Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers without Allen Iverson were a lot better than the Charlotte Hornets without Derrick Coleman.

Iverson scored 25 points but was on the bench when the 76ers put together the decisive fourth-quarter surge that gave them a 102-96 victory over the Hornets, who lost Coleman to an ejection in the second quarter.

"Allen's had some situations recently where he is being double- and triple-teamed," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "He's missed a lot of jump shots with those defenses. He was in in the last minutes, though."

It was the third straight triumph for the 76ers (38-28) and the third straight loss for the Hornets (35-31), who fell three games behind Philadelphia in the race for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

No longer the NBA scoring leader, Iverson was replaced by Aaron McKie with 5:46 remaining and the Sixers leading by one point. David Wesley hit a jumper to give Charlotte an 88-87 lead but George Lynch had a fast-break layup, McKie made a jumper and Tyrone Hill scored inside, giving the Sixers a five-point lead.

Iverson returned and hit a floating layup to cap an 8-0 burst and give Philadelphia a 95-88 lead with 3:05 left. Charlotte fought within 97-94 before Lynch beat the shot clock with an off-balance jumper with 50 seconds to go and Iverson added a free throw 13 seconds later.

"I looked up with two seconds on the shot clock," said Lynch, who scored 10 points. "I didn't have time to take it in so I just put it up. It felt good and it went down for us. It gave us a little more breathing room."

Iverson made 9-of-24 shots and got plenty of help. All five starters were in double figures, with Tyrone Hill collecting 16 points and 14 rebounds. Toni Kukoc scored nine points and fellow reserve Matt Geiger added eight and 10 boards.

"We know that we have to take the pressure off Allen," Lynch said. "Everyone has to be a threat offensively. With Toni out there it makes things easier. He is spreading the ball around very well."

Eddie Jones scored 28 points for the Hornets, who lost Coleman -- their second-leading scorer and leading rebounder -- to a flagrant-2 foul with 6:41 to play in the second quarter. The Hornets led for a total of 71 seconds thereafter.

"It was unfortunate when Derrick went out," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "He's been carrying us and he got off to an excellent start tonight. When we lose him, we're scrambling."

"Derrick Coleman has been playing at an incredibly high level. It is unfortunate that he wasn't in there," Brown said. "He is making everyone in the league understand how good of a player he is."

Rookie Eddie Robinson picked up the bulk of Coleman's minutes and made the most of them. He had 14 points and a season-high nine rebounds and led a surge that briefly gave Charlotte the lead in the third quarter.

"I just wanted to come in and provide a spark," Robinson said. "I think I shot the ball pretty well. I watch what the other team is doing (while I'm) on the bench, trying to analyze their game and what they're trying to do."

The Hornets led 36-33 when Kukoc got inside Coleman for a tip-in. On the next possession, he beat Coleman to a rebound and Coleman retaliated by slapping down at the ball. His hand came across the face of Kukoc, who ended up with a scratch under his right eye.

"I don't think he did it on purpose," Kukoc said. "He just got a little frustrated and I guess my eye was in the wrong place at the wrong time."

Iverson made two free throws and McKie drilled a 3-pointer to give the Sixers a 40-36 lead. Ratliff and Iverson scored four points apiece in a 10-3 surge that extended the advantage to 59-48 just before halftime and Hill's layup opened the third quarter and gave Philadelphia its largest lead at 63-50.

Charlotte fought back behind Robinson, who made four straight jumpers to give the Hornets a 70-69 lead with 4:20 remaining. Kukoc answered with a 17-footer to trigger a 10-2 spurt that closed the quarter and featured a shoving match between McKie and Hornets forward Anthony Mason, who both received technical fouls.

"One of the very important things for us coming down the stretch into the playoffs is that we respond to the physical play," Kukoc said.

"It's that time of year," said Hornets center Elden Campbell, who scored 13 points. "Teams are coming with their best stuff."

A dunk by Kukoc extended the lead to 85-76 with 7:52 remaining before Wesley and Jones made 3-pointer to cap a 10-0 run and give the Hornets an 86-85 edge with 6:03 to go.

Eric Snow had 14 points and 10 assists and Theo Ratliff scored 14 points for the Sixers, who shot 46 percent (42-of-91) and held a 46-41 rebounding advantage.

Wesley had 17 points and 10 assists and Mason collected 14 and 11 rebounds for the Hornets, who shot 51 percent (38-of-75) but just 3-of-13 from 3-point range.
