Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks beat up Allen Iverson and beat back the Philadelphia 76ers. Holding Iverson to 2-of-21 shooting, the Knicks snapped a six-game losing streak and opened some breathing room in the playoff race with an 88-77 victory over the 76ers. Stephon Marbury scored 15 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter to put the finishing touches on the victory for New York, which won for the first time since February 17. But the Knicks won this game with their defense on Iverson. "We had a chance to practice and work on things," Knicks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Guys came out more aggressive tonight. This is the way we play defense here." A three-time scoring champion, Iverson repeatedly was swarmed on offense and run into picks on defense, spending a large portion of the game either on the floor or complaining to officials. He missed his last 18 shots. "I can't remember the last time I was struggling like that," said Iverson, whose only career game with less baskets was an 0-of-7 vs. Cleveland on April 2, 1999. "Not so much missing shots, I mean missing layups. Even the guys on the other team were asking me if I was all right. I couldn't understand it; it wasn't like me." Iverson traditionally has not played well at Madison Square Garden; none of his 50 career 40-point games have been here. But this was one of the worst performances of his eight-year career as he managed just 11 points, 16 below his average. "I was kind of getting frustrated, missing shots that I usually don't miss," Iverson said. "I just felt bad that I couldn't get my team a lift. I felt that I could come in and make things easier for them. I just couldn't get it done, for whatever reason." "We did a good job on Allen tonight and I tried to stay up on him the best I could, but he just missed shots," Marbury said. "It was just one of those nights for him." Tim Thomas had 16 points and 12 rebounds and fellow former Sixer Nazr Mohammed had 12 and 15 for New York, which held a 52-40 advantage on the glass. Marbury also handed out 10 assists. The Knicks (27-35) reclaimed sixth place in the weak Eastern Conference. The Sixers (24-37) dropped to 11th with their fifth loss in six games and are in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 1998. "It's a big win," Wilkens said. "It's a good win, because we didn't want to lose any ground. If anything, we have to create some distance between us and the teams behind us." "Philly is right there behind us, chasing us," Thomas said. "On the same note, we've been struggling of late. So for us, it was just a matter of getting the win by any means necessary." Kenny Thomas had 21 points and 11 rebounds and Samuel Dalembert added 19, 14 and four blocks for Philadelphia, which shot less than 36 percent (29-of-81) and fell to 0-2 against New York this season. Having missed the last four games with a sore shoulder, Iverson made two of his first three shots before bumping knees with Marbury late in the first quarter and taking a seat. "It only (hurt) a little while and then the pain was gone," Iverson said. "It had nothing to do with my shooting." Philadelphia missed 11 of its first 12 shots of the second period and fell behind, 40-26, on a 3-pointer by Marbury with 7:26 left. "Iverson had a lot of drives to the hoop and they just didn't go in," Sixers coach Chris Ford said. "You must remember he's missed the last four games. We didn't shoot the ball well again. We had that stretch in the second quarter where we just couldn't score." With Iverson struggling, the Sixers trailed, 66-54, entering the final period before rallying within 68-65 behind rookies Kyle Korver and Willie Green. Marbury took over from there, scoring on a drive, a 3-pointer and pull-up jumper in a 10-0 run that restored New York's double-digit lead.
