Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson brought the Philadelphia 76ers back. Larry Hughes put them over the top.

Iverson scored 41 points and Hughes tipped in a miss at the buzzer as the 76ers rallied from a 21-point deficit for a 92-90 victory over the New Jersey Nets.

Iverson made 15-of-28 shots and 10-of-10 free throws as he eclipsed 40 points for the third time in the last four games and sixth time this season. Philadelphia is 3-3 in those games.

The NBA scoring leader answered a 3-pointer by New Jersey's Keith Van Horn with one of his own, forging a 90-90 tie with 22 seconds left.

With 12 seconds to go, Eric Snow forced a 10-second violation against Nets star point guard Stephon Marbury, who moved the ball upcourt too slowly.

"I don't know what happened out there," Nets coach Don Casey said. "I was trying to move players. I didn't want to call a timeout. We had a nice flow and you didn't want them to set up defensively."

"I've seen 10-seconds calls but not in the last possession of a game like that, a tie game," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "They shut the 24-second clock out so it's hard. I'm sure they're thinking, We're going to take as much off the clock so as not to give us an opportunity."

Iverson drove but missed a layup. Forward Theo Ratliff missed a follow shot before Hughes -- the subject of trade rumors -- soared and tapped in the game-winner at the horn.

"Once we saw how they were playing it, that we could clear one side out, it was strictly rebound," Hughes said. "We told him just put the ball up there. Theo had the first look at it. He missed itt but it was light enough off the rim where I could just put it in. I knew it was going in."

"The great thing is that Allen penetrated, which makes the big guys come off to block," Brown said. "That gives you an offensive rebounding opportunity."

Both Iverson and Hughes are headed to All-Star Weekend in the Bay area -- Iverson as a starter for the Eastern Conference and Hughes as an entrant in the Slam-Dunk contest.

"Allen said he was going to shoot it where we had a chance at an offensive rebound," Brown said. "I was ggoing to comment to the players, because he's always saying how he's never made a game-winning shot. I thought, he's going to make a game-winning shot and run to San Francisco. Lo and behold, Theo gets a kick tip and keeps it alive and Larry gets an offensive rebound. Now he runs to San Francisco with a game-winning shot, which is maybe better."

Hughes scored just four points on 2-of-8 shooting. Snow had 12 points and 14 assists and Ratliff added 10 and 10 rebounds for the Sixers (27-22), who enter the All-Star break one win behind last season's total.

"That's the way I hoped to go into the break -- with a `W,'" Iverson said. "It didn't matter how many points (I scored). I just wanted to win. We fought so hard. It would have been terrible to get a 'moral victory.'"

Kendall Gill scored 21 points and Marbury added 17 and nine assists for the Nets (19-30), who have three more wins than they collected last season. However, New Jersey has dropped seven of nine overall and eight in a row on the road.

Philadelphia went 3-1 against New Jersey this season as Iverson averaged 38.5 points in the four games. He scored 42 in a 99-94 loss at New Jersey on December 23.

Iverson scored 13 points in the fourth quarter, when the Sixers trailed by as many as nine points. His 14-footer capped an 11-2 burst and pulled Philadelphia into an 81-81 tie with 3:38 to go.

Marbury answered with a three-point play and after Iverson made a layup, Van Horn drilled a 3-pointer for an 87-83 lead with 2:44 remaining. Ratliff responded with a dunk and Iverson sank a jumper to tie it again with 1:27 left.

George Lynch had nine points and 12 rebounds for the Sixers, who overcame 41.5 percent (34-of-82) shooting and 23 turnovers with a 52-28 rebounding advantage. Philadelphia improved to 12-4 in games decided by three points or less.

Scott Burrell scored 15 points -- all on 3-pointers -- and Van Horn and Kerry Kittles added 13 apiece for the Nets, who shot 47 percent (33-of-70), including 10-of-22 from behind the arc.

"We've had a number of disppointments this year, whicch hopefully will be remedied in the second half," Van Horn said. "You don't normally see stuff like this happen."

With Iverson again serving as a one-man show, the Nets used a 10-0 run in which four players scored to open a 26-18 lead after one quarter. Iverson scored 12 points in the period.

Iverson took a rest in the second quarter and the Sixers fell apart. With Iverson on the bench, New Jersey went on a 12-2 burst featuring two 3-pointers by Burrell. A driving layup by Gill gave the Nets their largest lead at 50-29 with 5:03 left before halftime.

An 18-footer by Iverson triggered a 15-2 spurt that closed the half and pulled Philadelphia within 56-48 at halftime. Iverson scored six points and Snow added five, including a 3-pointer with 6.8 seconds left.

The surge continued in the third quarter as the Sixers scored 11 of the first 13 points, taking a 59-58 lead on a three-point play by Snow with 6:32 remaining. Philadelphia still held a 70-69 lead before a basket by Kittles and two jumpers by Gill gave New Jersey a 75-70 advantage entering the final period.

Johnny Newman made a 3-pointer and Gill added a free throw to open the final period.
