Game Recap

Sam Mitchell had season highs of 29 points and 11 rebounds and made the go-ahead layup with 50 seconds left as the Minnesota Timberwolves rallied for a 107-102 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, who got a season-high 43 points from Allen Iverson.

Stephon Marbury collected 28 points and eight assists and Kevin Garnett added 26 and 16 rebounds for the Timberwolves (41-36), who set a franchise record for wins. Minnesota, which entered the NBA in 1989 and is headed to the playoffs for the second straight year, was 40-42 last season.

"We had guys -- Mitchell, Marbury and Garnett -- who were big down the stretch," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "It's a credit to these guys that they have the first non-losing season in Timberwolves history."

Mitchell erased Philadelphia's only lead of the fourth quarter when he made a driving left-handed layup for a 101-100 lead. Marbury added a floating scoop layup to extend the lead to three points with 21 seconds left and added two free throws after Philadelphia's Derrick Coleman missed badly on a three-pointer.

"We had a chance to win," 76ers assistant coach Gar Heard said. "They made two layups with the game on the line. Those were two key plays."

Iverson, who had averaged 28 points over his last six games, surpassed his previous season high of 38 against Detroit on March 18th. In his career, Iverson has six 40-point games and the 76ers have lost them all.

"I thought he played well," Heard said. "He was in bed all day with the flu. He's a competitor. Unfortunately, we came up short."

Coleman added 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Sixers, who had won four of their last five games. Philadelphia was swept in the season series for the first time in four years and finished 15-13 against the Western Conference.

Philadelphia coach Larry Brown was ejected with 3:02 remaining in the third quarter after receiving a pair of technical fouls from referee Ted Bernhardt. After getting the first technical, Brown told Bernhardt, "Why don't you just throw me out of the game?" and the referee did.

"I think Larry got thrown out unfairly -- jusst for asking a question," Heard said. "He thought that on a play before that we got fouled, and then we got called for a foul on almost an identical play."

The game featured 16 ties and 17 lead changes. Iverson scored 15 points in the final period, which had five ties and a pair of lead changes. The first came on a 17-footer by Eric Snow that gave Philadelphia a 100-99 edge with 1:03 to play.

"I thought we played them really, really hard in the second half," Saunders said. "In the fourth quarter, we pounced on nearly every loose baall. We made them match up."

Iverson shot 15-of-26 from the field and 12-of-14 from the line. He scored 11 points in the first quarter, but Minnesota grabbed a 26-25 lead behind 10 points from Garnett.

A layup by Scott Williams gave the Sixers their largest lead at 47-39 with 5:19 left in the second quarter, but Mitchell scored six points in the rest of the period as the Timberwolves closed to 55-51 at halftime.

The third quarter was delayed twice by scoreboard malfunctions, first for five minutes at the outset of the period and again briefly about 2 1/2 minutes into the quarter. The referees decided to turn off the scoreboard clocks and keep time on the floor.

"It had to be one of the longest 48-minute games played in this arena," Saunders said. "It was a really difficult game because you could not get into a flow with the clock going out so much, and then everyone got a little edgy and you had technicals being thrown out."

"It was rough out there," Iverson said. "You gotta keep going over to ask the time on the clock, ask what is going on. It kinda throws you out of your rhythm. It seemed like a street game, a game in the park."

Garnett scored five points in a 12-2 run that gave Minnesota a 67-61 lead with 6:29 left in the third quarter. Philadelphia fought back to a 78-78 tie after three periods behind Iverson, who scored 11 points in the quarter.

Terry Porter added 13 points for the Wolves, who shot 48 percent (35-of-73) from the field and made 30-of-41 free throws. They also made 7-of-17 three-pointers.

Williams and Joe Smith scored eight points each for the Sixers, who shot 43 percent (38-of-88) and made 24-of-33 from the line. Philadelphia held a 42-41 rebounding edge but made just 2-of-9 from behind the arc.
