Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- On a holiday honoring a man known for forward thinking, the Philadelphia 76ers rode their forwards to a win. Kenny Thomas had 21 points and 15 rebounds and Corliss Williamson added 16 points off the bench as the 76ers built a huge lead and held on for a 95-91 victory over the shorthanded New Orleans Hornets. Allen Iverson scored 29 points for the 76ers (17-20), who nearly squandered a 25-point fourth-quarter lead in the Martin Luther King Day matinee but moved into a three-way tie for first place in the weak Atlantic Division. "I'll take it. It doesn't matter if we win by 30 or we win by one point," Iverson said. "That's been our ultimate goal - just get to first place and win the Atlantic. We moved a step closer, but we still got a long way to go." Thomas registered his third straight double-double. He made 6-of-7 shots and scored 15 points in the first quarter, when Philadelphia took the lead for good. Williamson scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting in the second period, leading a strong effort by Philadelphia's bench that pushed a three-point edge to 59-42 at halftime. "The hardest thing was coming out today because it was an early game," Thomas said. "Corliss and I did come out and get to a good start. I was trying to get some energy and all of a sudden, I was making shots and I got it going." "Kenny had the hot hand that started us off in the first quarter. I got into the game and got some looks inside," Williamson said. "Our teammates recognized that we had something going and they continued to give us the ball." Thomas and Williamson combined to make 15-of-25 shots and 7-of-7 free throws while grabbing 18 boards. The rest of the Sixers made just 17-of-58 shots. "They are two guys that have been playing the same position," Sixers coach Jim O'Brien said. "Corliss has been playing so well and I have so much trust in him that I need to find out ways to make sure he is on the court without jeopardizing Kenny Thomas' minutes. ... I have a lot of confidence in both Corliss and Kenny to get the job done for us." Iverson made a 3-pointer to open the fourth quarter and give the Sixers their largest lead at 82-57. But Philadelphia missed nine straight shots and committed four turnovers while New Orleans went on a 17-0 run to close to 82-74 with over five minutes to play. "A lot of guys have pride and they don't want to come in here and get blown out," Iverson said. "They played bad for three quarters, then they played well for one." Williamson answered with a three-point play and Iverson - who made just 8-of-28 shots - added a pair of buckets to stabilize matters. The Sixers made 6-of-6 free throws in the final 11 seconds to fight off the feisty Hornets. "It was nice to get a shot like that to fall, get fouled and get some momentum like that," Williamson said. "Sometimes you got to do things like that. When you're in a drought like that, you've got to find a way out of it. We were able to get a lucky shot." Lee Nailon scored 23 points, Dan Dickau added 16 and P.J. Brown 14 and 14 rebounds for the league-worst Hornets (5-32), who were without injured All-Star guard Baron Davis. "At this time of year, it's hard to take a moral victory out of anything," Dickau said. "I guess coming back feels good in a way, but we dug ourselves way too big a hole." Thomas had a three-point play, a jumper, two free throws and a running hook in a three-minute span to help Philadelphia open a 26-16 lead late in the first period. New Orleans closed to 33-30 early in the second period before two 3-pointers by Kyle Korver rebuilt the lead to 41-32. Williamson took charge with nine points in 93 seconds as the lead ballooned to 51-36 with 3:43 to go. "I'm glad that we had the opportunity to play and use that as a celebration," Williamson said. "To have the kids come out and be part of what is going on is something that Dr. King would be proud of."
