Game Recap

Allen Iverson scored 26 points and Derrick Coleman added 20 and 15 rebounds as the Philadelphia 76ers completed their best season in six years with a 107-78 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

Iverson also had eight rebounds and six assists for the 76ers, who finished 31-51, their best record since a 35-47 mark in the 1991-92 campaign. Under first-year coach Larry Brown, who made three major trades, the 76ers improved nine games from last season.

"The progress was good but the season was disappointing," said Iverson, who finished the season ninth in scoring and sixth in steals while shooting 46 percent from the field. "I wish we could have made the trades earlier. We only started playing together after the break."

Iverson, who can negotiate a contract extension this summer, made 13-of-21 shots. He scored six points in a 16-6 burst that began the second half and expanded a seven-point halftime lead to 66-49 with 7 1/2 minutes to play in the third quarter.

"I'm looking forward to signing and getting it over with," said Iverson. "I'd like to be a Sixer for a long time. I need that commitment."

Theo Ratliff added 11 points, seven rebounds and five blocks for Philadelphia, which opened its largest lead at 105-73 on two free throws by Kebu Stewart with 1:48 remaining. The Sixers gained a 2-2 split of the season series and evened the all-time series at six wins apiece.

Marcus Camby had his second triple-double in four games for the Raptors, whose awful third NBA season ended with 16 losses in their last 17 games. They finished 16-66, the worst record in the Eastern Conference and a 14-game drop from last season.

Led by point guard Damon Stoudamire and a core of young, solid players, the Raptors won 30 games in 1996-97 and appeared to have a bright future. But this season, general manager Isiah Thomas resigned after a failed ownership bid and conflict with owner Allen Slaight.

Stoudamire was traded, coach Darrell Walker was fired, Slaight sold the team to a group that also owns the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs and players grumbled about the high taxes in Canada. As a result, the Raptors are very close to where they were in 1995, when they entered the league as an expansion team.

"We wanted to go out on a positive note, but that wasn't the case," Camby said. "We're a very young ballclub and we can only get better. This was a hard season. When Isiah left, it really affected the team. Then we traded our franchise player. It was tough to jell with the new players."

"I thought I might break down when Isiah and Damon left," said Raptors teenager Tracy McGrady. "But I pulled through it and feel better for it."

Camby's triple-double was the second of his career, both in the last four games. He had 13 points, 11 rebounds and 10 blocks despite sitting out the fourth quarter and virtually clinched the blocks title, averaging 3.65 in 63 games. He also is eligible for a contract extension during the summer.

"I take a lot of pride in leading the league in blocked shots," Camby said. "It's something that's been downplayed a bit. I'd love to stay here, but they're talking about a lockout, and we'll have to see what happens."

Joe Smith scored 10 points for the Sixers, who shot 45.5 percent (45-of-99) from the field and held a 57-48 rebounding advantage. Rookie Tim Thomas added nine points

"It was everything I thought it would be," Thomas said. "We need everybody to stay together and we should continue to make progress. We've got time."

Doug Christie scored 16 points for the Raptors, who shot under 36 percent (28-of-78) and committed 21 turnovers, leading to 29 Philadelphia points. McGrady, a rookie whose playing time increased when Butch Carter replaced Walker as coach, added nine points and seven rebounds.

"I was frustrated at the beginning of the season," McGrady said. "It was difficult every night, when you face All-Star players. I feel good that I've made improvements, especially in my rebounding. I'm looking forward to having big numbers next year. I matured a lot."

Iverson, Coleman and Smith scored six points apiece in the first quarter as the Sixers raced to a 27-17 lead. Coleman added eight more in the second period, when Philadelphia led by as many as 12 points before settling for a 50-43 advantage.
