Warriors overcome terrible first half, beat Sixers with sparks from Toscano-Anderso and Poole

SAN FRANCISCO — The first half of this Thanksgiving Eve game saw, arguably, one of the worst performances by the Warriors this year. But these warriors have no problem in recovering from their worst. Led by Juan Toscano-Anderson and Jordan Poole, the Warriors crossed a 19-point deficit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 116-96 to a 20-point victory.

That half was dragged down primarily by a sluggish and disjointed first quarter in which the Warriors shot 23 points 8-of-19 (42%) and three 3-of-9s from the field.

The deteriorating Golden State’s lethargy was a suffocating Philadelphia defense that switched well to sink the Warriors’ off-ball movement. Curry completed the half of a 5-of-10, 3-of-7 from three point land as Danny Green and the Sixers kept him close.

The NBA’s top defense seemed poised against the Sixers, who were attacking with dribbles and committing too many touch fouls. Draymond got into a foul before the green half with four individual fouls.

In the middle of the second quarter, the Warriors were down 19 points – the biggest loss of the season by four points. With minutes to the first half, the Warriors locked defensively with Green on the bench and climbed into a nine-point deficit when Jordan Poole hit the buzzer-beater from half-court to half-court.

It sounded like an alarm for the Warriors in the second half as they came out of their sleep. The Warriors took the lead in the third quarter.
