Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- It was an immediate reversal of fortune for the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat.

Just over 24 hours after coming out flat in a disappointing loss to the Orlando Magic, the 76ers used a late second-quarter surge to post a 96-80 triumph over the Heat, who were a day removed from one of their most thrilling victories of the season.

Allen Iverson, who was benched for the last matchup between the teams, scored 33 points and Toni Kukoc sparked a decisive run that bridged the second and third quarters. Eric Snow added 12 points and 10 assists for a Philadelphia squad that was coming off a 92-80 loss in Orlando.

"This game meant a lot," Iverson said. "It made us forget about the last game. I left that game in Orlando and once we lost I just wanted to concentrate on tonight's game."

"We played hard against a quality team," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "If you have any hopes of doing anything in the playoffs, you have to beat quality teams."

The Heat, who posted a dramatic 95-94 overtime win against the archrival New York Knicks on Sunday night, came out strong but offered little resistance in the second half. Jamal Mashburn scored 16 points and Alonzo Mourning 13 as Miami had its seven-game winning streak snapped.

"They needed a win bad and we didn't play like we wanted to win," Mourning said. "The effort tonight was drastically different compared to the effort we have shown in our previous games."

"You can use that as an excuse but there is just too much at stake," Heat coach Pat Riley. "They played yesterday and it could have been somewhat of a hangover but we had to continue to stay close and we didn't."

The game was tied, 31-31, with 6:16 to go in the second quarter when the 76ers closed the half with a 14-6 burst. Kukoc's 3-pointer ignited the run and Snow scored the final five points of the half.

Philadelphia made 11-of-21 shots in the quarter while holding the Heat to 28 percent (5-of-18) shooting. The 76ers tied a franchise record with no turnovers in the second quarter and tied a First Union Center record with just two in the first half.

Philadelphia carried the momentum over into the second half as Tyrone Hill had five of his nine points in a 7-0 burst to open the third quarter.

The win kept Philadelphia one game ahead of Charlotte for fourth place in the Eastern Conference and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Philadelphia also remained within three games of the Knicks for third place in the conference.

Miami remained one game behind the Indiana Pacers for first place in the conference and is just two games ahead of New York in the Atlantic Division.

The Heat looked well rested early on, scoring the first seven points of the game. Philadelphia misfired on its first seven attempts from the field and did not record a field goal until 4:37 was gone in the contest.

The Sixers fought back and the lead changed hands several times through the first six minutes of the second quarter. Two free throws by Otis Thorpe with 6:16 left knotted the contest, 31-31, before Kukoc got the Sixers rolling.

After Kukoc's 25-footer, Thorpe sank a nine-footer for Miami. Philadelphia's Matt Geiger had consecutive baskets for a five-point lead before Mourning sank two free throws. Iverson had a driving layup with 2:34 left for a 40-35 edge but Mourning countered with a dunk off a feed from Tim Hardaway.

Snow then drained a 3-pointer and had a driving layup in the final 98 seconds of the half to open a 45-37 advantage. Philadelphia kept the pressure on after the break as George Lynch and Hill had layups 30 seconds apart before Hill converted a three-point play for a 52-37 lead.

"We kept our composure after a slow start," Lynch said. "We showed a lot of character tonight after a frustrating loss."

The Sixers pushed the lead to 21 with 89 seconds left in the quarter as Iverson buried a 24-footer. Miami was unable to slice the deficit to single digits in the fourth quarter and rested its starters most of the final period.

Iverson was 11-of-23 from the field and 9-of-12 from the field.

"He was just getting off his shots tonight. We knew that he was going to come in and be aggressive," Hardaway said. "He was getting by us, making shots, making things happen."
