My look at some of the best and worst performances and happenings from Golden State’s 110-90 victory over the 76ers Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center:
Best performance: It was a no-brainer to give this award to Andre Iguodala. The Golden State swingman made a career-high seven three-pointers on 11 attempts to finish with a game-high 32 points. Twenty-seven of his points came before intermission. Iguodala also finished with three steals, three assists, three rebounds and a blocked shot.
Worst performance: There’s no way that Michael Carter-Williams could have avoided receiving this award. The Sixers standout point guard finally played like a rookie, making careless turnovers and jacking up shots. Carter-Williams scored 18 points, but made just 4 of 17 shots attempts – including 1 for 7 on three-pointers. He also finished with a game-high six turnovers. All this occurred on a day when he was named the Eastern Conference player of the week.
Best defensive performance: This award goes to Stephen Curry. The Warriors point guard finished with a game-high five steals to go with a blocked shot. Seven of his 10 rebounds came on the defensive end. More than just a defensive stopper, Curry finished with 18 points and 12 assists to post his second career triple-double.
