Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Season highs from Keith Van Horn and Eric Snow prevented the Philadelphia 76ers from experiencing another low. Van Horn scored 33 points and Snow added 21 as the 76ers blew an 18-point lead before recovering for a 104-99 victory over the Miami Heat, who have lost eight straight road games. Van Horn made 11-of-19 shots - including four 3-pointers - as he fell two points shy of his career high. He scored 13 points in the first quarter as Philadelphia raced to a big early lead. "I've been trying to draw fouls and get guys up in the air instead of trying to shoot over people," said Van Horn, who made 7-of-9 free throws. "I just try to go into their body and get to the foul line. That's helped me get into a nice shooting rhythm and get me going offensively. That's something I've consciously been doing. It's been working and I kind of wish I had been doing a little bit of that earlier." Snow did most of his damage from the foul line, where he made 13-of-14 shots. He made seven free throws in the final five minutes to help the 76ers pull away after the Heat had rallied to tie the game. "I don't think I took any more shots that I normally take," said Snow, who made 4-of-11 shots and had six assists. "I think I just got to the line a little more. It's probably more important for Keith to come out and make a conscious effort to be more aggressive and assertive than me offensively. I think I need to do it, but I still to a certain extent have to try to get everybody involved." Van Horn and Snow scored four points each in an 8-0 burst that gave Philadelphia the lead for good at 91-83 with 3:26 remaining. Miami got no closer than five points thereafter. The duo picked up the slack for Allen Iverson, who scored an unspectacular 25 points on 8-of-22 shooting with sloppy play punctuated by five turnovers. The All-Star guard has knee bursitis and is day-to-day. "Allen banged his knee and I don't know if he'll play on Sunday (at Minnesota)," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "He played through it." Philadelphia came in with losses in eight of its last nine home games but beat Miami for the second time in a week. "Our confidence is good right now," Van Horn said. "We still have some improving to do. I think we know that. If we can continue to play hard and give this kind of effort, we can pull out wins." Eddie Jones scored 22 points and rookie Caron Butler added 18 for the Heat, who have not won on the road since New Year's Day against Atlanta. They fell to 0-3 against the Sixers this season. "It's frustrating to be in games and to lose in the final two minutes of the game," Jones said. "It's frustrating to fight back and to lose down the stretch." A 3-pointer by Jones opened the fourth quarter, pushed him past 10,000 points for his career and cut the deficit to 76-75. The Heat tied it on three occasions, the last time at 83-83 on two free throws by Butler with 5:44 to go. Van Horn dunked off a lob from rookie John Salmons. Butler missed at the other end and was baited by Snow into a backcourt foul that put Miami over the limit at the 5:10 mark. "I knew that if they fouled, we were shooting free throws," Snow said. "The way the game was going, it was proven once we got to the free throw line, we were able to set our defense, get their calls and we seemed to play them a little better in transition." Snow made two free throws, then two more a minute later. He penetrated and found Van Horn for a hook to cap the decisive surge. "Keith Van Horn played the way we expected him to play when we got him in the trade," Iverson said. "He's been playing well all season, but this was one of the games where he exploded." Miami pulled within 93-88, but Aaron McKie made a corner jumper with 1:39 left. At 96-90, Snow sank two free throws with 41 seconds to play. And at 98-93, Iverson sank two from the line to seal it. Brian Skinner scored 12 points and McKie added eight and eight rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (33-of-75) and made 34-of-44 free throws, both season highs. Malik Allen scored 14 points and Brian Grant added 12 and nine boards for the Heat, who shot 42 percent (33-of-78). "Fundamentally, we're not sound," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "We got to be strong, make good passes and we got to catch the ball. It was 83-83 and we have an opportunity to win a game on the road and we game them 21 points in the last five minutes." Snow scored six points in an 11-2 surge that opened the second quarter and gave the Sixers their largest lead at 44-26 with 7:31 remaining. Iverson returned just over a minute later, but Philadelphia stalled as Miami got back in it. The Heat closed within six points before settling for a 57-47 halftime deficit. Jones scored 10 points in the third quarter, helping Miami inch within 76-72.
