Sixers-Warriors Reaction Thread: Big Macs For Everyone!

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers snapped their seven-game losing streak with a 104-97 victory over the Golden State Warriors. Yes, this actually happened.

For the record, it wasn't pretty.

Midway through the second quarter, the Golden State Warriors led by 16 points, and the Philadelphia 76ers appeared to be headed to their eighth straight loss.

But a 15-1 run right before halftime cut the Golden State lead to three heading into intermission. And after going scoreless in the first period, Evan Turner went to work over the final three quarters, finishing with 22 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists as he led the Sixers to a 104-97 victory.

Tonight's win was a total team effort: The Sixers shot a ridiculous 12-for-18 from beyond the arc, and outrebounded the Warriors 48 to 35 (!!!!). Five players finished in double figures (led by Jrue Holiday's 27) as the 76ers were able to withstand a combined 59 points from Stephen Curry (30) and Klay Thompson (29).

But again, it wasn't pretty. The Sixers turned the ball over a million times, and nearly gave the game away on several occasions. But as they say, a win is a win.

Full recap to come. For now, enjoy the Big Macs.
