Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- On the night Eric Snow, Matt Geiger and Toni Kukoc returned, Allen Iverson brought the Philadelphia 76ers all the way back.

Iverson scored six of his 49 points in a 24-second flurry in the final minute as the 76ers rallied twice in the fourth quarter for a 107-104 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

"This was a great game for the NBA," Iverson said. "It was a good playoff atmosphere, a great crowd. Fortunately for us, we hung in there and got the win."

The league-leading 76ers (37-14) had been without Snow, Geiger and Kukoc for the last three weeks. Snow and Geiger had been out since December and when Kukoc was sidelined with back spasms seven games ago, the Sixers sputtered, going 3-4.

Although reinforcements finally arrived, Iverson played much the way he has for the last two months -- as a one-man offensive machine. He made 17-of-32 shots and 12-of-14 free throws as he eclipsed 40 points for the 10th time this season.

On Sunday, Iverson won the All-Star Game Most Valuable Player by taking over down the stretch. This one was no different as he erased a five-point deficit in a matter of seconds.

After a jumper by Glenn Robinson gave the Bucks a 104-99 lead with 1:11 to play, Iverson drove for a basket and was fouled with 56 seconds remaining. He missed the free throw, but George Lynch grabbed the rebound and fed him for a floater in the lane that made it 104-103 just seven seconds later.

Ray Allen lost control for Milwaukee's eighth turnover of the fourth quarter and Sam Cassell grabbed Iverson, who was trying to sneak out for a fast break. His two free throws gave the Sixers a 105-104 lead with 32 seconds left.

Former Sixer Tim Thomas missed a drive and Philadelphia's Tyrone Hill grabbed his 16th rebound with 18 seconds to play. After a timeout, the Sixers killed all but three-tenths of a second with quick passes before Aaron McKie made the clinching free throws.

"They kept moving the ball in that last possession and we were trying to foul the guy with the ball," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We didn't react well to the situation.

"I don't think we should be happy with this game tonight. We gave them the game at the end. We turned the ball over and made too many simple mistakes down the stretch to beat a team like them."

Snow, sidelined since December 5 with a broken ankle, started and played 26 minutes. He had two points and six assists.

"My minutes were limited," Snow said. "I did get a little winded but generally felt good. It was important for us to get off to a good start after the All-Star break -- get back into a rhythm and start winning games."

Geiger, out since December 20 with a sore right knee, was the most effective of the trio, scoring eight points in nine minutes. Kukoc had five points and four assists in 27 minutes.

"It felt pretty comfortable," Geiger said. "I was able to hit a couple of nice shots but it'll take at least two to three weeks to really get back into game shape."

"Eric and Matt really helped us with fresh legs," said Sixers coach Larry Brown, whose team must do without injured All-Star center Theo Ratliff for four to six weeks. "Just the opportunity to play them, even on a limited basis, was a big help."

Aaron McKie scored 17 points, Lynch added 12 and nine rebounds and Hill scored 10 for the Sixers, who improved to a league-best 22-6 on the road against the Eastern Conference's best home team.

"We defended down the stretch," Brown said. "That was about as good as we can play defense. This was a huge win for us."

Robinson scored 28 points, Ray Allen added 27 and nine assists and Sam Cassell 20 and 13 for the Bucks, who fell to 19-7 at the Bradley Center.

Averaging 29.7 points per game, Iverson scored 26 in the first half as Philadelphia raced to a 59-51 lead. Cassell countered with 12 in the third quarter, when Milwaukee scored 36 points and took an 87-81 lead into the final period.

Thomas opened the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer but Cassell went to the bench with his fifth foul and the Sixers went on a 13-2 spurt. A jumper by McKie gave Philadelphia a 94-92 lead with 5:35 remaining.

A three-point play by Allen and two free throws by Cassell gave the Bucks a 100-96 lead with 2:45 left. Lynch made three free throws before two by Thomas and Robinson's jumper rebuilt the lead to five points.

Thomas scored 15 points for the Bucks, who shot 48 percent (40-of-83) and held the Sixers to 42.5 percent (37-of-87). Nevertheless, Philadelphia improved to 5-1 in games decided by three points or less.
