Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- For the Philadelphia 76ers, the math was simple: 18 to zero equals 9-0.

Eric Snow scored 10 of his 14 points during the third quarter, when the 76ers used an 18-0 run -- their second in as many games -- to remain unbeaten and establish the best start in franchise history with a 94-73 rout of the banged-up Miami Heat.

Philadelphia's nine straight wins to begin the season eclipses the previous club record set by the 1979-80 squad that went to the NBA Finals before losing in six games to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Trailing 52-48 after a 3-pointer by Miami point guard Tim Hardaway, the Sixers, who ran off 18 straight points in Wednesday's 107-98 victory over the Cavaliers, again went on a prodigious tear.

Snow started things with a jumper before Theo Ratliff dunked and made two free throws, putting Philadelphia in front for good, 54-52, with 7:19 left in the third quarter.

Allen Iverson, who finished with 19 points to lead five players in double figures, fed George Lynch and Tyrone Hill for consecutive baskets before drilling a 19-footer off a feed from Snow to make it 60-52.

Snow sandwiched a layup by Hill inside two free throws and a 17-footer, capping the run and giving the Sixers a commanding 66-52 cushion with 3:25 left in the third period.

"We played well until that third quarter, then we just let it go," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "When push came to shove, we allowed them to shove a lot and play defense. They took us out, offensively. They won the war, they got on a roll and we couldn't stop it."

Philadelphia has won nine in a row for the first time since a 12-game winning streak in 1990 and remained the NBA's lone unbeaten team. The Sixers also moved within six victories of the 1949-50 Washington Capitols and the 1993-94 Houston Rockets for the league record for wins to start a season.

"You don't think about that in your wildest dreams, to come in a league that's so tough like this and be 9-0. After all that went on this summer with me personally, that makes it that much sweeter, that much better," said Iverson, who fell under harsh criticism for offensive lyrics on his rap album.

Brian Grant had 16 points -- but none after halftime -- and 11 rebounds for Miami, which missed 11 shots and went scoreless for 7:01 during Philadelphia's big run.

"I don't know what happened," Grant said. "We just broke down."

Already without center Alonzo Mourning (kidney ailment) for the season and Eddie Jones (calf), the Heat lost Hardaway to knee tendinitis in the third quarter.

"I'm proud of the way we came out in the second half and took care of a team that is pretty banged up," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "They still have some tremendous players. Defensively, in the second half, we couldn't play much better than that. That was the most significant thing to me."

Hardaway scored 14 points and rookie Eddie House added 11 for Miami, which shot 38 percent (29-of-77) en route to a season-low point total. The Heat fell to 2-4 against Eastern Conference foes and failed to clear 90 points for the seventh time in nine games.

"They got aggressive and we couldn't match their intensity," Grant said. "We started getting lazy on the back cuts and stuff. We let them put points on the board and got their fans riled up. We didn't, as men or ballplayers, do what we had to do."

Hill scored 12 points, Aaron McKie 11 and Ratliff added 10 for Philadelphia, which shot 52 percent (38-of-73) and overcame 17 turnovers.

The Sixers fell behind early and trailed 24-16 in the waning moments of the first quarter. But Lynch heaved up a 46-footer at the buzzer to cut the deficit to five entering the second quarter.

Grant, who dominated the first half, and Hardaway had consecutive baskets late in the second period, but Philadelphia again capitalized on a late chance when Iverson beat the buzzer with a layup, shaving the lead to 47-43 at intermission.

Iverson hit a 17-footer and Snow a technical free throw to get Philadelphia within 49-48 early in the third quarter. Hardaway answered with a 3-pointer with 10:04 left but Miami would not score again until Anthony Mason made two free throws with three minutes remaining in the period.

"We broke the record, but still everybody is going to come out and try to take us out, every night," Iverson said. "We understand that, we accept that and we're willing to take the challenge."
