Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Bruised and battered, the Philadelphia 76ers are limping their way into the NBA record books.

Allen Iverson scored 16 of his 27 points in the pivotal fourth quarter as the 76ers extended their road winning streak to 13 games with an 86-81 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

With starting point guard Eric Snow and center Matt Geiger already out with injuries, the Sixers were without forward Toni Kukoc, who did not make the trip due to back spasms. Iverson had his forearm taped and Theo Ratliff appeared to aggravate a wrist injury midway through the third quarter.

Led by its All-Star guard, however, Philadelphia matched the fifth-longest road winning streak in NBA history and moved within three victories of tying the league mark. The Los Angeles Lakers reeled off 16 straight road victories as part of an NBA-record 33-game winning streak during the 1971-72 season.

"We have a sense of urgency on this team," Iverson said. "We understand that if a guy goes down that we have soembody else to step in. And the best thing about this team, I think, is the character."

Tyrone Hill added 18 points and 11 rebounds and Ratliff finished with 12 and nine for the Sixers, who have won four in a row overall and also own the NBA's best record at 34-10. They improved to 19-0 against teams with losing records.

"Tonight we didn't have Kukoc, Geiger or Snow and we still won. That speaks volumes," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said.

Reggie Miller had 18 points, seven assists and five rebounds for Indiana, which has lost two in a row following a four-game winning streak.

"It was two good defensive teams going at it. The difference is, they shot 31 free throws, we shot 10," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said. "We took the ball to the basket, they took the ball to the basket. For whatever reason, we weren't able to get to the line and they were able to get to the line."

Iverson did most of his damage from the line, making 11-of-14 free throws in the final period. His free throw with 4:31 remaining put Philadelphia ahead for good, 71-70.

Aaron McKie, who was 1-of-10 from the field in the first half, sandwiched a pair of jumpers around one by Indiana's Al Harrington, to give the Sixers a three-point cushion.

After Hill split two free throws, Jermaine O'Neal dunked to get Indiana within 76-74 with 2:29 remaining. Iverson's layup was answered by a 20-foot jumper by Harrington, but Philadelphia scored the next five points to take control.

Iverson made four straight free throws and George Lynch one to build an 83-76 lead with 29 seconds left.

Iverson was just 1-of-8 from the field in the first quarter, but the Sixers scored the final seven points of the period to grab a 19-18 lead.

"It's a special feeling because I know that my team is so much different than what they have been in the past," Iverson said. "In the past, if I struggled like this in a game, nine times out of 10 we would lose the game. Just the heart and the character of these guys on this team speaks for itself."

A long jumper by Travis Best capped an 8-0 burst and gave Indiana a 30-24 lead with just under five minutes left in the second quarter. Philadelphia answered with an 11-0 run and took a 37-34 cushion into the locker room despite shooting under 35 percent (16-of-46). Iverson and McKie combined to make 4-of-22 shots in the first half.

"I looked at the box and saw Aaron was 1-of-12, Allen 4-of-19 and we were still in the game," Brown said.

Indiana was unable to take advantage as Jalen Rose shot 1-of-9 and scored two points in the first half. He finished with 14 points on 6-of-20 shooting, three nights after a 3-of-16 effort against Portland.

"He's not shooting the ball well and sometimes that happens," Thomas said. "He's a good enough player that eventually he'll come out of it."

Lynch scored only six points but grabbed 12 rebounds, helping the Sixers to a 48-43 edge on the boards. They shot just 38 percent (30-of-79) but held the Pacers to 42 percent (34-of-81) and outscored them from the line, 23-7.

O'Neal chipped in 12 points and 13 rebounds and Austin Croshere also netted 12 points as Indiana's bench outscored Philadelphia's reserves, 37-12.

"We cannot let this stand in the way of continued improvement," Harrington said. "We must keep in mind that this is a very good basketball team on both sides of the ball. As far as offense is concerned, we had the shots, but they didn't drop."
