Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers made their plays down the stretch and the New Jersey Nets did not.

Allen Iverson scored 34 points as the 76ers continued their recent offensive surge with a 101-96 victory over the Nets, who suffered another disappointing loss.

Iverson, the league's leading scorer at over 31 points per game, once again did not find a shot he did not like as he finished 11-of-28 from the field and 10-of-11 from the foul line.

The Nets closed to 97-96 with 10 seconds left after Stephon Marbury, who scored 31 points, drilled a 3-pointer. Marbury also finished with nine assists.

An 83 percent free throw shooter, Aaron McKie made a pair of foul shots with nine seconds to go to give the Sixers a three-point lead that stood up.

"They're fun," McKie said about his team's close games. "When you're on the winning end, it's fun. When you're losing, it's not too fun."

Following a timeout, the Nets had one last chance to tie but Keith Van Horn, apparently unaware of the three-point deficit, elected to drive to the basket and lost the ball. George Lynch picked up the loose ball and fed Iverson, who sealed the win with a dunk.

"It (the play) was for me to get a quick two or to get it outside," Van Horn explained. "When I got down to the point of making a decision, I became indecisive and the ball slipped out of my hand. I tried to think a little too much instead of playing basketball."

"We always play close games," Iverson said. "Every time we have a chance to put teams away, we have a tendency to let them back in the game. We need to get better at that."

Van Horn finished with 20 points, 14 rebounds and eight turnovers for the Nets, who have lost consecutive games following a three-game winning streak.

Philadelphia won its third straight game and also broke the century mark in points for the sixth straight contest. It is the first time the Sixers have accomplished that feat since the 1992-93 season.

"We had a lot of chances to really jump on it and get a big lead," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "There were a lot of loose balls. We had a lot of opportunities to break out and we couldn't come up with them. But we made the plays at the end of the game."

The Sixers entered the fourth quarter with a six-point advantage and still held a 94-88 lead with 4:27 remaining after Iverson converted a free throw after a technical foul.

Van Horn sank a jumper and pair of free throws before Iverson answered with a 20-footer with 1:33 to play for a 96-92 lead. Marbury hit 1-of-2 from the line to cut it to three, but after a Philadelphia turnover, the Nets point guard was stripped of the ball by McKie.

"As I said to the officials, somehow I feel like if Iverson was going for a layup, there would have been a foul," New Jersey coach Don Casey said. "My guy doesn't get a fould called. That was a huge play.

"This little guy gets the stuff kicked out of him and hardly ever gets to the line. That's a disappointment. I think the league should protect driving players. It's frustrating when the guy you're playing against gets a call and you don't get them."

Marbury also was upset there was no call.

"No comment. I don't want to get fined," he said.

Ratliff made 1-of-2 from the line for the Sixers for a four-point lead. Injured for much of the season, Ratliff had perhaps his best game as he collected 13 points, seven rebnounds and three blocked shots.

Marbury, who finished 11-of-23 from the field, nailed his 3-pointer with 10 seconds to go, cutting it to one, but that was as close as the Nets got.

Lucious Harris had 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter for the Nets, who shot 43 percent (36-of-83) while Philadelphia finished at 40 percent (33-of-83). The Sixers got the job done on the boards, garnering a commanding 51-36 rebounding advantage.

With the game tied, Larry Hughes hit consecutive jumpers to trigger a 10-1 run to close the half that gave the Sixers a 57-48 lead. Iverson was huge in the opening half, collecting 22 points.

The Nets scored the first 11 points of the second half and took their last lead, 59-57, following a 3-pointer by Van Horn with 10:04 left in the third period.
