Stephen Curry, driving past the 76ers’ James Anderson during the first half, has a triple double to lead the Warriors.

PHILADELPHIA — Evan Turner had to send a good-natured text to Andre Iguodala after the 76ers improved to 3-0.

"You're next."

Hardly.

Iguodala tormented his former team with a game better than any he played in eight seasons there. He made a career-high seven 3-pointers, scored 32 and had a behind-the-back assist for the highlight reel, and the Warriors handed the 76ers their first loss of the season, 110-90 on Monday night.

"I got a good look or two, and confidence started flowing," Iguodala said.

Stephen Curry had 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds for his second career triple double.

The 76ers were one of the surprises of the season. Iguodala, a former Sixers All-Star, brought them back to reality.

He set the pace with six 3s and 27 points in the first half and made the play of the young season, a behind-the-back midair assist to David Lee. Iguodala whipped it from the corner at about the 3-point line and hit the former Gator in stride.

"When I was here, that was just natural to me to make plays like that," Iguodala said.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Jerryd Bayless had all of his 15 points in the fourth quarter to key a rally and lead the host Grizzlies to a 95-88 victory over the Celtics. … C.J. Miles scored 19, and the host Cavaliers held off a late rally for a 93-92 victory that handed the Timberwolves their first loss of the season.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: 76ers rookie Michael Carter-Williams joined Shaquille O'Neal as the only players to win player of the week to open a career. Carter-Williams won the Eastern Conference honor after averaging 20.7 points and 9.0 assists. … Wizards coach Randy Wittman was fined $20,000 by the NBA for using profane language during a news conference after Friday's loss to the 76ers.
