Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Philadelphia coach Larry Brown left midway through the second quarter with an upset stomach. In the third quarter, the 76ers gave the Atlanta Hawks a similar feeling.

The 76ers limited the Hawks to one basket in the third period and roared to a 107-89 victory, their fourth in a row and ninth in 11 games.

Allen Iverson scored 25 points in just over three quarters and Larry Hughes added 18 for Philadelphia, which already had taken the lead for good when Brown departed with what later was diagnosed as the flu. Assistant John Calipari improved to 2-1 when taking over for Brown.

"It was hard sitting in there. I was sweating it out," Brown joked. "Seriously, I thought we really played unselfishly right from the beginning -- that was the key."

Leading 56-49 at halftime, the Sixers smothered the Hawks in the third quarter, holding them to 1-of-19 shooting and building an 87-61 lead. Atlanta's only basket was a jumper by Bimbo Coles at the 9:08 mark.

"That was embarrassing," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "We missed some shots we should have made, but there is no reason not to get back on defense. We missed some good shots, and then we started taking bad ones. That was just unacceptable."

Iverson, the NBA's scoring leader, made 11-of-24 shots as he was held under 30 points for the first time in nine games. Hughes, the subject of a rumored trade with Miami, made 7-of-12 shots and grabbed eight rebounds.

"It's important to him to show what he can do when he gets the opportunity," Brown said.

"It's not difficult for me," Hughes said of the rumors. "I'm a basketball player and my representatives and the guys that represent this team handle the business part. The game is a business and I'm a basketball player.

"I'd be disappointed to be moved at any point. ... This is the team I came in with and these are the guys I came in with. I don't know any other players like I know the players in here. It would be tough if it happens."

Iverson is in a difficult spot. He plays in front of Hughes at shooting guard but is good friends with the second-year swingman who has had a silent battle with Brown over playing time.

"I feel Larry's going to be here with this team," Iverson said. "Why wouldn't they tell me if something was going to happen? No one has said anything to me, so I feel like he's going to be on this team and he shouldd be on this team. It would be tough on me because that's my friend."

Theo Ratliff scored 12 points, Tyrone Hill collected 10 and 13 rebounds and Eric Snow added 10 and nine assists for the Sixers. Philadelphia shot 49 percent (41-of-83) and held a 53-41 reboundindg edge as it beat the Hawks for the second time in four days.

Alan Henderson scored 22 points and Isaiah Rider added 17 for the Hawks, who shot just 34 percent (29-of-85). Atlanta has lost 15 of its last 19 overall and eight of nine on the road.

"We used to accidentally win 50 games and were always in the playoffs," Henderson said. "This is very frustrating. We're just trying to salvage the season and make a run for the playoffs."

The Hawks never got closer than their 58-49 halftime deficit. They trailed 63-53 after a free throw by Henderson with 7:19 to play in the third quarter but already were mired in a funk that saw them miss their last 15 shots of the period.

A jumper by Matt Gieger triggered a 23-4 burst for Philadelphia over the next seven minutes. Iverson scored eight points and Geiger five of his nine during the run, which Iverson capped at 87-59 with a fast-break layup with 14 seconds to go.

"We did what we were supposed to do," Iverson said. "We didn't take this team for granted. We played them the way we should play any team, regardless of record."

Atlanta got no closer than the final margin. With its starters on the bench, Philadelphia took its largest lead at 105-75 on a dunk by rookie Todd MacCulloch with 4:08 to play.

Jimmy Jackson scored 11 of his 17 points in the first quarter, keeping Atlanta within 30-27.

Hughes scored eight points in the first four minutes of the second quarter, including a layup to trigger a 9-2 burst that gave Philadelphia a 48-36 lead with 5:51 remaining. After the Hawks cut the deficit to five points, Hughes had a runner and two free throws to rebuild the halftime bulge to nine points.

"He was great," Brown said. "At one point I looked up and he had 10 or 12 points with almost no minutes."
