Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- With the Philadelphia 76ers facing the prospect of their first three-game slide in more than two months, Allen Iverson took matters into his own hands. Iverson scored 14 of his 32 points in the third quarter as the 76ers pulled away in the second half for a 112-95 victory over the lowly Toronto Raptors. Iverson said the Sixers were motivated by coach Larry Brown's fiery halftime speech. "Coach really got on us at half," Iverson said. "He got on everybody and just wanted us to respond. We played better defense (in the second half) and started helping each other on the court." Philadelphia allowed an average of 113.5 points in consecutive losses to Detroit and Atlanta and continued to struggle defensively against the Raptors, allowing 58 points in the first half. But the Sixers hit their last six shots in the second quarter to cut a nine-point deficit to 58-55 at intermission before Iverson took over in the third period. He keyed an 8-0 spurt that gave Philadelphia the lead for good with strong play on both ends of the court. After hitting a baseline jumper to make it 75-71, Iverson dove for a loose ball near midcourt and flipped a pass over his head for Aaron McKie, who scored on a driving layup. "Yeah, just the hustle plays," Brown said. "Allen diving - I mean, we did a lot of great things, and that's how we have to play, with that intensity all the time." Iverson's finger roll capped the spurt and gave Philadelphia a 79-71 lead with three minutes left. "I feel a lot better about my game," Iverson said. "I've been searching for it and hopefully I found it. I played well today." Iverson continued to torment Toronto, averaging 30 points in 23 career games against the Raptors. When asked to explain Iverson's success against the Raptors, Toronto's Vince Carter said, "Bacause he's good. Maybe he likes to play against Toronto." The Sixers pounded the ball inside in the third quarter, outscoring the Raptors, 16-4, in points in the paint. They also forced seven turnovers in the period while committing only one. "I think we have to be more conscious of our turnovers because we played well in the first half, rotating the ball and finding the open people, but in the second half we were a different team," Carter said. Philadelphia led by as many as 18 points in the fourth quarter and improved to 16-4 since the All-Star break, matching San Antonio for the best record during than span. The Sixers avoided their first three-game slide since a season-high six-game losing streak from January 2-12. "We weren't aggressive enough on defense (in the first half)," Sixers forward Tyrone Hill said. "Coach came in at halftime and pretty much told us how he felt. I think we took into a situation where we have to go there and play. We're going to win games playing defense and everything else is secondary." Philadelphia forward Derrick Coleman took six stitches after being accidently elbowed above his left eye by Toronto's Mamadou N'diaye with 1:12 left in the first quarter. He returned in the second period and chipped in 13 points. Carter recorded 22 points and a season-high nine assists for the Raptors, who have dropped nine of their last 11. "Our intensity is there," Toronto center Antonio Davis said. We're just not playing smart basketball right now. I don't think you can blame anyone for it." Philadelphia went 4-0 against Toronto this season, completing their first sweep since the 1999-2000 campaign. Entering this season, the Sixers were just 3-6 in their previous nine games against the Raptors. Toronto opened a 52-43 lead on Alvin Williams' jumper with three minutes left in the second period, but the Sixers closed the half with a 12-6 spurt, pulling within 58-55 on Iverson's jumper with one second to go. The Sixers shot 56 percent (44-of-78) from the field and had seven players score in double figures. Keith Van Horn contributed 12 points, while Eric Snow was one of three players with 11 points and also handed out 11 assists. Voshon Lenard contributed 19 points for the Raptors, who shot 47 percent (37-of-79).
