GAME RECAP

Allen Iverson scored 16 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter, including a three-pointer with 2.9 seconds remaining, as the Philadelphia 76ers snapped a seven-game losing streak with a controversial 91-90 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

A tough 19-footer by Michael Finley gave the Mavericks a 90-86 lead with 26 seconds left, but Iverson scored on a drive with 10 seconds to go and Dallas called timeout in order to inbound at midcourt.

But Dennis Scott's pass was intercepted by Theo Ratliff. The 76ers quickly moved into the frontcourt and Iverson drilled a 25-footer from the top of the circle, capping a comeback from a 14-point deficit.

"There wasn't nobody on me," said Iverson, who took a pass from Eric Snow. "I didn't want to go any deeper. I saw that I was open and I wanted to end it right there. My eyes got big when I saw I was behind the line. Nobody was nowhere near me. Once we got the ball I took off. There wasn't anybody around me. I saw Eric on the other side and I circled back to get the ball and he made a great pass."

Out of timeouts, the Mavericks pushed the ball up court and Finley launched a three-pointer that appeared to beat the buzzer. The shot swished through and Dallas players poured off the bench in celebration, but referee Nolan Fine disallowed the basket.

"I knew it was good when it left my hand but it was after the buzzer, so it didn't count," Finley said. "I'm not convinced it was after the buzzer, but it's the ref's call, and I've got to respect that. I hadn't heard the buzzer. The crowd was making a lot of noise. I thought it was good but it wasn't."

"(The referee said) the ball was still in his hands," Mavericks coach Don Nelson said. "It's hard to argue with him. I haven't seen that replay but I clearly thought the ball was in the air. But I'm looking at it one way and he's more objective than I am.

In all the excitement, Iverson lost track of the final seconds.

"I didn't see Finley's shot at the end," Iverson said. "I thought the game was over. I heard peopole yelling and I didn't know what was going on. I didn't know he hit the shot until I got in the locker room. My teammates were saying, 'It might've been good. And I was like, 'What are you talking about? Of course it was good (his shot).' I looked at the replay and it was no good. I'm positive."

Limited to eight points through through the first 32 minutes, Iverson shot 10-of-16 but committed nine of Philadelphia's 24 turnovers. Jim Jackson added 19 points and Tim Thomas 16 for the Sixers, who swept the season series.

"We put ourselves in a bind because we didn't play the way we were supposed to in the third quarter," Iverson said. "I'll take it because we fought so hard just trying to get back. Being down like we were, we never gave up."

Scott scored 24 points and Finley added 17 for the Mavericks, who have lost 21 straight road games. Dallas has lost six of seven overall.

"Iverson just took over," Nelson said. "He was pretty conservative for most of the game but he took over and took advantage of the opportunities."

Iverson's three-pointer with 3:47 left in the third quarter gave Philadelphia a 58-58 tie, but Scott made two jumpers and Finley buried a three-pointer as Dallas took a 69-63 lead into the last period.

The lead grew to 85-71 on a 13-footer by Scott with 5:43 remaining before the Sixers used a full-court press to trigger their comeback. Iverson scored nine straight points on a three-point play, a drive, two free throws and another drive before finding Clarence Weatherspoon for a hoop that cut the deficit to 85-82 with 3:44 to play.

Hubert Davis countered with a jumper with 3:07 left, but Ratliff made two free throws with 1:54 to play. A turnover by Iverson led to a free throw by Erick Strickland that gave the Mavericks an 88-84 lead with 53 seconds left, but Derrick Coleman answered with two free throws six seconds later.

"It's an improbable win," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "At the 10-second mark I told them we were going to switch everything on the out of bounds. I told them if we did score to make sure they picked up and had everybody guarded because they were out of timeouts.

"We celebrated Allen's shot for about five seconds. ... I saw him wave it off. I saw the clock go before he shot it. When I saw the replay, with one-tenth left, he's got both hands on the ball. I was thrilled with the results."

Ratliff had 11 points and 10 rebounds and Colemaan pulled down 13 boards for the Sixers, who shot 47 percent (31-of-66) from the field and held a 47-34 rebounding edge. Philadelphia was 8-of-15 on three-pointers and 21-of-27 from the line.

Khalid Reeves scored 15 points and A.C. Green grabbed 11 boards for the Mavs, who shot 41 percent (34-of-83) and committed just 12 turnovers. But Dallas was 7-of-27 from behind the arc and missed 9-of-24 foul shots.

Thomas scored 12 points in the first quarter, including a dunk off a fast break that gave Philadelphia a 21-12 lead with 4:46 remaining in the period. But Dallas surged to a 26-26 tie after one quarter as Finley scored five points in an 11-2 run.

A three-point play by Coleman capped an 11-1 burst that gave the Sixers their largest lead at 42-32 with 3:32 left in the second quarter. But Philadelphia committed six turnovers -- three by Iverson -- in the final 3 1/2 minutes as Dallas pulled into a 44-44 halftime tie.
