nine games, Young has scored less than 10 points.
Curry shot only 27.3 percent from the floor in the Warriors' loss to the Celtics on Friday.
