GAME RECAP

Allen Iverson scored 29 points and the bench sparked a 20-3 second-quarter burst that gave the Philadelphia 76ers their first home victory of the season, 97-86 over the shorthanded Washington Wizards.

Iverson bounced back from a 5-of-16 shooting performance on Saturday against Boston. He entered the game having made just 56 percent from the line but made 13-of-17 foul shots, including a pair down the stretch that sealed the win.

"After the way I had been shooting in the previous games, I wanted to come out and have a good shooting night at the free-throw line," Iverson said. "I was working with (assistant coach) Maurice Cheeks before the game. He was saying I probably would go to the line a lot tonight and that I should start working on my shots before the game. I did. Mo Cheeks knows what he's talking about."

Clarence Weatherspoon and Jerry Stackhouse scored 16 points apiece for the 76ers, who had lost their first four home games. Derrick Coleman added 13 points and 12 rebounds before learning after the game that he has a recurrence of an irregular heartbeat and will be sidelined at least two weeks.

"I've had an irregular heartbeat. It just reoccurred," said Coleman, who was sidelined with the same ailment while with the New Jersey Nets. "I'm taking precautions to put it back in rhythm. I took a test about a week ago as a normal follow-up. We're just being cautious."

Tracy Murray scored a season-high 24 points for the Wizards, who were without injured All-Star forward Chris Webber. Washington, which won both visits to Philadelphia last season, fell to 0-4 against Atlantic Division foes. Webber has missed three straight games with back spasms.

"They had just played a game," Iverson said. "They weren't going to have great legs. We knew we could run on them and press them on defense. We felt we could win."

The Wizards opened a 27-23 lead on two free throws by Murray with 10:42 left in the second quarter before Philadelphia's bench took over on both ends of the court.

Doug Overton scored six points and Scott Williams four in a 20-3 burst. Overton's basket capped the run and gave the Sixers a 43-30 lead with 3:50 left before halftime.

"Those guys played great tonight," Iverson said. "The win came from those guys. They set the tempo. We had the game kind of tight. It was going both ways. They came in and changed the whole momentum. Doug Overton played great. He played like a veteran is supposed to play."

Washington's only basket during that stretch was a three-pointer by Murray. The Wizards went more than eight minutes with the lone field goal.

"I thought overall defensively we did a good job," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "Our bench came in and did a great job defensively and that helped us a lot. We didn't rebound that well until the latter part of the game and we got it going. That was a big factor."

Philadelphia led 49-35 at halftime and Iverson scored eight points in the third quarter. His free throw gave the Sixers their largest lead at 70-51 with 2:06 remaining in the period.

Washington trailed 74-58 entering the fourth quarter but closed to 91-84 on a drive by Calbert Cheaney with 2:41 to go. But a tip-in by Jimmy Jackson and two free throws by Iverson built the lead to 11 points with 1:24 to play.

Overton finished with eight points and Williams had six and 11 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 43 percent (33-of-77) but made 29-of-34 free throws. Jackson contributed 13 points.

"Scott Williams was tremendous," Brown said. "Spoon has always played well, but Doug, Mark Davis, Tim (Thomas), that whole group I think had a lot of energy. ... The bench really turned things around."

Juwan Howard scored 15 points and Cheaney added 11 for the Wizards, who shot 38 percent (34-of-89) and held a 47-44 edge in rebounds. Rod Strickland had 13 assists but was held to eight points.

"You've got to be mentally tough and forget about all the distractions," Howard said. "You just have to go out there and play basketball. You've got things that happen on and off the court that you're not used to but you've got to find a way to play the game."
