Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The savior was on the bench, unable to save his new team from another disappointing defeat.

Newly acquired Stephon Marbury had to watch from the sidelines as the New Jersey Nets blew a big fourth-quarter lead and lost to the Philadelphia 76ers in overtime, 100-93.

Allen Iverson had two critical baskets early in the extra session and finished with 28 points for Philadelphia, which trailed by 13 with less than nine minutes left in regulation.

"I just felt like we were going to bounce back," Iverson said. "We have got to feel like we are the best, even when we get down. We have to feel like our defense will get us back in the game."

Theo Ratliff was huge on both ends of the floor for the 76ers, collecting a season-high 23 points, 11 rebounds and seven blocked shots. Two of those rejections came against Keith Van Horn in overtime.

"We know that if we go down by five or 10 points, we have enough defensively to be able to stop them while being able to score points," Ratliff said. "That's our mindset."

Marbury agreed to a reported six-year, $70.9 million deal this afternoon after being acquired from the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday. He arrived shortly after midnight but was unable to play for New Jersey due to jet lag and lack of sleep.

Marbury came over with fellow guards Elliot Perry and Chris Carr and forward Bill Curley in a deal that involved three teams and eight players. New Jersey shipped Sam Cassell and Chris Gatling to the Milwaukee Bucks as part of the trade.

None of the new additions were available, leaving the Nets with only eight players in uniform. Philadelphia also was undermanned, going without forward Tyrone Hill and swingman Jerald Honeycutt, who were acquired Thursday from Milwaukee for Tim Thomas and Scott Williams.

Some were calling Marbury, a native of nearby Brooklyn, New York, a savior for the league's most underachieving team. New Jersey, which made the playoffs last season with a 43-39 record, own the NBA's second-worst mark at 3-16.

"I told Kerry (Kittles) last summer that if I had to pick up one player to play with in this league, it would be Stephon," Van Horn said. "I think he is going to come in and turn things around."

Van Horn scored 25 points on 8-of-26 shooting and grabbed 16 rebounds for New Jersey, which has lost six in a row and fell to 1-10 on the road.

"I hope that's the last of that this season," said Nets coach John Calipari. "A 10-point lead with six minutes to play and not getting it done, it's a real disappointment."

A three-point play by Doug Overton, who started at the point where Marbury is supposed to take over, gave the Nets an 80-67 cushion with 9:21 left in the final period. They managed only one field goal over the next nine minutes as Philadelphia used a 16-3 burst to tie it.

Ratliff scored seven points in the run and Aaron McKie capped it with a tip-in to make it 83-83 with 1:55 to go. Two foul shots by Van Horn put New Jersey back in front, but Eric Snow and Iverson made driving layups to give the 76ers their first lead since midway through the third quarter at 87-85 with 40 seconds left.

Kendall Gill, who scored 15 points, buried an 18-footer on the ensuing possession to tie it. Iverson's driving attempt was blocked by Kittles with 1.1 seconds left and Van Horn's desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer fell well short.

Iverson drilled a 3-pointer six seconds into overtime that put Philadelphia ahead to stay. Ratliff recorded his only assist as he found Lynch for a short jumper, then blocked Van Horn's inside effort. Iverson converted a driving layup to build a 94-87 cushion with 2:34 left in the extra session.

After Gill and Lynch traded baskets, Ratliff rejected a 20-footer by Van Horn. Ratliff came into the contest ranked fourth in the league at three blocks per game.

"I've played against him three years in college," said Ratliff, a Wyoming alumnus. "I know his game and I know how he likes to play. ... I feel like if I get a couple of blocks on him early, the intimidation factor is going to step in."

A free throw by Gill and three by Kittles cut the deficit to 96-93 with 32 seconds to go. Snow hit 1-of-2 from the line and, after Gill missed from seven feet, added another foul shot with 21 seconds left for a 98-93 advantage. Following a turnover by Scott Burrell, rookie Larry Hughes sealed the win as he followed a miss by Iverson.

"When other teams pick up their intensity, we haven't matched it," Kittles said. "We didn't go after them and just take the game."

Lynch had 18 points, eight boards and five steals for the 76ers, who never led by more than three points during regulation. New Jersey had its largest lead, 27-12, in the first quarter, making this Philadelphia's biggest comeback win of the season.

Jayson Williams battled foul trouble throughout for the Nets, finishing with only four points and five rebounds before fouling out midway through the fourth quarter.

Kittles and Overton each had 14 points and six assists. Kittles grabbed 11 rebounds to help New Jersey to a 56-45 edge on the glass.

Kittles already was looking forward to Marbury joining the lineup, which is expected to happen Sunday at Miami.

"We're going to move in a positive way starting Sunday," Kittles said. "Everyone is excited about having a young, great point guard who is an elite player in this league."
