Marreese Speights scored a career-high 32 points to hand his former a team a near-record setback, leading the Golden State Warriors past the Philadelphia 76ers 123-80 on Monday night.

After losing 123-78 at the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night in a game they trailed by 56 points in the third quarter, Philadelphia figured it couldn't get much worse.

It almost did.

Speights finished 12-of-15 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds, and Stephen Curry added 23 points and eight assists to help the Warriors go ahead by 49 points in the fourth quarter.

Philadelphia nearly matched the Detroit Pistons' mark for the largest total margin of defeat in consecutive games. The Pistons lost by 95 points combined in back-to-back games in November 1966, according to STATS.
