GAME RECAP

Mitch Richmond scored 29 points, including the go-ahead three-pointer with 2:25 remaining, as the Sacramento Kings survived a fourth-quarter brawl for a 92-90 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Richmond's three-pointer was one of just two baskets in the final six minutes -- both by the Kings, who defeated the 76ers for the sixth straight time overall and the ninth consecutive time in Sacramento.

Forwards Derrick Coleman of Philadelphia and Corliss Williamson of Sacramento were ejected with 6:02 remaining after their fight at midcourt spilled onto the scorers' table. Players from both teams came off the bench and league fines and suspensions are certain to follow. Coleman connected with a pair of punches.

Williamson had 23 points and a career-high 16 rebounds for the Kings, who snapped a two-game losing streak. They have not lost at home to the 76ers since March 1st, 1989.

Allen Iverson had 17 points and 11 assists and Coleman added 14 and 10 rebounds for the Sixers, who fell to 1-1 on their seven-game road trip and have lost seven of their last eight overall. Iverson shot 2-of-14 from the field and Coleman was 3-of-16.

"We controlled Iverson and Coleman to a certain extent and that was the ballgame," Kings coach Eddie Jordan said.

A three-point play by Coleman with 7:30 left -- Philadelphia's last basket of the game -- cut the deficit to 85-81. Richmond made a jumper to build the lead to six points and Coleman and Williamson had a brief tussle and some words in battling for a rebound under the basket.

After a timeout and an exchange of possessions, the Sixers came upcourt and Williamson ran up behind Coleman, appearing to take a swing at him. Coleman quickly reacted, throwing a pair of right hands at Williamson's head before the two clinched.

"All I saw was Corliss run up behind him and take a swing and Derrick went back after him and everything broke loose," said 76ers coach Larry Brown. "It got ugly after that.

"He protected himself. What's he going to do? Nobody likes to see fighting but I don't know what you could do in a situation like that."

Kings forward Billy Owens, a former teammate of Coleman's at Syracuse, tried to separate the two and players from both benches streamed onto the court. Jordan also intervened.

After order was restored, neither team scored for nearly two minutes until a pair of free throws by Iverson, who added two more with 3:11 left. Two foul shots by Jim Jackson pulled the Sixers into an 87-87 tie with 2:48 to play.

Richmond's go-ahead basket was his fifth three-pointer of the game. But Iverson made two more free throws with 1:19 to go and Sacramento's Michael Stewart missed a pair with 57 seconds left.

Iverson missed a jumper and Kings rookie Anthony Johnson made a layup for a 92-89 lead with 22 seconds remaining. Jackson was fouled with 13 seconds left and made the first free throw. He missed the second, but Philadelphia grabbed the rebound and Iverson fed Aaron McKie, whose 16-footer at the buzzer was an air ball.

"I was proud of the way our team played," Brown said. "When you go 2-for-21 in the fourth quarter and give yourself a chance to win with Derrick not there, I'm pretty proud of our effort."

"We hung tough and went on a little run to get back in the game at the end," McKie said. "Free throws kept us in the game but ... you know."

Owens had 12 points and eight rebounds and Johnson and Olden Polynice added 11 points apiece for Sacramento, which shot 47 percent (34-of-73) from the field, including 6-of-14 from behind the arc. Richmond was 5-of-9 from three-point range.

"Mitch was very good and Anthony Johnson and hit a really big shot for us," Jordan said.

"You always dream of being in a position to hit the big shots," Johnson said. "EJ called my number and I was able to hit the runner, which was my patent in college, so I was comfortable shooting that shot and it fell for me."

Jackson and rookie Tim Thomas scored 13 points each for the Sixers, who shot under 36 percent (29-of-81) and were beaten on the boards, 49-42. However, they forced 25 turnovers and were 30-of-43 from the line.

"We had some defensive stops but it just wasn't going for us on the offensive end," Thomas said. "Losing a close game like this is always harder to take. It was basically good looks. They just didn't fall for us."

Richmond scored 11 points in the first quarter as Sacramento opened a 31-24 lead. Philadelphia closed to 51-49 at halftime and took a 74-73 lead entering the fourth quarter.
