Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Eric Snow had watched Allen Iverson and Stephon Marbury trade misses long enough before taking matters into his own hands.

Snow made a driving layup with 1:19 remaining to lift the Philadelphia 76ers to a 96-92 victory over the New Jersey Nets and into eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

Often overlooked as Iverson's backcourt mate, Snow collected 10 points and eight assists. He had more baskets in the second half than Iverson, who scored 23 points but shot just 1-of-10 from the field in the second half.

"They double-team Allen, so someone else has to make plays," Snow said.

"Eric Snow made a big drive when we needed it," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "They're doubling Allen so much. I thought Allen got tired. If Allen's gonna give it up, we have to have other guys who at least want to shoot it."

Marbury had 18 points and 12 assists. He made 1-of-2 free throws to cut the deficit to 91-87 with 2:47 remaining but forced a shot on a drive. Iverson and Marbury traded misses before Snow's layup gave Philadelphia a 93-87 lead.

New Jersey made one meaningless basket in the final 4:56 and had its season-high four-game winning streak snapped. Keith Van Horn scored 28 points for the Nets, who dropped to 0-2 against the Sixers this season.

Iverson and Marbury traded jumpers midway through the period, leaving the Sixers with an 87-84 lead, and it looked like the duel was on. But it never materialized as the two took bad shots, missed free throws and threw away the ball down the stretch.

After Snow's layup, Marbury made two free throws and Iverson committed a turnover. But Marbury missed a spinning layup with 37 seconds left and Aaron McKie sealed it with two free throws.

"Those guys are both competitors and both make plays," Snow said. "They want to make great plays and put up numbers but if you ask both of them, they'll tell you that they want to win."

Iverson scooted out of the locker room to hang out with some friends while signing autographs. Marbury explained what he did to somewhat slow the NBA's scoring leader.

"You gotta hit him and keep hitting him and wear him down, because you know he's gonna keep shooting," Marbury said. "I think I did a good job of fighting through the picks."

The Sixers took the lead for good at 77-75 with 10:48 to go on a jumper by Theo Ratliff, who had 19 points and nine rebounds. Matt Geiger followed with three straight baskets for Philadelphia, extending the margin to 83-77 with 7:57 remaining.

Geiger scored 14 points and rookie Larry Hughes added 12 and 10 rebounds for the Sixers (18-16), who moved past New York and Cleveland into the final playoff spot in the East. Despite Iverson's poor shooting, Philadelphia shot 49 percent (38-of-78) from the field and held a 47-36 rebounding edge.

"A month ago we probably would have lost this game," Brown said. "We were able to hang in and execute without Allen."

Kerry Kittles scored 17 points for the Nets (9-25), who shot 43 percent (35-of-82). Former Sixer Jamie Feick grabbed 10 rebounds.

"They shot well and beat us off the boards," Nets interim coach Don Casey said. "We did as good a job on Allen as we could. We battled back, but that's a pretty damn good team. Their record is misleading."

The Sixers committed four turnovers in the first four minutes and the Nets jumped to a 10-4 lead. Kittles and Van Horn scored 10 points apiece in the first quarter, which ended with New Jersey holding a 26-22 lead.

Iverson scored 11 points in the second quarter, including five in a 7-0 burst that closed the first half and gave the Sixers a 55-50 lead. Philadelphia opened the third quarter with nine straight points as New Jersey went scoreless for 7:40 across the halves.

Trailing 64-50, the Nets fought back as the Sixers went cold. Philadelphia went more than three minutes without a basket and missed 5-of-6 free throws during that stretch. Marbury's rainbow jumper over Iverson closed the quarter and pulled New Jersey within 73-72.

"We got real careless when we got up 12 or 14," Brown said. "We took some bad shots and missed some free throws. We made it a game."
