GAME RECAP

Allen Iverson scored nine of his 26 points in the fourth quarter as the Philadelphia 76ers notched their first victory of the season and their first win in Houston in nearly nine years, 114-100 over the Rockets.

Iverson, who also handed out 15 assists, hit a 10-foot jumper to cap a 15-2 run that gave the 76ers a 99-92 lead with 6:15 to play. The Rockets cut the deficit to 101-97, but Iverson drained a three-pointer with 3:48 remaining and Houston got no closer than seven the rest of the way.

"We executed at the end, whereas previous games we didn't do that," said Iverson, who committed no turnovers. "This is a confidence boost for us. We played with control when we got the lead in the fourth quarter and we played solid defense all game long."

Jerry Stackhouse scored 17 points and Terry Cummings added a season-high 16 in 17 minutes off the bench for Philadelphia (1-5), which ended an eight-game slide in Houston, winning there for the first time since January 7th, 1989. Larry Brown notched his first victory as coach of the Sixers, who shot 62 percent (49-of-79) from the field.

"We played as well as we could possibly play," Brown said. "Everybody just played great. This is huge to beat a great team like Houston on their home court."

"We're getting better," Cummings said. "The last few games, we were in it with about five or six minutes to go and let it get away. Tonight, we executed at the end."

Clyde Drexler scored 23 points and Charles Barkley added 19 for Houston (3-3), which had won the last 11 meetings with Philadelphia. Olajuwon chipped in 14 points and 15 rebounds but made just 6-of-19 shots as Houston shot just 44 percent (36-of-81).

"This was an embarrassing loss," Olajuwon said. "They played well and made some tough shots, but we also missed some easy baskets. The good news is that it's very early, and we have the opportunity to recover."

Sixers rookie forward Tim Thomas suffered a bruised tailbone in the first quarter on a drive to the basket when he was knocked to the floor by Rockets guard Matt Maloney. Thomas, whose head and lower body were immobilized, was motionless for 10 minutes before he was taken off on a stretcher. X-rays were negative and he is expected to fly with the team to Dallas for Thursday's game.

Houston owned a 90-84 edge on a dunk by Kevin Willis with 10:42 to play. But Philadelphia's Clarence Weatherspoon, who scored 14 points, sank a 15-foot jumper 17 seconds later to spark the 15-2 burst. The 76ers outscored the Rockets in the final period, 32-14.

"You can't give up 32 fourth-quarter points and expect to win," Barkley said. "We just couldn't get over the hump. We've got to play better defense."

Weatherspoon made 6-of-8 shots and Cummings was 7-of-8 for the Sixers, who lost their first five games of the season by an average of 10.8 points. Jim Jackson scored 15 points and Derrick Coleman finished with 14 and eight boards as Philadelphia beat the Rockets for the first time since January 8th, 1992.

"When you give up 62 percent shooting at home, that's not winning basketball," said Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich. "You've got to be a defensive team to win in this league. We just didn't do it."

The Rockets are at .500 for the first time since they were 16-16 on January 12th, 1993. The last time they were at .500 in November was 1992, Tomjanovich's first season as Houston coach.

The game was tight throug the first three quarters, with neither team able to gain a double-digit lead.

Drexler, who had seven assists and six rebounds, scored 11 points in the third period to help Houston to an 86-82 edge heading into the final period. But Drexler was held to three points in the fourth as the Rockets dropped their second straight home game.

"This is very disappointing. We have a very good team, but we're not playing well," he said. "This team has to learn to smell the blood and put them away."

Barkley, a former Sixer, pulled down nine boards as Houston outrebounded Philadelphia, 40-32.
