Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Coming into the season, the Eastern Conference was considered wide open. The Philadelphia 76ers are changing some opinions early on.

The 76ers rolled to their 10th straight win and remained the NBA's lone unbeaten team with a 114-90 rout of the Boston Celtics.

Allen Iverson had 26 points, eight assists and five steals and Theo Ratliff scored 21 points as the Sixers continue to serve notice to the rest of the league that the East may have a dominant team.

The winning streak is Philadelphia's longest since a 12-game run in 1990. The 76ers moved within five victories of the 1949-50 Washington Capitols and the 1993-94 Houston Rockets, who share the NBA record for consecutive wins to start a season.

"It's only 10 games, but I think it is important to stockpile these wins," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "You take them when you can get them because we ran into injuries last year, and that could happen just as easliy this year."

The Sixers broke open the contest with a 25-8 run that spanned the second and third quarters and opened a 69-46 cushion with 9:13 left in the third.

In addition to registering its highest point total of the season, Philadelphia used its patented defense to give the Celtics fits, forcing 25 turnovers. The Sixers converted them into 35 points.

The key to beating the Celtics is to hold their 1-2 punch of Antoine Walker and Paul Pierce in check. The Sixers did a magnificant job of that, allowing the tandem to score a combined 21 points on 9-of-33 shooting. Walker collected 13 points and Pierce added nine -- only three after the first quarter.

The duo entered averaging a combined 45 points per contest.

"They're the best team in the NBA and they play with great intensity," Pierce said. "We didn't match it, we got blown away. We played very sloppy basketball. It's tough losing like this, especially in our house. With a team like Philadelphia, the building is not going to win the game for you."

"The Philadelphia 76ers made us look bad tonight with great basketball," Celtics coach Rick Pitino added. "From the passing standpoint to every phase of the game, they played terrific and that's why they're 10-0. We played our poorest game of the season, unfortunately."

Eric Williams scored 22 points off the bench for the Celtics, who have lost seven of the last 10 games in the series.

"They come into the game thinking defense, and that's the difference," Williams said. "They just came out and jumped all over us. I came in tonight just to get some shots and get to the line, but basically, I was out there to guard Iverson. That's a tough assignment."

Philadelphia, which began a stretch of nine of 11 games away from home, improved to 5-0 on the road this season. The Sixers will face Western Conference powerhouses San Antonio, Portland and the Los Angeles Lakers during this span.

"We are in the midst of nine of 11 on the road, so I thought it was important for us to play well tonight," Brown said.

Sixers guard Aaron McKie came off the bench and scored 16 of his 17 points in the second quarter.

With Philadelphia leading, 44-38, midway through the period, McKie scored seven straight points to ignite the decisive run. The 76ers ended the half with a 15-6 spurt to take a 59-44 lead and scored the first six points of the third quarter.

Pierce followed with his lone basket of the half, but Tyrone Hill answered with a layup and a 12-footer, pushing Philadelphia's lead to 23 points.

The Sixers took a 86-68 advantage into the final period and Boston made a charge early, scoring the first seven points to draw within 11 at the 10:04 mark.

But Iverson scored four points during an 8-0 run that pushed the lead to 94-75 with 6:58 left, and the Sixers coasted from there.

"We're just having a lot of fun out there," Hill said. "(Iverson) came to training camp and said he was gonna do this and do that. Right now, he's going out there and doing it. His scoring may be down, but we are winning games."

"Games like tonight are fun," Iverson added. "Guys were out there pressing us the whole game. Me and (point guard) Eric Snow have never been pressed all game like that. They do it to shut you down, but it just opens up things for us."

Snow had 14 points and 12 assists for Philadelphia, which shot 49 percent (43-of-87) from the field and hit 6-of-13 from three-point range.

Bryant Stith scored 15 points and Tony Battie collected 15 and 12 rebounds for the Celtics, who shot 41 percent (33-of-81) but made only 5-of-25 from behind the arc.

"They understand and know their roles, thats why they're 10-0," Walker said. "Just like us, they basically have the same team as last year, but the difference is they are very consistent. We just didn't have it tonight."
