Game Preview: Warriors at 76ers - 3/2/12
  • LAST TIME OUT
    David Lee scored a go-ahead basket with 30 seconds left and the Warriors held on for an 85-82 win in Atlanta on Wednesday. Lee tallied his 18th double-double of the season and Monta Ellis had 24 points and eight assists in the win. Dominic McGuire added 15 rebounds for the Warriors, who held Atlanta to 33.7 percent shooting. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. 76ERS
    The Warriors head into Philadelphia looking to build on the success they've already generated in this six-game road trip. The 76ers dominated the first matchup between the two teams on New Year's Eve, handing the Warriors their most lopsided defeat of the season. The Warriors struggled to make shots in that contest, which isn't too surprising considering that Philadelphia yields the fewest points per game (87.1) and the lowest field goal percentage against (.415). However, the 76ers have lost six of their last seven games, and the Warriors would like nothing more than to tally one more defeat on the Atlantic Division's leader.


  • HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE
    Friday's matchup will be played on the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game. Chamberlain achieved that feat as a member of the Philadelphia Warriors, so it's quite a coincidence that the Warriors are playing the Sixers on this day. Back in the Bay Area, the Warriors will celebrate the historic event by hosting a Road Viewing Party at Pedro's Cantina in San Francisco. Those attending the event will have the chance to receive special prizes and giveaways, including actual pieces of the court on which the 100-point game was played.


  • E-LEE-TE COMPANY
    Warriors forward David Lee is one of just four players in the NBA averaging at least 19 points and nine rebounds, joining All-Stars Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard, and Kevin Love. Lee is on pace to join a list of just seven other Warriors to achieve those figures in a season and would be the first to do so since Nate Thurmond posted 21.4 points and 16.1 rebounds in 1971-72.


  • STATISTICAL ANOMALY
    Dominic McGuire had 15 rebounds and no points in his second start of the season on Wednesday in Atlanta. McGuire became the second player (Marcus Camby, 20 on 1/27 at PHO) in the league this season and the second Warrior ever (Clyde Lee, twice, last: 20 on 3/2/74 vs. Chicago) to post 15-plus rebounds and no points.
