Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Larry Brown's starting backcourt disappeared - along with his hopes of a triumphant return to the Wachovia Center. Allen Iverson scored 30 points and helped get Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton in foul trouble as the Philadelphia 76ers won the first meeting with their former coach, a 90-86 victory over the Detroit Pistons. Brown coached against the 76ers for the first time since signing with the Pistons, who won a matchup between the teams in last year's Eastern Conference semifinals. He was booed by the crowd, despite spending six successful campaigns in Philadelphia that included a trip to the NBA Finals in 2001. "He's the enemy now," Iverson said. "I honestly feel that the people that are loyal fans of the Philadelphia 76ers understand what he's done for this organization, what he's done for the city of Philadelphia. Everybody appreciates that, but he's still the enemy." Philadelphia players were more cordial as Iverson, guards Eric Snow and Aaron McKie and centers Derrick Coleman and Samuel Dalembert hugged Brown before the opening tip. "The beginning of the game made it for me," Brown said. "I don't know if ever I've been more moved in a game. People that mean something to me really extended themselves. From that standpoint, it doesn't get any better than that for me. What those players did to me before the game ... it brings closure to a lot of stuff." "Coach Brown means an awful lot to all of us around here," said Sixers coach Randy Ayers, who was an assistant under Brown. "I just wish him nothing but the best." Iverson helped neutralize Detroit's high-scoring backcourt as Hamilton and Billups played limited minutes before fouling out in the fourth quarter. "It hurt us with Chauncey and Rip in foul trouble," Brown said. "Rip played great, but unfortunately, he didn't play a lot and Chauncey the same. But you know you have to keep in mind they have to guard Allen." "It's tough to be aggressive defensively when you have two or three early fouls, and I thought that is what hurt both of those individuals tonight," Ayers said. "They've got a great backcourt. Maybe it took some of their aggressiveness away from them when they got the early fouls." While the Pistons struggled to find their offense, the 76ers caught fire, making six straight shots to take the lead. Iverson began the stretch with a jumper at 7:12, bringing Philadelphia within 76-74. He took advantage of a late defensive mismatch, giving the Sixers the lead for good, 80-78, on a jumper over Tayshaun Prince with 5:11 left. Iverson stripped Billups, leading to a dunk by Coleman, before burying another jumper with 3:46 to go for an 84-78 cushion. Hamilton fouled out with 3:59 left and Billups picked up his sixth foul less than a minute later. The Pistons faltered down the stretch without their key playmakers, making just two baskets in the final 6:15. Detroit managed to stay within striking distance, but Philadelphia's John Salmons sealed the win with 24 seconds left, burying a fallaway jumper as the shot clock expired for an 88-83 edge. Kenny Thomas had 15 points and 13 rebounds and Snow added 13 points and eight assists as the Sixers avoided a season-high third straight loss. Hamilton had 19 points and Billups finished with 15 for the Pistons, who have lost two of three following a four-game winning streak. Iverson scored 11 points on 5-of-5 shooting in the second quarter, when Philadelphia led by as many as 15. But Detroit scored the final seven points of the first half and made 9-of-14 shots in the third period to take a 71-69 edge.
