76ers overcome slow start, roll past Warriors

Oakland, California:

Andre Iguodala had 14 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, Lou Williams added 23 points off the bench and the Philadelphia 76ers overcame a sluggish start to beat the Golden State Warriors 107-79 on Saturday night.

One night after blowing a 13-point lead in a loss to Utah, Philadelphia fell behind by that same margin before outscoring the Warriors 69-41 over the second and third quarters.

Spencer Hawes had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the 76ers, who have one more stop left on their season-opening, five-game road trip - the longest trip to start a season in franchise history.

Stephen Curry, back in the line-up after a one-game absence due to a sprained ankle, scored 21 points for Golden State, which played without guard Monta Ellis.
