Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- John Calipari knows exactly how New Jersey coach Don Casey feels.

Allen Iverson scored 37 points to make Calipari a winner in his first game on the sidelines against his former team as the Philadelphia 76ers posted a 100-96 victory over the woeful Nets.

Philadelphia coach Larry Brown named Calipari an assistant coach this past offseason. Calipari was the coach of the Nets last season before being fired after the Nets lost 17 of their first 20 games.

Calipari wound up running the Sixers tonight after Brown was ejected with 1:29 left in the first quarter after receiving a pair of technical fouls.

"I don't feel good about putting him (Calipari) in that position," said Brown, who was critical of the Nets ownership for firing Calipari. "But the way it turned out, I'm happy for him. But it's nothing special for him. He likes a lot of people on that team. He went out the right way, never criticized anybody, never blamed anybody."

Iverson, the league's leading scorer at 30.6 points per game, tallied 33 of his points in the first three quarters, helping the Sixers open an 85-70 advantage. The electrifying guard fell three points shy of scoring 40 points in a game for a second time this season.

"It was cool. He (Calipari) coaches us during the game anyway, so we know what to expect," Iverson said. "He did a great job. I think he did an excellent job. You know being the circumstances of him being here in New Jersey. He was the Jersey coach last year. I felt good because we could get the win and step up, where coach got thrown out of the game."

Stephon Marbury scored 22 points and Keith Van Horn had 20 and 13 rebounds for the Nets, who have lost six in a row and nine of their first 10 games this season.

"It just didn't go our way tonight," Marbury said. "We played extremely hard tonight and great defense. I love playing ball and it hurts a lot. I hate losing and you can't even imagine how much I hate it."

The Nets held a one-point advantage early in the second quarter when the league's leading scorer took over. Iverson scored eight straight points to put the Sixers in front, 36-31 with 7:23 left in the half.

Iverson, who connected on 12-of-18 shots in the first half, finished the period with 14 points as the Sixers opened a 55-49 lead. He finished 15-of-32 from the floor.

Philadelphia shot 55 percent (22-of-40) in the opening half, compared to only 40 percent (16-of-40) for the Nets.

The Sixers had their biggest lead of the contest at 85-70 but the Nets got back in the game with a 17-7 surge to start the final quarter.

Once again the Sixers turned to Iverson, who answered with a 3-pointer for an eight-point lead. The Nets continued to battle and pulled within 97-95 with 97 seconds left on Marbury's layup.

Aaron McKie hit a pair of free throws to make it four-point lead before Jim McIlvaine hit a free throw for the Nets with 26 seconds to go. New Jersey elected not to foul until Iverson went up for a layup but the dynamic guard hit a free throw with four seconds to go to seal the game.

Philadelphia shot 49 percent (36-of-74), while the Nets finished at 41 percent (29-of-71).
