Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers keep reminding everyone that the last time they were this good was nine or 10 years ago.

Allen Iverson scored 27 points as the hot-shooting 76ers completed their first season series sweep of the Atlanta Hawks since the 1990-91 season with a 104-92 victory, their third in a row.

Tyrone Hill scored 20 points and Matt Geiger had nine of his 18 in a decisive second-quarter surge for the Sixers, who led by as many as 21 points and held on down the stretch. Philadelphia shot 55 percent (41-of-75) from the field, including 12-of-20 by Iverson and 7-of-10 by Geiger.

"We could have buried them a number of times," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We don't have an attitude where we know we can put people away. When we were up 20, we should have made it 30."

"I think it's more mental than anything," Hill said. "It's a bad habit, but I think a lot of teams do that."

With its fifth win in six games, Philadelphia (47-32) remained ahead of Charlotte in the race for fourth place and home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Sixers have their highest win total since 1989-90, when they went 53-29 and won the Atlantic Division.

"It's important, especially when you try to get geared up for the playoffs," Hill said. "Anytime you get a good win like that it's always a good feeling. It helps build confidence."

"They're all so big right now," Geiger said. "Obviously, when you're fighting for home-court advantage if you lose a game (now), you could lose the playoffs (later) because you could lose the homecourt advantage, which is so important."

Matched up against Iverson, rookie Jason Terry had 20 points and nine assists for the Hawks (26-53), who went 0-4 against the Sixers this season and have lost nine in a row overall.

"I just wanted to be in control tonight and not try to do too much," Terry said. "I knew defensively Iverson was going to come at me. In the first, he had 12 points, so I'm just thinking to myself, `What kind of defense am I playing?' Get up on him so he can go by me or lay back so he can shoot the jumper."

The skid is Atlanta's longest since the 1990-91 season and its next loss will set a single-season franchise record.

The Hawks took a 29-27 lead after a basket by rookie Cal Bowdler with 9:51 left in the second quarter before the Sixers took control with a 17-3 burst featuring nine points from Geiger. A jumper by Toni Kukoc capped it at 44-32 with 4:07 remaining.

In the final minute of the period, Iverson took a blow to the chest and headed for the locker room. He merely had the wind knocked out of him and returned to start the third quarter after scoring 18 points in the first half.

Atlanta still was within 61-51 before Philadelphia rattled off 11 straight points to open its largest lead. Hill scored four in the spurt, including a dunk off a feed from Eric Snow that made it 72-51 with 4:42 left in the third quarter. Snow had six of his nine assists in the period.

The Hawks made one last surge as Terry fueled a 17-8 run with seven points, including a basket that cut the deficit to 90-83 with 7:10 left. But Geiger made a free throw and Theo Ratliff hit two to restore Philadelphia's double-digit lead and Atlanta got no closer than seven points thereafter.

"They got it down to nine or seven and right there we got a little anxious a couple of times," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "But that's a great learning experience for them. It's the first time in a long time I thought Jason just took over. And that's how I want him to play."

"They are an NBA basketball team," Iverson said. "They're capable of making runs. They're playing relaxed with nothing to lose."

Ratliff had 13 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks and Kukoc had 12 points and seven assists for the Sixers, who committed just 11 turnovers and had 25 fast-break points.

Dikembe Mutombo had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Hawks, who shot 43 percent (36-of-84). Atlanta fell to 0-18 when its foes shoot 50 percent or better.
