Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers squandered the first-half lead provided by Theo Ratliff's defense. Then they blew the second-half lead provided by Allen Iverson's offense. Ratliff and Iverson teamed up in overtime and that was too much for the Vancouver Grizzlies to overcome.

Ratliff had a career-high nine blocks, including one in overtime that set up Iverson's tiebreaking four-point play, and the 76ers held on for a 95-90 victory over the Grizzlies, who have lost 16 of their last 17 games.

Ratliff had 16 points and eight rebounds. Five of his blocks came in the first quarter, when Philadelphia built a 15-point lead.

"I just want to do whatever it takes to win," Ratliff said. "I was very disappointed my last two games because I lot of guys got layups over me. I wanted to get after them tonight and make them change their shots."

Despite being slowed by a quadricep injury, Iverson scored 34 points, including seven in overtime after being held scoreless in the fourth quarter. The league scoring leader had 18 points in the third period, when the 76ers extended a 42-39 halftime advantage to 17 points.

"The injury affected me the whole game," Iverson said. "It was tough at one point. I had to get somebody to wipe the bottom of my shoes off because I couldn't lift my leg up to do it myself."

Philadelphia defeated Vancouver for the sixth straight time and salvaged the finale of a three-game road trip. The Sixers improved to 2-1 in overtime, while the Grizzlies fell to 1-3.

Rookie Mike Bibby collected 20 points and nine assists and Tony Massenburg scored 20 points for the shorthanded Grizzlies. Bibby missed shots at the end of the fourth quarter and overtime.

Vancouver forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim, third in the league at 23.5 points per game, was limited to 16 on 2-of-18 shooting. He was primarily defended by George Lynch, who spent the last two seasons with the Grizzlies before signing with the Sixers as a free agent.

"It was a great win," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "I give them (Vancouver) credit. They came back. Allen had a really good game. ... Lynch did a real good job."

"Even last year, I would say George is probably one of the toughest guys to go against," Abdur-Rahim said. "He seemed to always face me in practice. As a team, they did a great job of taking all the stuff away from the low post."

A jumper by Bibby opened the overtime scoring and gave Vancouver its first lead of the game. Ratliff tied it with two foul shots and smothered a drive by Abdur-Rahim for his ninth block. At the other end, Iverson buried a 3-pointer as he was hammered by Abdur-Rahim. His free throw gave Philadelphia the lead for good at 90-86 with 2:50 to go.

"Shot-blocking is all about anticipation and I felt really good tonight," Ratliff said.

Massenburg dunked between misses by Iverson, but Abdur-Rahim had another shot blocked by Harvey Grant, leading to a free throw by Iverson that made it 91-88 with 32 seconds left. Abdur-Rahim and Iverson traded a pair of free throws before Bibby misfired on a 3-pointer with four seconds left. A pair of free throws by rookie Larry Hughes sealed it for Philadelphia.

"I felt good with Mike taking that last shot," Massenburg said. "If we get caught in that situation again, I feel really good about him getting that winning shot again."

Hughes scored 16 points and Lynch added 10 for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (36-of-81) from the field, blocked 13 shots and forced 22 turnovers. Eric Snow had nine assists.

Pete Chilcutt scored a season-high 16 points and Michael Smith grabbed 12 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who shot 42 percent (32-of-78) and held a 42-39 rebounding edge.

"I can't ask for anymore from the guys," Grizzlies coach Brian Hill said. "They did an incredible job tonight. We got the last look in regulation, the last look in overtime. We got some good shots and they just didn't go down tonight."

Ratliff's blocks got Philadelphia's running game in gear and a drive by Iverson gave the Sixers a 21-6 advantage with 4:03 to go in the first quarter.

Chilcutt's 10 second-quarter points got the Grizzlies back in it but Iverson ran wild in the third quarter. He made 6-of-7 shots before finding Hughes for an alley-oop slam that gave the Sixers their largest lead at 69-52 with 1:19 remaining.

"I just tried to step my game a little bit more," Iverson said. "I know I was playing up to my capabilities. I was glad I could score a bunch of points."

Vancouver scored eight of the last nine points of the period and the first seven of the fourth quarter, closing to 70-67 on a 3-pointer by Chilcutt with 10:09 left. The Grizzlies tied it at 74-74 on a free throw by rookie Felipe Lopez with 5:32 to play.

Bibby's jumper with 1:04 to go tied it but he missed a running five-footer at the end of regulation.

"I should have made that last shot," Bibby said. "That's my floating shot. But I missed it. We can't worry about it."

Both teams were without big men. The Grizzlies played without center Bryant Reeves, who has a sore knee. The Sixers were without Tyrone Hill, who has a strained neck.

"They didn't seem to really miss `Country' (Reeves)," Ratliff said. "They took us to overtime. Massenburg played great. Chilcutt off the bench was key, hitting 3-pointers at crucial times."
