Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson won the battle of young point guards and Larry Hughes emerged as the game's best rookie as the Philadelphia 76ers buried the Sacramento Kings, 94-81.

Iverson matched a First Union Center record by scoring 18 of his 36 points in the first quarter and outplayed rookie Jason Williams, who brought the crowd to its feet with a sensational layup in the fourth quarter but totaled only 10 points.

Hughes, selected eighth in the 1998 draft -- one slot after Williams -- finished with a career-high 17 points, including eight during an 11- run to close the third quarter that put Philadelphia ahead, 74-60.

Iverson was 15-of-32 from the field and missed 10 consecutive shots bridging the middle periods. But he had eight points and six assists in the third quarter, setting up a pair of dunks by Hughes in the pivotal run.

Iverson pointed at a lack of defense for his team's offensive success.

"That makes it a lot easier," he said. "It makes your offense run a lot smoother. We are a defensive team first and then an offensive team, so we're used to trying to stop people. When it gets easier on the offensive end, that just makes it better."

George Lynch added season highs with 19 points and 14 rebounds for the 76ers, who led by at least eight points over the final 16:20. They have won two in a row after a four-game losing streak.

Chris Webber totaled 21 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots for Sacramento, which has lost three in a row after three consecutive wins. The Kings are 0-3 on a five-game, seven-day road trip.

"We can't blame it on the road," Webber said. "If we do, we need to be struck by lightning because it's wrong. You can't blame it on that, you just have to do it. We need to learn to keep games closer and have a chance to win them at the end instead of always coming back from 10 or 14 points down."

Tariq Abdul-Wahad converted a three-oint play to get the Kings within 63-59 with 3:05 left in the third quarter. But Hughes countered with three dunks and Iverson added a layup as the Sixers took control, 71-59, in the final minute of the period.

Hughes was 8-of-13 from the field in 20 minutes and Lynch was 8-of-12 for Philadelphia, which shot 42 percent (41-of-97).

"Some of the stuff he brings to the game, it's like, `Man, I didn't know he had that in his arsenal,'" Iverson said of Lynch. "It's exciting to see somebody bring a different aspect to your team."

Iverson scored his 18 first-quarter points in a 9 1/2-minute span, sinking seven of 10 field-goal attempts and 4-of-6 free throws. Houston's Hakeem Olajuwon set the original mark on January 10, 1997.

"Iverson got them going early in the game," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "He made every shot in that first quarter. He was really explosive."

Williams, meanwhile, had a tough time getting started. He missed three of his four shots in the quarter while committing two turnovers.

"As a team, we started out dead," Williams said. "We got so far (down) that we couldn't fight our way back in."

With 5:17 left in the fourth quarter, the University of Florida product dazzled the Philadelphia crowd. He dribbled down the right side, over the timeline and behind his back with one hand before banking in an over-the-shoulder layup. It got Sacramento within 86-72.

The Kings shot just 39 percent (31-of-80), thanks in part to a 9-of-20 effort by Webber. Williams, Corliss Williamson and Predrag Stojakovic combined to shoot 10-of-32.

"That was probably the poorest we've played on the road in a while," said Adelman, whose team fell to 2-6 away from home. "I was surprised we were only down by one at halftime. We turned the ball over, we took quick shots and poor shots. You can't do that and stay in the game on the road."
