Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Red-hot Allen Iverson scored 37 points, including a pair of three-point plays in the final four minutes, as the Philadelphia 76ers held off the Indiana Pacers, 103-97, for their fifth victory in six games.

Iverson made 14-of-31 shots and 8-of-8 free throws as he scored at least 30 points for the 20th time this season. The NBA scoring leader is averaging 34.4 points over his last 15 games, with the 76ers going 11-4 during that stretch.

"He played really well last year but by far the last 12 or 14 games he's played the best he ever has on both ends of the court," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "There's a world of difference in the way he's playing. Like all young guys, it takes some time to mature.

"He has more confidence in the people around him, and that shows. He has respect for them. That's why he's starting to act like a pro. I think I speak for all our coaches when I say we are all proud of what he's done."

Philadelphia saw a 10-point fourth-quarter lead dwindle to 93-91 when Indiana's Sam Perkins made a three-point play with 4:10 remaining. Iverson missed and the Pacers had a chance to tie but Aaron McKie stole a pass and sent in Iverson on a fast break. He was fouled as his layup was goaltended and the free throw made it 96-91 with 3:43 to go.

Jumpers by Dale Davis and Perkins cut the deficit to 96-95 before Iverson struck again. He backed in on the shorter Travis Best and hung in the lane for a jumper while drawing the foul. He added the foul shot for a 99-95 lead with 1:04 to play.

"I knew my teammates were going to come to me (with the ball) and I just tried to get into the lane and jump over him and he fouled me," Iverson said.

"I thought Travis played played him well in the fourth quarter," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "We got a bad call for a three-point play at the end but we played them well. That's all you can ask."

Dale Davis missed a jumper and Iverson found Eric Snow for a floater in the lane that sealed the win with 26 seconds to go.

"They doubled me, Reggie (Miller) came but Eric broke their back, like he's supposed to," Iverson said.

Tyrone Hill had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Matt Geiger added 10 and 11 for the 76ers, who gained a small measure of revenge for last season's playoff sweep at the hands of the Pacers. Led by Iverson, the Sixers had reached the postseason for the first time in eight years but also absorbed the first four-game sweep in franchise history.

"It felt good to get those guys, to send a message," Iverson said. "If we see them in the playoffs again, hopefully it will be different. Still, I approached the game like it was any other game. We all had to."

Miller scored 28 points and Perkins added 16 for the Pacers (26-14), who have dropped three of four overall and three consecutive regular-season meetings with the Sixers (24-17).

"We have an awful lot of respect for them," said Brown, who coached the Pacers for four years before resigning in 1997 and taking over the Sixers. "I don't think they've missed a beat. They were as good as any team in the league last year and they are playing at that kind of level this year."

A dunk by Rik Smits, who scored 14 points, gave the Pacers a 62-58 lead midway through the third quarter before the Sixers went on a 15-2 burst. Iverson triggered it with a 3-pointer and his runner gave Philadelphia the lead for good at 65-64 at the 4:10 mark.

Geiger made back-to-back jumpers before baskets by McKie and Hill pushed the advantage to 73-64 with 55 seconds to go. The Sixers led 75-69 entering the final period and opened an 81-71 bulge on two free throws by Geiger with 9:36 left before the Pacers rallied.

Five players scored eight points apiece for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (36-of-82) and made 30-of-32 free throws.

Rik Smits scored 14 points, Jalen Rose added 13 and Davis 10 and 15 rebounds for the Pacers, who shot 44 percent (36-of-81) and were outrebounded, 48-33.

Miller outscored Iverson 13-10 in the first quarter, helping Indiana to a 27-23 lead. Neither team led by more than four points in the second quarter, when Iverson had 12 points to give Philadelphia a 52-50 halftime edge.
