PHILADELPHIA -- Shooting guard Andre Iguodala scored 32 points against his former team Monday night, and point guard Stephen Curry had a triple-double as the Golden State Warriors rolled to a 110-90 victory over the previously unbeaten PHILADELPHIA 76ers.
Iguodala, who scored a total of 26 points in the Warriors' first three games, notched 27 in the first half alone. He shot 11-for-18 from the field and made a career-high seven 3-pointers in 11 attempts. The 32 points were two shy of his career high.
The 29-year-old veteran shot 6-for-9 from 3-point range in the first half. Like Thompson, he scored five points in an 18-0 first-quarter flurry, when the Warriors surged into a 28-12 lead. Golden State was never threatened thereafter, building advantages of 66-42 at halftime and 97-58 with 2:47 left in the third quarter.
NOTES: The 76ers shot 35.2 percent from the floor. The Warriors made 44.6 percent of their shots. ... Carter-Williams became the first recipient of the Player of the Week at the start of a career since Orlando Magic C Shaquille O'Neal in 1992-93. Carter-Williams alternately said he was proud, happy and thankful about the honor before adding something he has said repeatedly: "My focus is on the next game, with my teammates. ... It's a great achievement, but it's not all my focus." .... PHILADELPHIA coach Brett Brown praised his point guard for being so grounded and said achievements tend to be "grossly exaggerated at this very early stage." At the same time Brown said, "There's no denying he's a talent, and I'm glad he's mine." ... Warriors F Harrison Barnes did not play because of an inflamed toe on his left foot.
