Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Eric Snow scored four of his season-high 18 points in the final 65 seconds as the Philadelphia 76ers again won without Allen Iverson, shutting down the high-scoring Milwaukee Bucks in an 82-79 victory.

Snow triggered a decisive 7-0 run midway through the final period, then took over down the stretch. He drove for a layup that gave Philadelphia an 80-75 lead with 1:05 remaining and made a pair of free throws in the waning seconds.

Playing without injured NBA scoring champion Iverson and big men Theo Ratliff and Matt Geiger, the 76ers (7-8) won for the second time in as many nights. They limited the Bucks to 5-of-28 from the field and 11 points in the fourth quarter.

"We didn't do anything special," Snow said. "We just tried to limit their fast break and make them shoot jumpers with a hand in their face."

"We defended well," Sixers coach Larry Brown added. "To hold that team to 11 points is a miracle."

Ray Allen scored 23 points but missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the buzzer for Milwaukee, which came in averaging 106.1 points per game, second in the NBA. The Bucks (8-6) had reached triple figures in all but three games and scored no less than 94 points.

"Philly is emerging as one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, and they showed it tonight," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "They really beat us in the fourth quarter. We had a couple of breakdowns and they didn't have any."

A free throw by J.R. Reid gave Milwaukee a 71-67 lead with 7:45 to go but Snow made a 12-footer to start the 7-0 burst. A dunk by Billy Owens capped it and gave Philadelphia a 74-71 lead with 4:35 left.

"Before the game, (assistant coach John) Calipari told Eric that because the Bucks would double down, he'd have to hit a 15-footer and he did that tonight," Brown said.

Snow's drive pushed the lead to 80-75 as he took advantage of his former coach's defensive tendencies.

"I knew they were doubling off of me so I just took the shot or drove the lane," Snow said. "Playing for George Karl (in Seattle), I kind of know how they play. They switch a lot and kind of leave the middle open."

Former Sixer Tim Thomas tipped in a miss but Sam Cassell missed a 3-pointer and Snow was fouled after corraling the loose ball. Cassell was whistled for a technical foul but Snow made just 1-of-3 free throws for an 81-77 lead with 9.9 seconds to go.

Cassell scored inside and Snow was fouled again. He split a pair, setting up Allen's wide-open jumper that hit the front of the rim as time expired. Philadelphia has won four straight road games.

Rookie Todd MacCulloch had 16 points and nine rebounds and Larry Hughes scored 14 points for the Sixers, who shot just 39 percent (34-of-88) from the field and held a 49-45 edge in rebounds. Former Buck Tyrone Hill had nine points and 14 boards.

"I've said all along because we were hurt from day one that it doesn't matter who's out there," Snow said. "We still have to go out there and play unselfish."

"It's a big team win. With Allen being out we all have to step up," MacCulloch added. "The last two games we shared the ball and played well."

Cassell collected 16 points and seven assists for the Bucks, who shot under 37 percent (31-of-84), including 3-of-17 from 3-point range. Glenn Robinson was 4-of-16 and Allen was 9-of-25.

"With their leading scorer out, we gotta win this game," Cassell said. "We let them hang around, hang around and they won the game. When you've got a team that you're better than, you've got to do the things to win the game, and tonight we didn't do it."

The Bucks scored the first seven points and led by 10 midway through the first quarter before the Sixers cut the deficit to a point late in the period.

Milwaukee built a six-point halftime lead to 54-46 on Cassell's jumper before Philadelphia ran off 13 straight points. Aaron McKie scored five points in the burst, including a 3-pointer that gave the Sixers a 59-54 lead with 5:56 to go.
