GAME RECAP

Allen Iverson shook off a slow start to score eight of his 12 points in the fourth quarter, including three clutch baskets down the stretch, as the Philadelphia 76ers held on for an 87-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Limited to two points in the first half and another two in the third quarter, Iverson scored on consecutive possessions after the Bucks had cut the deficit to two points with 4:19 remaining. He added a driving layup through the heart of the defense that sealed the win at 83-76 with 45 seconds to go.

"Allen struggled all night but he made some really big plays down the stretch, some big hoops," 76ers coach Larry Brown said.

"It was important for me to keep my head," Iverson said. "I knew that I was having a horrible game but it was important for me to have the confidence to still take shots, even when I couldn't throw a rock in the ocean."

Derrick Coleman had 19 points and 11 rebounds for the 76ers, who allowed just eight points in the third quarter, when they took the lead for good. Joe Smith added 15 points and Theo Ratliff 13 as Philadelphia beat Milwaukee for the first time in three meetings this season.

"I was trying to be aggressive on both ends of the floor, trying to get loose balls and just trying to do whatever I could to help us win," said Smith, who had his best game as a Sixer. "I felt I did a pretty good job at the three (small forward) and the four (power forward) and hopefully we can continue that."

Glenn Robinson scored 21 points before fouling out and Ray Allen added 17 for the Bucks, who had not played since a loss at New York on Thursday and lost for the seventh time in 11 games.

Milwaukee shot just 22 percent (2-of-9) and committed eight turnovers in the third quarter, matching its worst period of the season. It also scored eight points in the fourth quarter of a 109-94 loss at Vancouver on November 15th.

"Our defense was pretty good throughout the course of the game but you can't continue to come up empty at the offensive end," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "That's what we did in the third quarter. ... We had our looks, but they wouldn't drop."

The Bucks led 48-44 at halftime, but the Sixers grabbed the lead for good at 51-50 on a jumper by Ratliff with 4:48 remaining in the third quarter that triggered a 12-5 run.

Coleman made a layup and Iverson sank two free throws before a pair from the line by Robinson cut the deficit to 56-53 with 3:24 left. Smith made a layup and Allen hit a jumper before a free throw by Milwaukee's Tyrone Hill made it 58-56 with 2:18 to go. But Smith added another layup 21 seconds later and a jumper by Scott Williams gave the Sixers a 62-56 edge heading into the fourth quarter.

"Defensively, we're getting better in most areas," Brown said. "We still ssometimes get beat on penetration out front which hurts us. Theo is back there, Derrick is in much better shape so we have another shot-blocker and defensive rebounder. Our backcourt is much better defensively."

"Everybody zoned in on what we're trying to do and that's what we needed because our offense was struggling as well in the third quarter," Coleman said.

A dunk by Smith extended the lead to 66-58, but a layup by Armon Gilliam capped a 9-3 spurt and pulled Milwaukee within 69-67 with 7:40 remaining. A free throw by Hill kept the deficit at 74-72, but Iverson made a layup 14 seconds later, then sank an 11-footer to build the lead to 78-72 with 3:39 left.

Robinson's 20-footer made it 80-76 with 2:24 to go. Ratliff made 1-of-2 from the line and, after several empty possessions, Iverson snaked through the defense for his clinching layup.

"We couldn;t come up with that key stop," Ford said. "Allen got loose on a pick-and-roll and got a couple of offensive rebounds as well."

Aaron McKie had 10 points and a career-high six steals for the Sixers, who shot 42.5 percent (34-of-80) from the field, did not shoot a three-pointer and forced 21 turnovers. Iverson made just 5-of-14 shots and 2-of-7 from the line.

Gilliam scored 14 points and Elliot Perry added 11 for the Bucks, who shot 43 percent (32-of-74) and held a 46-44 edge in rebounds. But Milwaukee was 1-of-10 from three-point range, including an 0-of-6 effort from Allen.

Robinson scored 14 points and Allen added 11 as Milwaukee built a four-point halftime lead. Coleman kept Philadelphia close with 15 points.
