Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers stole a game from the Washington Wizards.

Energized by 19 steals, the 76ers cruised to a 93-84 victory over the Wizards, their season-high seventh straight home win.

Allen Iverson scored 24 points and Toni Kukoc added 23 off the bench for the 76ers (46-32), who maintained fourth place in the Eastern Conference and added to their highest win total in 10 years.

Philadelphia had nine steals in the first quarter, when it took the lead for good. The Wizards rallied on several occasions but the Sixers always answered with a run, usually punctuated by a steal.

"Tonight we were pretty active defensively," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "I don't know if a lot of steals is a good thing. Sometimes we gamble too much and give guys scoring opprotunities who would not normally get them. We defended pretty good tonight, our guards in particular."

Kukoc had three steals, Iverson four and backcourt mate Eric Snow added five. Philadelphia forced 23 turnovers and had 30 fast-break points.

"I get most of my steals when guys have their attention on other things," Snow said. "It's an instinct thing, but it's also something I work on during the summer, trying to find ways I could steal the ball. Allen's steals come more from his quickness."

"I think we're playing the passing lanes. Guys are getting their hands on balls," Iverson said. "I've got to talk to the statistician, because I know I had way more than that."

Rookie Richard Hamilton scored 19 points for the Wizards, who have lost two in a row following a two-game winning streak. Washington never led after the first six minutes.

"When you give up 19 steals and (23) turnovers, I mean, who in the hell you think you're gonna beat?" Wizards coach Darrell Walker said. "You're not gonna beat anybody. ... We're not good enough for that, nowhere near good enough for that. Not even close."

Trailing 9-6, Philadelphia put together a 13-2 burst that featured two steals by Iverson and nine points by Tyrone Hill, whose steal and tip gave the Sixers a 19-11 lead with 2:42 left in the first quarter.

"We turned the ball over a lot more than expected tonight," Hamilton said. "Early in the game, when we were supposed to keep our poise, they pressured us a couple of times and we threw it away."

Kukoc had 10 points and two steals in the second period, when Philadelphia led by 10 points on three occasions before settling for a 47-43 lead.

The Wizards crept within 54-51 on a jumper by Gerald King with 8:39 left in the third quarter before the Sixers ran off five straight points, capped by Snow's steal and dunk. Washington cut the deficit to five points, but Snow made two free throws, Iverson hit a jumper and Kukoc drilled a 3-pointer for a 68-56 lead with 2:54 to go in the period.

Philadelphia led 71-62 entering the fourth period and maintained a bulge of at least eight points thereafter. Kukoc scored 10 points and Iverson eight in the quarter.

Hill scored 17 points, Snow handed out 10 assists and Theo Ratliff grabbed 10 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 47 percent (35-of-74) from the field and committed only 13 turnovers.

Juwan Howard scored 13 points and Tracy Murray added 12 for the Wizards, who shot 41 percent (32-of-78) and held a 50-38 edge on the glass.

Philadelphia took the season series, 3-1, and became the first team to win a home game.
