Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Eddie Jones came home and gave the Charlotte Hornets a rare win on the road.

Jones scored 27 points, including a 22-foot bank shot with 2.2 seconds to go that gave the Hornets their fourth straight win, a 95-93 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

The final four minutes featured six lead changes and two ties before Jones gave the Hornets only their eighth win in 25 road contests.

"I wanted to win. I wasn't going to put that ball in nobody else's hands but myself," Jones said. "I told everybody, me and Derrick (Coleman) were gonna run a pick and roll, and if I was gonna come off the pick open, I was pulling up."

Jones dribbled around a pick, pulled up just inside the top of the 3-point circle and launched a shot that twice bounced off the backboard before dropping through.

"It's a big win for us, because we're on the road, we're not that good of a road team," Jones said. "We just wanted to come in here and get a win."

On the final possession, the 76ers used NBA scoring leader Allen Iverson as a decoy. He dribbled toward the basket and passed to the right wing to Aaron McKie, whose jumper at the buzzer was way off. Both Jones and McKie played collegiately at Temple.

"We had two seconds, when I got the ball all I could do was just throw it up," McKie said. "Hope someone can make a play underneath, and maybe get a foul. But the shot didn't go anywhere near the basket."

Jones made 8-of-20 shots and padded his league-leading steals average with five. He also hit a 3-pointer with 3:38 left to give Charlotte its first lead at 87-86 and set up the seesaw stretch.

"No question we had this game. We just didn't do the things at the end that we were supposed to do to win," Iverson said. "A guy makes a jump shot at the top of the key, bounces off the front of the rim and goes in. I couldn't believe he made that shot. I guess it was just meant to be."

Iverson scored 28 points for the 76ers, who fell to 12-5 in games decided by three points or less. They fell to 0-3 against Charlotte this season, losing both games at the First Union Center.

After Jones' 3-pointer, Iverson answered with a runner. But Chucky Brown made a pair of jumpers around one by McKie, giving Charlotte a 91-90 lead with 1:41 to go.

Iverson made 1-of-2 free throws to tie it and the teams traded empty possessions before the Hornets got a break. A deflection appeared to go out of bounds off Jones' legs but Charlotte kept possession and former Sixer Coleman made two foul shots for a 93-91 lead with 32 seconds left.

Iverson made a 19-footer with 23 seconds remaining, setting up Jones' game-winner.

Elden Campbell had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Anthony Mason added 15 and 12 for the Hornets, who shot 41 percent (35-of-85) but held a 57-41 rebounding advantage.

"Anytime you win under these circumstances, shooting quite poorly throughout the game and fighting back, and getting a good victory like this, is something to build from," said Charlotte coach Paul Silas, whose team begins a five-game homestand. "We made big hoops, got big rebounds and put-backs down the stretch."

Coleman spent most of the day in a Charlotte court and joined the team just before game time. Normally a starter, he had 14 points and seven rebounds off the bench.

"It was a long hectic day for me," Coleman said. "Throughout the process I was talking to the coach, and he said to me, `If you are going to come, come for the support. If you feel you can play, you are certainly welcome to do so.' I was tired both physically and mentally from the day, but once I got on the court, and worked up a sweat, I felt more comfortable out there. I'm just eager to get on the plane and get home, get some sleep and prepare for tomorrow."

"I thought Derrick Coleman was superb as well as Chucky Brown, and of course EJ, what can you say? He's the man," Silas said.

Matt Geiger and George Lynch scored 13 points apiece and Tyrone Hill added 12 and 14 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 45.5 percent (40-of-88) and made only 11 turnovers. Theo Ratliff had 12 points and five blocks.

The Sixers spent most of the first half beating the Hornets down the floor, opening an early 12-point lead. They held a 23-10 edge in fast-break points but got a bit sloppy at the end of the half and took a 48-47 lead into intermission.

Iverson scored 19 points and Jones 18 in the first half but both were quiet in the third quarter with four and two, respectively. Lynch scored eight points in the period as Philadelphia widened its lead to 73-79 entering the final quarter.
