Brown said before the game that he was happy his team had a chance to quickly atone for its horrendous showing in Los Angeles. Instead, the 76ers had another embarrassing performance.
The defeat could’ve been much worse, too.
Warriors coach Mark Jackson put in most of his reserves before the fourth quarter, though the highlights didn’t stop from one of them. Speights made a step-back jumper to put Golden State up 107-58 with 9:41 to play before leaving to another ovation with 3:02 left.
Brown kept most of his starters in until the final minutes to slice the deficit down a little.
"Don’t anybody feel sorry for us," Brown said. "We will wake up and be (OK) tomorrow."
NOTES: The Warriors swept the season series against the 76ers for the first time since the 2007-08 season. ... Sixers reserve Hollis Thompson missed the game with a sprained right ankle. ...
