Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson was just as dangerous a passer as he was a scorer. Iverson scored 24 points and handed out a season-high 12 assists as the Philadelphia 76ers overcame a shaky second quarter for a 108-101 victory over the Chicago Bulls, who lost their ninth straight road game. A three-time scoring champion, the offensively aggressive Iverson has been more of a complete player this season. He has improved his defense and playmaking and is averaging 9.4 assists in his last seven games, collecting a dozen twice in that span. "I just think he is playing basketball and it's really neat to see," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "When your guards are unselfish ... it makes everyone else better. It makes guys want to run on the break and set good screens. It's a good feeling in that respect." "I've heard coach say that before and that's a great feeling," Iverson said. "When he says that I'm playing my best basketball, he's seeing me play, and he is seeing it year after year. Obviously, I'm getting better because I have the utmost respect for him as a person and as a coach. It makes me want to get better and work harder. I just want to keep it that way." In the fourth quarter, Iverson had consecutive sensational passes, leading to baskets that gave Philadelphia an 89-76 lead with 6:47 remaining. He answered a 3-pointer by Donyell Marshall with a jumper to keep the lead at 94-86 with 3:19 left. After Jalen Rose hit a 3-pointer to make it a five-point game, Iverson found a cutting Eric Snow for a layup - his only basket of the game - and a foul with 2:36 to go. Snow's free throw capped the three-point play, and Kenny Thomas threw in a hook after a steal by Iverson to seal it at 99-89 with 2:15 left. Keith Van Horn scored 20 points and Thomas added 16 and 14 rebounds for the 76ers, who shot 54 percent (38-of-70) from the field and improved to 20-5 since the All-Star break as they opened a four-game homestand. "We really focused on moving the ball around and finding the open guy," Van Horn said. "I think we did a much better job of just distributing the ball. That in turn helped our transition defense and it didn't allow them to get easy baskets on the break." Philadelphia (45-29) moved within one-half game of New Jersey for the Atlantic Division lead and two games of Detroit for the best record in the Eastern Conference. Rookie Jay Williams had 23 points and eight assists for the Bulls, who fell to a league-worst 3-36 on the road. "If anything, it's going to make us really sit down and look into ourselves this summer and try to get better so we can try to become a better team," Williams said. "We have to find a way to get one of the next two on the road so we can go into next season knowing that we can win on the road," Bulls forward Donyell Marshall said. "Right now we don't have the confidence we need to get." The Sixers played without center Derrick Coleman (thigh bruise), while the Bulls were without forward Tyson Chandler (throat infection). The Sixers missed eight straight shots at the end of the second quarter and committed four turnovers early in the third period, putting themselves in a 59-51 hole. But they turned things around with a trapping defense energized by Snow and reserves Brian Skinner and Greg Buckner. "That lineup with Buckner, Kenny and Brian, that really got us going," Brown said. "It got us the energy. Buck does that. I haven't played him enough. He's given us a lot of energy." While Philadelphia was holding Chicago to one basket in eight minutes, Snow had six free throws and set up Skinner and Buckner for easy hoops. Iverson's free throws capped the 19-3 surge and gave the Sixers a 70-62 lead with 3:23 to go. Van Horn's 3-pointer opened the final period and gave Philadelphia an 81-68 lead. A jumper by Williams cut the deficit to 85-76, but Iverson lobbed one to Van Horn for an alley-oop dunk, then hooked a pass to McKie for a layup. "I think he's growing up as a player," Brown said. "He's seeing things in games, he knows how to deal with double-teams, and I think he recognizes when you're the best player, the ball always has a tendency to come back to you. "Even if it's late in the clock, it's going to find its way back into his hands. You can't have a fear of giving the ball up early." Iverson made 8-of-14 shots and 8-of-12 free throws, adding three steals. "I'm not changing anything," Iverson said. "I'm just playing basketball and trying to take whatever the defense gives me. When my guys are open and they have good looks, I'm just trying to get them the ball. I'm just trying to play the right way." Skinner scored 14 points, McKie added 12 and Snow nine for the Sixers, who forced 22 turnovers, converting them into 30 points. Eddie Curry scored 19 points and Marshall added 18 and 11 rebounds for the Bulls, who shot 51 percent (38-of-74), including 7-of-10 from the arc, but fell to 0-3 against Philadelphia this season. Van Horn scored 10 of Philadelphia's first 12 points and had a dozen in the first quarter, helping the Sixers to a 35-24 lead. But Williams scored nine points in a 20-5 run that closed the first half, including a 3-pointer that provided a 53-49 halftime lead. "We had trouble against the zone, we couldn't make a shot," Brown said. "I was shocked that they went out of the zone in the third quarter."
