|Golden State temporarily halted their slide right out of the playoff picture with a recent three-game winning streak at home. They hit another chute immediately upon heading out east or a four-game trip. The Sixers can extend GSW's losing jag to four tonight, or tack another onto heir own, pushing it to eight.|

|It seems like wraps fall into one of two categories: either a blowout win over a bad team or a heartbreaking loss to a good team. This one was the former as the Sixers made a fool of the apple of so many fans' eyes, Monta Ellis. The man who made him look the fool? None other than Andre Iguodala, the one so many want to trade for Ellis. (game capsule)|

|The OKC game is in the past. It still stings, but the Sixers need to put it out of their minds and get back to work tonight. You can only beat the team directly in front of you and that team is Mark Jackson's Golden State Warriors squad. Focus on that, worry about the good teams when you face them again, you're going to have plenty of chances.|
|The Sixers finished off 2011 in style with a 107-79 trouncing of the Golden State Warriors (game capsule). Happy New Year everyone, and just remember, by the transitive property, the Sixers are better than the Bulls and Knicks (both lost to GSW).|
|A slow start in the first followed by a bench explosion to push the lead to 18 points, then a miserable third quarter before Collins found the right combo. Jrue, Meeks, Turner, Iguodala and Thad played all but two seconds of the final 10 minutes in the 4th and OT. The exclamation point on the win came on Andre Iguodala's 10th assist with 17 seconds left.|
|A golden opportunity to start the trip 3-2 soured a couple hours prior to the tip for the Sixers when word spread that Andre Iguodala wouldn't be available for the game. At that point, you knew it was going to be a long night. And it was.|
|It wasn't a good win. It wasn't a solid win. It wasn't a pretty win. It may have even been a dangerous win, but it was definitely a win. After blowing a 24-point lead in the second half, Lou Williams hit a series of clutch shots to snatch victory from the jaws of, well, an embarrassing collapse.|
|The injury-riddled Golden State Warriors are one of the eight teams languishing below the Sixers in league-wide standings. In fact, their 16-39 mark makes them the proud owners of the league's third-worst record. The teams met in Philly earlier in the season, and the Sixer picked them apart on their way to a blowout victory. Preview and game thread after the jump.|
