Warriors fall to 76ers on anniversary of Wilt's 100-point game

BOX SCORE

Sixers 105, Warriors 83Player of the game: Backup point guard Lou Williams scored 25 points to help get Philly back on track. The Sixers had entered Fridays game losers of six of their past seven games.Were not good enough to turn it on and off, Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. Thats not who we are. We have to be on all the time. We have to be aggressive, play with force -- especially on the road. Key stretch: The Sixers used the first six minutes of the third quarter to gain some separation from the Warriors. After a tightly contested first half one in which Philly led 50-47 at intermission the Sixers began the third quarter on a 13-4 run to open up their biggest lead of the night at 63-51.We battled in the first half, down three at halftime and we were happy with that, Jackson said. I think at the start of the third quarter we didnt come out with force and they took control of the game and thats when they established their rhythm.

Udoh banged up: Warriors power forward Ekpe Udoh appeared to injure his right knee early in the fourth quarter. Udoh collided with a Philadelphias Thaddeus Young while going for a rebound.Udoh limped around the court for a little while before asking to come out of the game. Udoh went to the bench but did not go back to the locker room for treatment.Issues beyond arc: One of the staples for the Warriors this season has been their 3-point shooting. Its been one of the aspects of their game that has been reliable.Up until this road trip, that is.The Warriors shot 4-for-34 (11.7 percent) in their first two games on the trip and it didnt get much better in Game 3 at Philly. The Warriors missed eight of their first nine shots, but they were doing other things, and were down just 50-47 at halftime.For the first half, the Warriors were just 1-for-12 from 3-point range.Said Philadelphia coach Doug Collins: I thought we wore them down. Monta Ellis got off to a great start but as the game went on we kept on doing what we were doing. They made two late 3s, but other than that we defended the three well.Curry sits again: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry didnt play on Friday night because of a strained tendon in his right foot. It was the 11th game this season Curry has missed because of injury, but its more like the 12th.The reason: Curry played just three seconds against the Atlanta Hawks, as Jackson used him as decoy on a play designed for David Lee.

Curry claims he didn't throw mouthguard at ref: 'I've got a pretty good aim'

Curry claims he didn't throw mouthguard at ref: 'I've got a pretty good aim'

Just before the Warriors officially lost the game in Memphis on Saturday night, their superstar point guard lost his cool.

After not getting a foul call with 43 seconds left in the game, Steph Curry chucked his mouthguard in the direction of referee Scott Wall in a fit of rage reminiscent of Game 6 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

Wall immediately ejected Curry, who continued to argue with the officials.

After the game, Curry wanted to make it clear he wasn't trying to his Wall with his mouthguard.

"If I tried to throw it at him and hit him, I've got a pretty good aim," Curry said told reporters after the game. "I've thrown my mouthpiece plenty of times and thrown it on the floor. Probably not the best thing to do, but I've done it. I own up to it.

"If I was trying to throw it at him or hit him, I would have been able to executed that."

Curry explained why he reacted the way he did.

"That last play, I thought I got fouled. My frustration boiled over, did something stupid, deserved to get kicked out and that's what happened. Obviously learn from it and try not to do it again," Curry told reporters.

Now Curry and the Warriors wait to see if the NBA will suspend or fine him. He has an expectation of what the punishment will be.

"Don't think it will be a suspension or anything. My pockets will be a lot lighter," Curry said after the game.
