Warriors shake off slow start to top 76ers for fifth straight win


The Warriors sure know how to win the ugly ones. They also know how to morph terrible first halves into 20-point victories.

The Chase Center crowd wanted to cheer in the first half Wednesday but really didn’t have much to go rowdy about. Then Jordan Poole woke ‘em all up with a first-half buzzer beater from beyond the halfcourt logo. The Warriors rode that momentum into the second half and rolled to a 116-96 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers for their fifth straight victory.
