The good thing for the 76ers is they don’t have to face Steph Curry again this season.
The Golden State Warriors star finished with a game-high 49 points to defeat the Sixers, 107-96, Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
Here’s a look at the best and worst awards from the game:
Steph Curry gets this. Twenty of his points came in the fourth quarter on 5-for-6 shooting, including five threes. This marked his 11th consecutive game with at least 30 points. He shot 14-for-28, hitting 10 of 17 three-pointers.
Shake Milton gets this. The Sixers sixth man missed 6 of his 7 shots en route to scoring five points. He also had as many turnovers (three) as assists (three) while being a minus-15 in 19 minutes, 52 seconds.
Best defensive performance
This goes to Draymond Green after a lot of thought. The Warriors power forward did a solid job of being an additional defender on Joel Embiid. He also had two steals.
This goes to Curry’s three-point shooting. His 10-for-17 was good for a 58.8% success rate.
This goes to Seth Curry’s second half. The Sixers guard and younger brother of Steph Curry was held scoreless and missed all five of his shots after intermission. He had scored 15 points on 6-for-10 shooting in the first half.
Worst of the worst
As much as the focus was on Steph Curry’s 49 points, the Sixers didn’t help themselves with their poor shooting. They made just 39.3% of their shots.
