Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The Golden State Warriors honored Wilt Chamberlain by retiring his number. Unfortunately, they ran into Allen Iverson, who already honored Chamberlain.

Iverson scored seven of his 34 points in the final 2:23 as the Philadelphia 76ers held off the Warriors, 97-94, and gave coach Larry Brown his 700th NBA coaching win.

Chamberlain, among the game's all-time greats, died in October and the Warriors chose to honor him at halftime of tonight's game against the 76ers. They retired his No. 13, which also has been retired by the 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers.

However, Iverson wore a black armband earlier this season in remembrance of Chamberlain. Last season, Iverson became the first Sixer to win the league scoring title since Chamberlain did it in 1966.

"I just wore it on the first game of the season with his number on it," Iverson said. "It was just a one-game thing. I just wanted to show my respect."

Iverson overcame a sloppy first half by keying a third-quarter run and taking control down the stretch with crucial jumpers and free throws. He is averaging 32.3 points as Philadelphia has won the first three games of a four-game road trip.

In his third season in Philadelphia, Brown improved his overall NBA mark to 700-567. He also has coached Denver, New Jersey, San Antonio and the Los Angeles Clippers, taking each team to the postseason. The well-traveled Brown won 229 games with Carolina and Denver in the defunct ABA and 177 with UCLA and the University of Kansas.

"I'm lucky I'm coaching, especially when you see what happened with P.J. (Carlesimo), Brian Hill and Danny Ainge," Brown said. "When they gave me some other clubs, at least my mom knew where I was on most nights. I'm just proud to be in the NBA and allowed to coach."

"I'm just glad to be a part of it," said Iverson, who has had his differences. "Everyone thinks we can't get along, we bicker and fight all the time, but it's not that way. I have a lot of respect for him. I like him as a person and we're going to get into more spats but I'm really happy for him. No one deserves better."

On the other end of the spectrum is Warriors coach and general manager Garry St. Jean, who dropped to 0-2 since firing P.J. Carlesimo and taking over on the sidelines. Golden State has dropped five in a row overall.

Chamberlain began his career with the Philadelphia Warriors and moved west with the team following the 1961-62 season. He was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers midway through the next season and to the Lakers after the 1967-68 season.

Present at the halftime ceremony were Rick Barry, Nate Thurmond, Tom Meschery and Al Attles, all of whom also have had their numbers retired by the club.

"Guys that I was close to were involved in the ceremony tonight," Brown said. "I've known Nate Thurmond a long time. I played with Rick Barry and Al Attles has always been one of my heroes."

"It's special," Iverson said. "I'm glad to have been in the same building."

Attles, the team's vice president and assistant GM, hosted the ceremonies.

"I wish all of you had the opportunity to know Wilt like I knew him," Attles said.

"In my mind he's the greatest center to ever play the game," Barry added.

Iverson got some help from former Warriors Billy Owens and Tyrone Hill. Owens scored 15 points and Hill added 10 with 15 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 49 percent (39-of-80) from the field and 18-of-23 from the line.

"It's always special coming back here because I've got nothing but good memories about this place when I was a Warrior," Owens said. "It's good coming back here to get a win."

Rookie Vonteego Cummings scored a season-high 23 points and Antawn Jamison added 21 for Golden State, which trailed for the final 20 minutes.

"Vonteego's growing every day," St. Jean said. "He's a rookie. There's going to be some good days and some days that are not so good. By and large he's been a very pleasant surprise. I think he's going to continue to improve because of his character, his heart and his desire to learn."

Iverson and George Lynch scored four points apiece in a 16-0 burst that erased a four-point deficit and gave Philadelphia a 67-55 lead with just under five minutes left in the third quarter.

The Sixers still held an 84-74 advantage after a basket by Owens with 7:42 to play but Cummings capped an 11-2 spurt with one of his five 3-pointers to cut the deficit to 86-85 with 2:35 left.

Iverson answered with two free throws and Eric Snow and Lynch added a foul shot apiece before Cummings banked in a 3-pointer to make it 90-88 with 1:19 remaining. Iverson hit a 19-footer with 57 seconds left and, after Jamison made a free throw, Snow made a steal and two foul shots for a 94-89 bulge with 36 seconds to go.

Cummings hit another 3-pointer before Iverson banked in a jumper with 11 seconds left. After Jason Caffey's banker, Iverson made a free throw and Caffey's half-court shot missed at the buzzer.

Matt Geiger scored 15 points and Snow handed out 11 assists for the Sixers. John Starks scored 17 points for the Warriors, who shot 44 percent (37-of-84) and held a 48-38 rebounding edge but missed 10-of-22 free throws.

In the first half, Iverson had 16 points but committed eight turnovers as Philadelphia grabbed a 49-47 edge.
