Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson scored four points in a pivotal run to end the third quarter and stripped Glenn Robinson to trigger a decisive fourth-quarter burst as the Philadelphia 76ers posted an 87-76 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Iverson, who leads the NBA in scoring, finished with 25 points for Philadelphia, which has won four straight games for the first time since January 13-19, 1998. The 76ers have won eight times in 13 games after needing 29 games to reach that victory total last year. They also posted their first winning month since January 1994.

Milwaukee was within 53-51 with 4:21 left in the third quarter following a 20-footer by Dell Curry. But Iverson and Matt Geiger had four points apiece as the Sixers closed the period with an 11-2 burst.

The Bucks closed to 69-62 with seven minutes left and had the ball when Iverson stripped Robinson and fed George Lynch for a breakaway layup. That basket sparked a 14-4 run that sealed Philadelphia's fourth road victory in five games.

In 1997-98, Philadelphia needed 15 road games to record their fourth victory away from home.

"Allen had a great game tonight," said 76ers coach Larry Brown. "By far, this is the best we have played all year, defensively."

Iverson made just 8-of-24 shots but added seven assists and some key defensive plays.

"I had a horrible night shooting the ball but my teammates were able to pick me up and we got the win," Iverson said. "On nights when I shoot like this, I try to pick up the defense to do something to try to help the team."

"He didn't have to have a great game to beat us," said Bucks coach George Karl.

Ray Allen scored 16 points and Robinson added 14 for the Bucks, who have lost four of their last five games following a 5-1 start.

"They jumped on us in the third quarter with great defense," said Allen. "That was pretty much the game. It's funny to see how Allen and I progress. He pushes me to compete as hard as I can against him."

"This was a good thing to teach with, in trying to understand the team," Karl said. "Sometimes losing does better than winning."

After Milwaukee got within 53-51 late in the third quarter, Geiger sank two free throws and rookie Larry Hughes drained a 13-footer. Iverson converted a turnover into a layup for a 59-51 lead with 3:06 to play.

After a 15-footer by Terrell Brandon halted the run, Geiger hit a nine-footer off a feed from Iverson. Iverson sank two free throws with 60 seconds to go before Aaron McKie sank a free throw to cap the run and give Philadelphia a 64-53 lead entering the fourth quarter.

Hughes scored a season-high 17 points and Geiger added 16 and nine rebounds for the 76ers, who shot 43 percent (32-of-75) from the field and held a 46-39 rebounding edge.

Milwaukee shot just 42 percent (34-of-82), including 1-of-9 from 3-point range. The Bucks committed 18 turnovers and were outscored 23-7 at the line.

"Defensively, they hustled and controlled the ball well," said Bucks forward Armen Gilliam, a former Sixer. "We didn't get the shots we wanted and had to settle for the long jump shots. It's too difficult to win night in and night out with the long jump shots."
