Philadelphia shot 38% from the floor and 61% from the foul line. While the 76ers won the rebounding battle and grabbed an impressive 18 offensive boards, the horrendous 27 turnovers gave Golden State more opportunities to score. And they took advantage, ending with 56% shooting from the floor and knocking down 12 threes on 28 attempts.
Philadelphia's defense which recently broke into the top 10 in terms of points allowed per 100 possessions, will certainly take a hit after Golden State's performance.

Carter-Williams struggled again with his shot, scoring only 4 points on 1-7 FG. MCW has shot 3-27 (11%) over the last 2 games. Noel added 8 points and 7 rebounds but also shot inefficiently.
