Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers' road woes carried over to a place where they traditionally play well. Dirk Nowitzki had 18 of his 29 points in the first half as the Dallas Mavericks built a comfortable lead and cruised to a 102-83 triumph over the road-weary 76ers. Playing the final game of a six-game road stretch during which it went 1-5, Philadelphia had won five of its last six games in Dallas. But the league-leading Mavericks raced to a 19-9 lead early and were up, 39-24, just under two minutes into the second quarter. "Let us not forget that Philadelphia is on a long road trip and this is the last game of the trip, which is the toughest to play," Mavericks coach Don Nelson said. "Let's not get too full of ourselves and let's understand that they were tired. I'm very pleased with the effort." Philadelphia coach Larry Brown was hoping fatigue was the issue, but did not sound so sure. "I hope that's the case, but I honestly feel that we're not very good right now," Brown said. "It's my responsibility and the coaching staff. I haven't done a very good job. We can't guard anybody. "We get beat on penetration. Our first team's gotten down 15 points almost every first quarter, and Eric Snow's guarding everybody, by himself with the first team. If you can't guard, it's really a difficult situation. I've got to do a better job, bottom line." Snow did not feel that fatigue was an issue. "No factor at all," he said. "They played Thursday just like we did and had a day off." Snow also pointed out that Philadelphia was not even competitive in most of its recent road matchups. "It was awful," he said. "One out of five is one thing, but it's the way that you lose. You take away the Golden State and the (Los Angeles) Clippers game and we weren't close in three out of the five games." Michael Finley scored 18 points and Steve Nash added 16 for Dallas, which improved to 16-2 at home this season. Former 76er Shawn Bradley had 10 points, 11 rebounds and seven blocks for the Mavericks, who set a season high with 12 blocks. Allen Iverson led Philadelphia with 25 points. Nowitzi had five points and Nash four as Dallas opened the game with an 11-3 burst. Nowitzki found Bradley for a basket that put the Mavericks ahead, 19-9, with 6:50 left in the opening quarter. Iverson buried a 12-footer with 2:17 left to draw the 76ers within 27-22, but Finley and former Sixer Raja Bell had baskets 25 seconds apart. Nowitzki sank a long 3-pointer for a 34-24 lead after 12 minutes. Nowitzki scored the first five points of the second quarter and Dallas cruised thereafter. A basket by Bell with four seconds left in the half gave Dallas a 58-41 advantage. In the first half, Nowitzki was 7-of-12 from the field and Nash missed just one of five attempts as Dallas shot 58 percent (21-of-36). The Mavericks also were 14-of-15 from the foul line. Iverson scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting in the first half. The rest of the 76ers combined to make 32 percent (9-of-28). Philadelphia never got closer than 13 in the third quarter and trailed by as many as 23 late in the period. Dallas pushed its advantage to 25 in the final quarter and the 76ers never got closer than 18 over the final 12 minutes. "When they tried to make a run they couldn't really do it," Finley said. "I think mentally and physically they were really fatigued being on this road trip. We can't let them off because they were tired." The 76ers fell to 6-12 on the road this season. They made just 1-of-7 3-pointers, were outrebounded, 43-35, and saw their starters other than Iverson combine for just 30 points. "We just got our (butts) whipped on both ends of the court," Iverson said. "It wasn't just one aspect of the game. We couldn't stop them and we couldn't get the spurts we wanted to." The teams meet in Philadelphia on January 23.
