Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers fought back from a 17-point second-half deficit, but the league-leading Portland Trail Blazers had just enough to hang on for their fifth straight win, 97-91.

Steve Smith scored 19 points and sank a 3-pointer with 63 seconds remaining to snap a tie, helping the Blazers improve the NBA's best record to 9-1.

Allen Iverson scored 26 points and buried a jumper with 1:32 left to forge an 87-87 tie. The 76ers had trailed 76-59 with less than a minute left in the third quarter.

"We're real pleased to get a good road victory," Dunleavy said after his squad improved to 5-1 away from home with their fourth straight road triumph. "They're a tough team. They kept coming back."

After Iverson's basket, with the shot clock winding down, Smith knocked down a 25-footer from the right corner to put the Blazers in front, 90-87.

"You know Philly was going to make their run," Smith said. "I hit the shot that kind of pulled us away."

Iverson, who was just 1-of-6 from the floor in the final period, shot an air ball on the ensuing trip before Damon Stoudamire gave Portland a five-point bulge with an easy layup.

"Somebody gets a big lead on us, we fight back," Iverson said. "A moral victory, I don't give a (darn) about a moral victory. That's a game we're supposed to win. We tied the game up, they hit a (3-pointer) and we couldn't recover."

Portland forward and Philadelphia native Rasheed Wallace purchased 175 tickets for friends and family members at the First Union Center. He did not disappoint his supporters, collecting 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting.

"We've started off pretty strong," Wallace said. "There's still some jelling for us to do. Even though we have it together, we know it could be deeper than it is right now. We can't count our chickens before they've hatched."

Billy Owens scored 14 points off the bench for the Sixers, who have dropped two straight at home after a three-game winning streak.

Theo Ratliff tallied 13 points and George Lynch grabbed 10 rebounds for Philadelphia, which shot 41 percent (35-of-85) and held a 45-42 advantage on the boards.

The balanced scoring attack of the Blazers featured five players in double figures and a 51 percent (38-of-71) shooting performance.

"It's the makeup of this team," Smith added. "Everybody likes to pass and be unselfish with the ball. We have veterans who love to play the game the right way."

Scottie Pippen and Arvydas Sabonis had 15 points apiece and Stoudamire finished with 13 for the Blazers, who forced 14 turnovers and never trailed.

Portland appeared to take the game by the throat late in the third quarter. Ratliff's driving layup pulled Philadelphia within 55-49 with 7:52 remaining in the period. But Portland went on a 21-10 run capped by Smith's free throws with 56 seconds left to open a 76-59 cushion.

"We should have played the first half like the second half," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "Be more committed to be a team on both ends of the court. Not be in a situation where we were trying to help on a play."

Undaunted by the hefty deficit, the Sixers responded with a barrage of 3-pointer to close the period.

Owens drained back-to-back 25-footers and Iverson beat the buzzer from 27 feet out as the Sixers closed within 76-68 entering the fourth quarter,

"Just when we thought we were close to knocking them out, they hit those (3-pointers) at the end of the third quarter," Dunleavy added. "I'm pleased with the poise of our team and the way we closed out the game."

Pippen's 3-pointer with 5:39 to play once again appeared to seal matters for the Blazers, giving them an 85-77 cushion. But Philadelphia fought back with a 10-2 run capped by Iverson's 20-footer that knotted the contest with 1:32 left.
