(SportsNetwork.com) - The start of a six-game homestand went as expected for the Golden State Warriors and now theyll turn their attention to the Philadelphia 76ers Tuesday at Oracle Arena. The Warriors ended a two-game slide with Saturdays 110-97 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves and were led by Stephen Currys 25 points. Klay Thompson scored 21 points and the quartet of David Lee, Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes and Marreese Speights scored 10 points. Golden State shot 46.6 percent, scored 36 points on 25 Minnesota turnovers and posted a 30-19 scoring advantage in the third quarter. Lot of good stuff offensively. But I told our guys, if we want to win in May and June, we have to play every possession. You cant just completely lose focus, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Kerrs squad has won nine in a row at home and is 11-1 at Oracle Arena. The only loss at home occurred on Nov. 11 versus San Antonio. Golden State is 8-0 against Eastern Conference foes and won 10 in a row as the host back in 1994. It is 16-0 when scoring 100 or more points and averaging 107.4 ppg this season. The Warriors have a field goal percentage of 47.9. The Warriors, who are 19-3 in the last 22 games, will also host Toronto, Oklahoma City, Indiana and Cleveland on the homestand and lead the NBA with a 24-5 record (.828). Only Portland has more wins with a 25-7 mark (.781). Opponents are shooting a league-low 42.2 percent against Golden State. Meanwhile, Philadelphia is shooting an NBA-worst 41.2 percent and averaging a league-low 90.8 ppg. The Sixers are allowing 102.6 ppg and turning the ball over 17.9 times, which is also last in the NBA. The 76ers are 2-2 on a seven-game road trip and lost for the seventh time in the last nine tries with Saturdays 88-71 setback to the Utah Jazz. Tony Wroten scored a game-high 20 points and Robert Covington chipped in 17 for the Sixers, who shot 32.4 percent and made just 5-of-26 3-pointers. Philly trailed 69-66 with 6:02 remaining, but was outscored 19-5 the rest of the way. Michael Carter-Williams was held to eight points on 2-of-20 shooting and handed out six assists I credit some of their defense, but we just have a hard time scoring, said Sixers coach Brett Brown. Philadelphia is 4-11 on the road and still has stops to make in Phoenix and Los Angeles (Clippers). The Sixers were 9-32 on the road in 2013-14. The 76ers have failed to score 100 points in each of the last six games. They are 1-5 when hitting the century mark in scoring. In injury news, forward Luc Mbah a Moute (calf) is doubtful Tuesday and forward Nerlens Noel (ankle) is listed as questionable against the Warriors. Golden State and Philadelphia will play the first of two meetings this season and are scheduled to tip off again Feb. 9 in south Philly. The Warriors took both matchups with the Sixers a season ago recorded a 123-80 beating on Feb. 10 at Oracle Arena, where former Sixer Speights had 32 points. The Sixers are just 3-10 in the last 13 visits to Golden State. White Sox Joe Crede Jersey . He was 40.

Harvin is trying not to linger on the past, whether it was his hip surgery and recovery that kept him out of 15 of 16 regular-season games or the concussion that left him a spectator for the NFC championship game. Not with the Seahawks headed for a Super Bowl matchup against Denver. "Its been a roller coaster, but its all been a blessing. I wouldnt take anything back that happened this year. Its made me a stronger person," Harvin said on Thursday. "Its definitely been frustrating for a lot of people, not only myself but my teammates. Doug (Baldwin), some of the guys playing my position, not knowing whether Im going to be at practice. So it was definitely frustrating but its all over now. We get to play for the Super Bowl. Thats all in the past." Harvin returned to practice Wednesday after passing the leagues concussion protocol following the concussion he suffered in the NFC divisional playoff game against New Orleans. The injury was the latest bump in a season filled with starts and stops for Harvin. First was the trade from Minnesota and a lucrative contract with Seattle. Then came the discovery of a damaged labrum in his hip that required surgery in early August and caused him to miss the first 10 games of the regular season. When he returned in Week 11, Harvin was used sparingly, but the amount was too much for his hip and complications followed. He returned for the playoffs and was a significant part of Seattles game plan against the Saints in the divisional round when the next setback hit. Harvins head bounced off the turf of CenturyLink Field after leaping for a pass in the end zone in the second quarter of Seattles 23-15 win. And again, Harvin was left to be a spectator. "Frustrating. Thats the word that Ill use. Thhis whole year watching every single game was frustrating," Harvin said.dddddddddddd"But like I said having great teammates, great coaches it was good to be on the sideline and watch those guys perform." Hitting his head on the turf, just as New Orleans safety Malcolm Jenkins was hitting him in the back, was the second big hit Harvin took against the Saints. He said Thursday he did not believe he was being targeted. Harvin was hit by safety Rafael Bush in the first quarter of the game, a hit that drew a 15-yard penalty and a $21,000 fine from the NFL. "I thought they were just playing football," said Harvin, who said his history with migraines had no influence on the speed of his recovery from the concussion. The opportunities Harvin got against the Saints showed just what he could add to Seattles offence. He was used as a runner on a sweep to the perimeter that went for 9 yards and could have gone for more. Seattle tried to find him on deep routes down the seam of the defence and also underneath crossing patterns. He was also a successful decoy. On Marshawn Lynchs 15-yard touchdown run against the Saints, Harvin faked that he was about to catch a screen pass. The defence reacted and Lynch had a cutback lane open en route to the end zone. "Last year when we prepared for Percy, there were just so many things that we had to look for in a guy like him," Seattle safety Kam Chancellor said. "Its a guy that can be in the backfield, a guy that can be split out at receiver, its just so many ways you can use him." Despite all the setbacks, Harvins not viewing the Super Bowl as an opportunity to salvage his season. "Im trying to go out there and win a Super Bowl. Im not trying to save or be a hero or do anything," Harvin said. "Im trying to go out there and prepare to play a game I know how to play." cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
