GAME RECAP

Derrick Coleman scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Philadelphia 76ers matched their longest home winning streak in five seasons with a 98-87 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, who had a four-game winning streak snapped.

Working primarily against 7-3 Arvydas Sabonis, Coleman scored eight straight Philadelphia points in a two-minute span down the stretch and blocked Sabonis which led to a slam. He added 10 rebounds.

"I was taking advantage of the opportunity," Coleman said. "The guys were really looking to get me the ball and I just pulled up and took the shot."

Allen Iverson added 22 points, six assists, five steals and no turnovers for the resurgent 76ers, who have won five of six overall and five straight at home for the first time since the 1992-93 season, when they won six in a row from December 21st-January 18th.

"That's the first thing I look at when the game's over, my turnovers. I want to keep them down," said Iverson, who had his third error-free game of the season. "It's important to me to keep them down because when my turnovers are down, our turnovers are down as a team and I think that help us be successful on offense tonight."

Sabonis had 30 points and 12 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who had won the first two games of their five-game road trip.

The Sixers led by three points entering the fourth quarter and Eric Snow doubled the advantage when he opened the period with a three-point play, giving Philadelphia a 71-65 edge.

A three-pointer by Sabonis cut the deficit to 82-78 with 5:21 to play, but Coleman took control after Philadelphia native and Blazers forward Rasheed Wallace was ejected. With his mother in attendance, Wallace was called for a loose-ball foul and made a motion as if he were going to throw the ball at referee Terry Durham, drawing his second technical foul and an ejection with 4:42 to go.

"I don't want to talk about it," Wallace said. "Last time I got thrown out of the game I got fined and this would just make it worse. So I don't want to talk about it."

"Emotionally, we let ourselves get taken out of the game and that's something we've got to work on and get under control," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "It's happened too much with us and till we make that commitment we're not going to take it to another level."

Jimmy Jackson made the technical and Coleman sank 1-of-2 free throws to make it 84-78. Coleman again split a pair of foul shots with 4:34 left before blocking Sabonis' jumper and taking the loose ball the length of the court for a dunk and an 87-78 advantage with 4:14 remaining.

After a dunk by Sabonis, Coleman made two more free throws and a jumper to push the lead to 91-80 with 2:57 to play.

"We stepped it up on defense and concentrated on getting better shots down the offensive end we took our time, worked the ball into DC and looked to see what we could get out of that," Iverson said. "DC played a great ballgame tonight, especially on the defensive end. In the clutch he had some big baskets."

Jackson scored 12 points and rookie Tim Thomas added 10 for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (34-of-77) from the field and gained a split of the season series. Coleman was serving a two-game suspension for fighting when the Sixers suffered a 96-86 loss at Portland on December 30th.

"We're maturing a lot because we have some veteran players on the team to help us deal with the pressures," Iverson said. "Sometimes when I'm trying to do everything so fast, one of the veteran players comes to me and says, `Slow it down and relax.' That's what I'm trying to do out there, relax and let it come to me."

Isaiah Rider scored 18 points and Wallace collected 12 and 11 rebounds for the Blazers, who shot 41 percent (29-of-71) but committed 22 turnovers. Portland held a 43-40 edge on the glass.

"We battled back but we just couldn't get over the hump," Rider said. "We got it down to four and then they got it back up to eight or nine and we just didn't have enough time at the end. Sometimes it's OK to get upset at the refs but you've got to hold your head, especially at the crucial time of the game."

A free throw by Wallace gave Portland a 20-15 lead with 3:03 to go in the first quarter but Philadelphia closed the period with a 10-3 spurt, including four points each by Thomas and Clarence Weatherspoon.

The Blazers forged three ties in the second quarter, the last at 32-32 with 5:36 left on two free throws by Sabonis. But the Sixers again finished strong, closing with a 13-3 spurt in which they held Portland scoreless for the final 3:28. Coleman scored four points and Iverson added a three-point play as Philadelphia opened a 45-35 halftime lead.

"If you looked at us early in the year we couldn't score because we never created anything off our defense. There were gangs of games where we didn't get any stops," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "Now we've got confidence that we can stop people. We had 15 points off fast breaks in the first half. There were games we didn't get 10 or 12 points off the break the whole night. I think now they know that if they defend, we have a chance to win the game."

Another three-point play by Iverson gave the Sixers a 53-42 lead with 8:36 left in the third quarter. But Rider scored 13 points in the period, including a layup with 1:01 to go that capped an 11-3 run and put Portland ahead, 65-64. Two free throws by Jackson and a drive by Thomas closed the quarter and gave the Sixers a 68-65 advantage.

"I don't want to take anything from them but I was real disappointed with our team," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We played uninspired and soft in the first half. We came out in the second half and played with more desire to get us back into the game and then we self-destruct."
