MANY BOXERS ARE born with nothing and die with little more than a record and a reputation. Philadelphia's Matthew Saad Muhammad fought past his prime, as boxers often do, and when the last bell rang, he had tallied up an admirable record of 49-16-3 with 35 knockouts. Muhammad's reputation as a warrior, though, was written in his own blood long before he retired or took most of those losses. "Miracle Matthew" was a boxer willing to make that painful trade-off, take a punch to land one, and he was a sure bet for an entertaining night, the epitome of everything Philadelphia wants from its athletes.

Kuf Knotz is the Philadelphia hip-hop universe's peaceable guy, a righteous dude whose lyrics are loving, whose rhythms are supple, and whose every move is all about the bass and the brotherhood. Considering how tense things are in America, Knotz is a model citizen of bliss, an art form in and of himself, as heard on albums such as Boombox Logic and his brand-new A Positive Light . "A musical outlet helps me stay propitious by letting me express - put my feelings and energy into - new music," says Knotz, a Bryn Mawr native who moved to Philadelphia nine years ago. "I also don't watch the news much, instead focusing on my direct interactions with people.

Before the game Monday with Golden State, 76ers coach Brett Brown suggested that the feared Warriors were actually a good measuring stick for his team. He didn't mean that the Sixers could measure up to the Western Conference's top team; Brown was comparing his squad now to the last time it played Golden State. That would be Dec. 30, a 126-86 Warriors whitewash in Oakland. There was another Sixers loss this time around, but they were much more competitive. Even with the all-star backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson having an off-night, the Warriors earned an 89-84 win over the Sixers at the Wells Fargo Center.

BIG NUMBERS are a common occurrence when you talk about the Golden State Warriors. They lead the NBA at 111 points a game and have had two players (Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry) score more than 50 in a game. The big number last night at the Wells Fargo Center was provided by the 76ers, however, and it wasn't a good one. The Sixers' terrific defensive performance was overshadowed by the 27 turnovers committed, which was a huge reason for the team's 89-84 loss to the Warriors, who improved to 41-9.

The NBA's most exciting team will come to town Monday for its only appearance of the year, a squad that scores big, defends hard, and has two all-star guards simply playing out of their minds. One more thing: The Golden State Warriors will arrive for the game at the Wells Fargo Center against the 76ers not in the best of moods. The Warriors (40-9) have the best record in the stacked Western Conference and are in the running to win the franchise's first NBA title since 1975. Yet, after a 106-92 win Saturday over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, the team's fourth game in five days, there was no gloating in the Warriors locker room.

BY DAY, rhythm guitarist Mike Ellis and drummer Nikki Shannon, friends for 24 of their 48 years, rehab homes they've bought in Ellis' native West Philadelphia, then sell them and rehab some more. By night, they morph into Crown of Earth, playing wall-shaking anthems with bandmates Chris Graziola (lead guitar), Danny Knight (vocals) and Marky Z (bass), including "Born Again Warrior," their tribute to veterans that comes straight from their heavy-metal hearts. Ellis said that as a kid, he spent two weeks every summer with a great-uncle who'd survived the 1942 Bataan Death March and three years in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp before being liberated on V-J Day in 1945.

YOU'VE HEARD the term "costly turnover"? For Warriors point guard Steph Curry, it's a reality. According to the San Francisco Chronicle , Curry's mom, Sonya, allows him three turnovers per game. After that, he pays $100 for each miscue. "It's a win-win for me," Curry told the Chronicle . "I take care of mom, and I have a lot less turnovers. " So far this season, he's averaging a career low 2.1 per game. High hopes I Seahawks running back Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch has friends in "high" places.

OAKLAND, Calif. – The 76ers were focused on improving their perimeter defense. They also should have concentrated on limiting their turnovers. That - not three-point defense - was their glaring Achillies' heel Tuesday night against the Golden State Warriors. The Sixers committed 28 giveaways in a 126-86 loss at Oracle Arena. The Warriors (25-5) scored 43 points off the visitors' turnovers. Eleven of the Sixers' turnovers were committed in the first quarter. The Warriors did make 12 of 28 three-pointers and blocked 11 Sixers' shots.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Steve Kerr is flourishing as a rookie head coach. At 25-5, the Golden State Warriors are off to the best start in franchise history. They also have the NBA's best record, a first since finishing the 1975-76 season with a 59-23 mark. Sixers coach Brett Brown has taken note of the phenomenal job his friend is doing. Brown was an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs during Kerr's stints there in the late 1990s and early 2000s. "I think he's taken this group that's had a heck of a run, the past few years anyways, and inherited something and didn't let it go," said Brown, acknowledging that Golden State averaged 49 wins the last two seasons.

OAKLAND - When Brett Brown looked down the floor last night at Oracle Arena, he saw a former student of his during his assistant coaching days in San Antonio. One of Brown's favorite stories is about how Steve Kerr, now coach of the Golden State Warriors, came off the bench and helped the Spurs win a Western Conference final series against the Dallas Mavericks in 2003. The Spurs won the NBA title over the New Jersey Nets in six games. He was also looking at a coach who inherited a dynamic team and had already put together 24 wins in 29 games.
