Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers are rebounding.

Allen Iverson scored 34 points and the 76ers had a season-high 24 offensive rebounds in their fourth straight win, a 97-89 victory over the slumping New York Knicks.

Dikembe Mutombo had a season-high 24 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks and Corie Blount swept a season-high 15 boards for the 76ers, who shot poorly but did a great job of running down the misses against the smaller Knicks.

"Most of their guys on the floor were forwards and we were able to take advantage of our size," Mutombo said.

"Dikembe was phenomenal. I thought he dominated the whole game," 76ers coach Larry Brown said.

Despite the absence of injured power forward Derrick Coleman, Philadelphia also had a season high in total rebounds as it pounded New York, 56-39, on the backboards. The 76ers had 48 points in the paint and 19 second-chance points.

"We gave them too many second-chance shots," Knicks coach Don Chaney said. "You can't do that against a team that is on a roll. You really can do that against anybody. We have to do a better job of making contact and being aggressive on the boards. I thought that was the difference in the game."

Eric Snow scored a season-high 15 points for the 76ers (19-20), who have won seven of their last nine games to creep within one win of the .500 mark, where they have not been since December 2.

"We've come a long way," Snow said. "We just have to keep tugging, keep fighting and keep making it a war out there. We have to keep competing and once we do that, we'll strike some fear into these other teams. We are capable of beating every team in this league, we just have to do it. We have to prove it every night, and be more consistent with it."

"It says a lot about how we feel about winning basketball games and how we feel about each other," Iverson said. "We started off bad (this season) and we're getting better and better. I would rather start off bad than start off good and end up playing bad toward the end of the season. Maybe this is a good sign."

Latrell Sprewell scored 32 points and Allan Houston added 25 for the Knicks, who allowed a season high on the offensive glass and have lost seven consecutive games for the first time since February 1987.

"At this point we're just trying to be competitive and find a way. Right now, it's just not working," Sprewell said.

The Sixers got back in the game with a 9-0 run that closed the second quarter. They took control with a 15-2 surge that ended the third period.

A 3-pointer by Iverson gave Philadelphia its largest lead at 75-61 one minute into the final period. Sprewell and Houston combined to score the first nine points of a 12-3 burst that pulled New York within 76-73 with 7:40 to go.

Derrick McKey answered with a second-chance jumper, Snow made a spinning layup and Iverson sank two free throws to rebuild the lead to 84-75 with 5 1/2 minutes left.

Mutombo had a tip-in and Aaron McKie followed his own miss with a jumper in the lane to keep the lead at 88-79 with 2:05 to play. The Knicks got no closer than four points in the waning seconds.

My teammates gave me a chance to touch the ball tonight," said Mutombo. "I was able to respond very well."

"He was demanding the ball plus his rebounding, he was playing big," Snow said. "They way that they play, they kind of leave him and not guard him or play as much attention to him."

McKie scored 11 points and Matt Harpring grabbed seven rebounds for Philadelphia, which shot just 40 percent (36-of-90) but made 22-of-29 free throws. Iverson shot 9-of-27 but made 14-of-17 from the line.

The Knicks shot 44 percent (35-of-80) but attempted just 13 free throws, making 11. They also lacked a third scorer as Marcus Camby battled foul trouble and managed just six points.

New York controlled most of the first half and Camby's layup gave the Knicks their largest lead at 46-36 with 2:35 left. But Philadelphia scored the last nine points, including a running 3-pointer by Iverson at the horn.

Snow scored six points and fed Iverson for a layup in an 8-0 burst that opened the third quarter and gave the Sixers a 53-46 advantage. The Knicks battled back to take a 58-57 edge on a jumper by Sprewell with 4:26 remaining before the decisive run.

"We fought hard for the last couple of minutes of the first half," Iverson said. "In the locker room, we talked about momentum, and how we had the momentum coming into the second half. It carried on, we we're able to jump right on them in the first five minutes."
