(NBA) Warriors beat rebuilding 76ers by 43 pts
(02-11 16:11)

Marreese Speights scored a career-high 32 points to hand his former team a near-record setback, leading the Golden State Warriors past the woeful Philadelphia 76ers 123-80 on Monday night.
Philadelphia, which lost 123-78 at the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night in a game it trailed by 56 points in the third quarter, nearly matched the NBA mark for the largest total margin of defeat in consecutive games. The Detroit Pistons lost by 95 points combined in back-to-back games in November 1966, according to STATS.
Michael Carter-Williams scored 24 points for a rebuilding 76ers team that never put up much of a fight. The two-game stretch was the worst in nearly 20 years for the 76ers, who lost back-to-back games in April 1994 by a combined 93 points.
No other team in NBA history has lost two straight games by at least 40 points each. Philadelphia has now done it twice.
Speights finished 12-of-15 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds, and Stephen Curry added 23 points and eight assists to help the Warriors go ahead by 49 in the fourth quarter. --AP
