76ers top Warriors 105-83 on Chamberlain night (AP)
PHILADELPHIA (AP)—The 76ers needed nine players to score to beat the Warriors—and top The Big Dipper.
Lou Williams scored 25 points, and Elton Brand had 14 points and 14 rebounds to lead Philadelphia to a 105-83 victory over Golden State on Friday in the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game.
The Sixers topped 100 points for the first time in 20 games on the night they paid tribute to the record Chamberlain set for the Philadelphia Warriors against the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962, at the Hershey Sports Arena.
“All right, so we got more than a hundred. We beat Wilt,” said Brand, laughing.
