Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- It took Allen Iverson nearly 13 minutes to miss his first shot as the All-Star point guard scored 40 points, lifting the league-leading Philadelphia 76ers to a 100-83 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

Iverson knocked down his first 10 shots before misfiring on a six-footer with 11:14 remaining in the second quarter. The dynamic 6-foot guard finished 17-of-29 from the floor and 6-of-7 at the line as the Sixers cruised to their ninth win in 10 games while ending San Antonio's season-high five-game winning streak.

"I started off well. I hit some shots and then I cooled down a little bit," Iverson said. "In the second half, it didn't take much from me because my teammates handled everything so well. They just played a great game."

Iverson's first-quarter shooting display (9-of-9) was surreal as one jumper followed another with a few layups mixed in. He scored the Sixers' first basket before drilling a 19-footer and another short jumper to forge a 6-6 tie with 9:33 left in the first quarter.

A layup, another basket and two free throws followed and a 20-footer, layup and jumper just before the end of the period gave Philadelphia a 28-27 lead after 12 minutes.

"The Answer" began the second quarter by sinking a 16-footer from the left side but finally lost his touch on the Sixers' next possession. Iverson missed his lone 3-pointer of the night but his aerial assault helped Philadelphia to a sparkling 53 percent (41-of-77) performance from the field.

"He was wild tonight. He was phenomenal," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "I was looking to take him out to rest him, but he was going so well I didn't think about. He played great."

Iverson also grabbed five rebounds and handed out four assists in 43 minutes before leaving late in the fourth quarter to a rousing ovation from the crowd of 20,607 at the First Union Center.

The Sixers (27-9) moved one game ahead of Portland in the race for the NBA's best record and also bounced back nicely from Wednesday's ugly 93-75 home loss to the Trail Blazers. Iverson managed just 12 points in that contest.

Tim Duncan scored 29 points and Derek Anderson added 23 for San Antonio, which had won 10 of its previous 12 meetings with Eastern Conference foes, including a 96-76 home win over the Sixers on November 25.

Antonio Daniels scored 15 points and David Robinson had 10 for the Spurs, who shot 42 percent (35-of-85) and were outscored in each quarter.

Although he was nowhere near as hot as Iverson, Toni Kukoc scored 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting, including 3-of-3 from long range, for Philadelphia.

"That's what killed us," Duncan said. "We know Allen is going to have a high-scoring game, he always does. But to have Kukoc come out there and pick up the slack for him, make some great shots with a hand in his face, that's how it happens some nights."

"Toni Kukoc came off the bench and gave us everything we know he can give us," Iverson added. "That's big because it takes the pressure off of me and it stops people from double-teaming me and it gives other people good looks."

Aaron McKie had 12 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds for the Sixers, who held a 44-37 advantage on the boards and improved to 8-7 against teams from the West.

Duncan opened the second-half scoring, pulling the Spurs within 54-50. But George Lynch made a free throw, McKie nailed a 17-footer, Iverson hit two free throws and McKie connected again for a 61-50 cushion with 9:31 left in the third quarter.

The Spurs got mp closer than seven points thereafter and Iverson gave the Sixers their biggest lead, 98-80, when he buried a 20-footer with 2:21 to play.

"He was incredible," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It wasn't just the offense. He worked his butt off and picked up at the other end of the floor. He played `D' all the way down the court. He chased people and pinned then down. I am sure the fans didn't notice that. They just see him shoot, but he deserves credit for what he did on both ends of the court."
