Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Before heading out west, the Philadelphia 76ers left a little reminder for the Eastern Conference.

Allen Iverson scored 27 points as the league-leading 76ers began a five-game road trip with a 112-78 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who suffered their worst loss at Gund Arena.

Using an overwhelming second quarter, Philadelphia won its third straight game and improved to 14-2. All but two of those games have been against teams from the Eastern Conference, which does not have the strength or depth of the West.

"I hope this doesn't give us a false hope," said 76ers guard Eric Snow, who handed out 11 assists. "The rest of the trip won't be easy. Tonight, we got a lot of transition baskets and were taking a lot of good shots."

"This is a great start for our five-game road trip, but we still have to take the games one at a time," said center Theo Ratliff, who blocked seven shots. "Everybody is realizing their role and looking for each other. We just want to come out and try to be aggressive on both sides of the floor and things worked out for us."

The trip is Philadelphia's longest of the season and could go a long way toward detY++how good the Sixers really are. It continues Monday in Denver before the Sixers visit the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. After two days off, Philadelphia faces Portland on Friday and Vancouver on Saturday.

The Cavaliers came in leading the Central Division. But in front of a crowd of 20,562, they were thoroughly outplayed and lost for the sixth time in nine games, including a pair to the Sixers during that stretch.

Gund Arena opened in 1994 and Cleveland's previous worst loss here was a 116-85 setback to Seattle on January 4, 1995.

"I want to apologize to our fans for the display of our effort and what we put up there tonight," said Cavaliers coach Randy Wittman, who had a 28-minute meeting with his team after the game. "We talked about numbers being a strength of our team and checking egos at the door. We have to get back our attitudes. We've lost the edge and our nastiness has disappeared. We have taken a passive approach."

"I felt bad for Cleveland," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "They had a big house here and we played our best game of the year."

Matt Geiger scored 15 points and fellow reserve big man Todd MacCulloch added a season-high 14 off the bench for Philadelphia, which shot 55 percent (43-of-78) from the field while holding Cleveland to 33 percent (30-of-90). The Sixers forced 17 turnovers and blocked 10 shots.

Iverson scored seven points in the first quarter, when the Sixers took the lead for good. They held a 27-20 advantage entering the second period and took total control with a 25-4 explosion.

Iverson's layup off a steal by Snow made it 35-22 with 10:07 remaining. Lamond Murray sank two free throws but the Cavs did not score again for more than five minutes as the Sixers rattled off 17 straight points.

MacCulloch scored nine points and Ratliff and Geiger combined for six more. Geiger's layup made it 52-24 with 4:35 to play in the first half as the Cavs missed 16 of their first 17 shots in the period.

Cleveland closed to 58-39 at halftime but got no closer than 18 points in the third quarter, when Philadelphia went to a quick lineup. Iverson scored 14 points in the period, which ended with Philadelphia holding an 85-54 lead.

"I thought our whole team was terrific," Brown said. "The defense, when we had Ratliff in and three little guys, was unbelivable. Theo blocked or intimidated every shot and Iverson, Snow and McKie got almost every loose ball."

Philadelphia's largest lead came at 110-71 on a basket by Nazr Mohammed with just over two minutes to go.

Chris Gatling scored 13 points and Andre Miller and Trajan Langdon added 10 apiece for the ͱ who have lost four in a row.

"Philadelphia's the better team," Gatling said. "We just didn't come out to play."
