WATCH: Barnes drills dagger three, Warriors survive Sixers' comeback

The Philadelphia 76ers almost beat the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

Trailing at one point by 24, the Sixers mounted a furious comeback in the second half to tie the game late in the fourth quarter. Philadelphia's comeback included a four-point play by Isaiah Cannon and a steal and dunk by Ish Smith that tied the game with 22 seconds left on the clock. But with the game on the line, the Warriors turned to Harrison Barnes, who nailed the winning 3-pointer.

It was a valiant effort by the Sixers, who remain at the bottom of the league with a 7–41 record. The Warriors on the other hand still have the best record in the NBA and improved to 43-4.
