Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- When Aaron McKie came alive in the second half, so did the Philadelphia 76ers. McKie scored all 12 of his points in an early third-quarter burst and the 76ers held on for their season-high sixth straight victory, a 106-99 triumph over the hapless Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers have lost 13 straight games, matching Memphis for the longest slide in the NBA this season. They also have dropped 14 in a row to Philadelphia dating to April 2, 1999. Despite a rare sub-par game in Cleveland, Allen Iverson scored 29 points and made a pair of clutch steals in the final two minutes, preventing the Sixers from blowing a 19-point lead. Iverson came in averaging nearly 33 points in nine career visits to Gund Arena but made just 10-of-26 shots. McKie missed all four of his shots in the first half, which ended with the 76ers trailing, 51-47. But he made five straight shots during a 20-5 run that opened the third quarter and gave Philadelphia a 67-54 lead. "That's the best we've played all year," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We passed the ball and that was about as unselfish a play that we've had. ... We made the extra pass and it was as good as it gets. That's the right way to play." McKie had a layup, two jumpers and two 3-pointers. He also had a pair of steals, including one that led to a layup by Iverson that capped the five-minute flurry. "Shots started to fall for me and I got some clean looks," McKie said. Philadelphia built the lead to 19 points and still held a 93-75 advantage before Cleveland rallied behind three rookies, including sensational guard Dajaun Wagner. His deep 3-pointer answered one by Iverson and cut the deficit to 98-94 with 2:34 to go. Rookie Carlos Boozer, who had 15 points and 11 rebounds, scored between a pair of misses by Iverson, and the Cavs had a chance to tie when Zydrunas Ilgauskas was fouled. But he missed both free throws. The rebound went out of bounds off Philadelphia, but Iverson stole the inbounds pass and went all the way for a soaring finger roll and a four-point lead with 1:24 left. On the next possession, Iverson slapped the ball away from Ilgauskas, dove for it and called timeout. He made two free throws at the other end for a 102-96 advantage with 1:01 to play. "I think the guy overthrew a pass and I was able to get it and score a layup," Iverson said. "The second I just saw the guy turning back to make a pass and I was able to get it." Playing in his third NBA game, Wagner scored 29 points on 11-of-26 shooting. He was matched up against his teenage idol in Iverson, who gave him a hug after the game. "I just went out and played," said Wagner, who grew up in Camden, New Jersey, not far from Philadelphia. "I have admired Allen all my life. I have been watching him play since I was young. I have been around him for a long time." "That's my man," Iverson said. "It goes deeper than just basketball. He has a great family. They're real supportive of him, and I am as well. I wanted him to play real well." Both coaches also were impressed with Wagner's play. "He's beginning to show you what he's capable of doing," Cavs coach John Lucas said. "I love him," Brown said. "He's a great kid and it was a phenomenal (draft) selection because he has character and is very coachable and wants to get better." Keith Van Horn had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Todd MacCulloch added 16 and 12 for Philadelphia (13-4), which improved to 4-4 on the road. Ilgauskas had 21 points and nine boards for the Cavs, who have not won since November 5 against the Los Angeles Lakers. At 2-15, they have the worst record in the NBA. Cleveland looked sharp in the first half, jumping to an early nine-point lead before settling for a 26-21 advantage after one period as Wagner scored 10 points. Despite Iverson missing all four of his shots in the second period, Philadelphia briefly took the lead at 34-33 on a 3-pointer by Van Horn. Iverson made his first two shots in the third quarter before McKie caught fire. "Everything was clicking at that point," Iverson said. "It seemed like at one point we couldn't do anything wrong. Everything started rolling." Eric Snow had 14 points, nine assists and four blocks for the Sixers, who shot 45 percent (40-of-89) and committed just 10 turnovers. McKie had five steals. Former Sixers Tyrone Hill had 11 points and nine boards for the Cavs, who shot 46 percent (39-of-85) and held a 52-38 advantage on the glass but committed 19 turnovers.
