Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Darrell Armstrong outlasted Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers.

Armstrong scored 13 of his career-high 34 points and held Iverson to one meaningless basket in the second overtime as the Orlando Magic fought off the 76ers, 123-117.

Armstrong had one of the best games of his career. He made 11-of-21 shots and added eight rebounds and 13 assists without a turnover as he ran Orlando's pick-and-roll offense to perfection.

The speedy point guard had some trouble at times with Iverson, who scored 47 points, eclipsing 40 for the ninth time this season, all since December 20. But he needed 35 shots to do it and went scoreless for eight minutes in the extra sessions.

"I felt I made his shots a little tougher to make. I kept my hand up," Armstrong said. "It just wasn't me, it was my teammates. We had guys running at him and step in when he beat me. We're both quick that it's quickness going against each other. The problem is that he known where he is going and I have to try to catch up."

"I thought the key was to keep him in front and challenge his jump shots," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "If Iverson is not making his jump shots, he's going to take it to the basket. Darrell did a nice job of staying in front. Darrell is a gambler, and one of the things I begged him not to do is gamble. If you gamble on Iverson, you're going to lose. Darrell did a nice job of staying solid defensively."

Armstrong made a pair of 3-pointers in the second overtime. The first came with 4:21 remaining and gave Orlando the lead for good at 111-109. The second came with 51 seconds left and the shot clock running down and pushed the advantage to 118-113.

In a seesaw game, the Magic erased a 15-point second-quarter deficit and blew an 11-point fourth-quarter lead before forcing overtime on Michael Doleac's jumper off a feed from Armstrong with 1.2 seconds left in regulation.

"It was a high pick-and-roll play," Doleac said. "Darrell took away from the screen and through the double-team and I was wide open. That's what you want, an open shot, and I was fortunate to knock it down."

"Our team showed so much character being down in regulation and then in the overtime, coming back to take it to another overtime," Armstrong said. "From there we started making some big baskets. We just kept working. We showed our heart and pride. We didn't want to lose this game."

Tracy McGrady scored 25 points and rookie Mike Miller added a season-high 24 for the Magic, who beat the 76ers for the first time in five meetings and have won five of their last seven overall.

Theo Ratliff had 21 points and 13 rebounds and Tyrone Hill added 15 and 10 for the Sixers, who fell to 14-7 at home and 2-3 in overtime. Philadelphia lost to an Atlantic Division foe for just the second time this season.

After Doleac's jumper forced overtime, the Magic sputtered as the Sixers scored the first six points. An inside basket by George Lynch gave Philadelphia a 108-102 lead with 3:40 to go.

"When they went up by six points, I called timeout and said, `So what. That's what they're supposed to do. They're supposed to make a run. Now it's your turn,'" Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "And, they did. I'm just really happy for them."

The 76ers went scoreless for the rest of the period. Doleac had a drive and jumper before Don Reid dunked to tie it with 59 seconds left. Armstrong missed a 3-pointer and Iverson missed a jumper in the final 30 seconds.

"They made some big plays, and we had some guys tired," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "The last thing I wanted was to see a double-overtime game. We had some chances, we made a phenomenal comeback and we had a chance to win it. We got up six and we had a fast break but we got nothing out of it. We could have locked the game up then."

Miller made four of his five 3-pointers and scored 16 points in the third quarter, when Orlando scored 40 points and turned a seven-point halftime deficit into an 85-74 lead.

The Magic still led 92-84 after two free throws by Miller with 7:10 left. The Sixers stormed back and tied it, 94-94, with 2:37 remaining on a 3-pointer by ailing Aaron McKie, his only basket of the game.

A drive and two free throws by Iverson gave Philadelphia a 98-95 lead with 1:27 to play. Armstrong tied it with a 3-pointer and gave Orlando a 100-99 lead with two free throws with 41 seconds left. Iverson responded by beating Armstrong for a three-point play with 9.6 seconds remaining but Doleac foiled Iverson's bid for the first game-winning shot of his career.

Iverson was 15-of-35 from the field and 15-of-19 from the line. The Sixers fell to 6-3 this season and 12-13 all-time when he scores 40 or more.

"We just couldn't get it done," Iverson said. "As hard as we tried and as much energy we exerted, we just couldn't get it done. I'm confused about this one. We just have to move on and keep your sprit up. These losses hurt because plenty of times, we had 'em."

Doleac had 14 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out in the second overtime. He also committed a flagrant roul on Iverson early in the first overtime.

Orlando shot 48.5 percent (47-of-97), including 10-of-25 from behind the arc. Philadelphia shot 46 percent (41-of-89) and made 31-of-43 free throws.

The Sixers opened a 47-32 lead with 4:15 to play in the second period but the Magic closed the quarter with a 13-5 spurt to cut the deficit to 52-45. Iverson had 22 points at halftime.

"I let Allen get off to good start," Armstrong said. "He had like 15 after the first quarter and 22 at the half. The second half, I felt I played him a little tougher."
