GAME RECAP

Allen Iverson scored a season-high 38 points and Aaron McKie victimized his previous team with the go-ahead three-pointer as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Detroit Pistons, 104-96, for their fourth win in five games.

Iverson bounced back from a 9-of-27 shooting performance in a loss at New York on Tuesday by eclisping his previous high of 34, set five days ago against Atlanta. In 46 minutes, he was 12-of-22 from the field and 14-of-16 from the line, adding a key steal, three free throws and a crucial jumper in the final minute.

"I will never get tired in a basketball game," Iverson said. "I could play 48 minutes and still play another game. As a team, we knew how to fight back against Detroit's run."

"Allen Iverson played phenomenal all night," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "He made key shots and came up with key steals."

McKie, dealt from Detroit to Philadelphia in a four-player trade in December, had 12 points, eight assists and eight rebounds. He buried a three-pointer from the left wing with 59 seconds to go, giving the 76ers the lead for good at 97-94.

"We were getting ourselves into a lot of sticky situations with the shot clock, so when a good shot I decided to take it," McKie said, downplaying the visit to Detroit. "It's just another game, no big deal."

Theo Ratliff, also acquired in the trade with the Pistons, had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Sixers, who blew an 18-point lead but nevertheless have won six of their last nine games.

Grant Hill scored 31 points for the Pistons, who fell four games behind the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Detroit is 19-22 since the trade, while Philadelphia is 19-23.

"I think the biggest disappointment is we got beat on hustle plays," Pistons coach Alvin Gentry said. "We can say whatever we want about our shooting percentage, but the bottom line is we got beat on hustle plays. That's very disturbing."

There were five lead changes and five ties in the fourth quarter, the last at 94-94 with 1:55 remaining on a three-pointer by Jerry Stackhouse, who was the key player in the trade.

After the teams traded empty possessions, McKie made his shot, and three seconds later, Iverson stole an inbounds pass and was fouled. He made one free throw to boost the lead to 98-94.

Hill tipped in a miss with 50 seconds left, but Iverson drained a 19-footer with 31 seconds to go, and after Hill missed, Eric Snow and Iverson each made two foul shots to seal Philadelphia's 10th road win on the season.

Scott Williams grabbed 11 rebounds in his return from the injured list for the 76ers, who shot 43 percent (37-of-86) from the field and held a 48-39 edge on the glass. Philadelphia was without forward Joe Smith, who suffered an abdominal strain on Monday.

Joe Dumars scored 18 points and Stackhouse added 13 for Detroit, which shot 41 percent (31-of-76), including 4-of-18 from behind the arc. Brian Williams added 12 points and nine rebounds and Hill grabbed nine boards.

"This is the most disappointing loss of the whole season," said Stackhouse. "I thought we were ready to take that next step."

Iverson scored 14 points in the first quarter as the Sixers sped to a 31-15 lead. Ten of those came in an 18-6 burst capped by Benoit Benjamin's basket that opened the second quarter and gave Philadelphia its largest lead.

Hill scored six points in a 13-4 run that closed the second quarter and pulled the Pistons within 54-46 at halftime. The Sixers scored the first basket of the second half, but Dumars and Williams scored six points apiece in a 14-2 spurt, giving Detroit a 60-58 lead with 8:13 left in the period.

The Pistons took a 78-77 lead to the final quarter but lost to the Sixers for the first time in three meetings this season.

"Two months ago, we might have lost this game by 25 points," Brown said. "Tonight we seemed to have an answer when Detroit made a big run at us.

"If you want to be a playoff contender, you have to beat teams you feel you're better than," Pistons guard Malik Sealy said. "We feel we're better than Philadelphia. But they were better tonight. They took care of business and outhustled us. We didn't take care of business tonight."
