Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Rasheed Wallace's mother greeted Allen Iverson with a hug, but her son and his Portland Trail Blazers teammates were less than hospitable to the Philadelphia 76ers in a battle of the NBA's top teams.

Wallace, a Philadelphia native and Simon Gratz High School graduate, had 18 points and 10 rebounds as the Western Conference-leading Trail Blazers never trailed in a 93-75 victory over the Eastern-leading 76ers.

Iverson, whose mother is a sideline fixture at the First Union Center, received a warm hug from Wallace's mom, who was donning her son's No. 30 jersey at her courtside seat.

"I miss it here all year long, except for the summer," Wallace said of Philadelphia.

Unfortunately for the Sixers, Iverson was off his game throughout, misfiring on 16-of-21 shots for a meager 12 points in 41 frustrating minutes.

Wallace had a follow shot, a dunk and a 20-footer during an opening 16-3 run as the Blazers took command early and never looked back, cruising to their ninth straight win while ending Philadelphia's seven-game run.

"Rasheed always plays great here," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "Every time I have had him, I think he plays terrific here. He plays an all-around game. I think he has gone from an All-Star candidate to an MVP candidate this year. He has improved in almost every category."

"This was definitely a big win for us," Wallace admitted. "We only play them twice a year. They got us out in Portland, so we had to go out there and play extra hard tonight to get this one and even the series."

Damon Stoudamire had 17 points and 11 assists for Portland, which displayed its depth by having seven players score in double figures, despite the absence of starting forward Scottie Pippen (sore elbow).

The Blazers (26-10) avenged a 107-94 home loss to the Sixers (25-9) on December 8.

"Deep down, we knew we had a bitter taste in our mouth from the last time they came out there," Wallace said.

Bonzi Wells scored 13 points, Arvydas Sabonis 11 and Stacey Augmon, starting for Pippen, Steve Smith and Dale Davis added 10 apiece as the league's deepest team strutted its stuff.

"I think they were great," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "Their execution offensively was phenomenal. They got every shot they wanted and their defense was great. ... They just beat us in every area."

Philadelphia pulled within one point twice late in the second quarter, but Wallace scored a basket and Smith hit an improbable 3-pointer while falling out of bounds with 2.7 seconds left in the first half as Portland opened a 47-41 lead.

The Sixers got the deficit down to two on three occasions early in the second half, but Wallace's layup sparked a 7-0 run that he capped with a 19-footer, making it 60-51 with 5:46 left in the third quarter.

Aaron McKie scored 15 points and helped Philadelphia make its final big push with a 3-pointer to get the Sixers within 68-62.

Stoudamire answered with a basket, but Iverson finally got a rise out of the crowd when he beat the third-quarter buzzer with a 24-footer from the right corner that shaved the lead to five entering the final period.

"They just had our number," Iverson said. "Like we had theirs when we played in Portland. They played a great game. They just had a solid overall effort."

"We needed to find some type of way to get ourselves back in it," McKie said. "We tried, but it just didn't work out for us tonight."

Stoudamire opened the fourth quarter by drilling a 22-footer and a 3-pointer, and Wallace connected from 12 feet to open a 77-65 cushion with 10:31 to play. Wallace made an 18-footer less than a minute later and Philadelphia did not seriously challenge thereafter.

"It seemed like every time they needed a good shot, they got it down," Philadelphia forward Toni Kukoc said. "We tried to come back in the game two or three times. We'd get it down to two points, but in the end of the third and fourth quarters, we just couldn't bring it back."

The Blazers shot 56 percent (41-of-73) and are one win away from matching Philadelphia's NBA season-high 10-game win streak to open the campaign.

"It's been defense," Dunleavy said of his team's streak. "We have come together. We have been a terrific defensive team the last couple years."

Philadelphia shot just 35 percent (28-of-80).
