Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Hold those MVP ballots. Chris Webber and the Sacramento Kings had something to say.

Led by an outstanding performance by Webber, the Kings kept Allen Iverson in check and roared to a 100-79 victory over the league-leading Philadelphia 76ers, who had a six-game winning streak snapped.

"We executed well, that's the biggest part about it," Webber said. "When you execute, you give yourself a chance to win, and that's what we did. We just wanted to come inhere and get a win. We feel we're one of the best in the league also."

Webber collected 26 points and 11 rebounds as he stated his case for MVP in the presence of Iverson, considered the favorite for the award. Relying primarily on mid-range jumpers, Webber shot 11-of-23 from the field and seemed to answer every surge by the 76ers with a basket.

Iverson leads the NBA in scoring, steals and minutes per game. He opted to play despite a bruised left hip that kept him out of Wednesday's win at Chicago and scored 28 points but needed 28 shots.

Iverson scored 17 points in the second half, when Philadelphia made a handful of half-hearted comeback attempts. Sacramento used defensive demon Doug Christie to hound Iverson, who had 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting in the first half.

"Today, it was good for me to come back in and try to get a win against my boy Allen," Webber said.

The Kings came out firing and never trailed, opening a 34-14 lead early in the second quarter. But they won this game with defense, which has turned them into one of the NBA's elite teams.

For the seventh time this season, Sacramento kept an opponent in the 70s. The Kings held the Sixers to 39 percent (31-of-79) shooting as they avenged a 107-104 home overtime setback on December 30 in which Iverson scored 46 points.

"It's a big win for us in their place," Webber said. "We got a little payback."

They are the best team in the league, so to come in here and win like this is good," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We showed some good patience, we didn't want to get out and run. We wanted them to walk up the other end of the court. It was just a solid game. A solid win for us through and through."

Peja Stojakovic scored 19 points and Christie added 14 for the Kings (44-20), who shot 53 percent (39-of-73) and matched their win total from last season while preventing the Sixers from doing the same.

Aaron McKie scored 17 points for Philadelphia (48-17), which lost more than a game. Iverson has a hip pointer and will not make the trip to Milwaukee on Saturday night. Neither will coach Larry Brown, who had an acid reflux and hiatal hernia and will undergo tests Monday.

"I'm not going," Brown said. "You get beat by 21, you get acid indigestion. That's why they asked me to stay."

Sixers team physician Dr. Jack McPhilemy provided a better explanation.

"The test he is taking on Monday will be to decide to see if they want to change some medication and make him feel better," McPhilemy said. "He's had chest discomfort. The cardiac workup gave him a clean bill of health. We're trying to figure out how bad it is so surgery is not in the discussion. We just want to make sure that the medicine he is on now is reasonably controlling it. The best way to see is to look at the lining of his stomach and the throat area."

"I couldn't care less about the basketball part," Iverson said. "I just hope that he's all right. This puts it all in perspective. With the news about coach, everyone around here is not happy with the fact we have the best record in the league. Coach will be fine. I know he'll be all right."

Sacramento bolted to a 12-2 lead and opened a 30-14 advantage after one period as Christie scored 10 points and Stojakovic nine. Christie made a pair of technical fouls and Webber hit a jumper to begin the second period and build the bulge to 34-14.

Iverson's jumper cut the deficit to 49-42 in the final minute of the first half, but Webber made a jumper and Stojakovic threw in a hook before the buzzer. Jason Williams opened the second half with a 3-pointer for a 56-42 lead.

"I thought we made a great comeback and had it down to seven near the half," Brown said. "Then we gave up a couple of hoops and it took the momentum away."

A runner by McKie made it a 10-point game but Webber made a hook and Williams hit a long 3-pointer for a 66-51 lead. The Sixers never got closer, trailing 78-62 after three quarters and by 23 in the final period.

"They have such good ballhandlers that when you try to trap them, there 4 and their 5 guy can bring the ball up," McKie said. "You can't get behind on a team like that."

Williams scored 11 points and Scot Pollard added 10 for the Kings, who made 10-of-17 from the arc and surprisingly held a 43-38 advantage on the glass.

Philadelphia made just 2-of-7 3-pointers, both by Iverson.
