NBA CAPSULES: Warriors hand 76ers first loss of season

PHILADELPHIA — Andre Iguodala made a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 32 points, Stephen Curry had 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors handed the Philadelphia 76ers their first loss of the season, 110-90 on Monday night.

The overachieving 76ers (3-1) were one of the early surprises of the season. Iguodala, a former Sixers All-Star, brought them back to reality.

Iguodala was sensational, setting the pace early with six 3s and 27 points in the first half. He also made the play of the young season, a behind-the-back, midair assist to David Lee. Iguodala whipped it from about the 3-point line and hit Lee in stride down the lane.

Sixers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams, the Eastern Conference player of the week, missed 13 of 17 shots and scored 18 points.

Iguodala had scored only 26 points the first three games.

CLIPPERS 137, ROCKETS 118

J.J. Redick scored 19 of his 26 points in the first half to lead seven players in double figures, and Los Angeles handed Houston its first loss of the season in Dwight Howard's return to Staples Center.

Chris Paul added 23 points and 17 assists, Jamal Crawford had 21 points, and Blake Griffin scored 18 for the Clippers, who led the entire game and tied a franchise record with 78 points in the first half.

Howard finished with 13 points and nine rebounds after getting roundly booed in his first game in Los Angeles since leaving the Lakers and signing with Houston in the NBA's biggest free agent move last summer.

Jared Dudley added 15 points and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Clippers, who have won five in a row against Houston at home and three straight overall.

CAVALIERS 93, TIMBERWOLVES 92

C.J. Miles scored 19 points, Kyrie Irving added 15 and Cleveland held off a late rally to hand Minnesota its first loss of the season.

The Timberwolves nearly erased a 23-point deficit midway through the third quarter to stay unbeaten, but Kevin Love, the NBA's leading scorer, missed a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining and the ball was tipped away as time ran out.

Kevin Martin led the Timberwolves with 23 points. Love added 17 points and 13 rebounds for Minnesota, which won its first three games and was off to its best start since going 6-0 in 2001-02.

Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett, taken with the No. 1 pick in the draft, missed all three of his shots and is 0 for 15 from the field this season. His only points have come on two free throws in the season opener.

GRIZZLIES 95, CELTICS 88

Jerryd Bayless keyed a fourth-quarter rally, scoring all of his 15 points in the period to lead Memphis over Boston.

Bayless was 6 of 7 in the quarter to help Memphis erase a six-point Boston lead with just under 9 minutes to play.

Zach Randolph and Mike Conley also had 15 for Memphis, Conley handing out eight assists. Marc Gasol finished with 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field and grabbed eight rebounds.

Jeff Green led the Celtics with 22 points, while Jared Sullinger scored 16, going 2 of 3 from outside the arc. Avery Bradley scored 14 and Jordan Crawford finished with 12.

The Celtics fell to 0-4 under rookie coach Brad Stevens.
