Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Rookie Larry Hughes scored seven of his 15 points during a key fourth-quarter run and the Philadelphia 76ers were nearly perfect from the foul line down the stretch in a 104-96 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Hughes snapped a 74-74 tie with a 15-foot jumper and, after a bad pass by Joe Dumars, threw down a dunk with 8:58 to play. The 76ers opened an 87-78 advantage on Aaron McKie's jumper with 6:42 left and went 11-of-12 from the line over the final 74 seconds to preserve the victory.

Allen Iverson scored 28 points, Theo Ratliff had 19 and Eric Snow tied a season high with 10 assists for Philadelphia, which broke a tie with the Pistons and idle Milwaukee to grab sole possession of fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

"Every game we play is a major game, and when you play against teams that are playing for the same opportunity you are, things magnify," said 76ers coach Larry Brown, who was ejected late in the first half after receiving his second technical foul.

"Coach took one for us," said Iverson. "So I said, 'Let's go out and do something about it.' He motivated us big-time. Even more than I ever thought it would. I felt it would be big to get the win with Coach not out there on the floor."

The 76ers have won five of their last six and are five games over the .500 mark (24-19) for the third time this season.

"This puts us in the position to be in the fifth spot as long as we continue to play aggressive," Ratliff said. "Our bench is propelling us over the top. As long as they continue to do that, we can be as good as we want to be."

Dumars netted 19 points, Lindsey Hunter had 17 and Don Reid 13 for Detroit, which has lost eight of its last 11 following a six-game winning streak.

"I think you've got to give them (76ers) all the credit," said Pistons coach Alvin Gentry. "They outplayed us in really every phase of the game. They beat us to every loose ball. They executed the offense and we gave up way to many easy baskets."

Hunter answered Matt Geiger's 14-footer with a short jumper, but Hughes was fouled by Jerry Stackhouse while attempting a 3-pointer and made all three free throws to give the 76ers an 83-76 advantage.

Bison Dele cut into Philadelphia's advantage with two free throws, but Geiger and McKie wrapped jumpers around Stackhouse's turnover, pushing the lead to nine points.

Detroit fought within 87-82 on Reid's layup with 4:35 left, only to watch the 76ers rebuild the margin to nine on buckets by Ratliff and Geiger. Dumars nailed a 3-pointer, but McKie made a 16-footer and Ratliff connected on a pair or free throws, making it 95-85 with 1:14 left and the 76ers were not threatened in the final minute.

Geiger scored 15 points, Snow 13 and McKie 12 to give the 76ers five players in double figures. Ratliff had 13 rebounds and Geiger eight for Philadelphia, which shot 53 percent (39-of-73) but missed all four of its 3-point attempts.

Stackhouse and Grant Hill netted 12 points apiece and Dele and Jerome Williams contributed 10 each for the Pistons, who connected on 44 percent (35-of-79) and held a 40-36 advantage on the boards. Williams had 13 rebounds and Hill seven to go along with six assists.

"They came in here and right from the start they played more desperate than we did," said Hill. "We've just got to find a way to stay together and try and fight threw this. We've been threw tough stretches before. It's not the best of timing, but we've got stay together and fight threw it."

Philadelphia played without forward Tyrone Hill, who was not with the team due to family reasons.
