Warriors 110, 76ers 90
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 host Philadelphia 76ers their first loss of the season 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.
The preseason Las Vegas pick as the worst team in the NBA, the Sixers beat Miami and Chicago to put them on the brink of their first 4-0 start since 2000-01.
Staying undefeated was never much of an option after the opening minutes.
Iguodala hit three 3s in the first quarter to torment his former team and help Golden State build a 16-point lead. Iguodala was traded in 2012 to Denver as part of a four-team trade that saw the Sixers land Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum. Bynum never played a second for the Sixers and signed with the Cavaliers. Iguodala left the Nuggets to sign with the Warriors.
Grizzlies 95, Celtics 88
Jerryd Bayless keyed a fourth-quarter rally, scoring all of his 15 points in the period to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a victory over the visiting Boston Celtics.
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.
