Warriors Vs. Sixers Halftime Score: Philly's Bench Provides Early Spark

The bench did the heavy lifting for the Philadelphia 76ers in the first half, helping the team to a three-point lead over the Golden State Warriors at the break, 50-47. Lou Williams and Thaddeus Young combined to score nearly half of the Sixers first-half points, and the bench, with only three players on the scoresheet, outscored the starters over the first 24 minutes.

Young scored a team-high 12 points in the half, with Lou Williams adding 10. The two were the only Philadelphia players in double-figures in the half. The starters operated in a modified binary way, with each player scoring either six or three points in the half -- Jrue Holiday, Elton Brand and Lavoy Allen each had six.

Monta Ellis and David Lee each paced the Warriors in the half, scoring 14 points apiece. Dorell Wright was the only other Golden State starter to score in the half, adding seven points.
