Emotions were running high tonight in Philadelphia.

It was the first game played by the Golden State Warriors since the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, and it took place in his hometown.

The Warriors kept the game s within striking distance all the way up until the 4th quarter. They would ultimately go on to lose 115-104.

D'Angelo Russell ended the game with 28 points on 10-of-22 shooting, including 6-of-12 from deep. Draymond Green finished with a very Draymond Green-like stat line of 9 points, 9 rebounds, and 12 assists.

Sixers center Joel Embiid played the game tonight wearing No. 24 as a tribute to Kobe. He would then score his 24th and final points of the game while hitting a Kobe-like fadeaway. You can't make this stuff up:

The Warriors are currently in last place in the NBA standings with a record of 10-38. They will play next this Thursday in Boston against the Celtics. Tip-off is at 5pm, coverage begins at 3:30pm right here on 95.7 The Game.
