Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson scored 35 points and was virtually unstoppable down the stretch as the Philadelphia 76ers rode a strong second half from their superstar to an 84-79 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

Charlotte snapped Philadelphia's franchise-record season-opening 10-game winning streak on November 22, bottling up Iverson, who managed a season-low seven points. The Hornets appeared on their way to another victory over the league's top team with a 45-41 halftime lead and Iverson struggling to 10 first-half points on 4-of-13 shooting.

But "The Answer" turned up his game after intermission.

"You know he's going to come up big," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "We did a credible job in the first half but the second half, he just takes over and he's going to find a way to beat you. He took over. He made some incredible shots -- it's as simple as that. If you've got a player that capable, you're going to go to him. More times than not, he's going to come through for you."

Iverson knocked down 7-of-13 shots and was 9-of-10 at the line in the second half as Philadelphia posted its 10th win in 11 games and second in three meetings with the Hornets this season.

"His shot selection in the second half was a lot better, but he's playing great," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "I thought he guarded (David) Wesley pretty good. He's a terrific offensive player and a good defensive player. You come to expect a good game from Allen. I don't look at him having games where he's not going to have at least one great half."

With his team clinging to a 68-66 lead with 7:09 to play, Iverson took over. He drilled a 15-footer, a 3-pointer from the left sideline and converted a three-point play before George Lynch's free throw capped the 9-0 burst, giving Philadelphia a 77-66 cushion.

"I started off pretty decent, then I missed some easy shots that I normally make," Iverson said. "It got frustrating, but I stayed with it. In the second half, I looked for opportunities early. I hit a couple of shots, I missed a couple of shots, but I hit the ones that really counted at the end."

"That 9-0 run (in the fourth quarter) is what really what hurt us," Charlotte guard David Wesley said. "We fought, we gave ourselves our a chance and cut the lead to four. We played a good game, they played a good game, they just beat us."

Iverson also led the Sixers to a 95-74 triumph over the Hornets here on December 1, scoring 37 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Philadelphia eliminated Charlotte in four games in a first-round playoff series last season.

The teams will have their fourth and final regular-season meeting in Charlotte on February 24.

Lynch scored 17 points and grabbed 16 rebounds and Aaron McKie also contributed 17 points for Philadelphia, which shot 42 percent (31-of-74) and held a 45-40 rebounding advantage.

"Charlotte knows that hopefully it's going to between us two in the (Eastern Conference) finals," Lynch said. "They are going to play us tough. Besides us, Charlotte is playing very well in the East and we had to step up and take the challenge. That's what it was, a great challenge. Neither team wanted to give up an inch."

Elden Campbell had 18 points and 11 rebounds and Baron Davis added 16 points for Charlotte, which has lost eight of 11 since a season-high seven-game winning streak. The Hornets slipped one-half game behind first-place Milwaukee in the Central Division. The Bucks posted a 101-95 victory at Washington on Monday.

Wesley scored 15 points and Jamal Mashburn and P.J. Brown had 11 apiece for the Hornets, who shot 39.5 percent (30-of-76) and scored 19 points off turnovers.

Wesley had a three-pointer and added another basket before Campbell beat the first-half buzzer with a layup to give the Hornets a four-point lead.

Brown's free throw opened the second-half scoring before Iverson began to shoot himself out of his first-half funk with consecutive baskets.

Philadelphia shaved the deficit to one on three occasions during the third period but was not able to overtake Charlotte until Lynch scored on back-to-back trips to put the Sixers in front, 62-61, with 1:32 left in the quarter.

Iverson added two free throws as Philadelphia went to the final period with a three-point lead.
