The Celtics fell down by 16 in the first quarter, but an early second-quarter run got them back in the game.

Warriors 124 (12-4), Sixers 116 (8-7)

Philly was operating on all cylinders straight out the gate, dominating their way to a 47-28 lead after the first quarter.

Golden State detonated for a 47-point quarter of its own, while holding Philly to just 15 points in the third.

Stephen Curry finished the game with 35 points, including 20 in the deciding third quarter.

After the game, Kevin Durant quipped that the Warriors badly wanted to win, especially because they didn’t want Joel Embiid talking trash on twitter afterward.

“We wanted to win this game really, really bad. After being down by so much, we didn’t want to lose to these guys, especially [Embiid].

 

“He woulda gone straight to twitter and start talkin’ shit.”
