Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- For the second time in less than a week, the Philadelphia 76ers stole a road win from a Central Division opponent.

Aaron McKie sank a short jumper as time expired in overtime, lifting the 76ers to a wild 102-100 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cleveland's Lamond Murray sent the game into overtime with a tip-in in the final seconds of regulation. The Cavaliers were poised to force a second overtime after Brevin Knight hit a driving layup with 5.9 seconds left.

Following a timeout, McKie took the inbounds pass and dribbled just above the right baseline. He was stripped by Knight, but regained control and sank a 12-footer as the horn sounded to give the Sixers a thrilling win.

"We had two or three options out of it. I was supposed to come up and they were thinking they were going to play me at the top," McKie said. "But Billy (Owens) got me the ball and my whole thinking was to try and get a shot up and get fouled."

McKie scored a season-high 25 points, including six in overtime, and George Lynch and former Cavalier Tyrone Hill each had big games for the Sixers, who overcame a 12-point fourth-quarter deficit.

"I think everybody has raised their level of play," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We were due to hit a shot like that. It was just a great game. Both teams came back when they were dead and both teams made big plays when they had to. Fortunately, we had the ball last."

Hill matched a season high with 22 points and pulled down 16 rebounds while Lynch added 22 and 12 rebounds before fouling out late in the fourth quarter. In an earlier win over Cleveland this season, Hill had 22 and eight.

Philadelphia, which also rallied for a win at Milwaukee six days ago, has won four of six games since Allen Iverson, the league's leading scorer, went down with a broken thumb. He is expected to be sidelined at least another three weeks.

The Sixers got some good news on the injury front with the return of starting center Matt Geiger, who missed the first 17 games of the season after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on October 27. He started tonight and scored 10 points on 5-of-17 shooting in 32 minutes.

Murray had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Bob Sura scored 20 points -- all in the first three quarters -- for the Cavaliers, who had a three-game winning streak stopped.

Behind Sura and Murray, who had 13 points, the Cavaliers held a 77-65 lead entering the fourth quarter. But the Sixers used 15-4 run over the first 7 1/2 minutes of the final period and closed to 81-80 with 4:12 to play on Lynch's 20-footer.

McKie, who went 10-of-17 from the floor, made a driving layup with 3:10 left in the period to give the Sixers an 84-83 lead.

Philadelphia shot 45 percent (41-of-91) and committed 22 turnovers.

The lead changed hands four times in the final minutes of regulation. Philadelphia's Eric Snow had the game in his hands at the line with 11 seconds left. But he made 1-of-2 shots before Murray tipped in Shawn Kemp's airball with five seconds left.

Snow, who is from nearby Canton, had a strong game with 12 points and 11 assists.

The Sixers were able to win despite just 11 points from their bench. Larry Hughes, who scored 25 points earlier this week in a win over New York, was 0-of-6 and committed six turnovers in 12 minutes.

Andrew DeClercq scored 15 points and Kemp collected 14 and 11 rebounds for the Cavs, who shot 44 percent (36-of-81) and committed 20 turnovers.

"That was a tough one to lose tonight. We really don't have anyone to blame but ourselves, with our play in the fourth quarter," Cleveland coach Randy Wittman said. "Taking care of the ball really cost us. We shot ourselves in the foot a little bit."
