Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers shut down Jason Kidd and slowed down the New Jersey Nets.

Allen Iverson scored 28 points and Aaron McKie held Kidd without a point as the 76ers supplanted the Nets as the hottest team in the Eastern Conference with a 94-82 victory.

"Anytime they take the floor, everybody is shooting for them," Kidd said. "They have everything we want. They hold the key right now. They are the Eastern Conference champions and they showed it again tonight, why they are."

The 76ers (5-5) arrived with four straight wins, all since the return of NBA MVP Iverson from elbow surgery. The Nets (7-2) were looking for their sixth consecutive win, which would have matched their longest streak since 1992.

New Jersey's resurgence has centered around Kidd, the All-Star point guard who has shown the team how to win. He collected 12 assists and nine rebounds but was 0-of-9 from the field and had five turnovers.

The last one was forced by McKie, who stripped Kidd and went the length of the court for a layup in traffic that gave the Sixers an 82-72 lead with 4:48 remaining.

"If he's not an All-Star as far as playing in the All-Star Game, he's an All-Star on our team because of the little things he does for us," Iverson said. "Without Aaron McKie, this team doesn't go anywhere."

Former Net Derrick Coleman scored 20 points and Matt Harpring added 15 for Philadelphia, which has won six of the last seven meetings. McKie had 14 points and 12 assists.

Kenyon Martin scored 16 points and former Sixer Todd MacCulloch added 15 for the Nets, who shot just 37.5 percent (33-of-88) from the field, missed all 12 of their 3-pointers and gave up 27 points on 17 turnovers.

"I think the secret is out," Kidd said. "We won't be sneaking up on anybody and that's just another way for us to learn how to compete."

The Sixers led 73-60 entering the final period, but Keith Van Horn scored seven straight Nets points before a free throw by Martin made it 78-72 with 5:22 remaining.

Philadelphia was forced to inbound with seven seconds left on the shot clock, but Iverson got free for a jumper. Kidd pushed the ball upcourt, but McKie stripped him and weaved through the defense for a layup.

MacCulloch scored, but Harpring and Coleman each made two foul shots for an 86-74 bulge with 3:29 remaining.

Dikembe Mutombo had eight points, 12 rebounds and three blocks for Philadelphia, which shot 44 percent (38-of-86). Iverson had five steals.

"We're the Eastern Conference champions, so people get pumped up for us," Iverson said. "We're not worried about how things are now because we got off to a bad start. It's just important for us to keep getting better."

Van Horn scored 13 points and rookie Richard Jefferson added 11 for the Nets. Martin had five blocks.

Iverson came out flying with 15 points in the first quarter as the Sixers raced to a 29-20 lead.

"That guy is a big part of their success and they got the right pieces," Kidd said. "Coach (Larry) Brown knows how to put guys in a position to succeed and he has proven that with all the teams that he has coached."

The Nets trailed 38-28 before rattling off 14 straight points, including six by Kerry Kittles, for a 42-38 edge with 4 1/2 minutes left in the second quarter.

Coleman scored seven points in a 12-2 surge that ended the first half and gave Philadelphia a 50-44 lead. McKie and Iverson had six apiece in the first eight minutes of the third quarter as the advantage ballooned to 69-49.
