Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson scored 29 points and Tyrone Hill matched a career high with 20 rebounds as the league-leading Philadelphia 76ers posted their 10th straight road win, an 86-82 triumph over the Washington Wizards.

Philadelphia can match the franchise record for consecutive road victories with a win at Dallas on January 23. Julius Erving's 76ers reeled off 11 straight road wins from October 15-November 26, 1980.

Iverson scored 11 points in the third quarter as the Sixers built a comfortable 70-56 cushion entering the final 12 minutes. Washington made things interesting with a 17-4 run, closing to 80-75 with 4:19 to play. Iverson answered with a jumper after a key offensive rebound by Hill, but again, the Wizards refused to go away.

"I started off real slow," said Iverson, who suffered through an uncharacteristic 12-point performance in Wednesday's home loss to Portland. "I struggled the last game and I was just concentrating on coming out here and taking good shots, but that was not the case. I took a couple of ill-advised shots that messed my rhythm up a bit. Then in the second half, I hit a couple of shots and started to feel comfortable again."

Juwan Howard hit a free throw and a jumper before Richard Hamilton scored to get Washington within 82-80 with 1:25 remaining.

"Washington did a great job of getting back in the game," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "They started trapping to get us out of sync. We got real tentative and they made some shots. We were fortunate Allen made some shots at the end."

Iverson, nicknamed "The Answer," provided one with another clutch jumper, but the Wizards got two from the line from Hamilton and had a chance to tie when Sixers guard Kevin Ollie was called for charging with 35 seconds left.

Tyrone Nesby missed badly on a 3-pointer and Hill came up with the rebound before making 1-of-2 at the line to extend the margin to three points with 18.6 seconds to go.

"Stats don't mean nothing if you don't win," Hill said. "I feel like I'm getting stronger and it feels pretty good."

Chris Whitney, who made a career-best six 3-pointers on Wednesday against Seattle, lost control while dribbling beyond the arc on Washington's ensuing trip and Iverson made a free throw with three seconds left to settle matters.

Theo Ratliff scored 15 points and Hill finished with 14 for Philadelphia, which has not lost on the road since a 96-85 setback at the Staples Center against the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers on December 5. The Sixers boast the league's top road record at 17-4 and own a 26-9 overall mark.

"We've not played great at home, so every game we can steal is important," Brown said.

Hamilton scored 22 points for the floundering Wizards, who have lost six in a row since their posting back-to-back wins for the only time this season.

Aaron McKie scored nine points and Ratliff grabbed nine boards for the Sixers, who held a 48-42 rebounding advantage and shot 43 percent (35-of-82).

Whitney scored 18 points and Howard added 14 and 10 rebounds for the Wizards, who shot 45 percent (35-of-89) but committed 18 turnovers.

Washington, which nearly rallied for a come-from-behind win against the SuperSonics two nights ago, dug itself a deep hole in the third period.

"It's somewhat discouraging," Washington coach Leonard Hamilton said, "because it feels we save our best for the emergencies."

Trailing 43-38 at halftime, the Wizards got within three points when Nesby opened the third quarter with a basket. But Hill and McKie connected from 14 feet and Iverson drilled a 3-pointer to spark his best quarter of the night.

The 6-foot guard made two free throws, back-to-back jumpers and a five-foot pullup before feeding George Lynch for a dunk that made it 70-50 with 1:10 left in the period.

"One point in the third quarter, I put together a couple of shots," Iverson said. "But then we stopped doing the things we were doing, they started pressing us and got us out of our offensive sets."

Richard Hamilton ended Iverson's outburst with a basket and Michael Smith made two free throws before Whitney's jumper before the end of the third quarter cut the deficit to 14, sparking Washington's big push in the final period.

Howard, Hamilton and Whitney combined for eight straight points and Smith's follow shot got the Wizards within 79-73 with 5:01 to play.
