Sixers-Warriors Game Thread

New, comments

One day after the Academy Awards, can Brett Brown motivate the Sixers to put on an Oscar-winning performance against the Golden State Warriors?

NBA: Miami Heat at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Game Info

  • Date: February 27th, 2017
  • Time: 7:00 p.m. EST
  • Place: Wells Fargo Center
  • TV: Comcast SportsNet
  • The Bad Guys: Golden State of Mind

Probable Starters:

  • Golden State: Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Zaza Pachulia
  • Philadelphia: T.J. McConnell, Gerald Henderson, Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jahlil Okafor

Numbers of Note

  • 6: Number of consecutive victories in the series by the Warriors. The last time the Sixers defeated Golden State (3/2/13), Jrue Holiday lead the team with 27 points. Oh... and Royal Ivey chipped in 17 as well.
  • 4: Number of consecutive games of at least 18 points and 11 rebounds for Dario (aka “The Homie”, aka “Shi-Shi”) Saric.
  • 1: Games missed by Kevin Durant this season (last Friday vs. Brooklyn). He should be back tonight.
  • 0: Number of appearances by Nicki Minaj at the game tonight. She was in the building last year during the near-upset, but will likely be a no-show tonight due to SHETHER.
