Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers might have found a way to slow down Allen Iverson in the second half but they couldn't find a hole in the toughest defense in the league.

Iverson did the bulk of his damage in the first half, scoring 25 of his 30 points and dishing out seven of his 10 assists before the break, but the Philadelphia 76ers still rolled to a 107-94 victory over the Trail Blazers.

"Heart feels good after a game like this," Iverson said. "Undermanned, we got two starters out. Our only true center besides Theo (Ratliff) is out. ... If you look at their team on paper you can see how much potential they have to win a championship. So many great guys on that team. It was big win for us. It was one of the biggest road wins we've had, being that those guys are so tough."

The 76ers, who lead the league in opponent field-goal percentage (40 percent) and are second in points allowed (85.7), held the Trail Blazers to 42 percent shooting in the second half (15-of-36), after allowing them to connect at a 53 percent clip (24-of-45) in the first half.

As good as their defense was, their offense was even better, whether it was Iverson slicing through the leaden Blazers with slashing moves and pinpoint passes or his teammates shooting the lights out.

"This was our finest game of the year," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We don't shoot 50 percent as a team and we were at 66 percent in the first half. Allen is always out there. He has a big heart and made me proud of him tonight."

Theo Ratliff added 19 points and 10 rebounds, George Lynch scored 14 points and Aaron McKie had 10 boards and six assists for the Sixers, who had lost their last two and were playing without point guard Eric Snow, power forward Tyrone Hill and reserve center Matt Geiger.

"This is a situation we've been in before so we know how to handle it," said McKie, who also had 10 points and four steals. "I just like to play. I like to be out there. I feel sick when I'm not out there."

Despite being without two of their key big men, the Sixers contained the Blazers' powerful frontcourt, outrebounding Portland, 42-35.

Steve Smith led Portland with 17 points. Rasheed Wallace scored 14 and Damon Stoudamire added 14 and nine assists. Arvydas Sabonis, back after re-injuring his surgically repaired left knee, had 13 points and 11 rebounds.

"We got more than we anticipated out of Sabonis tonight," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "He was playing fairly well when we could get him the ball. He was scoring, he was clogging the middle, he was rebounding and it was something we needed. That was a good aspect of the game tonight."

The Sixers went on a 12-3 run late in the third quarter, opening an 85-71 lead on a 22-footer by former Blazer McKie with 32 seconds left. They never let the Blazers closer than 10 points in the fourth quarter.

"The Sixers did the things tonight that have put them in the position they are," Dunleavy said. "They defended, they played hard, they got opportunity baskets in the open court and they took us off the dribble and got to the free-throw line."

The Sixers won their first game in Portland after five straight losses.

The defensive-minded Snow had started every game this season but underwent a CT scan Wednesday that revealed a stress fracture in his right ankle. He is second on the team in scoring average with a career-high 12.2 points and leads the club with 6.6 assists per game.

After a tight first quarter, the Sixers went ahead to stay on a free throw by Nazr Mohammed that made it 41-40 with 8:17 to go in the second period.

A 9-3 surge later in the quarter, capped by Iverson's 14-footer with 1:56 left, gave the Sixers their largest lead of the first half, 63-51.

The Trail Blazers got as close as 73-68 when Wallace dunked with 7:40 to go in the third quarter. But the Sixers ran off the next six points, starting a 12-3 charge.

Jumaine Jones and Ratliff scored four points apiece in the run, which McKie closed by connecting from 22 feet with 32 seconds to go.
