Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Overtime hardly helped Allen Iverson's bid for the scoring title, but it did help the Philadelphia 76ers wrap up sixth place in the Eastern Conference.

Iverson scored 33 points, including a rainbow jumper with eight seconds left that forced overtime, and the 76ers scored the last eight points in a 105-100 victory over the Detroit Pistons, who had a six-game winning streak snapped.

Iverson scored only two points in the extra session, a pair of clinching free throws with 28 seconds to go. He gleefully dribbled out the clock instead of adding to his total, leaving him with a final average of 26.75.

"I felt like when you just get your driver's license and you get a brand new car to drive," Iverson said. "I felt great and the crowd being into it the way they were, it was like a gift to the people that supported us all year long. Now we can give something back."

Los Angeles Lakers center Shaquille O'Neal needed 40 points tonight against Portland to surpass Iverson, but managed just 18, making Iverson the first 76er since Wilt Chamberlain in 1965-66 to win the crown.

"I don't want to send a message that I was doing all the scoring for the title," said Iverson, who led the league in shots. "I did all that to help my team win. I'm the scorer on the team; that's why I shoot the ball as much as I do."

"Everyone in this room should be excited if he wins the scoring title," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "My thoughts and hopes coming into tonight were that we would play well, get the victory and that Allen would win the scoring title without us having to do anything outside or our normal game."

With his mother a frequent fan at the First Union Center and his biggest supporter, Iverson has heard chants of "MVP, MVP" along with the chance to lead the league in scoring.

"A championship ring, that's the most important thing to me," Iverson said. "Not MVP or the scoring title. I'd rather have a championship."

The 76ers allowed 100 points for only the seventh time this year but no more, holding the Pistons scoreless over the final 2:44. Inside baskets by Matt Geiger, Tyrone Hill and rookie Larry Hughes in an 85-second span turned a three-point deficit into a 103-100 lead with 41 seconds left.

In the playoffs for the first time since 1991, Philadelphia (28-22) finished sixth in the East and will face third-seeded Orlando in the first round. The Sixers were 2-1 against the Magic this season, with each team winning at home.

"We can't just say `We've had success against Orlando' and just go through the motions," Sixers guard Aaron McKie said. "We have to go out there and play hard."

Iverson shot just 11-of-28 and had plenty of help. Hill had 21 points and nine rebounds, Geiger added 20, 16 and eight assists and Eric Snow had a career-high 20 points and 10 assists. The Sixers went 3-1 against the Pistons this season.

Grant Hill scored 27 points for Detroit (29-21), which finished fifth in the East and will face Atlanta in the opening round. The Pistons went 2-1 against the Hawks.

"We're confident going into the playoffs," Pistons coach Alvin Gentry said. "It's a tough matchup with Atlanta. They're a very good basketball team."

"If we play good basektball, we've got a shot to beat them," said Hill, who has yet to win a playoff series in his five-year career.

Former Sixer Jerry Stackhouse scored 21 points for Detroit, including two free throws with 20 seconds left in regulation that appeared to seal it at 93-89.

Stackhouse taunted the crowd after making the foul shots but was victimized seconds later. After a layup by Snow, Stackhouse was mugged by McKie, who stole the ball and fed Iverson for his rainbow 15-footer from the left side.

Hill missed a jumper at the buzzer but scored Detroit's first five points of overtime. Snow made a banker before a layup by Lindsey Hunter provided the Pistons with a 100-97 lead with 2:44 left. However, Philadelphia roared to its eighth straight home win, its longest streak since 1990.

The Sixers started slowly for the second straight game and fell behind 32-19 after one quarter as Hill scored 12 points. They trailed 40-29 midway through the second period before Iverson got hot, scoring eight straight points, including his fourth four-point play of the season. He had 12 points in the quarter.

The Pistons led 49-46 at halftime and built the advantage to as much as 12 in the third quarter before settling for a 72-67 edge entering the fourth period. The Sixers went ahead 77-76 on two free throws by Hughes with 7:43 to go and the game was tight thereafter.

Hughes scored nine points for Philadelphia, which shot just 42 percent (41-of-98) from the field but held a 48-37 rebounding advantage, made 20-of-23 free throws and forced 20 turnovers. The Sixers improved to 3-3 in overtime.

Hunter had 18 points and nine assists and Jerome Williams added 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Pistons, who shot 47 percent (36-of-76) and made 25-of-31 free throws.
