PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Andre Iguodala made a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 32 points, Stephen Curry had 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors handed the Philadelphia 76ers their first loss of the season, 110-90 on Monday night.
The overachieving 76ers (3-1) were one of the early surprises of the season. Iguodala, a former Sixers All-Star, brought them back to reality.
Iguodala was sensational, setting the pace early with six 3s and 27 points in the first half. He also made the play of the young season, a behind-the-back, midair assist to David Lee. Iguodala whipped it from about the 3-point line and hit Lee in stride down the lane.
Sixers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams, the Eastern Conference player of the week, missed 13 of 17 shots and scored 18 points.
Iguodala had scored only 26 points the first three games.
CAVALIERS 93, TIMBERWOLVES 92
CLEVELAND (AP) — C.J. Miles scored 19 points, Kyrie Irving added 15 and Cleveland held off a late rally to hand Minnesota its first loss of the season.
The Timberwolves nearly erased a 23-point deficit midway through the third quarter to stay unbeaten, but Kevin Love, the NBA's leading scorer, missed a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining and the ball was tipped away as time ran out.
Kevin Martin led the Timberwolves with 23 points. Love added 17 points and 13 rebounds for Minnesota, which won its first three games and was off to its best start since going 6-0 in 2001-02.
Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett, taken with the No. 1 pick in the draft, missed all three of his shots and is 0 for 15 from the field this season. His only points have come on two free throws in the season opener.
