Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Aaron McKie and Allen Iverson handed the New York Knicks another fourth-quarter fold. McKie and Iverson fueled a 41-point final period as the Philadelphia 76ers came roaring back for a 98-86 victory over the winless Knicks, who blew another big lead. McKie had an excellent all-around game with 22 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and five steals in 38 minutes. He kept the 76ers barely in the contest until Iverson finally shook out of his shooting slump. "It didn't look good, but being in this game, in professional sports, you hang in there," McKie said. "You continue to do the things that you set out to do from the beginning, and hopefully it'll start to work for you. You don't go away from it." "If it wasn't for him, we would have been shooting in the 20s. He's been great," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "Tonight we were shorthanded and he was incredible. I don't know how you could play any better than he played. Five steals, seven assists, 13 rebounds, he gets 22 points on 13 shots. That the stat I always look at." The three-time scoring champion, Iverson was 16-of-50 from the field in the first two games and 6-of-23 through three quarters in this one. But he made his first six shots in the final period as Philadelphia caught New York, then pulled away. Iverson scored 15 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter. McKie contributed 10, plus a handful of key plays in the final period, as the Sixers outscored the Knicks, 41-17. "They must have got tired," McKie said. "I don't know too many teams that give up 41 points in the fourth quarter, that's tough. We'll take it." It was the second straight collapse for the Knicks, who squandered a double-digit lead and were outscored, 26-12, in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's 86-77 loss at Detroit. En route to a 30-52 record last season, New York lost 16 games in which it blew double-digit leads. "We have the lead and you do everything possible not to hold the lead," Knicks guard Allan Houston said. "Sooner or later, you gotta learn. You take positives in that you were in the game and you gave yourself a chance and we were up. But sooner or later, you gotta learn. There's no other way to put it. That's it." Keith Van Horn had 17 points and 12 rebounds for Philadelphia, which has won two in a row at home after losing its opener at Orlando. Kurt Thomas scored 25 points and Houston added 23 for New York, which has not won here since December 20, 2000. Thomas scored 15 points in the third quarter, when the Knicks opened a 62-45 lead before settling for a 69-57 advantage entering the final period. In a 9-0 spurt that opened the fourth quarter, McKie had a basket, free throw and a steal that sprung Iverson for a layup. "We got into playing tougher defense, rotating a little faster, just trying to do some little traps in there and it worked for us," McKie said. "It turned the whole game around." A jumper by Thomas made it 71-66, but Van Horn hit a 3-pointer, and another steal by McKie led to Iverson's tying layup with 7:39 to go. There were two ties and five lead changes over the next three minutes before McKie's two free throws gave Philadelphia the lead for good at 80-79 with 4:31 left. "He just adds a lot to this team," Iverson said. "I think more than his physical ability, the mental aspects of the game, (he) is up there with the best." Iverson made a runner and McKie had a jumper between four points by Houston, keeping the Sixers in front. Another 3-pointer by Van Horn triggered a 14-0 run that featured a driving three-point play by McKie off a steal by Iverson for a 93-83 lead with 1:13 to play. Brian Skinner swept 10 boards for the Sixers, who overcame 40.5 percent shooting with a 51-40 edge on the glass. Iverson made just 12-of-30 shots. Charlie Ward scored 11 points and Howard Eisley had nine assists for the Knicks, who committed 33 fouls. "We just have to finish. That's the bottom line," Knicks coach Don Chaney said. In a game like that - especially when you're on the road - you have to make shots, and you've got to take care of the ball. We didn't do that late." Even with Iverson struggling, Philadelphia held a 36-30 lead late in the second quarter before New York closed the half with a 9-2 surge. It continued in the third quarter behind Thomas, who powered a 23-7 run that gave the Knicks their largest lead. "They were doing simple basketball - pick-and-roll, pop 'em," McKie said. "They were making shots, and we were missing."
