Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson reached 50 points at the same time Chris Webber reached exhaustion.

Iverson matched his career high and the best total in the NBA this season, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 119-108 victory over the road-weary Sacramento Kings.

One week away from his first All-Star Game, Iverson provided a peek for a national TV audience. The electric 6-1 guard took an astounding 40 shots -- making 20 -- and added nine rebounds and six assists.

"It's nice to see Allen play so well on TV in a game where we were one of the primary games. That was neat," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "I think it has to mean a lot to everybody. There was a time when we were never on. The reason we're on is because we've won some games and Allen is on our team."

"I just played my regular game like I try to play every night," Iverson said. "I play every game like it's my last. I've been taking a lot of shots since I was a little kid. That's what I do. I'm a scorer. You can't be a scorer if you get tired of taking shots."

Brown didn't seem to mind Iverson's shot total, which surpassed his 38 against Milwaukee on January 3 as the most by any player this season.

"It's hard to get 40 shots up against anybody," the coach said. "I thought his shot selection was pretty darn good and he made some big shots. It's nice to have people watch on TV and see he doesn't just shoot the ball.

"If he was taking bad shots, I think it would be a terrible thing but I go in that locker room and I don't see many guys -- they mumble a little bit -- I don't see many guys complaining. His assists have gone up with the number of shots going up. As long as they know he's trying to win the game and his coach runs stuff for him and he gets himself free, it's something they're not opposed to. I'd love other guys to take shots. If you ask him he would say the same thing."

Iverson scored in double figures in every quarter -- equaling Sacramento's total in the third period -- as he tied his previous career high against Cleveland on April 12, 1997. He also matched Phoenix forward Cliff Robinson, who scored a league season-high 50 points against Denver on January 16.

"It's a great accomplishment because not a lot of guys score 50 points," Iverson said. "Just to win makes it that much better. It makes me feel real good. It let's me know that I can score the way I'm capable of scoring and we can win. People feel like when I score a lot of points, it's hard for us to win. It's not. I'm the scorer on this team."

"He was very good," Kings coach Rick Adelman said "He penetrated to the basket pretty much when he wanted to. We didn't do a good job of keeping him in front of us. He had streaks where he made shots but he also got a number of open-court things. That really hurt us. We allowed him to get easy baskets."

Webber was phenomenal. With the Kings playing their eighth road game in 13 days, the All-Star forward had 32 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists. He played every second until fouling out with 1:37 to play.

That foul put Iverson on the line and he made both to reach 50 and give the 76ers a 109-102 lead. He had a steal on the next possession and fed George Lynch for a clinching dunk before exiting to chants of "MVP! MVP!" from the First Union Center crowd.

"It's frustrating," Webber said. "They're a good team, you have to give them credit. They took it from us and they won."

The Sixers never trailed and improved to 3-10 all-time when Iverson scores 40 points or more, including 2-3 this season. He had 40 in a three-point loss at Houston on Thursday.

"It's better when you win," said Iverson, who raised his league-leading scoring average from 30.9 to 31.5. "I've been getting so much flak about me playing a game like it's my last, ending up with 40 and not winning. People looked at it like it's a bad thing, but you have good nights some nights and your team doesn't win.

"When I scored 40, we hadn't won a lot of those games. I play the same way every night. When I scored 40 and we won, what could be said about it then? It's the way it goes. I might sccore five or 10 points and we still win. Is that to say if I don't score, we'll win every night?"

Theo Ratliff had 15 points and 13 rebounds and Eric Snow added 11 and 13 assists for Philadelphia, which has won 10 of its last 12 home games. Snow had four steals and no turnovers and made some big plays in the fourth quarter to stem Sacramento's rally.

Reserves Predrag Stojakovic scored 20 points and Scot Pollard added a season-high 17 for the Kings, who went 3-5 on the longest trip in the NBA this season. With Webber and flashy guard Jason Williams, the league's highest-scoring team was on national TV four times during the trip.

"To be 3-5 on an eight-game road trip is nothing to be proud of or be in a rush to go home," Webber said. "We have to forget about this trip. It's nothing."

The Kings trailed by 15 points entering the final period but pecked away at the deficit. A tough-angle corner jumper by Stojakovic made it 90-81 before Snow answered with a jumper with 8:52 remaining. Pollard's follow slam made it 94-87 but Snow hit another jumper with 7:11 left. Stojakovic sank a 3-pointer to cut the margin to 96-92 and Snow saved a loose ball inbounds to Ratliff, who was fouled and hit free throws with 5:47 to go.

A long 3-pointer by Jon Barry pulled Sacramento within 101-98 with 3:24 left before Iverson responded with a corner jumper 17 seconds later. Webber and Iverson each made 1-of-2 free throws around empty possessions for both teams before Webber fouled out.

Matt Geiger scored 10 points and Tyrone Hill pulled down 14 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 46.5 percent (46-of-99) and held a 57-49 rebounding advantage.

Williams had 14 points and seven assists and Barry scored 11 points off the bench for the Kings, who shot 42 percent (38-of-90), including 10-of-31 from 3-point range. Philadelphia made one 3-pointer.

In the third quarter, Iverson scored 12 points, matching the Kings' total. He also grabbed six rebounds and his only assist set up Geiger's three-point play that gave Philadelphia its biggest lead at 88-73 in the final second of the period.

After allowing 61 points in the first half, the Sixers held the Kings scoreless for the first 4:56 of the third quarter and rebuilt their lead to nine points. Sacramento missed its first nine attempts and finished at 24 percent (5-of-21) for the period.

Philadelphia came out flying as Ratliff scored six and Iverson four in an opening 12-2 burst. The Sixers led by as many as 13 points before settling for a 36-24 advantage after one period as Iverson scored 12 points.

"They came out and jumped on us early," Adelman said. "They were intent on pushing the ball and taking to us. We dug ourselves a hole twice and it was hard to come back."

Iverson scored 15 more in the second quarter, including a layup that kept Philadelphia's lead at 55-45 with 4:27 remaining in the first half. But the Sixers got sloppy and the Kings rallied with a 16-7 spurt that featured six points from Webber and 3-pointers from Williams and Stojakovic and cut the deficit to one point at halftime.

In the first half, Iverson scored 27 points on 11-of-21 shooting and handed out four assists. Webber also was spectacular with 22 points and 11 rebounds.
