Stephen Curry scored 25 of his 37 points in the second half as the Golden State Warriors handed the Philadelphia 76ers their fourth straight loss with a 119-107 victory on Tuesday in San Francisco.

Jonathan Kuminga had 26 points, Andrew Wiggins added 23 and Brandin Podziemski had 11 for Golden State, which ended a two-game skid.

Philadelphia trailed 93-90 before the Warriors put together an 11-1 run and moved ahead 104-91 on Kuminga’s free throw with 5:16 remaining. The Sixers made three 3-pointers to pull within 111-104 with 2:33 left before the Warriors held on for the victory.

Sixers star Joel Embiid returned after missing two games due to left knee soreness and finished with 14 points on 5-of-18 shooting. Embiid headed to the locker room with just over four minutes left in the game after Kuminga fell on his knee while both were going for a loose ball.

Tobias Harris led Philadelphia with 26 points and 10 rebounds. Furkan Korkmaz scored 19 points, Kelly Oubre Jr. added 15, Patrick Beverley had 12 and Jaden Springer chipped in 10.

The Warriors shot 55.7 percent from the field and 14 of 32 (43.8 percent) from 3-point range.

Golden State opened the game by shooting 64.7 percent overall in the first quarter, but Philadelphia led 28-23 after holding an 8-0 advantage in offensive rebounds.

The Sixers maintained their lead for most of the second quarter before the Warriors closed it on a 16-6 run to move ahead 52-50. Harris scored 15 points before the break for the Sixers, while Embiid was held to eight on 3-of-11 shooting.

Golden State stretched its lead to 14 points late in the third quarter and ended the period with an 86-77 lead. Curry drilled four 3-pointers and scored 15 points in the frame.

Golden State played without Klay Thompson, who was scratched before the game due to illness.

Philadelphia guard Tyrese Maxey missed his third straight game with a sprained left ankle. The Sixers were also missing De’Anthony Melton (back), Nicolas Batum (hamstring) and Robert Covington (left knee).
