GAME RECAP

Allen Iverson continued his outstanding play with 24 points and 10 assists as the Philadelphia 76ers cruised past the Sacramento Kings, 98-85, for their first four-game winning streak in almost six years.

The 76ers have won all of their games since a rare seven-day mid-season break, amassing their best streak since winning five in a row from January 18th-25th, 1992. Philadelphia also has won four consecutive home games for the first time since the 1991-92 season, when it won six in a row at the Spectrum.

The 76ers did not win their 13th game last season until February 20th en route to a 22-60 finish.

"Our chemistry is a lot better," Iverson said. "One thing that Aaron McKie said is this is the first time in his career that he has been on a team where nobody is crying about shots and nobody is worrying about me, me, me."

Iverson scored 12 points in the first quarter as the 76ers raced to a 29-18 lead. He is averaging 26.5 points in his last six games for the Sixers, who blocked 14 shots and outscored the Kings 40-10 in fast-break points.

It was the first meeting between the teams since Kings forward Corliss Williamson and Sixers forward Derrick Coleman were ejected at Sacramento on December 28th when their fight spilled into the scorers' table. Williamson was suspended three games and Coleman two.

Mitch Ritchmond scored 22 points for Sacramento, which has lost five of six and 16 of 19 on the road.

"Our defense was pretty good when they had a set," Richmond said. "But what pushed the lead up was the fact that we were missing some shots and they were able to get into the open floor and connect on layups."

Philadelphia plays four of its next six on the road, starting with Wednesday's clash against the Atlantic Division-leading Miami Heat. The 76ers have gone 7-4 since a 6-19 start.

"You want to start playing your best basketball after the first of the year and that's what we've been doing," Sixers guard Jim Jackson said. "We told ourselves we were going to erase what happened and try to turn this thing around."

The Sixers took the lead for good at 12-11 on Mark Davis' fast-break dunk. After the Kings closed to 33-30, Philadelphia ripped off a 12-5 spurt, opening a 45-35 advantage on Theo Ratliff's foul shot with 4:25 left in the half.

"Their defense had a lot to do with what happened," Sacramento coach Eddie Jordan said. "They got almost everything in transition. They got some loose balls, were able to hustle and get some second-effort points and we really couldn't afford to lose a second-effort game today."

After building a 57-41 halftime lead, the 76ers stretched their advantage to 25 points on three occasions in the third quarter. Davis' dunk made it 77-52 with 4:51 left in the period before the Kings pulled within 10 points in the final minute.

"We haven't won four games at home in some years, so it's a plus," said Iverson, who made 11-of-21 shots. "But when you're 13-23, you have to win more than four games straight to turn the corner. We have to run off some more and if we lose a game, we have to come right back and run off four or five more."

Jackson added 17 points for the 76ers, who held the Kings to 39.5 percent (34-of-86) shooting. Williamson and Olden Polynice each scored 19 for Sacramento, and Polynice grabbed 11 rebounds.

"We dug ourselves a hole because the chemistry wasn't there," Jackson said. "Now, it's here. We're still going to lose some games but if we stay competitive and play like we're playing now, a lot of positives can still happen for the rest of this season."
