Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Even without Allen Iverson, the Philadelphia 76ers kept their guards up. Aaron McKie and Eric Snow combined for 38 points and lifted the shorthanded 76ers to their season-high third straight victory, a 78-76 triumph over the Detroit Pistons. Iverson, the NBA's leading scorer at 29.4 points per game, did not make the trip due to a sore right knee he aggravated Friday in Miami. With the Sixers playing just one game in seven days, coach Randy Ayers opted to rest his superstar and hope for the best. McKie, the 2001 Sixth Man Award winner, started for Iverson and scored 21 points. The former Piston scored 10 points in the third quarter to help the Sixers widen their lead, then made a pair of jumpers on consecutive possessions down the stretch. "That's pretty much been the story for us over the last three years - banged up, injuries, we just have to go with what we've got," said McKie, who made 9-of-16 shots. "We can't continue to make excuses or wait until we get healthy; we just have to go out and play." Snow, the starting point guard, became a scorer as well, collecting 17 points and seven assists. With offense at a premium, his 20-footer with 1:04 to go gave Philadelphia a 77-72 advantage. "With Allen out, we have to be a more defensive team because scoring is tougher," Snow said. "We put a premium on slowing the game down and when you do that, most of the time the defense is able to set it up and you're a better defensive team." "They seem to do that when they need to step up," Ayers said. "Aaron becomes a little bit more aggressive offensively and even Eric does as well. They made the right plays at the right time." Detroit had a chance to tie the game, but the 6-5 McKie blocked 7-footer Mehmet Okur's jumper as time expired. "It just so happened that he wasn't even my man," McKie said. "I just saw him coming over there open, so I switched off because there was only eight-tenths of a second." Plagued by injuries all season, the Sixers (12-10) moved two games over .500 for the first time this year. Pistons coach Larry Brown lost to his previous team for the second time in as many meetings this season. "We've got to be a little more focused and beat teams up," said Pistons forward Ben Wallace, who was held below 10 rebounds (nine) for just the fifth time this season. "Instead, we're letting teams walk all over us. They had injured players and they didn't have all their guns, and we just laid down for them. You might think they would lay down, but it was us that laid down. We can't do that. We've got to fight." Chauncey Billups scored 29 points and Richard Hamilton added 15 for the Pistons, who trailed by nine points midway through the final period but closed to 71-68 on a layup by Wallace with 3:11 to go. McKie answered with a turnaround jumper. After Hamilton made two free throws, McKie barely beat the shot clock with a fadeaway jumper over Wallace, one of the best shot-blockers in the league, for a 75-70 lead with 1:37 left. "We appreciate (McKie), but I don't think some people realize how valuable a guy like him is," Snow said. After Tayshaun Prince sank two foul shots, Snow showed his value with a straightaway jumper to restore the five-point lead. Despite a turnover and missed jumper by Snow, the Sixers held on. "The only time I'm nervous is when I'm not in the game," Snow said. "You don't get to the playoffs every year and get to the Finals without experiencing that. We've been there and now it's time for our young guys to experience that and they're doing a great job." Second-year guard John Salmons had 12 points and seven rebounds. Third-year center Samuel Dalembert had six points and 10 boards. Detroit had 14 blocks - four each by Prince and Okur - but shot a season-low 37 percent (28-of-75). It has lost two straight home games. "People have been asking us since day one, when that rhythm is going to come, and I don't know the answer," Hamilton said. "I just know there's no way we can win playing the way we're playing. The last two games have been very disappointing. This isn't us."
