Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- What seemed to hurt Allen Iverson most was not his inflamed elbow, but when a referee told him he had to go back to the bench to have the bandage rewrapped.

Iverson scored 30 points and dished out seven assists despite the injury, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 100-94 victory over the Detroit Pistons, who saw star forward Grant Hill limp to the bench late in the first quarter with a recurring ankle problem and barely play thereafter.

Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said before the game that Iverson should not play because of the injury, and by the time it was over, the Pistons probably agreed -- for a different reason. Iverson did not shoot much from the outside, but his slashing cuts to the basket and his passing shredded the Detroit defense.

George Lynch added 17 points and 15 rebounds for the Sixers (48-32), who have won four in a row and six of their last seven to move within one game of third-place New York in the Eastern Conference.

"We've got to concentrate on winning 50 games," Lynch said. "If New York can slip up, lose a few and help us out, that would be great. We're trying to keep our home-court advantage."

After a close first half, the 76ers took over in the third quarter, holding Detroit without a field goal for nearly five minutes during a 13-3 surge. Tyrone Hill scored five points and Aaron McKie hit a 3-pointer during the run, which was capped by Toni Kukoc's driving layup off a pass from Iverson that made it 76-62 with 2:09 left in the period.

The Pistons managed a 14-5 surge late in the fourth quarter, cutting the deficit to 95-87 on a 3-pointer by Lindsey Hunter with 2:37 left. But Iverson was fouled and hit both free throws with 56 seconds to play, pushing the lead to 10 points, and that seemed to end the threat.

Already playing with a broken toe and bad shoulder, Iverson seemed to hardly be affected by the elbow problem in the first half, when he hit 10-of-17 and scored 24 points. But after the half he stopped looking for his shot, and in the third quarter, dished out four assists.

"The second half, it just stiffened up," Iverson said. "It was bothering me real bad. It's hard to stay out there, because I'm hurt. If I wasn't hurt I'd be able to do it. It's tough because it's my shooting shoulder, my shooting elbow and my big toe. That's my speed and my shot."

Grant Hill tried to play through an injury of his own but found that, unlike Iverson, he was not able to help his teammates.

"It seems like every time we get something going, it's either my back or now this," he said. "I told (Pistons interim coach) George (Irvin) that it was to the point that I was hindering the team and to take me out. The first two or three possessions of the second half I just couldn't get down the court."

In the Pistons' last game, Wednesday against Miami, trainers iced Hill's ankle on the bench when he came out for a break in the second half. Tonight, that didn't seem to help.

"There's not really a lot of swelling," Hill said. "It happened about two weeks ago. When I put pressure on it, when I run, it really hurts. It's even changed the way I shoot free throws because the pain was really bad. It's frustrating, because we've been treating it and it doesn't seem like it's getting a lot better."

Jerry Stackhouse led the Pistons with 15 points and Jerome Williams had 12 and 12 rebounds.

Stackhouse gave Detroit a scare in the first quarter when he drove into the lane and grimaced in pain as he went into the air. He came down and fell to the floor, writhing and clutching his knee. He finally went to the bench but was able to return later in the period.

Philadelphia moved 1 1/2 games ahead of Charlotte in the race for fourth place and home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

The Pistons could have clinched a playoff berth with a victory but instead saw their lead over Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference slip to 1 1/2 games. Detroit needs one more win or a loss by the Bucks to nail down its fourth playoff berth in five seasons.

"We still feel we can get in," Hill said. "We've just got to win one more game. This was a tough game. Philly always plays us well here. We just have go and get a win these next three games."
