Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers showed George Karl the type of play he has been asking for from his Milwaukee Bucks.

With tough defense and relentless rebounding, the 76ers cruised to a 97-83 victory over the Bucks, who again heard boos in their seventh straight home loss.

"We've lost seven in a row now (at home)," Bucks center Ervin Johnson said. "Then you hear the fans booing. Mentally, it gets you down."

During the slide, Karl has asked the Bucks to play tougher and do some of the dirty work needed to win in the NBA. Instead, Milwaukee never led and appeared to back off as Philadelphia set the tone with its hard-nosed play.

"They're not professional enough or angry enough (with the losing)," Karl said of his team. "And if it doesn't change, we're going to continue to get our (butt) kicked."

Allen Iverson scored 25 points to lead the 76ers, who improved to 3-0 against the Bucks this season. The league's top scorer at 30.2 points per game, Iverson has been held below 30 in his last five contests.

Iverson made just 8-of-25 shots but got both Sam Cassell and Ray Allen into foul trouble. He and Eric Snow combined to limit Milwaukee's starting guards to 21 points on 10-of-28 shooting.

The Sixers led 71-65 entering the fourth quarter and forced the Bucks into 1-of-10 shooting and six turnovers in the first 6 1/2 minutes, building their lead to 19 points. Milwaukee came up empty on 16 of its first 17 possessions of the period.

"I thought we defended the whole game," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "Certainly getting them into foul trouble helped, but I thought our defense in the second half was phenomenal, especially late in the third quarter and in the fourth quarter."

Former Buck Tyrone Hill scored 17 points on 7-of-7 shooting and Theo Ratliff added 13 and four blocks for Philadelphia, which shot 47 percent (33-of-70), made 28-of-39 free throws and forced 24 turnovers.

Glenn Robinson scored 24 points for the Bucks, who shot just 42 percent (36-of-85), attempted just 11 free throws and were beaten on the boards, 38-35.

"The personality of all our games against Philadelphia has been the same," Karl said. "We play for three quarters and then they turn up the defensive heat. They're a very solid team and right now we're not playing good enough to beat them."

For the second straight game, the Sixers never trailed. They opened with an 11-2 run and led 24-20 after one quarter. Hill scored eight points and Allen picked up three fouls.

"We knew that they were down coming into the game due to losing four in a row," Iverson said. "We just wanted to get a jump on them early and we got that done."

After shooting 1-of-7 in the first quarter, Iverson heated up with 12 points in the second period as Philadelphia extended its lead to 49-42 at halftime. Allen collected his fourth foul midway through the quarter.

Robinson scored eight points in the third quarter but was shut out in the final period. A 3-pointer by Snow capped a 15-2 run and gave Philadelphia its largest lead at 86-67 with 5:32 to go.

Matt Geiger and George Lynch scored 10 points apiece and Snow added nine and nine assists for the Sixers. Former Sixer Tim Thomas scored 11 points and Cassell collected 11 assists for the Bucks.
