GAME RECAP

Joe Smith scored 27 points to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 93-89 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in a game that featured a frightening injury to Bucks forward Tyrone Hill.

Hill tried to block a shot by Allen Iverson with 4:30 left in the first quarter and had his legs cut from under him. He landed on his head and remained on the court while the game was delayed 12 minutes so he could be removed by a stretcher.

Hill was taken to Elmbrook Memorial Hospital, where X-rays proved negative. Feeling and motion have returned and the 6-9 forward will remain hospitalized for observation.

Iverson finished with 20 points for the 76ers, who have won three straight and five of their last seven games.

"We did some good things, but I give the Bucks a lot of credit," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "They were shorthanded and in a tough situation. I am proud of the team and I'm thrilled with the first back-to-back wins in a long time."

The Bucks were within 62-61 after a 17-footer by Elliot Perry with 5:46 left in the third quarter before the Sixers began to pull away. Six different players scored in a 14-6 run that provided Philadelphia with its largest lead at 76-67 on Brian Shaw's layup with 1:18 remaining in the third.

Philadelphia's lead was 78-71 entering the final period and grew to 84-75 on Shaw's bucket with 7:58 to play. But the Bucks began to chip away behind Armon Gilliam, who played 37 minutes and scored 16 points in Hill's absence. He had back-to-back buckets marks to bring Milwaukee within 85-81 with 5 1/2 minutes left.

Another bucket by Gilliam cut Philadelphia's lead to 89-87 with 1:03 to go. The Bucks had a chance to tie or take the lead when Ray Allen stole the ball from Smith, but Michael Curry missed a three-pointer. Eric Snow got the rebound, was fouled with 15 seconds left and made both foul shots for a four-point lead. Ricky Pierce's three-point attempt was blocked on the other end and Theo Ratliff dunked to salt it away.

"I was disappointed in the loss, but not in the effort," Milwaukee coach Chris Ford said. "All I can ask is for them to go out there and work hard, and they did battle tonight."

"We played a great game," Ratliff said. "I'm just glad we held them off in the end. It was a defensive struggle."

Despite Hill's injury, Milwaukee opened a 27-24 lead after one quarter behind eight points from Allen. The Sixers closed within 51-50 at the break as Iverson and Smith had 12 points apiece.

Tim Thomas finished with 13 points and Shaw had 12 for the Sixers, who shot 49 percent (38-of-77) from the field. Ratliff collected 11 points and 11 rebounds to pace Philadelphia's 41-30 advantage on the boards.

Allen had 23 points and Perry added 21 on 10-of-14 shooting for the Bucks, who made 52 percent (38-of-73) of their field goal attempts. Curry had 18 points and Gilliam contributed 16.
