Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- With the Eastern Conference playoff picture tightening up, the Chicago Bulls tightened up their defense. The Bulls limited Allen Iverson to seven points in the second half and rallied in the fourth quarter for a 94-88 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers that snapped a four-game losing streak. Othella Harrington scored a season-high 24 points and rookie Ben Gordon added 22 for the Bulls (33-31), who opened some breathing room in the pursuit of their first postseason berth in seven years. "We just needed this win for our confidence," Harrington said. "It was just a complete team effort. The guys made plays when we needed them. Everybody did a great job tonight and it's going to take a great team effort from this point on." Chicago did it with defense, limiting Philadelphia to 33 points in the second half. The Bulls frustrated Iverson, the NBA's leading scorer who produced 31 points but made just 9-of-24 shots and committed 11 turnovers, including a pair down the stretch. "Allen had 24 at halftime and he ended up with 31," Bulls coach Scott Skiles said. "It wasn't that we were terrible on him in the first half. He's slippery, he's good and we had a little trouble with him. In the second half, we got back much better. We forced him into turnovers and we did an outstanding job on him." "People are going to talk about what they (Chicago) did to me," Iverson said. "Every time that I don't play well in the second half, that is going to be the case. I think that they played great. They did what they had to do to stop me tonight. I didn't shoot the ball well, I made poor decisions and I just had a bad all-around game. The way I played tonight, a high school team could have beaten us." A 3-pointer by Gordon gave the Bulls the lead for good at 84-82 with 4:32 to play. Antonio Davis added a jump hook before a 3-pointer by Aaron McKie made it a one-point game with 3:06 left. Rookie Chris Duhon drew a charge from Iverson, then drilled a 3-pointer for an 89-85 edge at the 2:23 mark. A jumper by Samuel Dalembert halved the deficit, but Davis put home a miss by Gordon with 48 seconds remaining. Iverson raced upcourt and into the lane but lost the ball. The Bulls ran down the clock and Kirk Hinrich missed a 3-pointer that Tyson Chandler hammered home while drawing a foul. The three-point play sealed it at 94-87 with 11 seconds to play. "That was a much-needed, hard-fought win," Skiles said. "Our intensity throughout the whole game was great. It was another night where we struggled to make some shots but we were able to gut it out and make big plays." In the second half, Chicago limited Philadelphia to 31 percent (10-of-36) shooting. Iverson, playing with a chip fracture in his left thumb, made just 2-of-10 shots after halftime as he was hounded by Duhon and Gordon. "He's a tremendous player. He's so quick," Duhon said. "He gets through the smallest gaps. It had to take a team effort. No one guy can guard him. We let him get to the line a couple of times and we put a lot of pressure on our big guys. We just tried to close the gap a bit and pick him up a little higher to give the guards an opportunity to stay with him." Hinrich had 21 points and nine assists for the Bulls, whose recent slump had them on the verge of being caught by the 76ers (32-34) for seventh place in the East. Instead, Chicago overcame the absence of injured leading scorer Eddy Curry (hamstring) and pulled into a tie for sixth with Indiana. "We had a little losing streak going, we've lost a couple that we've should have won," said Skiles, whose club took the season series, 2-1. "That's the main thing, we don't want that losing streak to linger on us. Also, this was a tie-break game. If we end up tied with Philly, we now have that advantage. So it's a big game." Dalembert had 16 points and 17 rebounds and Marc Jackson added 11 and 13 for the Sixers, who had won two in a row but played without injured star forward Chris Webber (Achilles). "I knew that he had discomfort in his Achilles (tendon) when he woke up," Sixers coach Jim O'Brien said. "There was some swelling, and (the medical staff) got it down, but it was too tender for him to play. You have to win with what you have and we did not do that. We had a chance but you cannot give up that many second shots, and turn the basketball over that much and still expect to beat a solid team."
