Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The second time around, the Philadelphia 76ers did just fine without Allen Iverson.

Aaron McKie scored 23 points and Tyrone Hill added 22 -- both season highs -- as the 76ers snapped a four-game home losing streak with their biggest win of the season, a 106-83 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The 76ers again were without Iverson, the NBA's leading scorer who is out at least three weeks with a broken right thumb. In its first game without the electric guard, Philadelphia suffered a 101-93 home loss to lowly Washington.

The Sixers also were missing forward Theo Ratliff, who sat out with a sore ankle. But McKie and Hill more than picked up the slack as Philadelphia posted its second-highest total of the season.

McKie, Iverson's best friend on the team, fell one point shy of a career high, repeatedly knocking down long jumpers. Hill, who began the season on the injured list, victimized his former team with 9-of-15 shooting and helped limit Shawn Kemp to 11 points.

"When Allen is in, most of our offense runs through him and we feed off that," said McKie, who made 7-of-18 shots. "With Allen out, we have to get all the guys involved in the offense. We know here what the guys can do. It was just a matter of them getting the minutes to go out and prove it."

Larry Hughes scored 18 points and Eric Snow added 13 for the Sixers, who have won three of their last four meetings with the Cavaliers after losing 26 of the previous 28.

Lamond Murray and Bob Sura scored 15 points each for Cleveland, which fell to 1-4 on the road.

"You can't go in thinking you have an automatic win," said Kemp, who attempted just seven shots. "It's amazing how your confidence can rise and you forget what you did to get you where you are. Tonight was a prime example. What you saw was a team that had nothing to lose. They had guys taking advantage of minutes they don't normally get and it was a good night for them."

Hill started quickly and his third basket triggered a 10-1 run that gave Philadelphia the lead for good midway through the first quarter. McKie's 17-footer extended the margin to 30-20 before the Sixers settled for a 30-24 lead after one quarter.

Hill stayed hot in the second quarter, scoring 11 points as the Sixers built the lead as big as 17 points. A 20-foot runner by Snow at the buzzer gave Philadelphia a 61-45 advantage.

"Right now, I'm just trying ot get as healthy as I can and help get the team as many wins as possible until all our guys come back," Hill said. "This shows you what kind of heart our team has and how we can't use injuries as an excuse."

Cleveland never got within single digits thereafter. The Cavs closed to 11 points before Hughes made a free throw and 3-pointer and Hill dunked to rebuild the lead to 70-53 with 7:43 left in the third quarter.

A jumper by Brevin Knight, who had 10 points and 11 assists, kept Cleveland within 89-72 with 8:49 to go but McKie sealed it with consecutive 3-pointers that pushed the lead to 23 points.

Philadelphia shot 44 percent (36-of-82) from the field and held Cleveland to 42 percent (30-of-71). The Sixers were 30-of-41 from the line while the Cavs were just 19-of-28.

"Until we learn to play the same way every day, it's going to be a rollercoaster ride," Cavs coach Randy Wittman said. "You have to play with the same intensity, no matter who it is. We came out and just went through the motions. We thought the game would come to us and we coasted right from the jump ball."
