Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- For a while, it looked like the Atlanta Hawks had gotten the better of the Dikembe Mutombo deal. But the Philadelphia 76ers still have Allen Iverson.

Iverson scored 16 of his 47 points in the pivotal third quarter as the 76ers withstood early and late challenges by the Hawks and held on for a 108-103 victory, their fourth straight triumph.

It was Atlanta's 10th straight loss, its longest losing streak since a 10-game slide from October 30-November 15, 1980.

Iverson made 16-of-30 shots, including eight in a row from the second to the third quarters, as he repeatedly beat Jason Terry and Brevin Knight, among the NBA's quicker guards. He eclipsed 40 points for the 16th time this season, reaching the plateau early in the fourth quarter.

"You can't let him get going early, then he thinks he can make everything," Terry said. "He got 17 in the first, 16 in the third. It's just hard to guard him."

"He had it going," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "He really made shots tonight. The biggest thing is when teams double-team him and he gives it up. I would like for him, a lot of times, in certain situations to try and get it back. I think he did it a few times tonight."

On February 22, the Sixers acquired the 7-2 Mutombo and forward Roshown McLeod from the Hawks for forwards Theo Ratliff and Toni Kukoc, center Nazr Mohammed and guard Pepe Sanchez. Ratliff is sidelined with a broken wrist but the other three saw action and played well in stretches.

"`Naz' played well, Pepe got a chance to get in the game, Toni played well," Iverson said. "It did feel kind of funny, playing against them, when you've been playing with them all year. When someone gets traded, it's always a funny feeling when you play against guys who you went to war with. Look left and right in the foxhole, and they were right there fighting with you. It's tough. The flip side is we're still friends, and we still have a relationship outside of basketball."

"Nazr played great," Brown said. "I was thrilled for him."

No one played better than Iverson. He scored 12 points in a five-minute span as the Sixers turned a six-point lead into an 83-66 advantage in the closing seconds of the third quarter.

And when the Hawks rallied within two points in the game's final minute, Iverson drilled a fadeaway corner jumper to give the Sixers a 103-99 lead. His two free throws with 10.8 seconds to go closed the scoring and sealed the win.

Mutombo had 13 points, 13 rebounds and nine blocks and Eric Snow had 12 points, 13 assists and a clutch jumper in the last minute for the Sixers (46-16), who have beaten the Hawks seven straight times and moved 30 games above .500.

"Guys want to come out and beat us," Iverson said. "When I was on a losing team, every time we had the chance to play a team going to the playoffs, we tried to beat those guys. Sometimes we beat them, sometimes we didn't but we fought the whole game. That shows you're a professional."

Terry had 25 points and 10 assists for the Hawks. Mohammed had a career-high 18 points and 10 rebounds, Kukoc scored 12 points and Sanchez filled in for two minutes for Knight at the point.

"I got a bit of a surprise against Nazr Mohammed," Mutombo said. "I never played much against him. I though he was going to come in and set it up pick-and-roll and try to get an offensive rebound. Seeing him hit shot after shot, I went to the bench and asked `What's going on with this kid?' I had to adjust myself defensively. I didn't know he was able to it those shots."

"Don't forget I had a career night against Los Angeles when I was here (Philadelphia)," Mohammed said. "I love the big games. I love to go against the best teams and play against the best players."

The Sixers trailed late in the first half before Iverson made a jumper and layup for a 55-52 lead. He headed to the locker room with 23 points.

The Hawks still were within 65-59 with just under seven minutes left in the third quarter when Iverson really heated up. He had a 3-pointer and layup around Terry's 3-pointer, then hit another 3-pointer after a basket by Mohammed, giving the Sixers a 73-64 lead.

The teams traded baskets before Iverson had two more baskets in an 8-0 spurt. Tyrone Hill's layup made it 83-66 with 35 seconds to go.

Philadelphia still led by 15 points when Atlanta rattled off 11 in a row to get back in it. A three-point play by Terry made it 93-89 with 6:23 left.

"I was chasing Iverson all over, and he was still knocking shots down," Terry said. "You kind of get your head down, but in the fourth quarter, I stuck in there and came back and ran the team."

Snow missed jumpers on consecutive trips and the Hawks finally capitalized as Terry's two free throws cut the deficit to 101-99 with 1:11 to play. Iverson answered with his only basket of the period. After a tip-in by Mohammed, Snow finally made a jumper for a 105-101 edge with 31 seconds remaining.

"Allen got double- and triple-teamed and gave the ball up to Eric," Brown said. "He missed a few times but then he hit some big shots."

Hill had 12 points and nine boards for the Sixers, who shot 49 percent (43-of-88) and held a 48-41 advantage on the glass.

Rookie DerMarr Johnson scored 12 points and second-year guard Dion Glover added 10 for the Hawks, who shot 46.5 percent (40-of-86).

"The coach decided he was going to play everybody tonight," Kukoc said. "The young guys did a really great job and brought the game back. Twenty-four is the average age of this team, it just tells you how young we are."
