Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson had one of his worst shooting nights, but when the undermanned Philadelphia 76ers needed to score, he did.

Iverson scored 18 points, including Philadelphia's last eight, as the 76ers continued their mastery of the Vancouver Grizzlies with an ugly 83-79 victory.

Iverson, who was bothered by a sore hip, shot just 6-of-20 from the field but his 27-footer gave the 76ers the lead for good, 81-79, with 1:58 to play.

"We'll take it. It's an NBA game; we never underestimate anybody," Iverson said. "It's kind of frustrating having the lead we had and giving it up. I feel good because of the win."

Vancouver, which made just 5-of-24 shots in the fourth quarter, had a chance to tie it but Michael Dickerson missed a layup with 1:42 to go. George Lynch then blocked a short jumper by Shareef Abdur-Rahim but Philadelphia failed to build the lead as Iverson missed a 12-footer with 1:21 to go.

"It was hard-fought. They played hard in the second half," Lynch said. "We knew, if we kept it tight, we were the more experienced team."

Mike Bibby, who had 17 points and nine assists, missed a 19-footer that would have tied the score with one minute left. The Sixers again failed to build the lead as Aaron McKie missed a 3-pointer 20 seconds later.

The Grizzlies failed on their final chance when Michael Dickerson missed a 15-footer from the top of the key with 12 seconds left. Abdur-Rahim got the rebound but also missed. After the ball squirted out of Vancouver's Grant Long's hands, Tony Kukoc came up with it and passed to Iverson, who got fouled and sank two free throws with 5.8 seconds left.

McKie scored 16 points off the bench and Kukoc added 12 for Philadelphia (16-4), which completed a 3-2 road trip and remained tied with the Utah Jazz for the best record in the NBA.

The Sixers, who made only 1-of-12 shots from behind the arc, had just 10 players in uniform. Matt Geiger sat out with a right ankle sprain and Tyrone Hill has right quadriceps tendinitis.

"As banged up as we are, and they played as good as you can in the third quarter, it's nice to come up with a win," coach Larry Brown said. "Defense was phenomenal in the fourth quarter. Probably the best we've played."

Theo Ratliff had 10 points and 10 rebounds and Lynch added eight and eight for the Sixers.

Dickerson scored 20 points and Abdur-Rahim added 12 for Vancouver, which has lost nine straight meetings with Philadlephia after winning the first game between the teams on January 5, 1996.

"It's a tough one," coach Sidney Lowe said. "I thought our guys, for the most part, gave a good effort. We didn't come out sharp in the first quarter but we hung in there and picked up the defense and were able to get back into the ballgame."

Bibby scored eight points in a 12-2 tear that he capped with a 15-footer, giving the Grizzlies a 61-50 lead with 7:31 left in the third. Vancouver's biggest lead was 68-54 when Abdur-Rahim dunked with 5:29 remaining.

Philadelphia closed the third with a 9-2 burst, capped by McKie's layup to trim the margin to 70-63.

The Sixers, who had been 0-4 when trailing after three quarters, opened the fourth with a 12-5 surge. McKie's 15-foot jumper capped the run and tied it at 75-75 with 5:25 to go.

Todd MacCulloch scored eight of his 11 points in the first quarter as Philadelphia built a 20-13 lead. The 7-0 center had all 11 of his points and six rebounds in the first half, helping the Sixers take a 46-43 lead into the locker room.
