Recap


76ERS 105, WARRIORS 83: Lou Williams came off the bench to score 15 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter as host Philadelphia pulled away to end a four-game home losing streak.

On a night when the 76ers celebrated the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain's historic 100-point game (when Philadelphia owned the Warriors nickname), Philadelphia reached the century mark for the first time in 20 games.

Reserve Thaddeus Young added 16 points and Elton Brand had 14 points and 14 rebounds as the Sixers put six players in double figures in beating Golden State for the fifth time in six meetings.

David Lee had 24 points and 15 boards and Monta Ellis added 20 points for the Warriors, who failed to score 90 points for the third consecutive game. Lee was a perfect 8 for 8 at the foul line, but his teammates didn't get there nearly as often as Golden State hit 12 of 14 free throws.

Leading by three points at halftime, Philadelphia used a 9-0 run to built a 12-point third-quarter advantage en route to taking a 75-65 edge into the final 12 minutes.

Williams scored eight points, including a 3-pointer that capped a 17-6 spurt that gave the 76ers a 92-71 cushion with just under six minutes remaining.

Andre Iguodala added 12 points and 11 rebounds for Philadelphia, which outrebounded Golden State 51-39.

Playing the fourth game of a six-game road trip, Golden State got off to a decent start and trailed 25-23 after one behind 12 points from Ellis.

The Warriors managed to stay within striking distance at the half, lagging behind 50-47 despite connecting on 1 of 12 3-point attempts. For the game, Golden State finished 5 of 18 behind the arc.

GAME NOTEBOOK: All fans at Friday's game received a piece of the basketball court from Hershey, Pa., where Chamberlain had his 100-point game. ... Warriors point guard Stephen Curry was sidelined against with a strained tendon in his right foot. He has played only three seconds in three games since the All-Star break.
