Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson can be held down for only so long.

After playing his worst six quarters of the season, Iverson erupted for 15 of his 21 points in the third period as the Philadelphia 76ers got back on track with a 76-67 victory over the punchless Atlanta Hawks.

"It's a game that we had to win," Philadelphia forward Tyrone Hill said. "Anytime you play after a holiday, you're going to be a little bit sluggish. But at the same time, you gotta be in a game that you're supposed to win."

Iverson scored just seven points on 3-of-17 shooting in Wednesday's 88-73 loss at Charlotte that snapped the Sixers' season-opening 10-game winning streak. He continued to struggle in the first half tonight, going 0-for-4 from the field and scoring only three points.

But Iverson took over early in the third quarter, registering eight points in a 10-0 spurt that put Philadelphia ahead, 50-41, with 8:38 left.

Iverson finished just 6-of-20 from the field, making him 9-of-37 in the last two games.

"We played all right," Sixers forward Toni Kukoc said. "I don't think we played that special, but we controlled the game all the way."

Atlanta pulled within 72-66 with 1:37 to go on a layup by Alan Henderson, who contributed 17 points. But the Hawks got no closer as the 67 points tied a team low.

"I thought we battled them very well defensively," Atlanta coach Lon Kruger said. "We just couldn't get anything going offensively."

Kukoc felt sympathy for the Hawks, who have won just two of their first 13 games.

"Those guys have been playing hard and trying to do good things, but sometimes you just cannot handle it with a lack of talent," he said. "As much as they're hustling, you've got to have the talent to win the games."

Atlanta managed just 28 points in the second half -- two more than the franchise low against Cleveland on November 19, 1996. Philadelphia had only 36 points in the second half.

After Jason Terry missed a runner in the lane, Iverson put it away, completing a three-point play to give the Sixers a 75-66 cushion with 48 seconds remaining.

"Once you get into transition, he's probably one of the toughest besides Kobe (Bryant) in the NBA to stop," Terry said, referring to Iverson. "He can do so many things. He can pull up, he can attack the basket well. He just has a knack for getting to the basket."

In the first half, Atlanta's starting backcourt of Terry and Matt Maloney outscored Philadelphia's duo of Iverson and Eric Snow, 14-13. Iverson and Snow are averaging a combined 37 points per game, but the Sixers managed just a 40-39 halftime lead.

Maloney started in place of Atlanta's leading scorer, Jim Jackson, who was placed on the injured list before the game after suffering a sprained right knee in Wednesday's 78-74 victory over New York.

"When you lose a guy that's one of your leading scorers, you need that to come from somewhere else," Kruger said. "It's going to be a question for us, but we're going to keep searching until we can find someone to step forward."

Snow finished with 14 points for the Sixers, who were held 18 below their season average of 94.

But Philadelphia dominated inside against the cold-shooting Hawks, outscoring Atlanta in the paint, 38-24. The Sixers had a 54-36 rebounding edge and converted 18-of-32 foul shots, compared to just 7-of-9 for Atlanta.

Theo Ratliff grabbed 14 rebounds and Hill added 11 for the Sixers, who opened a 25-15 lead on Iverson's two free throws with 32 seconds left in the first quarter.

Atlanta jumped out to an 8-0 lead, holding the Sixers scoreless for the first 4 1/2 minutes. But Philadelphia ripped off an 18-2 run and took an 18-10 lead on Snow's dunk with 2:25 left in the opening period.

"They got a lot of offensive rebounds," Henderson said. "It seems like the ball is always just out of reach. We were right there with a chance to cut it down to four in the last minutes of the game and we couldn't get it done."

Philadelphia shot only 37 percent (28-of-75) from the field but held the Hawks to 35 percent (27-of-77).

Terry finished with 13 points and Maloney added 11.
