Stephen Curry scores 37, Warriors beat 76ers 119-107 in NBA game

Golden State Warriors beat the Philadelphia 76ers 119-107 Tuesday night after Draymond Green's return, Curry scoring 37 points with 8 3-pointers.

The Golden State Warriors have been looking like their balanced, ball-sharing selves again since Draymond Green returned from his second suspension of the season. Stephen Curry is thriving, Andrew Wiggins is working back into dominant form, and Jonathan Kuminga is emerging as an electrifying playmaker. In the game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Curry scored 37 points with eight 3-pointers, Kuminga added 26 points, and the Warriors secured a 119-107 victory. Guard Klay Thompson sat out with an illness.

Coach Steve Kerr credits Green for lifting up Kuminga and Wiggins. Tobias Harris had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Joel Embiid scored 14 points for the Sixers before leaving with an injury. The Warriors' win was important as it marked the end of their homestand following two straight one-point losses. The 76ers dropped their fourth straight following a six-game winning streak. They hoped to have Tyrese Maxey return but he sat out his third straight game with a sprained left ankle.

Wiggins made his first five shots and scored in double figures for the sixth time in seven games. Kuminga extended his career-best streak of games with 20 or more points to seven. He has reached double figures in 24 consecutive games, also his most. Brandin Podziemski replaced Thompson and scored 11 points. He drew his 20th charge, second-most in the league. Dario Saric dished out seven of Golden State's 32 assists and Draymond Green had six to go with nine points and six rebounds.

Warriors guard Moses Moody is likely to return from injury during the upcoming road trip. He has been cleared to practice after straining his left calf. Chris Paul can begin light on-court individual workouts wearing a splint on his surgically repaired left hand that he injured. The Warriors said he would be re-evaluated again in two weeks.

The 76ers will play at Utah on Thursday night to conclude a four-game road trip, while the Warriors will face Memphis on Friday night to begin a five-game trip that includes a rematch in Philadelphia on Feb. 7.
