Elton Brand had 23 points and 12 rebounds, Andre Iguodala added 15 points and the Philadelphia 76ers moved above .500 for the first time this season with an 89-81 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. Brand entered the game shooting 43 percent from the field but was 10-of-22 from the field and registered his seventh double-double in arguably the best performance this season for the 76ers' marquee free agent. Brand left the Los Angeles Clippers and for a five-year, $80 million contract with Philadelphia on July 9.

Thaddeus Young contributed 12 points and Samuel Dalembert had 16 rebounds for the Sixers, who improved to 7-6 and snapped a five-game losing streak to the Warriors.
