Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Clippers with Lamar Odom were a lot better than the Philadelphia 76ers without Allen Iverson.

Odom returned from a five-game suspension to score 25 points as the Clippers cruised to an 88-77 victory over the punchless 76ers, who dropped their season-high fourth straight game.

Odom was suspended March 7 by the NBA for violating the league's anti-drug policy. Without their leading scorer and best all-around player, the Clippers lost four of five games.

"It definitely was a learning experience," Odom said. "Hopefully you learn from it and of course it (not playing) hurts. I've played basketball since I was 6 years old, every day. When I'm missing games, it hurts to watch."

With Iverson sidelined with a hip pointer, the 6-10 Odom clearly was the best player on the court. He created offense for himself and his teammates as he made 8-of-13 shots and handed out six assists.

"I'm feeling cocky right now and I just wanted to come back and win the game," Odom said. "I just glad we won the game. ... I wish he'd (Iverson) have played. It would have made this game that much more competitive."

"It's always good to get your leader back on the court," Clippers guard Jeff McInnis said. "He draws attention and makes your offensive game easier. I had more energy on defense late in the game because Lamar took a lot off me by bringing the ball upcourt."

Odom scored eight points in a decisive 23-6 run in the third quarter that turned a five-point deficit into a 70-58 lead with 2:24 left.

The 76ers have had the best record in the NBA for much of the season but looked like a lottery team without Iverson, the NBA's leading scorer at 31.1 points per game. The offense stagnated and Philadelphia got none of the easy baskets it normally gets as it fell to 3-2 without its superstar.

"Obviously, we miss Allen," Sixers assistant Randy Ayers said. "He can get us 10-12 points in a hurry."

"Not having Allen, who's responsible for 60 percent of our offense, takes away from our rotation off the bench," 76ers forward George Lynch said.

Also playing without coach Larry Brown, the Sixers have lost four in a row for the first time since February 16-20, 1999. Brown and Iverson are expected to rejoin the team for Friday's game in Phoenix, the finale of a four-game road trip.

"We've come back from adversity before," Ayers said. "Getting coach Brown back the next two days will certainly help. He's our key leader in this organization. We'll pull this together and get out of this tailspin."

"Not having coach Brown means a lot," Lynch said. "Randy does a good job but it never hurts to have another mind on the bench."

Jeff McInnis had 16 points and nine assists and Michael Olowokandi added 12, 12 rebounds and four blocks for the Clippers, who shot 57 percent (32-of-56) and have won seven straight home meetings with the Sixers since December 27, 1992.

"I thought Lamar was really good, but I thought Michael was sensational," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "I thought Michael did just a great job, probably the most complete game he played for us this year."

Aaron McKie scored 22 points for Philadelphia, which shot just 39 percent (31-of-79) and scored just 31 points in the second half.

A transition dunk by Tyrone Hill gave the Sixers a 52-47 lead with 8:33 left in the third quarter. Odom responded with a 3-pointer, starting the key run.

Consecutive hook shots by Olowokandi gave the Clippers the lead for good at 58-56 before Eric Piatkowski made a 3-pointer with 5:10 to go. Philadelphia's Eric Snow made a jumper, but Piatkowski made two free throws, McInnis made one and Odom and McInnis made 3-pointers to cap the surge.

Odom scored 12 points in the third quarter, which ended with the Clippers holding a 73-62 lead and receiving a standing ovation from the sellout crowd 19,680 at the Staples Center, many of whom came to see Iverson.

Despite managing just one basket in the first 5 1/2 minutes of the final period, Los Angeles never really was in trouble. The Sixers got no closer than 84-77 on a hook by Dikembe Mutombo with 2:54 left and did not score another basket.

Piatkowski scored 13 points and rookie Darius Miles added 10 as the Clippers overcame 20 turnovers and the absence of injured forward Corey Maggette, who sat out with a sprained ankle.

Mutombo scored 14 points and Snow added 11 and nine assists for the Sixers, who were outrebounded, 33-32.

McKie scored 14 points in the first half, helping Philadelphia to a 46-44 lead.

"Without Iverson, we thought that 46 points was a lot for them to have at the half," Gentry said. "We talked about being in a situation where we had to shut them down in the second half and I thought we did a great job of that."
