Sixers put on a show early, but Warriors storm back to win
The Philadelphia 76ers got off to a brilliant start against the visiting Golden State Warriors, leading 74-52 after the first half.

Thanks to a record-setting third quarter, however, the Warriors came storming back for a 124-116 victory. Steph Curry led the way for the Warriors with 35 points, five rebounds, and five assists.
