Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson could not complain about sitting on the bench because he was hardly there.

Playing all but two minutes, Iverson ignored his much-publicized thigh bruise and scored 27 points to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 95-87 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Iverson was benched for the second quarter of Friday's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers after he snapped at coach Larry Brown over the amount of time he was kept on the bench. He did not play in the second half or in Sunday's loss at Toronto, citing the injury that has bothered him for more than three weeks.

"I didn't say `It was about (bleepin') time,'" Iverson said. "I said it was bull.

"I said I was going to sit out until my leg got better, but it's not going to get any better," he added. "If I have to sit out, it's going to have to be three weeks. So I just play hurt if I can help my team. ... It's no time to act like a baby now. Let's play."

Tonight, Iverson did not come out of the game until he came up limping with 9:38 remaining. He sat for less than two minutes before returning but scored just one point in the final period.

"Allen played with a lot of energy on defense," Brown said. "I wasn't surprised he played; he never wants to come out."

Iverson made 8-of-22 shots and 9-of-10 free throws. The NBA's leading scorer did not display his usual explosiveness but was enough of a factor to open the floor for his teammates. The Sixers had six other players with at least eight points.

Philadelphia (17-16) won for just the second time in seven games and remained in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race. Four teams battling for the final two spots are one game apart.

"We set a personal goal for ourselves, not just to get in with the eighth spot, but to try to sneak in the seventh, or the sixth," Iverson said. "If teams start losing, anything can happen. Things are so tight in the East."

Glenn Robinson scored 22 points for the Bucks, who have lost two in a row following a four-game winning streak. Robinson made a jumper with a tenth of a second left to give Milwaukee a 93-92 victory at Philadelphia on February 16.

Iverson departed right after the Sixers broke open the game. A 3-pointer by Aaron McKie ended the third period and Theo Ratliff opened the fourth quarter with a layup for a 78-70 lead. Armen Gilliam made a short jumper for Milwaukee before Matt Geiger and Ratliff each made two free throws to give Philadelphia an 82-72 advantage with 9:38 to go.

A layup by Eric Snow, who scored 12 points, kept the margin at 89-79 with 4:45 left before the Bucks rallied. A 3-pointer by Haywoode Workman, a free throw by Ervin Johnson and two foul shots by Robinson cut the deficit to 89-85 with 2:13 to play. McKie responded with an 18-footer and after Robinson missed a jumper, George Lynch sank two free throws with 1:12 remaining to seal it.

"We saw a lot of opportunities at the end of the game but we couldn't hit them when it counted," Karl said. "We were not shooting the ball well."

"I think this win shows a lot about the character of this team," McKie said. "I wasn't surprised Allen played; he's tough."

Ratliff scored 18 points, Lynch added 10 and McKie, Harvey Grant and rookie Larry Hughes eight apiece for Philadelphia, which shot 42 percent (28-of-66) from the field and made 36-of-42 free throws. Grant grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds.

"The first half we struggled shooting the ball, but we got to the line a lot and converted," Brown said. "We had a lot of big performances."

Gilliam scored 14 points, Ray Allen 12 and Workman 10 for the Bucks, who shot 38 percent (30-of-79) and made 22-of-27 from the line. Allen made just 5-of-19 shots.

"My thing with Ray, I wish he and Glenn both would be more agressive when they're not making shots," Karl said. "To get to the free throw line and take the ball to the rim a little bit. I think they rely on the jump shot too much."

Iverson needed 12 seconds to get into the scoring column and the Sixers got off to a quick start, capitalizing off five Milwaukee turnovers and racing to a 16-6 lead. Ratliff scored eight in the first period, which ended with Philadelphia holding a 25-18 advantage.

"I tried to be aggressive as far as helping my teammates out, which eliminated me on the defensive boards basically for that whole first half," said Ratliff, who had four blocks. "I definitely tried to set the tone when they come inside to let them know that I'm trying to go at just about everything that they try to throw up in there."

Milwaukee used a pair of 10-4 bursts in the second quarter to pull into a 42-42 tie with 1:20 left. Philadelphia led 48-47 at halftime and relinquished the lead in the third quarter before rallying behind Iverson, who had 15 points in the period. His two free throws gave the Sixers the lead for good at 66-64 and he added a 3-pointer to cap a 9-2 burst.
