GAME RECAP

Dana Barros had 27 points, nine rebounds and nine assists as the Boston Celtics got a big boost from their bench in a 108-90 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers that snapped a six-game losing streak.

The 5-9 Barros narrowly missed his first career triple-double and was part of a bench that outscored its Philadelphia counterparts, 42-8. He learned of an aunt's death on Saturday and nearly chose not to play, but he was 9-of-13 from the field, including four three-pointers.

"I felt real groggy today, like being on the court wasn't real," Barros said. "It was tough playing, but it was good to play because I just went about my business. I didn't think about the number."

Barros was pressed into heavy duty at point guard when Kenny Anderson, who started despite tendinitis in his left knee, played just four minutes.

"We have to work extraordinarily hard to win a game with a guy like Kenny out," Celtics coach Rick Pitino said. "I thought Dana showed great courage becuase he had a death in the family, someone very close to him. He showed up yesterday for practice very distraught. I'm sure he had a lot on his mind. Dana gave a lot to the team tonight with a heavy weight on his heart."

Antoine Walker scored 25 points and Ron Mercer added 24 for the Celtics, who forced 22 turnovers and have beaten the 76ers four straight times.

Travis Knight also came off the bench and contributed 10 points and six rebounds. No one on Philadelphia's bench scored more than two points.

Theo Ratliff scored a career-high 27 points and pulled down 11 rebounds for the Sixers, who have dropped two in a row after winning four of five. Philadelphia again was without forward Joe Smith, who has an abdominal strain.

"We stayed in the game until the very end, but their style of play was too much," Ratliff said. "The pressure was too much to handle for our guards."

In the teams' last meeting in Boston, Sixers guard Allen Iverson was suspended for missing a practice and the Celtics roared to a 100-83 win, forcing 29 turnovers. Iverson scored 21 points and did a satisfactory job against Boston's press, but also had to guard Barros, who was trying to tire out his foe.

"It was different this time around. They had Iverson," Mercer said. "They were able to handle our press differently. But the difference was Dana. Dana really wore him down and that's when we picked up the tempo, when (Iverson) was out of the game."

"I just tried to attack Iverson and wear him down a little bit offensively," Barros said. "I got into a groove but I wasn't aware of the numbers I was putting up."

Boston took the lead for good at 22-20 on a jumper by Knight with 2:51 left in the first quarter. The Celtics led 33-26 after one quarter behind eight points from Walker and seven by Barros.

A dunk by Ratliff cut the deficit to 35-32 with 9:22 to play in the second quarter, but the Celtics rattled off eight straight points. Barros made a runner, Andrew DeClercq threw in a hook, Barros had a steal and two free throws and Mercer added a layup to make it 43-32 with 5:54 remaining.

Ratliff scored 15 points and Iverson 14 in the first half, which ended with the Sixers trailing, 53-48. In the third quarter, Barros scored nine points and Walker eight as Boston extended the lead to 83-72 entering the final 12 minutes.

A jumper by Walter McCarty gave Boston a 94-78 lead with 8:06 to go. Iverson's jumper capped an 8-0 burst that cut the deficit in half, but a jumper by Barros triggered a 14-2 run that sealed the win.

"Dana is capable of breaking out at any time," Walker said. "Today's win was real important because we had that losing streak going and we've got Chicago (Monday) night."

McCarty had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Celtics, who shot 52 percent (41-of-79) from the field and held a 42-38 rebounding advantage.

Tim Thomas scored 16 points and Scott Williams added 14 for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (32-of-72) and forced 17 turnovers.
