On the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game, which happened in a small gym not too far from the Wells Fargo Center in Hershey, Pa., the Philadelphia 76ers and the Golden State Warriors -- for whom Chamberlain played when they were in Philly a half-century ago -- played a game that was largely a celebration of Wilt's historic night. The Sixers did The Stilt justice on this night, scoring 105 points and beating the Warriors by 22 points, 105-83.
The Sixers dominated the Warriors on the interior (I told you they did Wilt justice), grabbing 51 rebounds to the Warriors' 39. Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala both registered double-doubles, but the closest anyone on the Sixers came to 100 was Louis Williams and his 25 points off the bench on 9-15 shooting, 3-6 from deep.
David Lee, one of the most offensively gifted big men in the league, led the Warriors with 24 points and 15 rebounds, but the rest of the frontcourt for the Dubs got thoroughly dominated. Ekpe Udoh and Andris Biedrins combined for three rebounds in 30 minutes. Heck, even Lavoy Allen, starting because Spencer Hawes can't stay healthy, put up 10 points and seven rebounds against the Warriors' bigs.
Monta Ellis kept the Warriors close in the first half, but he went cold in the second, and with his scoring went any hopes Golden State had of winning this game, their third straight they've had to play without Stephen Curry.
