Curry scores 28, car­ries War­riors to 120-117 win over 76ers


PCurry took over for the War­riors in the fourth.

“He’s the sec­ond-best point guard ever. Ar­gue that,” Igu­oudala said.

War­riors: Big man Kevon Looney sat out be­cause of right pelvic sore­ness. Al­fonzo McKin­nie left the game with a left hip con­tu­sion. ... Kerr en­joyed Golden State’s only visit of the sea­son to Philly. He apol­o­gized be­fore he met the me­dia for wip­ing his mouth af­ter the fi­nal bite of a cheeses­teak.

76ers: Played short­handed against the War­riors: big men Boban Mar­janovic (right knee sprain) and Amir John­son (up­per-back tight­ness) also sat out with in­juries. Jonah Bolden started for Em­biid, and the backup was Justin Pat­ton, who hasn’t played this sea­son.

Franklin the mas­cot wore a Harper No. 3 Phillies jer­sey. Harper gave Sim­mons a shoutout in his press con­fer­ence in Florida.

“It’s amaz­ing for Philly to have a guy like that com­ing here. We wel­come him,” Sim­mons said.

Zhaire Smith, a 2018 first-round pick ac­quired from Phoenix on draft night, made his re­turn to bas­ket­ball this week in the G League. He suf­fered a bro­ken left foot, and he had a se­vere re­ac­tion to food al­ler­gies that dropped his weight to 164 pounds. Smith is up 206 pounds and will fin­ish the Blue Coats sea­son be­fore it’s de­cided if he’ll play this sea­son for the Six­ers.

It was the 57th an­niver­sary of Wilt Cham­ber­lain’s 100-point game for the Phil­a­del­phia War­riors. Cham­ber­lain shot 36 of 63 from the floor and an un-Wilt like 28 of 32 from the free-throw line to hit 100 in Phil­a­del­phia’s 169147 win over the Knicks.

The War­riors play Tues­day at Bos­ton.

Six­ers host Or­lando on Tues­day.
