PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Kelenna Azubuike made a 3-pointer from the left corner with 6.1 seconds left in overtime, giving the Golden State Warriors a come-from-behind victory over the Philadelphia 76ers 100-98 Saturday night.
The 76ers had one last chance after Azubuike's basket, but Louis Williams lost his footing in the lane and turned the ball over.
Azubuike's basket came after Andre Iguodala gave Philadelphia a 98-97 lead on a runner in heavy traffic with 13.4 seconds left.
Monta Ellis equaled his career high with 31, while Baron Davis came on strong in overtime and scored 22 for Golden State, which has won five of six games since an 0-6 start. Andris Biedrins grabbed 14 rebounds for the Warriors.
Golden State wrapped up its five-game road trip with a 4-1 record, the first time the Warriors finished with a winning mark on a trip of five or more games since December 1980.
Iguodala led the 76ers with 26 points, Andre Miller added 23, and Williams scored 18 off the bench.
Neither team scored in the final 2:12 of regulation after Iguodala hit a pair of free throws to tie the game at 90.
Philadelphia's Samuel Dalembert missed a shot from the foul line with 33.6 seconds left, Stephen Jackson missed from the corner at the other end and Iguodala failed on a 17-foot jumper with a hand in his face and the clock winding down in regulation.
The 76ers took advantage of Golden State's sluggish start to build a double-digit lead midway through the first quarter. The Warriors missed 11 of their first 13 shots from the floor, while Dalembert's bucket capped an 8-0 run and put Philadelphia up 19-6.
Golden State shot just 14-for-43 in the first half (32.6 percent) but stayed close at 57-45 thanks to Ellis, who scored 16 points before the break.
The Warriors opened the third quarter with a 15-2 run, capped by Baron Davis' three-point play that gave Golden State a 60-59 lead, their first of the night.
Iguodala restored the 76ers' lead with a three-point play on Philadelphia's next possession. The teams seesawed back-and-forth the remainder of the quarter as the 76ers went ahead 72-66 on Miller's free throw, but Golden State scored the next seven points and forged back ahead, 73-72, on a foul shot by Mickael Pietrus. Thaddeus Young's spin move put the 76ers back on top 76-75 heading into the final quarter.
Notes: Ellis scored the most points by a 76ers opponent this season The Warriors last 4-1 road trip came in Nov. 1973 Golden State's Jackson is averaging 20.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists in five contests since his return from a seven-game NBA suspension The Warriors have won four straight and six of seven against the 76ers.
