Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Keith Van Horn is fitting in just fine with the Philadelphia 76ers. Van Horn made all four of his 3-pointers and scored a season-high 28 points to lead the 76ers to their fourth straight victory, a 108-84 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Van Horn and center Todd MacCulloch were acquired in the offseason blockbuster trade that sent center Dikembe Mutombo to New Jersey. Because MacCulloch had previously played in Philadelphia and Van Horn had been criticized by Nets teammates for his play in the 2002 NBA Finals, it was thought the veteran forward would have a hard time fitting in with the Sixers. However, it has been MacCulloch who has struggled somewhat while Van Horn has flourished, providing timely scoring and rebounding. Coming off Wednesaday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers in which he scored just eight points before fouling out, Van Horn bounced back nicely. "Last game, I knew I wasn't myself," Van Horn said. "I was coming off an ankle injury (in practice) and playing on one leg. My ankle has been feeling better, so I wanted to bounce back and have a strong game." Van Horn made 11-of-15 shots, including all four from the arc for the NBA's worst perimeter shooting team. He scored 16 points in the third quarter, when Philadelphia broke it open, building a 29-point lead. "That's what we got him here for, to play the way he played tonight and show the offensive skills that he was blessed with," star guard Allen Iverson said. "I was just happy to see him dominate like he did tonight." Iverson shook off a sprained thumb to add 17 points for the Sixers, who had six players in double figures and rested their starters for most of the final period. "I just thought if it felt all right I would give it a shot," Iverson said. "I never play for myself. I've played in a lot of games, so obviously I'm not doing it for myself; I'm doing it for the team." Philadelphia has beaten Cleveland 13 straight times. Ricky Davis scored 31 points for Cleveland, which has lost two in a row since Tuesday's surprising home win over the Los Angeles Lakers. "They (76ers) are a team that we want to be like in a year or two," Cavs coach John Lucas said. "They really defend and are very good. Our pressure didn't bother them one bit. In fact, they made us look like we are not as athletic as we are." The Sixers got a spark from reserve Greg Buckner late in the first quarter to take the lead for good. Buckner started an 11-2 spurt with a 3-pointer and had a steal to set up a breakaway dunk by Iverson to close the quarter and make it 22-15. "He's giving us life every time he comes in," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. Buckner had two free throws, a steal and an assist in an 8-0 burst that widened the lead to 38-27 midway through the second quarter. Van Horn took over from there, making a 3-pointer and layup in a 12-4 run that closed the first half and gave the Sixers a 53-37 bulge. In the third period, Van Horn was unstoppable. He had a trio of 3-pointers that pushed the margin to 75-51 with 7:46 left. He added a layup before getting loose for a pair of breakaway dunks that gave Philadelphia its largest lead at 93-64 with 1:38 to play. "I just tried to start running the floor and try to get me some easy buckets," Van Horn said. "We did a good job of passing the ball and moving the ball around and I was able to get into a nice rhythm offensively." "I don't go crazy with 3-pointers, but he can shoot," Brown said. "That's his game when he has time." Aaron McKie and reserve Brian Skinner scored 12 points each, Buckner added 11 and eight rebounds and Eric Snow 10 and 11 assists for the Sixers, who shot 47 percent (42-of-90), including 5-of-9 from the arc. Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 20 points, Jumaine Jones added 10 and fellow former Sixer Tyrone Hill swept 13 boards for the Cavs, who shot 44 percent (34-of-77) but committed 23 turnovers.
