Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- It was the end of the road for the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 76ers' franchise-record 13-game road winning streak came to an end with a 96-89 loss to the Toronto Raptors, who overcame an injury to Vince Carter and got 22 points from rookie Morris Peterson.

Philadelphia had not lost on the road since December 5 against the Los Angeles Lakers. It eclipsed the previous club mark of 11 and was within three of the NBA record set by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.

"You aren't going to win every game," Sixers All-Star guard Allen Iverson said. "We just didn't want it to end tonight."

The Sixers appeared to get a break when Carter sat down with a strained left knee just four minutes into the game. But they blew a 13-point first-half lead and seemed to tire down the stretch, missing key free throws and jumpers.

"I didn't use my bench very good," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "I didn't think my guys were tired. We missed some free throws but I don't think that was the reason."

Peterson matched his season high as he picked up the slack for Carter, who went out with the same injury that forced him to miss five games earlier this season.

"I thought we displayed great character tonight, especially with Vince going down," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "After the half, we tightened up the defense and got much better ball movement."

Reserves Dell Curry and Alvin Williams also stepped up. Curry scored a season-high 17 points and Williams added 16 as Toronto became the first team to beat Philadelphia twice this season.

I can't say enough about Alvin and Mo. They played like I knew they would," Wilkens said. "Dell is playing more and more and we're running situations for him."

"When Vince goes down, I'm next in line," Curry said. "I was prepared because his knee has been bothering him. I'm getting more in rhythm with the more minutes I get. It was a big win to beat the best team. We could have folded up without Vince but we stepped it up."

Allen Iverson scored 38 points on 14-of-32 shooting for the Sixers, who fell to 20-5 on the road. Philadelphia's reserves played 26 minutes and scored just two points.

The Raptors held the Sixers without a basket for the final four minutes of the third quarter, when they took the lead for good. Toronto's 73-68 lead entering the final period grew to 79-72 on two free throws by Charles Oakley with 9:51 left.

Curry's 3-pointer kept the advantage at 87-80 with 4:37 to go before Philadelphia made a push. Iverson was fouled but split the pair. He drove for a layup and was fouled again but missed the free throw.

Tyrone Hill, who had 16 points and 14 rebounds, drew a foul and missed both from the line. Just 37 seconds later, he returned to the stripe and made two, cutting the deficit to 87-85 with 2:53 remaining.

Peterson scored off a post move and made 1-of-2 free throws on the next possession. Iverson answered with two foul shots to make it 90-87 with 1:27 left and Antonio Davis and Hill traded baskets, setting up the final minute.

Peterson threw away a pass and Iverson came into the frontcourt with just under 30 seconds to go. He passed to the 6-10 Hill, who inexplicably launched his first 3-point attempt this season from the top of the circle. It barely grazed the rim and Mark Jackson made two foul shots to seal it at 94-89 with 16 seconds to go.

"I got double-teamed, the clock was running down and I should have passed it out or called timeout but I had just hit one (jumper) in the corner," Hill said.

Jackson scored 15 points, Davis added 11 and nine rebounds and Oakley grabbed 12 boards for the Raptors, who shot 45 percent (38-of-84) and received 40 points from their bench.

"I thought our bench did a great job for us," Peterson said. "My confidence level continues to rise for each game. Tonight, I was trying to be aggressive, take shots and get rebounds."

Aaron McKie had 13 points and 10 assists and Theo Ratliff and George Lynch scored 10 points each for the Sixers, who shot 42 percent (36-of-85) and held a 47-43 edge on the glass. Lynch grabbed 12 rebounds and Ratliff, named to his first All-Star team earlier in the day, blocked five shots.

Carter sat down for good with 8:28 left in the first quarter. He will not travel to Atlanta and stay in Toronto for diagnostic testing. Results will be available Thursday.

"I was feeling uncomfortable so I stopped playing," Carter said. "When I try to drive, I get a sharp pain. We're going to check it out and try to find out the problem."

Hill's layup gave the Sixers a 31-18 lead before Peterson had three baskets in a 10-2 surge that closed the period and pulled the Raptors within 33-28.

Iverson had 21 points at halftime as Philadelphia held a 55-54 edge.
