GAME RECAP

Rookie Tim Thomas scored a season-high 23 points and fueled a pair of second-half bursts as the well-rested Philadelphia 76ers breezed to a 107-89 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies, who have lost 11 straight games.

Thomas, who had missed the last two games due to a death in his family, returned to lead the 76ers to their first home win since December 12th. He scored five points in a third-quarter run and nine straight Philadelphia points in the fourth quarter.

Since Jerry Stackhouse was traded to Detroit and Thomas moved into the starting lineup, he is averaging 15.7 points in nine games, although he did not start this contest.

"I just want to win," Thomas said. "I don't care whether I get 23 or eight. All I care about is the Ws. That's the bottom line. We just played hard on defense and allowed our defense to bring our offense out."

Theo Ratliff collected 18 points and six blocked shots for the 76ers, who had not played in a week. Last Tuesday, Philadelphia completed a 3-4 road trip which included a win at Vancouver, its fifth in six all-time meetings.

"Consistent minutes has helped me to develop as a player," said Ratliff. "Having a set routine, knowing when the coach is going to play me and how he's going to bring me in has allowed me to prepare mentally for what I have to do on any given night."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 23 points and Bryant Reeves added 21 for the Grizzlies, who have not won since December 21st against Portland and fell to 2-16 on the road.

"We're at a point right now where we'll try anything in the world," Grizzlies forward Otis Thorpe said. "It's frustrating, depressing and to me it's embarrassing. It's a matter of who has the pride on this team to step up."

Allen Iverson had 17 points and 10 assists for the 76ers, who had five players in double figures. Iverson also shut down rookie point guard Antonio Daniels, who managed just five points.

A hook by Reeves pulled the Grizzlies within 68-59 with 6:38 to play in the third quarter before Thomas scored five points in an 11-2 spurt, including a three-point play off a reverse layup that capped it at 77-61 with 2:17 left in the period.

"We were just a different team in the third quarter as far as our concentration and our energy level," Grizzlies coach Brian Hill said. "They made a commitment in the first four or five minutes to take us off our dribble. We didn't respond defensively. They outplayed us in the third and that was the game."

Philadelphia led 82-67 entering the fourth quarter and broke open the game as Thomas scored nine straight points for the Sixers, including another three-point play off a thunderous transition dunk that made it 91-69 with 8:59 remaining.

Another dunk by Thomas, this one off an alley-oop pass from Iverson, gave Philadelphia its largest lead at 99-75 with 5:35 to go.

"That's what we do best. I've been saying it all year," Thomas said. "With his speed and my makeup speed to his, we can make things like that happen all the time."

Jim Jackson scored 15 points and Derrick Coleman added 13 and 10 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 54 percent (43-of-79) from the field and held a 49-44 rebounding edge as they recorded their biggest win in one-plus seasons at the CoreStates Center.

Sam Mack and Blue Edwards scored 15 points apiece for Vancouver, which shot 37.5 percent (33-of-88). Daniels, the fourth overall pick in the draft, shot 2-of-11 and sat out a portion of the second half after being poked in the eye.

A runner by Daniels with 1:47 left in the second quarter pulled the Grizzlies into a 52-52 tie before the Sixers closed the half with a 7-2 spurt, taking a 59-54 lead on a three-point play by Coleman.

Ratliff had a three-point play and a jumper to cap a 7-1 burst that opened the third quarter and gave Philadelphia a 66-55 lead with 8:13 remaining.

"Guys came in and did a great job collectively. This is how we have to play to win," said Ratliff, acquired from Detroit in the Stackhouse trade. "The guys have gotten a bad rap in terms of people saying they were selfish, didn't want to pass the ball and playing for themselves. That is the opposite of what I've been seeing."
