Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Jeff McInnis began the game having played six minutes all season. He ended it with five minutes of outplaying Allen Iverson.

The third-string point guard scored six of his career-high 12 points in overtime and held the NBA's leading scorer without a point in the extra session as the Washington Wizards defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 103-95.

The Wizards normally use Chris Whitney to spell point guard Rod Strickland but coach Bernie Bickerstaff went to McInnis, a 1996 second-round pick of the Denver Nuggets who has bounced around for three years.

McInnis' quickness helped against Iverson, who scored 30 points but had to work hard for them. He made only 8-of-26 shots and 14-of-16 free throws.

"Allen and I are real good friends," McInnis said. "I played with him in the summer. I know I can't stop him. I just want to go out and make him work hard for his points. Everybody knows he's gonna score. If you come in, thinking you're gonna stop him, you're fooling yourself.

"I used my (four-inch) height advantage on him. I got a lot of energy like he has, so I was able to chase him. He gets a lot of screens set for him. It gets tiring, but I'm the type of person that can run all day."

Iverson went scoreless in overtime after leading a late fourth-quarter rally. Afterwards, he left before speaking to reporters.

"It's asking a lot of Allen to carry the half-court offense," Sixers coach Larry Brown said.

"I wanted a matchup on Iverson," said Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff. "(McInnis) had told the assistant coaches that he'd like to try it. That's what you want, people who want to step up. We need that. What he did just takes a work ethic."

McInnis played the final 20 minutes after Strickland suffered a strained right groin late in the third quarter. His 3-pointer gave Washington a 93-92 lead 38 seconds into the extra session and added a tough foul-line jumper that put the Wizards ahead for good at 95-93 with 3:43 remaining.

"He (McInnis) was big in overtime," Wizards guard Mitch Richmond said. "He made Iverson work for everything that he took. We gave him the game ball."

While Iverson and the rest of the 76ers struggled on offense, Juwan Howard split a pair of free throws and made a turnaround jumper to push the lead to 98-93 with 2:39 to go. Howard finished with 28 points.

The Sixers closed to 98-95 on a tip-in by Harvey Grant with 2:13 left but did not score again. Calbert Cheaney made a jumper, McInnis added a free throw and Chris Whitney sank a pair for the final margin. It marked the first time this season the 76ers allowed at least 100 points.

Mitch Richmond scored 22 points and Otis Thorpe added 14 and 11 rebounds for the Wizards, who have won three of four since an 18-point home loss to Philadelphia on Monday. Richmond and Thorpe both fouled out.

Theo Ratliff scored 16 points and George Lynch added 11 and 11 rebounds for the Sixers, who have lost two in a row following a six-game winning streak. Ratliff, Matt Geiger and Eric Snow fouled out for Philadelphia.

Two free throws by McInnis ran Washington's streak of made foul shots to 27 and gave the Wizards an 88-79 lead with just under three minutes to go in the fourth quarter.

Iverson scored six straight points before a jumper by Howard with 1:24 left. Iverson made a free throw and Lynch made two to cut the deficit to 90-88 before Lynch and Snow double-teamed McInnis and forced a turnover. Lynch sent rookie Larry Hughes in for a breakaway dunk that tied the game with 39 seconds left.

"George Lynch made a great steal on me," McInnis said. "By the time I could get the ball, they were dunking. I'm the type of player (where) I don't let one play get me down."

Washington came up empty and Iverson allowed the clock to wind down before driving on McInnis. But his eight-foot runner was short and time expired.

"I thought McInnis did a really nice job defensively, in terms of his mental toughness," Bickerstaff said. "My hat's off to him."

In the fourth quarter, Washington shot 2-of-14 from the field and 13-of-13 from the line.

The Wizards closed the first half with a 15-3 spurt, featuring seven points from Richmond, to grab a 52-44 lead. The surge continued in the third quarter as three jumpers by Richmond gave Washington its largest lead at 62-50 with 8:01 remaining.

"They made some shots and got some confidence," Brown said. "We didn't play with the emotion that we did the last time we played them."

With Iverson pressing on offense, the Sixers began pressing on defense. They used a half-court trap to close to 72-65 after three quarters and scored the first six points of the fourth quarter, as a jumper by Iverson cut the deficit to 72-71 with 10:39 left.

"We gave up too many points in the first half," Sixers forward Harvey Grant said. "I think in the second quarter, we gave up like 30 points. That's too much to give up to anybody. So I think we made up our mind to play good defense."

"Their press kind of bothered us a little bit," Richmond said. "To keep our heads and not let this get away, it was just a good effort."

Tracy Murray scored nine points and Strickland added seven and seven assists for the Wizards, who shot 42 percent (34-of-81) from the field and made 32-of-36 free throws.

Snow scored 11 points and Lynch made five steals for the Sixers, who shot 38 percent (32-of-84) and made 31-of-45 foul shots.
