Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- In overtime, Jermaine O'Neal worked over the Philadelphia 76ers. O'Neal scored seven of his 17 points in overtime, including the game-winning basket with 1.6 seconds left, as the Indiana Pacers edged the slumping 76ers, 105-104. After scoring just 10 points in regulation, O'Neal took charge in the extra session. The All-Star fouled out 76ers forwards Derrick Coleman and Kenny Thomas, then simply overpowered Brian Skinner in the final two minutes. "We lost our two best interior defenders and it showed at the end of the game," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. O'Neal's turnaround jumper from the low post gave Indiana a 103-102 lead with 52 seconds to play. Eric Snow missed a driving shot but stripped O'Neal of the ball on the other end and passed to Allen Iverson, who was fouled by Reggie Miller and made two free throws with nine seconds left. After a timeout, the Pacers worked the ball to O'Neal on the right side. He backed down Skinner toward the baseline and flipped in a jump hook from about eight feet. "It was set up where if Reggie (Miller) was wide open, he could take the shot," said O'Neal, who made 5-of-11 shots and grabbed 13 rebounds. "But Reggie told me when we came out of the huddle that he was going to give it to me. That says a lot about my teammates ... especially after a tough night like I had shooting the ball. "It was a situation where they were going to defend me to the middle. I knew that if I got to the baseline, there was no way that anybody could help out and try to strip the ball away from me. I knew that I struggled with the jump shot tonight so the hook shot was the last thing I had in the arsenal." Philadelphia called timeout and got the ball to Keith Van Horn above the 3-point circle. With O'Neal flying at him, Van Horn's potential game-winner was a bit long, sending the Sixers to their sixth loss in seven games. There was only one second left," Sixers guard Eric Snow said. "We had a play for Allen coming up and coming back off, but Keith popped wide open." "(Van Horn's) got to want the ball," Brown said. "He had opportunities to shoot the ball late in the clock. What better guy would you have to shoot it? I'm glad that he took the last shot. That was on line." Al Harrington scored 28 points before fouling out and Reggie Miller scored 19 points for the Pacers, who snapped a two-game skid and completed a 2-2 road trip. "We have been in a lot of dogfights, on the road particularly, in the last couple of games in other people's buildings," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said. "I admire the courage that the guys have. They find a way every night to hang in the game, try to gut it out and to try to get the win. They never give up and they never concede. It is admirable to coach a team like this when the players are like this." Iverson scored 32 points and Derrick Coleman added 18 and a season-high 14 rebounds for the Sixers, who erased a 15-point third-quarter deficit but dropped to 13-3 at the First Union Center in the first game of a six-game homestand. "We dug a hole for ourselves in the first half," Iverson said. "We are singing the same songs again. We got down and then fought to get back. We used up so much energy that when it was winning time, we couldn't pull it out." Harrington scored 18 points in the first half as Indiana opened a 58-45 lead. A 3-pointer by Reggie Miller made it 69-54 with 6:47 left in the third quarter. By that time, Iverson was heating up after a slow first half. He scored 22 points in the quarter, including a fadeaway jumper that made it 71-68 with 4:02 to go. After the shot, he looked at defender Erick Strickland and said, "I'm on fire!" The Pacers led, 85-77, entering the fourth quarter, where the pace slowed for both teams. A layup by Strickland made it 96-91 with 1:15 left, but Thomas followed in a miss and Brad Miller missed at the other end 30 seconds later. Iverson took it into the lane and passed out to Snow, who found a wide-open Coleman at the top of the circle. His 3-pointer tied it with 23 seconds remaining. "It's just a play that we run called 'Clear Four,'" Coleman said. "You give it to Allen at the top and I know they are going to help on him, and he just kicks it to me and I have a wide-open shot." Coleman won a jump ball from Strickland and had a chance to win it after Iverson found him open in the left corner. But his 3-pointer bounded away as the horn sounded, and he fouled out 13 seconds into overtime. "That was a big part," Snow said. "He did well on Jermaine O'Neal. It's unfortunate we lost him early." A follow shot by Thomas and lane jumper by Iverson made it 102-99, but Thomas fouled out with 2:05 left. Iverson missed two free throws with 1:43 to play, and O'Neal split a pair on consecutive possessions before his jumper gave Indiana a 103-102 lead. "We have so many guys that are so effective on this team," O'Neal said. "To be given the opportunity late in the game, especially from Reggie Miller, who has made so many big shots coming off screens to win big games ... It means a lot to me when a guy like that does that for me." Strickland had 17 points and 10 assists as he started at point guard for Jamaal Tinsley. The Pacers shot 56 percent (40-of-72) but committed 21 turnovers. Van Horn had 13 points and nine rebounds, Thomas and Greg Buckner scored 12 points and Eric Snow added 11 for the Sixers, who shot 41.5 percent (39-of-94) but held a 46-37 edge on the glass, including 19-3 on the offensive end. Indiana is 2-0 against Philadelphia this season.
