Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Hours after receiving Player of the Month honors for February, Allen Iverson got an early jump on the award for March.

Iverson scored 25 of his 38 points in the decisive first half as the Philadelphia 76ers raced to their fifth straight victory, a 104-89 rout of the woeful Washington Wizards.

Iverson dissected Rod Strickland, scoring at will while dealing the Wizards' star guard three quick early fouls. His quickness set the tone as the 76ers repeatedly were first to rebounds and loose balls.

"He just got into foul trouble, that's all," Iverson said. "He's my favorite point guard in the whole league. I love watching Rod play, but he got into foul trouble."

"He basically did anything he wanted to do," Wizards All-Star guard Mitch Richmond said. "We knew we had to stop him. We knew he was the only guy that was going to give us problems and we didn't meet up to the challenge."

The NBA's leading scorer, Iverson shot 13-of-24 from the field and made 11-of-14 free throws. Earlier today, he became the first Sixer in 10 years to receive the NBA's monthly award, guiding Philadelphia to its first winning month in five years.

It was a homecoming of sorts for Iverson. He grew up in Hampton, Virginia and played collegiately at Georgetown, which has shared a home court with the Wizards for several years.

"I think he's still the same Iverson but his confidence is growing," Richmond said. "He's playing the best of anybody in this short season. He's a young guy and he is full of energy. With the short season, he may be averaging 50 next year. His confidence is flowing right now and he has the green light. It doesn't matter where he shoots it from. He feels it's going to go in."

Matt Geiger scored 18 points and rookie Larry Hughes added 13 for the Sixers, whose winning streak is their longest since a five-game run from January 18-25, 1992.

At 5-1, surprising Philadelphia has the best road record in the NBA. Its overall 9-5 mark has the club four games over .500 for the first time since November 1991.

Juwan Howard scored 21 points for the Wizards, who were without flu-ridden coach Bernie Bickerstaff and lost their fourth straight game. Assistant Jim Brovelli guided the team, which heard boos from the home crowd throughout the second half.

Strickland finished with eight points and eight assists, making 3-of-9 shots. One of the quickest players in the game, he was no match for Iverson.

"I'm trying as hard as I can to get better on defense," Iverson said. "I have a long way to go but I'm trying."

The Sixers trailed 12-9 before Geiger scored eight points and Iverson five in a 13-2 run that gave them the lead for good. Philadelphia led 29-20 after one quarter as Iverson scored 11 while sending Strickland to the bench.

Hughes had four points and Iverson three in an 11-3 burst early in the second quarter. Two free throws by rookie Nazr Mohammed capped the run and gave the Sixers a 40-23 lead with 7:42 left.

"We're not playing well," Strickland said. "We're not getting it done. We just have to keep playing, that's the only thing you can do."

Iverson scored 14 points in the period, but Strickland returned and helped Washington cut the deficit to 54-42 at halftime. The Wizards continued to rally in the third period and closed to 57-50 on a jumper by Strickland with 7:56 remaining.

However, the Sixers recovered and shot 61 percent (11-of-18) with just one turnover in the period. After Washington cut it to seven points, Iverson scored seven points and Philadelphia rebuilt its lead to 80-66 entering the final period.

The Sixers' largest lead came at 93-74 with 7:01 to play on a slam by George Lynch, who had 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Mohammed contributed eight points for the Sixers, who shot 51 percent (42-of-83) and held a 44-33 rebounding advantage.

Otis Thorpe scored a season-high 19 points and Mitch Richmond added 17 for the Wizards, who shot 46.5 percent (33-of-71) but had 17 turnovers, including five by Richmond, who made just 4-of-15 shots.

"We're in a rut right now," Thorpe said. "We have to come together and pick ourselves up. We need to just take it one step at a time."
