Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Until Larry Hughes gets a handle on playing point guard, opponents are going to be able to handle the Washington Wizards. Hughes had an erratic performance at the point and the Wizards succumbed to the pressure of the Philadelphia 76ers, who remained unbeaten at home as they raced to a 100-84 victory. The 6-5 Hughes began his career in Philadelphia and occasionally played point guard before being traded to Golden State in 2000. The Warriors also tried him as a point guard without much success, but that did not stop the Wizards from signing him as a free agent and installing him as their point guard. Hughes had averaged 14.1 points as the Wizards went 5-1 in their last six games. But he struggled against Philadelphia, making just 1-of-8 shots and committing three of Washington's season-high 23 turnovers. "We were careless with the ball, like myself, for one," Hughes admitted. "They scrambled the game on us, which is what teams have been doing to us to get us out of our sets." "They came running up the floor to trap, and we lose our spacing," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "When a team presses us, we go too fast, instead of getting calmed down and moving the basketball." Wizards wings Jerry Stackhouse and Michael Jordan had five turnovers apiece as 76ers perimeter players Allen Iverson, Eric Snow, Aaron McKie and Greg Buckner used their quickness to take Washington out of its offense. "It stops them, gives us opportunities to get easy baskets and gets us into a rhythm," Snow said. "It puts pressure on them to make their shots tougher and makes them play against the shot clock." Iverson scored 28 points and had five steals and Keith Van Horn scored 23 points for the Sixers (7-3), who improved to 6-0 at home. The 76ers collected 14 steals - one shy of their season high - to their league-leading total. "The energy in this building is great because if we play the right way, they (fans) really seem to appreciate it and I think our guys really enjoy that," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "I give them a lot of credit; that's their strength," Collins said. "But knowing that, we can't be careless." Stackhouse scored 29 points and Jordan added 19 for Washington, which had been 3-0 in the second game of back-to-back contests. The Wizards trounced Miami by 30 points on Saturday. Stackhouse scored 12 points in the first quarter, when Washington committed seven turnovers. During a 17-3 surge midway through the second quarter, Philadelphia turned up the pressure and forced four more turnovers, including two bad passes by Hughes. "You can't dribble into the teeth of a trap and beat it with speed," Collins said. "You have to move the ball, and we didn't do that." Iverson, Snow, McKie and Buckner all had transition baskets during the surge, which Van Horn capped at 47-33 with a fast-break dunk with 3:45 left before halftime. "That's what's going to win games for us, defense and pressure," Van Horn said. "That's what built the lead for us and helped us sustain it." Snow's jumper gave the Sixers a 61-45 lead with 9:07 left in the third quarter. The Wizards cut the deficit to 75-68 entering the final period and inched within 77-73 on a jumper by Jordan with 9:42 left. The Sixers turned up the pressure again, triggering a clinching 18-5 spurt. Buckner scored six points and Van Horn and McKie had three-point plays for a 95-78 bulge with 2:59 left. "If we can do that with our speed that we have, getting the ball up and creating (offense), it would take a lot of pressure off our half-court offense," McKie said. Buckner scored a season-high 16 points, Snow added 11 and 12 assists and McKie had nine and six for the Sixers, who held a 40-28 advantage on the glass.
