Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- You could tell Allen Iverson was back. The Philadelphia 76ers lost.

Iverson's anticipated return from a broken right thumb upset the chemistry the team had developed without him and the Charlotte Hornets roared to a 106-84 victory, their fifth straight win.

The defending NBA scoring champion, Iverson was activated from the injured list prior to the game and scored 11 points in 21 minutes, sitting down for good midway through the third quarter. He shot just 5-of-16 from the field and had little positive impact as the 76ers absorbed their worst loss of the season.

"I took a lot of shots this morning (at practice)," said Iverson, who played with his right hand taped. "I came out tonight and had some good looks but they didn't fall. It was frustrating but there was nothing more to it than that."

"This is a process we have to work out," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "We have to figure out a way to get contributions from (Matt) Geiger and help Allen get acclimated and be comfortable with what we're doing."

Philadelphia was 5-7 with Iverson, who suffered the injury on November 24 against San Antonio. Without their superstar, the 76ers went 6-4, relying on a balanced offensive attack and their usual tough defense.

That defense was nowhere to be found against the Hornets, who led 32-16 after one period, 58-39 at halftime and by as many as 32 points in the second half.

"We just got beat bad," Brown said. "I knew it would be tough with Allen and Matt coming back. It doesn't matter who we play against."

Brad Miller scored a season-high 19 points and Ricky Davis added 16 for Charlotte, which notched its 29th win vs. Philadelphia, its most against any team.

"I kept telling the guys they were gonna make a run at us but it didn't happen," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "We carried the game throughout and that's a credit to the guys, they played hard. We're a running team and when we run and convert in transition, we've got a lot of people who can score."

The Hornets were without big men Elden Campbell and Derrick Coleman (flu symptoms) and swingman Bobby Phills (pulled left hamstring) but you could hardly tell. They had six players in double figures and shot 46 percent (43-of-94) from the field.

"When you call yourself a deep team, this is the time to prove it," said Hornets forward Anthony Mason, who scored 15 points. "If you call yourself a deep team, you sustain injuries and keep winning."

Trailing by a point early in the first quarter, Charlotte went on a 21-4 burst to take control for good. David Wesley scored six points and Eddie Jones five before a jumper by Davis opened a 30-14 lead with 1:31 left.

Miller scored eight points in the second quarter. A fast-break dunk by rookie Eddie Robinson built the lead to 55-34 with 1:21 before halftime.

"With the other big guys out, you have to step up your game and be aggressive to the basket," said Miller, who also grabbed 12 rebounds. "That's what I tried to do."

The Hornets ended any comeback ideas the Sixers had by scoring the first 10 points of the third quarter. Mason made two pairs of free throws around a jumper by Jones and Robinson added a jumper and dunk for a 68-39 bulge with 9:13 left.

Charlotte opened its largest lead at 84-52 on two free throws by rookie Baron Davis with 2:28 left. Philadelphia got no closer than 18 points thereafter.

Jones scored 15 points, Robinson added 14 and Wesley 11 and a season-high 13 assists for the Hornets, who scored 24 points on the fast break and forced 20 turnovers.

Aaron McKie scored 16 points for the Sixers, who shot just 37 percent (35-of-89), including 0-of-8 from 3-point range. Iverson was the only starter in double figures and Geiger had just two points in 19 minutes.
