Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- For Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers, 40 points is the tragic number. Lucky for both of them he was held to 39 tonight.

Iverson scored eight points in the opening quarter as the Philadelphia 76ers broke to an early lead and were never headed in 95-73 rout of the reeling Washington Wizards.

Billy Owens added 18 points and Larry Hughes had 10 for the 76ers, who are 1-8 when Iverson scores at least 40 points. The 39 are seven shy of his season high, set November 10 in a 110-105 loss to the Orlando Magic.

Rookie Richard Hamilton scored 17 points and Juwan Howard added 13 for the Wizards, who trailed 15-2 just over six minutes into the contest. Washington has dropped seven straight to fall to 1-7 this season.

The Wizards failed to convert a shot in the first 10 minutes and trailed, 21-3, until Rod Strickland found the range with 1:56 remaining in the first quarter.

In its frigid first quarter, Washington shot 10 percent from the field (2-for-20). Mitch Richmond led the drought by going 0-for-5, missing his lone 3-point attempt. The Wizards also were only 5-of-10 at the line in the period.

Afterwards, Washington coach Gar Heard said there will be lineup changes, including the insertion of Hamilton, for Thursday's game against Toronto.

"If it's time for a change, it's time for a change," said Richmond, a six-time All-Star who admittedly has been trying to play himself into shape and finished with eight points on 3-of-13 shooting in 17 minutes. "He's the coach, so we have to back him with whatever decision he makes. I think Richard is playing very well off the bench, so if it's time for a change, it's time for a change.

"We have to find answers. What we're doing just isn't working. I know I'm not on my `A' game, or my `B' or `C' game. I'm trying to fight my way back and come back to the way I once was. It's difficult when you haven't had training camp. I have to have confidence in myself that I'm going to be able to get out of this rut."

After Philadelphia took a 31-10 lead early in the second quarter, Washington ran off eight straight points, pulling within 31-18 on a drive by Howard with 7:46 left before halftime.

The 76ers got a scare with 6:48 left in the period when Iverson, who appeared to catch Howard's elbow in the stomach, went down hard on a baseline drive. After staying down for some 30 seconds, Iverson walked off under his own power. He soon returned and scored seven more points, finishing the half with 20 and the Sixers leading, 47-35.

"This is my home away from home," said Iverson, who attended nearby Georgetown University. "I'm from Newport News, Virginia, but I went to school here, so I've got a lot of friends here. My coach is here, and that's something I think about every time I come to DC. I kind of get nervous before I play a game here, but I want to do well for them."

Iverson also said he sympathizes for the struggling Wizards.

"I feel real bad for those guys because I'm real good friends with Rod Strickland and Jahidi White," he explained. "I wish Jahidi could be on my team, and Rod is real cool with me. And I like Juwan a lot. Mitch is a great player. To see those guys struggle like that ... when we play them I want to beat them, but against anybody else I'm rooting for them. I just hope they can get everything together because they have some great players on that team. It's just a matter of time."

Hamilton hit back-to-back buckets to pull the Wizards to 49-42 with 10:01 left in the third quarter, but that was as close as they got. Iverson nailed back-to-back bombs from right in front of Heard. The second was a 3-pointer that pushed Philadelphia's lead to 60-46 with 6:03 left in the period.

With just under nine minutes left in the fourth quarter, Wizards forward Michael smith and Sixers center Theo Ratliff got into a shoving match under Philadelphia's basket. A double-technical was called, although neither player was ejected.

Ratliff led the Sixers with nine rebounds while Eric Snow had nine assists.

"From where we started, it's a nice feeling," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "Winning two in a row on the road feels good."

Aaron Williams contributed 12 points and Smith had 11 rebounds for the Wizards.
