Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson bounced back from a rare subpar effort and scored 39 points as the Philadelphia 76ers posted a 114-110 victory over the Indiana Pacers, who have suffered consecutive losses for the first time in 15 months.

Iverson, who leads the league in scoring at 28.1 points per game, had only 14 in Monday's 74-73 loss to Orlando. Tonight, he scored 10 in the fourth quarter as Philadelphia overcame an eight-point deficit.

George Lynch had 21 points and Tyrone Hill added 17 for Philadelphia, which defeated a team with a winning record for only the fifth time in 13 games. The 76ers snapped a 10-game losing streak against Indiana, defeating the Pacers for just the second time since January 15, 1994.

"That was my first time beating Indiana," said Iverson. "It was real special.

"I really wanted to get the win for coach. He hasn't beaten them since he arrived here," Iverson said of Sixers coach Larry Brown, who coached the Pacers for four seasons until 1997.

Iverson was then alerted to the fact that his team has never won a game in which he scored 40 points.

"I was saying to myself, 'I hope I don't get over the 40 mark and we lose.' Maybe God was sending me and the team a message, when I score over 40 we can't win so I'll take the 39 any day for a win."

"(Iverson) is playing with a lot of confidence," said Pacers center Rik Smits. "He has the green light to do anything he wants. When you let him go, he's tough to guard. We like to think we have a decent defense yet we still gave him almost 40 points."

Reggie Miller scored 27 points and Smits added 22 for Indiana, which had not dropped two straight games since December 8-10, 1997. The Pacers lost for just the second time in their last seven road games and fell to 6-4 away from home.

"Both teams went after it," said Miller. "This was more high scoring than we expected. We thought it was going to be more of a defensive game, but both teams lit it up from the offensive end."

The 76ers opened the fourth quarter trailing 91-83 but used a 9-0 burst to seize the lead. Theo Ratliff drained a 16-footer and Hill followed with a layup. Lynch, the goat in Monday's loss, sank a long 3-pointer to get Philadelphia within 91-90.

Eric Snow's driving layup gave Philadelphia a one-point lead and the advantage was never more than four points the rest of the way. Miller sank a 3-pointer with 9.6 seconds left to draw Indiana within 112-110, but Snow sealed the victory with a pair of free throws with 8.8 seconds remaining.

"The great thing about the league is playing again right away," said Lynch. "You get to forget about mistakes. You're only as good as your next game and it was nice to see we could win a close game."

In Monday's 74-73 loss to the Magic, Lynch threw away an inbounds pass that allowed Orlando's Darrell Armstrong to hit the game-winning layup as time expired.

Iverson showed early in the contest that his performance on Monday was nothing more than a momentary lapse in an All-Star season. He had 14 points in the first quarter as Philadelphia led 27-24 after 12 minutes.

After allowing Philadelphia to shoot 67 percent (12-of-18) in the opening quarter, Indiana turned the tables in the second. The Pacers made 13-of-19 shots in the second quarter to pull within 60-59 at the break.

Indiana opened the third quarter with a 13-4 burst, extending its lead to 84-72 with 7:49 left. Two free throws by Miller with 3:35 remaining gave the Pacers a nine-point edge.
