Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- On "Tattoo Night" at the Pyramid, the man with the most ink in the building left an indelible mark on the Memphis Grizzlies. Allen Iverson scored 33 points and led a fourth-quarter surge as the Philadelphia 76ers averted an embarrassing loss with a 95-88 victory over the winless Grizzlies. Any fan with a tattoo coming to Wednesday's contest had a chance to win tickets to a future game. The promotion was tied to Iverson, the three-time NBA scoring champion whose collection of body art grows with each new season and covers nearly all of his slender body. But tattoos are a symbol of toughness, and Iverson is among the toughest players in the league. After taking a whack on the right thumb he badly sprained less than two weeks ago, he scored 17 of Philadelphia's last 26 points. "I was just trying to take what the defense gave me," Iverson said. "I didn't want to be overaggressive. I just wanted to let my teammates do what they had to do early in the game because they (Grizzlies) were taking away some of the shots I wanted by zoning up. My teammates held the fort, and then when I got an opportunity, I just tried to make the best of it." Iverson made 10-of-24 shots, including 4-of-7 3-pointers. He added six assists and three steals and confounded the Grizzlies with his quickness. The 76ers never trailed over the last three quarters but played fast and loose with the lead until Iverson took charge in the fourth quarter, when he scored 11 points. "Allen got it going and fortunately made some shots against their zone and we were able to build a lead," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "I thought Iverson had a rifle instead of his hand," Grizzlies coach Hubie Brown said. "He was spectacular." Todd MacCulloch had 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Sixers, who had all five starters score in double figures and moved back into a first-place tie in the Atlantic Division. The Grizzlies fell to 0-12, the worst start since the 1997-98 Denver Nuggets lost their first dozen games en route to an 11-71 campaign. The record is 17, set by the 1988 Miami Heat and matched by the 1999 Los Angeles Clippers. "You don't underestimate anybody," Iverson said. "When you're playing a team that's 0-11, you play them the same way you play a team that's 11-0. That's what keeps you consistent." Rookie Drew Gooden scored 21 points and Stromile Swift added 12, a career-high 16 rebounds and a franchise-record eight blocks for Memphis, which has lost all four games under Hubie Brown. "We did a lot of good things, but we are not happy," Hubie Brown said. "We are not happy with the choppiness. We couldn't get a streak. When players were open, they didn't knock the shots down." Iverson was hit on his thumb by Kings guard Jason Williams, who later left with a sprained foot. Upon his return, Iverson missed two free throws but followed with consecutive 3-pointers before Aaron McKie hit a jumper, giving Philadelphia a 75-63 lead entering the final period. "Coach said, `Well, if you got hit on your thumb, maybe your shot will start falling down,'" Iverson said. "Fortunately, it did. I hit those two shots, and we kind of got the momentum going into the fourth quarter." "It's always big when you've got somebody making threes and you're on a run," teammate Eric Snow said. The Grizzlies pecked away and got within 77-70 on a 3-pointer by Wesley Person with 9:23 to play, but Iverson answered with a jumper. A layup by Earl Watson made it 81-74, but Snow drove for a hoop and Iverson made a leaning 3-pointer that beat the shot clock and built the lead to 86-74 with six minutes to go. Iverson had a streaking reverse layup and fed Snow for a layup and a 92-80 bulge with 2:56 left. Snow scored 14 points, McKie added 12 and Keith Van Horn 10 for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (35-of-80). Reserve Brian Skinner had 10 rebounds. Pau Gasol scored 14 points for the Grizzlies, who shot under 40 percent (33-of-84). They did have 15 blocks. The Sixers took the lead for good at 26-24 on Skinner's steal and layup late in the first quarter. Iverson scored six points in a 13-4 run that widened the advantage to 39-28 with 7:32 left in the second period. Philadelphia held a 54-46 halftime lead as Iverson scored 16 points.
