Matisse Thybulle guarding Steph Curry tonight like PM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz up 20 with 3 minutes left, timeout Washington.
Jazz are going to go 4-0 on a relatively tough road trip: CLE, MIN, PHI, WAS. Last three wins by big, big margins. It’s a really high level of play from the Jazz right now. – 9:15 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
But on the serious note, Thybulle is doing a solid job on Curry. He just needs to stay out of foul trouble. Thybulle just picked up his second foul early in the second quarter. – 9:15 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
2 fouls on Thybulle with 9:14 left in the 2nd quarter. Something to watch, as Doc Rivers has had Thybulle shadow Curry so far, and Thybulle’s done about as well defending Curry as you could have hoped. – 9:15 PM
Philadelphia 76ers @sixers
a ~𝒻𝒶𝓃𝒸𝓎~ Shake. 🥤 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
That was a forceful jam by Andre Drummond. My goodness, gracious. That was a grown man move. #Sixers9:14 PM
Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly
Matisse Thybulle just blocked a Steph Curry 3-pointer, which #Sixers fans thoroughly enjoyed. – 9:12 PM
Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee
So far, Steph Curry is 2-2 on 3s that don’t count & 0-2 on 3s that do. Steph doesn’t need much room to get off his shot, but Philly – & Mattisse Thybulle, in particular – isn’t even giving him those fractions of an inch to shoot. To his credit, Steph ain’t forcing anything. Yet. – 9:10 PM
Noel Harris @NorCalNoel916
I’m on the clock for the Chronicle right now, so I’ll let that be my excuse for switching from the Kings to Warriors. Maybe Steph will make my shift a bit easier and not break the #NBA 3-point record tonight. – 9:09 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
#Sixers lead 23-22 after one quarter. Steph Curry is shooting 1-6, including missing both of his three-pointers. He has 2 points. Andrew Wiggins leads the Warriors with 9 points, while Tyrese Maxey has 9 for the Sixers. Philly made 7 of 20 shots. – 9:08 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
After 1Q: Warriors trail 76ers 23-22
-Curry: 2 pts, 1/6 FG, 0/2 3p
-Wiggins: 9 pts 4/6 FG, 1/2 3p – 9:08 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Sixers swarmed Steph Curry well in that first quarter, led by Matisse Thybulle at point of attack. Struggled to find a crack of space. Zero 3s. Missed five of six shots. Only 22 Warriors points. Down one. – 9:07 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Steph Curry is off to a 1/5 start and 0/2 from deep. Philly leads 23-22 after 1 with Tyrese Maxey scoring 9 points. #Sixers9:07 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Shake Milton getting the Steph Curry assignment now with the backup unit.
Annndddd as soon as I type that, Thybulle back at the scorer’s table. – 9:04 PM
Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly
Some boos when former #Sixers wing Andre Iguodala comes into game for #Warriors. Iggy had missed last 11 games with right knee soreness. – 9:04 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Iguodala checks in for the first time in weeks — gets a nice ovation from the Philly crowd. Iguodala seemed to be moving around well during the end of last night’s practice and pregame warmups. – 9:03 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Embiid and Harris are shooting a combined 2-for-8, yet the Sixers lead 23-22 with 2:05 left in the first quarter. – 9:01 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Noticeable that Joel Embiid has felt at his right side a few times and stretched it out during the last two free throws. Doesn’t appear to be feeling 100% after a right abdominal injury last game. – 8:59 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Looks like Embiid is still dealing with his abdominal pain. He tried to stretch it out moments ago. – 8:58 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Joel Embiid is grabbing at his right side again. He left the Jazz game on Thursday briefly due to right abdominal pain. It looks like it’s bothering him again. #Sixers8:58 PM
Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly
Attacking Maxey is the best Maxey. #Sixers8:57 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
On the heels of Tobias Harris being honored tonight with the NBA Cares Community Assist Award, 76ers managing partner Josh Harris has committed $20,000 to the Mary McLeod Bethune School as part of Tobias’ Lit Labs program. PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Second foul on Draymond Green six minutes into the game. Joel Embiid got him and Looney in foul trouble in their only matchup last season. Could set up a huge Embiid night if Green is either off the floor or forced to defend carefully. – 8:51 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
An early issue for the Warriors — Draymond has two early fouls in the first 5:55 of the game. – 8:50 PM
Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
Tyrese Maxey absolutely just yeeted a block… idk how else to say it but that’s what happened
He’s also 2-2 from 3, which is nice – 8:50 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
A plot twist to the plot twist: Tyrese Maxey will be the one who knocks down 10 triples tonight #Sixers8:49 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Jordan Poole fires up a 3 on a ‘1-on-4’ break
??? – 8:49 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Lots of buzz in the arena tonight for Sixers vs Warriors.
(Like, a literal buzz. Something going on with the sound system).
Sixers up 11-9 early. Still 10 more 3s to go. – 8:48 PM

👏👏👏👏 PM

Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee
OK, it’s my first 76ers game since the pandemic shutdown in March 2020. I did NOT expect to see Ben Simmons highlights in the pregame hype video. That was surprising. Of course, the crowd booed whenever one of his dunks flashed across the jumbotron. That was totally predictable. – 8:42 PM
Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly
#Sixers start game with Matisse Thybulle on Steph Curry. – 8:41 PM

Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
My forecast: Stephen Curry breaks Ray Allen’s all-time record for 3s on Tuesday night at MSG … with the Warriors weighing a night of rest for him in Indiana. However …
Curry only needs 10 3s tonight in Philly and has done that 22 times. More coverage:…8:35 PM

I’m watching Seth Curry warming up in his home arena. On the other side of the court, the lower bowl is full of fans with their phones out…to watch his brother. Seth is probably used to it by now…but yeah, Steph just hit 4 in a row from halfcourt 😆 – 7:49 PM
Philadelphia 76ers @sixers

Stephen Curry casually knocking down 5 of 6 logo threes: PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
In a sea full of Steph jerseys lined up around the Warriors tunnel, a fan held out an Andrew Wiggins jersey hoping Wiggins would sign it. To Wiggins’ credit, he saw it, stopped and signed the jersey — and made the fan’s night. – 7:29 PM
Jonah Ballow @jonahballow
Steph Curry needs 10 3s to break the all-time record.
— Primetime national TV game
— vs. his brother
— over/under set at 6.5
— averages 5.5 per gm
Will he do it?

Plot twist, Seth Curry is the one who will hit 10 3’s tonight. Not Steph. – 7:11 PM

Andre Iguodala is a game-time decision in Philadelphia. Warming up in next hour or so and then Warriors will decide. – 7:01 PM

With Steph Curry on verge of being No. 1 on NBA’s 3-point list, my piece earlier on Steph’s off-season regimen requiring all of his shots to go through middle of the rim. Steph: “It was a mental challenge of trying to be as perfect as possible.” PM
Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly
#Sixers coach Doc Rivers on coaching Ray Allen, whose career 3-point record the #Warriors ’ Steph Curry is 10 away from breaking: PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
No injuries for the Sixers tonight for their game against the Warriors, according to Doc Rivers. No lingering concerns about Joel Embiid’s abdominal issue that bothered him during Thursday’s loss here in Philly to the Jazz, either. – 6:47 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Sixers are fully healthy tonight vs. Golden State. – 6:47 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
If Steph Curry doesn’t break the 3-point record tonight, I wonder if Steph might rest Monday vs. the Pacers (front end of a back-to-back) and attempt to break the record Tuesday vs. the Knicks at Madison Square Garden… – 6:33 PM

Will Stephen Curry break Ray Allen’s three-point record tonight in Philadelphia? – 5:16 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
The moment Steph Curry knew he belonged in the NBA came during a three-point contest in Dallas in 2010. Along the way, everybody who has watched him play had their own realization of when they knew he was different.
Everybody has a Steph story.…4:28 PM

📅 On this day in 1964, the @Golden State Warriors Wilt Chamberlain had 40 points and 17 rebounds versus the Pistons, starting a streak of 227 consecutive double-doubles.
It’s the longest such streak in NBA history. Chamberlain also owns the second (220) and third (133) longest such streaks. PM

But I haven’t seen him doing this after practice since injury. #Suns PM
