Losses on the road aren't unusual for the Golden State Warriors, but problems on offense are.

The Warriors (21-25) look to end a six-game road losing streak and bounce back from two subpar scoring games when they face the Philadelphia 76ers (15-32) on Friday night.

Golden State, 4-17 on the road, hasn't won away from Oracle Arena since a 97-89 victory over New Orleans on Jan. 2.

The Warriors are usually able to be productive offensively on the road, but they haven't been as effective in their last two games. They're averaging 95.5 points - 10 below their season average - while shooting 42 percent from the field (63-for-149) and 8 percent (3-for-35) from 3-point range.

Golden State's defense, meanwhile, has been consistently bad.

Atlanta, one of the NBA's worst offensive teams, set a season high in points in their 115-94 defeat of the Warriors on Wednesday night. Golden State ranks last in the league in scoring defense, allowing 107.1 points per game.

"We keep playing bad and that's pretty much it," Warriors guard Baron Davis said.

"In order to win on the road, no matter who you play, you've got to play with a sense of urgency. And some passion and some heart and some smarts, and that's what we're not doing."

Al Harrington continues to be a bright spot for the Warriors. He had 21 points Wednesday and is averaging 22.5 in six games since being acquired from Indiana.

"We've just got to keep fighting, and the biggest thing for us is we just need to get a win and go from there," Harrington said.

Harrington, though, has struggled against the 76ers this season, averaging 10.5 points while shooting 39 percent in two games while with the Pacers.

Warriors guard Monta Ellis came off the bench Wednesday and scored two points in 10 minutes. Ellis, who has started eight of his last 11 games and is averaging 17.1 points and 4.1 assists on the season, suffered a sprained right ankle against Cleveland on Tuesday night.

Philadelphia is on its best run of the season, winning five of eight.

The 76ers' success began when 7-footer Steven Hunter joined 6-11 center Samuel Dalembert in the starting lineup. The duo combined for 25 boards as Philadelphia outrebounded New Orleans 58-40 in an 89-78 victory Wednesday night.

The Sixers beat their previous rebounding high by five in as their new starting frontcourt tandem had its best performance on the boards.

"It's a comfortable fit," said Dalembert, averaging a team-high 8.4 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game. "I'm going to be there for (Hunter), and he's going to be there for me."

Andre Iguodala scored 22 points, and is averaging 23.0 in his last seven games.

Davis had 21 points and 16 assists, and Matt Barnes had 25 points and eight rebounds to lead the Warriors to a 116-97 win Dec. 26 in the teams' first meeting.
