Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson matched a season high with 29 points, including the go-ahead basket with 2:29 to play, as the Philadelphia 76ers survived a serious fourth-quarter scare and outlasted the last-place Washington Wizards, 93-87.

After a rough 2-2 road trip, the first-place Sixers appeared to be chomping at the bit to keep their perfect home record intact, running out to a 44-28 lead midway through the second quarter. But the Wizards did not go away and took advantage of Philadelphia's complacency in the second half before taking an 87-86 lead on Rod Strickland's free throws with 2:42 to play.

Iverson came downcourt with a sense of urgency and split a pair of defenders before rising to the basket for a layup that put the Sixers in front to stay, 88-87.

"I just had the ball isolated on the wing," Iverson said. "It was a post-up play, but I had the option to go baseline before we set up a screen for Theo (Ratliff). Coach always gives me the green light to go baseline in traffic, and I was able do that and make the shot."

Eric Snow and Ratliff combined to make 5-of-6 free throws as the Sixers closed with a 7-0 run, improving the NBA's best record to 12-2 while remaining unbeaten in six home games.

Iverson was 10-of-24 from the floor, 8-of-8 at the line, grabbed six rebounds and handed out three assists in 41 minutes. Snow and Ratliff finished with 18 points apiece for Philadelphia, which opened the season with 10 straight victories before dropping two of three on the road, including Saturday's embarrasing 96-76 setback at San Antonio.

"All that mattersJ́finding a way to win and learn from what we did wrong," Iverson said. "I really don't think we relaxed, I think the ball bounced different ways. First, we were making the shots, then they were making the shots. When a couple of guys get hot, it's hard to stop anybody in this league. Those guys acted like men tonight and tried to get back in the game. Fortunately for us, they couldn't do it."

Mitch Richmond scored 26 points for the Wizards, who have lost nine of their last 11 games.

"We came out and played with a better intensity," Richmond said. "We had opportunities to win the game down the stretch. It didn't go our way. We didn't hang our heads. We had looks in the first half and they didn't go in. We felt that we could come back."

Iverson hit a pair of free throws to give Philadelphia a 28-19 lead after one period and made a layup before feeding Aaron McKie for a jumper that increased the advantage to 13 points less than two minutes into the second quarter.

A jumper by Snow made it a 16-point cushion with 6:37 left in the first half before the Wizards made their move.

Richmond hit a 3-pointer, Felipe Lopez followed with a basket and Jahidi White dunked as Washington closed to 48-43 less than a minute before intermission.

Iverson and Snow appeared to give momentum back to Philadelphia when they hit back-to-back jumpers to close the half, making it a nine-point lead. But again, the Wizards showed resilience.

Coming off its worst performance of the season, a 102-75 home drubbing against Atlanta, Washington remained within striking distance and used a big fourth-quarter charge to overtake the Sixers.

Trailing 82-70 with 10:14 to play after Snow made 1-of-2 at the line, the Wizards went on a blistering 17-4 run, sparked by eight straight points from Hamilton.

Ratliff answered with two from the line, but White dunked and, after two free throws by Iverson, Juwan Howard hit a nine-footer, Richmond connected from 25 feet and Strickland made two free throws to put Washington in front.

"The second half, we took so many quick shots that they had so many runouts before we could get our defense set," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "It looked like there were 15 straight trips where we had either a bad shot or a turnover. We had a couple of shots down the stretch and they missed some open looks. When you have a team that has Strickland, Howard and Richmond at the end of the game or in the fourth quarter, you got problems. We feel very fortunate we won the game."

The Wizards missed their last three shots, while Iverson and the Sixers ran of final seven points.

Strickland had 12 points, seven rebounds and nine assists and Howard and White combined for 24 points and 23 rebounds for Washington, which shot 45 percent (37-of-83) and held a 47-43 rebounding edge.

"We can't accept this as a moral victory," Wizards coach Leonard Hamilton said. "If we can channel those emotions on a consistent basis, we could have a pretty good season. It's perplexing to me that we can show so much pride and determination on the road and then be at home and not play with those emotions. We have to overcome this in order to be successful."

Hill and McKie scored 11 points apiece for the Sixers, who shot 43 percent (32-of-75) and forced 23 turnovers.
