Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- The site of last season's biggest win was the site of this season's first loss for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Philadelphia's franchise-record, season-opening, 10-game winning streak came to an unceremonious end as the 76ers played poorly and were routed, 88-73, by the Charlotte Hornets.

The 76ers were the NBA's last unbeaten team but were far from perfect tonight. They never led, shot just 34 percent (28-of-82) from the field, were outrebounded 60-39 and trailed by as many as 22 points.

"They weren't going to go 82-0," Hornets center Elden Campbell said. "They had to get a loss sometime."

Allen Iverson, whose willingness to involve his teammates in the offense was one of the reasons for Philadelphia's success, had his worst game of the season. The All-Star scored a season-low seven points on 3-of-17 shooting as he never got untracked.

"Iverson missed a lot of shots," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "If he's missing, it's good, but if he's making shots it's a different story."

"Allen Iverson is a phenomenal player," Campbell said. "We just tried to stay in front of him. We wanted him to take tough shots."

In Game One of last season's Eastern Conference first-round playoff series, Iverson scored 40 points to lead the Sixers to an upset win. Philadelphia went on to win the series in four games.

"We saw this as a game we needed to win to keep our winning streak alive," Charlotte swingman Eddie Robinson said. "We didn't look at them as far as their win streak. We just wanted to beat them. We knew they were 10-0 but that didn't really factor into it."

Although the Sixers were bad, the Hornets also were pretty good. En route to their third straight win, they used their muscle to open a 10-point halftime lead, then found the range by shooting 59 percent (10-of-17) in the third quarter.

"I think they were great defensively, executed phenomenally and took us out of everything we wanted to do," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "They played better than any team we played against all year and deserved to win."

Charlotte guard Baron Davis notched the first triple-double of his career with 12 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. It was the first by a Hornet since Anthony Mason against Toronto on March 31 of last season.

"We're coming together," Davis said. "We have to realize we're a defensive team first and we can get a lot of easy baskets when our defense is clicking."

Campbell scored a season-high 22 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked eight shots for the Hornets, who improved to 32-15 all-time against the Sixers, including 19-6 at home.

Neither team shot well in the first half as Charlotte managed 33 percent (14-of-43) while holding Philadelphia to 31 percent (13-of-42). Campbell scored 14 points as the Hornets pushed around the Sixers and opened a 42-32 lead.

Philadelphia made a half-hearted surge at the beginning of the third quarter, closing to 47-39 on a layup by George Lynch. But Charlotte responded with a 16-2 run that featured five points each by Davis and Jamal Mashburn.

A follow shot by Davis gave the Hornets their largest lead at 63-41 with 3:49 remaining. Mashburn scored 10 points in the third period, which ended with Charlotte holding a 69-53 bulge.

Mashburn had 16 points and 11 rebounds and P.J. Brown added 10 and 14 for the Hornets, who shot 39 percent (31-of-80) overall. Mashburn handed out seven assists.

Eric Snow, Matt Geiger and Vernon Maxwell scored 10 points each for the Sixers. Iverson was held below double figures for just the 12th time in 285 career games.
