Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- This is the type of game Philadelphia 76ers coach Larry Brown envisioned when he first got the notion that All-Star center Dikembe Mutombo would fit in quite nicely with his league-leading unit.

Allen Iverson continued his torrid scoring with 43 points and Mutombo added 17, 13 rebounds and five blocked shots in his first game with his new team as the 76ers led from start to finish in a 99-78 rout of the Detroit Pistons.

The Sixers brokered a trade deadline deal for Mutombo with Atlanta on Thursday, sending their own All-Star center, Theo Ratliff, and Toni Kukoc to the Hawks.

Clearly making a bold move toward capturing its first NBA championship since 1983, Philadelphia received some immediate dividends from the 7-2 pivotman from the Congo.

"(Mutombo) was terrific," Brown said. "We gave him some touches and he made some plays in the post. He rebounded and defended like he's done his whole career. He was up all last night trying to fly in, got up at 7 in the morning, had his physical, got here at 4:30 or 4 and didn't even know until 7 that he was going to play. I think it's pretty remarkable what he was able to do under those circumstances."

Mutombo hit 7-of-12 shots, made 3-of-4 free throws and may have inspired his 6-foot fellow All-Star to hit the boards.

Iverson grabbed 10 rebounds to go with 15-of-36 shooting as the Sixers won their sixth straight game.

"I'm just glad to have him with us," Iverson said. "He definitely did the job more than I expected. He changed the whole game with his defense and his rebounding. Guys usually get easy baskets against us, but there was none of that tonight."

Iverson has reached the 40-point mark 29 times in his career, including 13 this season. Philadelphia has won five of the last six games in which Iverson has scored 40.

"That's some chemistry I need to be part of," Mutombo said. "It's exciting to be a part of it. They believe in winning and it makes you feel so much better. I know they wanted me to come in and do my thing, which is blocking shots and rebounding. I wasn't expecting to get so many points, but Larry Brown understands my game and believes I'm capable of scoring."

Brown coached Iverson and Mutombo in the NBA All-Star Game in Washington on February 11 and watched the duo bring the Eastern Conference back from a 21-point deficit to a thrilling 111-110 victory.

Former Sixer Jerry Stackhouse scored 22 points on 10-of-28 shooting for Detroit, which has lost three of four.

George Lynch scored 10 points for Philadelphia, which shot 47 percent (40-of-85) and battled the Pistons to a 53-53 draw on the boards. The Sixers outscored Detroit, 17-4, at the line as Stackhouse, newly acquired forward Corliss Williamson and John Wallace were the only Pistons to get to the line.

"When you play the best team in the NBA, you have to play a great game to win. We didn't do that," Detroit coach George Irvine said. "We played hard, but you also have to be at the top of your game, which we weren't. You can't shoot 29 percent and expect to beat the 76ers. Some of that was shot selection, but a lot of it was Dikembe."

Things got ugly in a hurry at the Palace as Iverson opened the scoring by knocking down a pair of jumpers, sparking a 16-4 run that he fueled with eight points and Mutombo capped with a six-foot hook shot.

"He's not an All-Star for nothing," Detroit center Mikki Moore said. "He didn't do anything spectacular, he just plays good defense and changes a lot of shots. He didn't play like he did in the All-Star game, when he had (22) rebounds. But that was a pretty good performance for a guy who just got off the plane."

Detroit trailed 36-27 after one period, 61-39 at halftime and did not seriously threaten after intermission, slipping to 0-3 against Philadelphia this season. The Sixers have won eight of the last 10 meetings.
