Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Tim Floyd finally gave the United Center fans something to cheer about.

The first-year coach of the Bulls drew an ovation with 10:16 remaining as he celebrated his 45th birthday with an ejection in a 98-80 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers that kept Chicago winless at home.

With the losses and frustration mounting, Floyd took out his anger on referee Bill Spooner, drawing two technical fouls in about 10 seconds. After being ejected, he came onto the court to continue the argument and directed several expletives at Spooner before leaving to an ovation.

"I thought the game was pretty well officiated except I had a problem with one guy," Floyd said. "I think everyone knows who I had the problem with. It was not a good birthday present. I think the crowd reacted because they were as frustrated as we were in our playing."

"I think Tim was taking a stand for his team," Bulls forward Dickey Simpkins said. "He was frustrated watching this and us. He just got fed up with some of the calls."

Not all of the Bulls felt the same way.

"He could get thrown out 20 more times and it won't change the officiating," forward Mark Bryant said.

"I have one thing and only one thing to say, this (stuff's) embarrassing," guard Ron Harper said.

The rebuilt Bulls fell to 0-6 at the United Center after going 76-6 there the last two seasons. Chicago tied a team record for consecutive home losses set from January 14-February 4, 1984 -- the season before it drafted Michael Jordan. The loss was their first at home to Philadelphia since the 1992-93 season, a span of 11 games.

Allen Iverson scored 33 points for the 76ers (7-5), who have won three in a row following a four-game losing streak.

"I was a Bulls fan from the time they were terrible, even when they first got Michael," Iverson said. "When they first won titles it was a joy for me.

"(But) I've always hated the Bulls since I started playing in the NBA. They symbolize the frustration for me and my teammates, so I came in and made sure that we got a victory. Don't get me wrong -- I respected the whole Bulls team. They were great. And any time Michael Jordan had anything to say to me or Scottie Pippen had anything to say to me, I listened. But tonight they just played bad. We were a much better team and it's fun to come here and get a victory."

Iverson shot 10-of-20 from the field and made all 11 foul shots. Working primarily against Randy Brown, he scored 20 points in the first half as Philadelphia opened a 46-36 lead. Chicago began the second half with a 13-4 run, closing to 50-49 with 8:28 left in the third quarter on a three-point play by Toni Kukoc, who scored 16 points.

"They came out and got real aggressive offensively while we got soft and didn't guard them," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "They hit some shots and got back in the game. Then we tightened up defensively and got some steals to get out on the break."

The Bulls went without a basket for nearly six minutes and the Sixers scored the next 12 points. Theo Ratliff scored six points and Aaron McKie added four as Philadelphia rebuilt the lead to 62-49 with 3:38 remaining.

Simpkins ended the drought with a layup, but rookie Larry Hughes hit a jumper and a steal into a layup before a jumper by George Lynch made it 68-51 with 1:16 to go.

Floyd argued a foul call against Ron Harper and Eric Snow made 2-of-4 free throws to give the Sixers a 75-58 lead. Assistant Frank Hamblen re-inserted the starters but Philadelphia quickly extended to its largest lead at 83-60 on a jumper by McKie with 7:35 left. The Bulls got no closer than 16 points thereafter.

"I don't feel sorry for them," Larry Brown said. "They have a fine coach here who I have a lot of admiration for and they will continue to get better. It's just going to take a while."

Ratliff and Snow scored 12 points each and Hughes added 10 for the Sixers, who shot 49 percent (35-of-72) and made 26-of-31 free throws. Philadelphia had 17 steals, four by Snow.

Brent Barry scored 13 points and Bryant added 12 for the Bulls, who shot 40 percent (31-of-77). Simpkins grabbed 12 rebounds.

"We played a good defensive game tonight, kept the ball out of Harper and Kukoc's hands," Brown said. "When you can do that, shut out the offense of a team, you have a good chance of winning the game."
