Golden State Warriors (5-7) at Philadelphia 76ers (6-6), 5:00 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The Golden State Warriors embark on a five-game road swing Sunday when the arrive in the City of Brotherly Love to face the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Warriors may also be sporting a new toy for coach Don Nelson after the team sent disgruntled forward Al Harrington to New York for high-scoring guard Jamal Crawford on Friday.
Chicago's Larry Hughes burned his old team for 26 points, getting the start in place of an injured Luol Deng as the Chicago Bulls pulled out a 115-110 victory over the Warriors in Oakland on Friday.
Stephen Jackson poured in a game-high 32 points and dished out six assists for the Warriors. Corey Maggette scored 24 and grabbed seven rebounds while Andris Biedrins registered a double-double with 23 points and 10 boards as Golden State had its modest, albeit season-high, two-game winning streak halted.
Meanwhile, the Sixers won for the fourth time in five games Friday when Elton Brand scored 17 points, and made the go-ahead jumper with 57.9 seconds left, to propel Philadelphia to an 89-88 win over his former team, the Los Angeles Clippers.
Brand, who played with LA for seven years but signed with the Sixers in the offseason, also had eight rebounds. Thaddeus Young also had 17 points for Philadelphia.
Andre Iguodala contributed 14 points, 12 assists and six boards for the Sixers, whose starting five all scored in double-figures.
Iguodala is questionable for tonight's game with flu-like symptoms while the Warriors' Kelenna Azubuike is also questionable with a sprained left knee.
The Sixers, who are 4-2 at the Wachovia Center this season, will be looking to snap a five-game skid against Golden State. The last time the 76ers beat the Warriors was on December 21, 2005 in Philly.
