Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- After losing their opener, the Philadelphia 76ers rebounded - literally. Allen Iverson scored 28 points and Todd MacCulloch and Brian Skinner dominated the backboards as the 76ers held on for a 95-93 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, who lost a road opener for the first time in 12 years. Even without injured forward Derrick Coleman, the 76ers had a huge size advantage over the smaller Bucks, who were missing burly forward Anthony Mason. Philadelphia put it to use on the offensive glass, where it held a 24-6 edge and repeatedly cleaned up its own mistakes. "They went with a lot of small lineups," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "Our big guys had a chance on the boards, and that's what we talked about." "It was good on our part to have Brian Skinner come off the bench and rebound the way he did," Iverson said. "He gave us a lift a long with the rest of the guys. We're going to need that from the guys off the bench, being that we got so many guys hurt." The Sixers squandered a eight-point lead and trailed, 90-89, with less than a minute to go when Keith Van Horn and Skinner grabbed offensive rebounds but missed inside. Eric Snow forced a jump ball that was won by Philadelphia, and Iverson drilled the go-ahead jumper with 36 seconds left. "For whatever reason, (Bucks 7-footer) Ervin Johnson was talking with his team about where he was going to tip the ball to," Van Horn said. "So I just kind of knew where the ball was going and I just kind of stepped in there and get it. Those little plays make all the difference." "I just shot with a lot of confidence," said Iverson, who was just 9-of-25 from the field. "It was good that Keith came up with the jump ball. I just tried to shoot it in a rhythm." After Milwaukee's Ray Allen missed an open 3-pointer, Skinner rebounded and was fouled. He sank both free throws for a 93-90 lead with 16 seconds remaining, and Snow and Iverson each made free throws to offset a 3-pointer by former Sixer Toni Kukoc. Aaron McKie scored 18 points and Van Horn added 16 for Philadelphia, which overcame 36 percent shooting and 22 turnovers with a 58-35 advantage on the glass. MacCulloch had a career-high 14 rebounds, Skinner added 13 and Snow and Van Horn added eight apiece. "We really just tried to pound it," Van Horn said. "That was a big key to our success." "I had a lot of talks with coach Brown and the assistants," said Skinner, who was signed as a free agent when Coleman underwent knee surgery. "They told me what they wanted, I told them what I wanted, we came to a compromise and worked on that." Allen scored 28 points and Kukoc added 18 for Milwaukee, which stayed close by making 10-of-24 3-pointers but lost its opening road game of the season for the first time since November 1, 1991. "We had opportunities at the end, but the offensive boards at the other end was a momentum-killer," Allen said. The Sixers have beaten the Bucks four straight times. "They've all been close and we've won some, but they've won a lot down the stretch, like tonight," said Bucks coach George Karl. Three free throws by Iverson gave Philadelphia an 89-81 lead with 4:40 to play. But Kukoc threw in a hook, Sam Cassell completed a three-point play and Allen drilled a 3-pointer to tie it with 2:42 left. Former Sixer Tim Thomas made a free throw with 59 seconds left to give Milwaukee its last lead. The Sixers led by 11 points in the first quarter, but a reverse layup by Michael Redd gave the Bucks a 38-37 edge midway through the second. Philadelphia led 53-47 at halftime, but Milwaukee again rallied for a 60-59 lead on a 3-pointer by Cassell, who scored 17 points. McKie and Van Horn had 3-pointers in a 14-2 surge that gave the Sixers a 73-63 bulge with 1:46 left in the third quarter. Snow had 12 points and seven assists and MacCulloch scored 10 points. Redd scored 11 for Milwaukee.
