Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- After the pressure of the Philadelphia 76ers played the energy of the Orlando Magic to a standstill, Eric Snow settled matters.

Snow's 15-foot jumper with 14.4 seconds left snapped a tie and gave the 76ers a 102-100 victory over the slumping Magic.

Allen Iverson scored 35 points for Philadelphia, which trailed by as many as 18 points in the second quarter and by eight with six minutes to go.

A follow dunk by Michael Doleac, who collected 18 points and 13 rebounds, gave the Magic a 100-100 tie with 1:18 remaining. Iverson and Doleac traded misses before Orlando double-teamed Iverson on the right wing. He passed to Snow, who buried the open shot.

"Everyone in the place knew we were going to Allen," Snow said. "Teams are not gonna let Allen beat them. By double-teaming him, they give other guys opportunities to make plays. For a few games, it's been me. It could be somebody else the next game. The key is to be aggressive in those situations."

"Snow made the shot we wanted him to make," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "Snow is the kind of guy where he may not be making shots at the beginning of the game but he will at the end. You've gotta give him credit."

Snow collected 10 points, 11 assists and his second game-winner of the season. He made a jumper at the overtime buzzer to give Philadelphia a 122-121 victory over Detroit on December 20.

Darrell Armstrong missed a pair of 3-pointers on the final possession and the Magic lost for the 10th time in 11 games.

"I got a good look," said Armstrong, who made 4-of-11 shots. "I had a shot to make it but it went off the back of the rim. I like taking shots in those situations. If it happens again tomorrow, I'll take a look at it."

Chris Gatling had 18 points and 11 boards and Chucky Atkins scored 15 points as none of Orlando's starters reached double figures.

Theo Ratliff had 18 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks for the Sixers, who were playing for the first time in five days and won for the sixth time in eight games. Philadelphia avenged a 110-15 loss at Orlando on November 10 in which Iverson scored 46 points.

"We play our best when we defend well," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "We got our energy back in the third quarter. Our defense got us back in because we executed as well as you can. We had trouble making shots, so the best way for us to get back in the game was get turnovers."

The Sixers appeared to be in trouble when Brown rested Iverson with 9:28 to go and Philadelphia trailing, 87-74. But Snow and fellow guard Aaron McKie got the Sixers back in it.

"I thought the key to the game was when Larry took Allen out in the fourth quarter and they made their run," Rivers said. "That's when you think we would make our run to put them away. I said on the bench, `If we don't make a run here, we're in trouble.' And we didn't."

Gatling's three-point play gave Orlando a 92-84 lead with 6:35 left, but McKie had a 3-pointer and Iverson a three-point play in a 10-2 burst that pulled Philadelphia into a 94-94 tie with 3:19 to go.

Gatling made two free throws but baskets by Ratliff and Iverson gave the Sixers their first lead since early in the second period at 98-96 with 2:12 left. Doleac made a jumper and McKie sank two free throws to set up the final 90 seconds.

Tyrone Hill scored 10 points and McKie added nine for the Sixers, who shot 42 percent (38-of-90) from the field and forced 19 turnovers, leading to 22 points.

Ratliff made 6-of-7 shots in his second game since returning from the injured list. In his first game back, he fouled out with five turnovers and no points in only 11 minutes.

Rookie Corey Maggette scored 14 points for the Magic, who shot 43 percent (35-of-82) and held a 48-41 rebounding advantage. Orlando's bench enjoyed a 73-23 scoring edge.

After committing 27 turnovers in Wednesday's loss at Toronto, the Magic committed just six in the first half and raced to a 59-46 lead. In the second quarter, they put together a 19-2 run by outhustling the Sixers, who heard some boos from the home crowd.

Maggette scored eight points and Atkins seven in the burst, which opened a 49-31 lead midway through the period. Sixers guard Larry Hughes, nursing a sore back, missed five shots and committed a turnover during that stretch.

"Our bench played lethargic," Brown said. "We had no energy or emotion. We've had a lot of first halves recently where we've given up a lot of points. Fortunately in this game, we were able to come back. We have to figure out a way to play both halves like we did the second half."

Trailing by 13 at halftime, Philadelphia used a half-court trap to get back in the game and forced 11 turnovers in the third quarter. Iverson scored nine straight points before a dunk by Ratliff cut the deficit to 62-61 with 6:26 left. But Gatling made seven free throws and Atkins added six points as Orlando took a 77-68 lead to the final period.
