Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson scored 26 points and the Philadelphia 76ers held the Indiana Pacers to one field goal over the final 3 1/2 minutes en route to a 93-83 victory, their fifth win in seven games.

Philadelphia ended the game with a 12-3 run, limiting the Pacers to a meaningless layup by Jalen Rose with 12 seconds left. Indiana went 1-for-5 from the field down the stretch.

Iverson is averaging 32.7 points in three games against Indiana this season but his feed to Aaron McKie in the right corner set up a 3-pointer with 2:30 left that extended the 76ers' lead to 86-80. Matt Geiger converted an uncontested layup with 1:40 remaining for an eight-point cushion.

Free throws by Iverson and Geiger provided the final scoring for Philadelphia. The Sixers forced Indiana into three turnovers over the final 3:32 for their second straight win over the Pacers after 10 consecutive losses.

"I see it as giving us a lot more confidence," Iverson said. "They were picked to win it all and to beat a team like that two out of three times says a lot about our team and the character we have on this team."

Geiger scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the 76ers. Theo Ratliff tied a career high with 15 points and set a personal best with 15 rebounds. Philadelphia's starting frontcourt outscored Indiana's, 39-16.

"I love the intensity," Ratliff said. "I love how we're playing as a whole. We have aggressiveness, we're being tough. That's what we need to do as a team."

Rose finished with a career-high 28 points and Reggie Miller scored 21 but the Pacers lost for the third time in five games. Rik Smits pulled down a career-high 17 rebounds and Mark Jackson established a First Union Center record with eight first-quarter assists. He finished with 11, four shy of the arena record.

"We came in with the attitude that we really wanted to win," Rose said. "When we had the lead, they found ways to stay in the game. They played strong."

"We were running around, dribbling out the clock and taking forced shots at the end," Pacers coach Larry Bird added. "We started the game out good, but we didn't pass to the weak side. That bogs down our offense."

Indiana scored nine straight points in a 2 1/2-minute stretch to grab an 11-4 lead with 7:28 left in the opening period. Smits netted six in the spurt and the Pacers were ahead, 25-19, at the end of the quarter.

The second period belonged to Rose as he scored 14 of his 20 first-half points. He netted seven during a 9-4 spurt that put Indiana ahead 36-27 with 7:40 left.

Philadelphia countered with an 11-5 run and trailed by one point with 2:11 left before halftime. The Sixers went into the break down 47-44, but ran off nine straight points to take a 53-47 lead with 9:39 left in the third quarter. Iverson had five points during the surge.

The Pacers were scoreless for the first four minutes of the period, but ended the quarter with an 11-4 run and tied it at 68-68 behind five points by Antonio Davis.
