    But after a disastrous third quarter, during which they shot 23.1 percent and were outscored 31-20, the Warriors regrouped in the fourth quarter to hold the 76ers to 14 points on 6-of-20 shooting.

    Rookie forward Dario Saric scored 25 points to lead Philadelphia (24-43), which has lost eight of its last 10 games.
