Warriors beat 76ers in battle of Curry brothers

Seth Curry scored a team-high 24 points to nearly offset brother Stephen’s game-high 25, but the Golden State Warriors used greater depth to outlast the road-weary Philadelphia 76ers 116-96 for a fifth straight win on Wednesday in San Francisco.

Andrew Wiggins (19 points), Jordan Poole (17), Juan Toscano-Anderson (13), Otto Porter Jr. (12) and Draymond Green (10) also scored in double figures for the Warriors, who rallied from 19 down to record their ninth home win in a row.

All nine of the victories in the home streak have been by 12 or more points.

Tyrese Maxey (19) and Danny Green (10) were the only other 76ers to reach double figures on the final night of a long road trip without star big man Joel Embiid (health and safety protocols).

Philadelphia has lost seven of nine.

Playing the finale of what ended up as a 2-4 trip, the 76ers burst out of the gate to lead 27-13 after Danny Green’s second 3-pointer of the game.

A short jumper by Maxey gave the visitors a 55-36 lead with 4:03 remaining in the half before Golden State used a 30-8 flurry bridging the second and third periods to go up 66-63. Stephen Curry had eight points over the 7:18 stretch.

Despite also playing without Tobias Harris (hip), the 76ers pulled even at 88-all in the second minute of the fourth period before Toscano-Anderson had a three-point play, Porter sank a 3-pointer and Toscano-Anderson dunked in an 8-0 burst that gave Golden State the lead for good.

The Warriors, who hadn’t played since Sunday, finished the game on a 28-8 run.

Stephen Curry finished 9-for-16, including 6-for-11 on 3-point attempts, to win the head-to-head from brother Seth, who went 8-for-16 overall and 0-for-5 from beyond the arc. Seth made it close in the scoring column with an 8-for-8 night at the free throw line, while Stephen had a 10-0 advantage in assists.

All of Porter’s points came on four 3-pointers for the Warriors, who shot 15-for-38 (39.5 percent) from long distance. The 76ers were just 8-for-28 (28.6 percent) on 3-point tries.

Draymond Green complemented his 10 points with seven assists and a team-nine rebounds.

The 76ers’ Andre Drummond was the game’s leading rebounder with 12.
