GAME RECAP

Hot-shooting Allen Iverson had 31 points and eight assists as the Philadelphia 76ers took advantage of Shaquille O'Neal's absence and defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, 105-95.

Iverson shot 12-of-21 from the field and had four steals as the 76ers won for the fourth time in their last seven games after beginning the season with five consecutive losses. The 1997 Rookie of the Year is shooting 49 percent from the field this season after managing just 41 percent last season.

Jim Jackson recorded 16 points, nine assists and eight rebounds for Philadelphia, which stopped a three-game losing streak against Los Angeles.

"The key to the win was how we sustasined our momentum," Jackson said. "Collective efforts, concentration, rebounding and a lack of unforced turnovers will help carry us over."

Elden Campbell had 19 points, seven rebounds and five blocked shots and Philadelphia area native Kobe Bryant also scored 19 points for the Lakers, who have lost two of their last three games after beginning the season 11-0, the best start in club history. O'Neal missed his fourth straight game with an abdominal strain.

"I wanted to win, but rebounding really killed us," Bryant said. "With us being a successful team, every team is coming after us. We just could not get it done on the defensive boards and in the end it really hurt us."

"It's a big difference when you've got a guy driving down the lane all the time laying the ball up," said Los Angeles point guard Nick Van Exel. "That's when you really miss the big fella."

Iverson began and ended an 8-1 third-quarter spurt that gave Philadelphia the lead for good. His driving layup made it 61-59 with seven minutes left and his reverse layup gave the Sixers a 67-60 advantage with 4:45 remaining.

"The whole second half was the key. We just played great in the second half," Iverson said. "I think the guys that came off the bench gave us a great spark. It was something we desperately needed because we kept coming up short in all of these games. And we've been in every game."

Philadelphia center Eric Montross had seven of his season-high 12 rebounds in the third period, when the 76ers outscored the Lakers, 24-16.

"Montross was terrific, especially in the third quarter," said Philadelphia coach Larry Brown. "He played with a lot more confidence. If he continues to play like this, he will continue to get minutes."

"I'm trying to let the game come to me," Montross said. "I just have to be within the flow. That is a bigger part more than anything else. Nobody expected us to win. We played unselfishly and outrebounded them."

Rookie Tim Thomas contributed 11 points and six rebounds in 14 minutes and Clarence Weatherspoon added nine and eight as the Sixers outrebounded the Lakers, 51-35, depite playing without leading rebounder Derrick Coleman. Coleman, who is averaging 9.2 boards, missed his third straight game with an irregular heartbeat and may not return until January.

The Sixers maintained a 75-68 lead after three periods but the Lakers drew within 80-78 when Bryant sank a three-pointer with 9:31 remaining. Iverson answered with a basket and a three-pointer before Terry Cummings followed with a turnaround jumper, giving Philadelphia an 87-78 advantage with 8:02 left.

Robert Horry's three-pointer cut Philadelphia's lead to 92-86 with 5:09 left. But Iverson's driving layup capped a 6-0 spurt for a 98-86 lead with 3:29 remaining. Weatherspoon's dunk gave the Sixers their biggest lead, 100-87, with 2:40 to go.

"It's been tough jumping out on teams and then they make their run and we're not able to recover from it," Iverson said. "Tonight we just played solid defense and took what they gave us on offense and we were able to control the tempo."

Campbell scored 10 points in the first quarter, which ended at 26-26. Philadelphia had a 19-4 run over the first and second periods, ending with Iverson's 17-footer for a 46-34 lead with 5:49 left in the first half.

Horry, who had nine points and nine rebounds, made a hook shot to cut the deficit to 46-36 and trigger an 11-0 run. A layup by Eddie Jones capped the burst and drew the Lakers within 46-45 with 3:24 left before halftime.

"They outrebounded us, that was key for them," said Jones, who had 14 points. "They got their confidence early rebounding the ball and getting easy transition baskets."

Van Exel made a three-pointer with 37 seconds to go and Los Angeles took a 52-51 edge into halftime.
