While starting point guard Andre Miller is deservedly getting a great deal of credit for the 76ers winning eight of their last 11 games, backcourt mate Willie Green has also been playing very good basketball. While Green has been effective for six weeks, he has been even better of late. He is averaging 19.8 points and shooting 35-for-69 (.507) from the field in the past four games.

Green turned in his best all-around performance of the season in Wednesday's 101-89 win over the Magic. He scored a season-high 26 points, tied season-highs with six rebounds and five assists and blocked a season-best two shots.

"He hasn't been settling for the three-point shot," said Sixers coach Maurice Cheeks. "He's been putting the ball on the floor and getting inside the paint a little bit. A lot of it is due to Andre Miller, who has a knack for finding people under the basket for easy lay-ups."

Green, a fifth-year pro, said the key is for him to continue to be assertive on the court. If he keeps attacking the rim, he'll score or find his way to the foul line.

"It's that time of the year to take it up another notch," Green said. "I'm expecting more out of myself. Anytime I'm aggressive at both ends of the floor, I can be solid."

WARRIORS 119, SIXERS 97: Philly started a three-game Western swing Friday with a loss to Golden State.

The Sixers (26-33) never recovered from starting the game 0-for-14 from the field with five turnovers. They were outscored 33-9 from three-point range, shot .404 from the floor to the Warriors' .511 and blocked two shots to Golden State's 12.

Andre Miller and Rodney Carney tied for team-high honors with 18 points. Carney's total was a season-high. Willie Green and Lou Williams added 17 apiece, while Andre Iguodala had 15.

The Warriors' 41 second-quarter points were the most against the Sixers this season. Philly was outscored in each of the four quarters and had 19 turnovers to Golden State's 14.

The Sixers, who host the Suns Saturday before facing the Clippers Monday, finished February with an 8-5 record.
