Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson outplayed Rod Strickland for three quarters, then watched his favorite point guard deal the Philadelphia 76ers a painful defeat.

Strickland scored 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter, including the go-ahead three-point play with 3:26 remaining, to rally the Washington Wizards to a 105-98 victory. Washington outscored Philadelphia, 34-16, in the period.

"We just got it done in the fourth," Strickland said. "Things went our way for once. We've had some tough games. This one today, because we played so hard, makes up for those last five (losses)."

Strickland drove past Iverson and scooped one of his patented spin layups off the backboard while being fouled, then sank the free throw to give Washington a 92-91 lead. He followed with an open 3-pointer and set up Ben Wallace for an uncontested dunk with a no-look pass with 1:20 left to cap a 12-2 run and open a 101-93 lead.

After scorching Strickland for 29 points over the first three quarters, Iverson shot 1-of-6 for just three points in the final period. His first basket of the quarter came on an uncontested layup with 38 seconds left, pulling the 76ers within 101-97.

"I was just missing them," Iverson said. "I got good looks. I just couldn't put them in. We stopped doing the things we were doing the whole game."

After Washington's Otis Thorpe hit 1-of-2 free throws, Iverson was fouled by Strickland while attempting a 3-pointer with 26 seconds remaining. But Iverson missed 2-of-3 free throws, Chris Whitney hit a pair of foul shots and Wallace added a free throw in the final 18 seconds to seal the win.

The Wizards snapped a five-game losing streak and gave interim coach Jim Brovelli his first victory. Washington was 0-3 since Brovelli replaced the fired Bernie Bickerstaff on Monday.

"They continued to fight and scrap and it paid off," Brovelli said. "We finally made some steps in defense. It gave us life. We broke through that (frustration) in the last five games and that's what you have to do."

"Everyone on the team likes and respects him," Strickland said of Brovelli. "Hopefully, more (wins) will come of this."

The loss stopped Philadelphia's three-game winning streak and dropped the 76ers into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, one-half game behind New York and just one-half game ahead of Cleveland and Toronto. The 76ers visit New York on Tuesday and host Toronto on Wednesday.

Iverson, the NBA's leading scorer, scored 38 points to lead the Sixers to a 104-91 victory over the Wizards in his team's last visit to Washington on March 1. Afterwards, he called Strickland "my favorite point guard in the whole league."

Whenever Iverson plays at the MCI Center it is a homecoming of sorts. He grew up in Hampton, Virginia and played collegiately at Georgetown, which has shared a home court with the Wizards for several years.

Today, Iverson finished with 32 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. But his struggles in the fourth quarter coincided with his team's collapse. The Sixers hit just 5-of-16 shots in the quarter.

It marked only the fourth time this season the Sixers have allowed more than 100 points, but two of them have come against Washington. Philadelphia suffered a 103-95 overtime home loss to the Wizards on March 7.

"They got any easy shot they wanted (in the fourth)," said 76ers coach Larry Brown. "I can't remember the last time we gave up 30 points in a quarter, let alone 34."

Mitch Richmond led the Wizards with 24 points. Thorpe had 18 points and 12 rebounds and rookie Randell Jackson replaced an injured Juwan Howard and contributed 11 points in 16 minutes off the bench.

"They needed a spark and I gave them one," Jackson said. "I knew I had to fill in some big shoes and I just go in there and do the best I can."

Howard, who finished with 12 points, injured his left ankle when he attempted to block a baseline drive by Iverson with three minutes left in the third quarter. After he had his ankle taped, Howard returned at the start of the fourth quarter, but played just one minute before leaving for good. X-rays were negative and Howard will be re-evaluated on Monday.

"It's sore but the pain has eased," Howard said. "I tried to go at it (in the fourth quarter) but it was hurting too bad."

Jackson, who had a season high of 17 points against Sacramento on February 25, made three key plays in the fourth quarter. He scored on a tip-in and converted a layup with 4:37 remaining to spark a 10-0 run that gave Washington an 89-87 lead. Jackson added a right baseline jumper with 1:37 left to increase the advantage to 99-93.

Matt Geiger scored 17 points, Tyrone Hill added 16 and Theo Ratliff added 14 for the Sixers. Hill had missed the last four games with a fractured toe.

Philadelphia starting forward George Lynch left the game in the third quarter with a right knee injury and did not return.

The 76ers controlled the game for three quarters before collapsing. After Iverson closed the first quarter with a pair of free throws, Philadelphia scored the first seven points of the second quarter to open a 29-20 lead.

A pair of free throws by rookie Larry Hughes with 6:19 left in the second quarter increased the lead to 42-30.

A three-point play by Strickland pulled Washington within 58-52 early in the third quarter, but Philadelphia responded with a 12-5 run. A free throw by Ratliff with 4:53 left in the quarter gave Philadelphia its biggest lead at 70-57.

The Sixers took an 82-71 lead into the fourth quarter before the Wizards scored eight of the first nine points, pulling within 83-79 on a 3-pointer by Richmond with 10:34 remaining.

Philadelphia appeared to stem the momentum when Ratliff hit a short jumper and Hill converted a pair of free throws, providing an 87-79 lead.

But the Wizards scored the next 10 points to take the lead. Strickland converted a layup and a 17-foot jumper, Jackson had a layup and a tip-in and Terry Davis added a tip-in.
