Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Eric Snow made his first basket of the night a game-winner, sending the Chicago Bulls to a franchise-record 13th straight road loss.

Snow's running jumper in the lane snapped a tie with 15.3 seconds left, and Allen Iverson added a free throw with 7.9 seconds remaining to give the Philadelphia 76ers a 77-74 victory over the Bulls.

Chicago had a chance to tie it, but Kornel David inexplicably threw up a desperation 28-foot which fell well short of the rim with six seconds left after catching the inbounds pass following a timeout.

Bulls coach Tim Floyd was visibly disgusted by David's shot, and berated the second-year Hungarian forward as the players walked off the court.

"It was a very poor decision in terms of shot selection. Even a dead man could see that," Floyd said.

Iverson scored 14 of his 18 points in the first half when the Sixers built a 48-39 lead. But after hitting 6-of-8 shots over the first two quarters, he was just 2-of-11 in the second half when the Bulls rallied.

Matt Geiger had 16 points and Larry Hughes added 16 off the bench for the 76ers, who won their second straight to move over .500 again at 13-12.

Snow took just three shots in 31 minutes before he took a pass from Iverson, drove on B.J. Armstrong and scored on a six-foot runner in the lane for the winner.

"I wanted to go to Allen but he didn't have a shot so he passed me the ball," Snow said. "I was trying to go down and make a play for someone else, but instead I just drove it down and got a good shot."

Following the basket, Snow stole the ball from rookie Ron Artest, who attempted to drive the lane.

"Thank goodness Eric makes the big shot and a great defensive play," said 76ers coach Larry Brown. "It was a struggle for us. We're 13-12, but I'm not happy about that."

The Bulls promptly fouled Iverson with 7.9 seconds left. After hitting the first free throw, Iverson missed the second and Chicago called a timeout.

However, on the ensuing inbounds play, David panicked and hoisted up an air ball.

"For whatever reason he turned and shot it," Floyd said. "If we were not able to get the ball to Fred (Hoiberg) or in B.J.'s hands, Kornel was to sprint the ball, catch it and then hand to Elton (Brand) on a three-point shot."

"My job was to set the screen," David said. "Artest couldn't catch the ball so I caught the ball and I turned and shot it. I might have been fouled, but I know I made a mistake. Next time, I'll either pass it or drive down to the basket."

The Bulls have lost all 13 of their road games, eclipsing a mark of 12 straight road losses set in 1985, and from March 24 to April 30, 1999. Overall, the Bulls are off to the worst start in franchise history at 2-18.

Corey Benjamin led the Bulls with 16 points and Artest added 15. Brand had 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Bulls rookie guard Dedric Willoughby suffered a strained groin in the second quarter and did not return. Before the game, Chicago placed starting guard Randy Brown on the injured list with left knee tendinitis.

"We knew this would be a tough game," Iverson said. "Those guys are professionals. You look at their record and you knew they didn't want to get blown out. They play hard."

Tyrone Hill scored nine of his 11 points in the first quarter when the Sixers took a 23-19 lead.

Philadelphia held a 42-39 advantage late in the second quarter and closed the half with six straight points on a 14-footer and a pair of free throws by Geiger and a short running jumper by Iverson.

The Bulls opened the third quarter with a 20-6 run. Armstrong scored eight points and Artest capped the spurt with a pair of free throws, giving the Bulls a 59-54 advantage with 3:17 left in the quarter.

A 20-foot jumper by Aaron McKie, two free throws by Hughes and a layup by Iverson put Philadelphia back in the lead, 68-65 with 7:15 left.
