Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson scored 47 points, but David Wesley stole the show with his second straight game-winning 3-pointer.

Wesley's 25-footer from the left side with 5.9 seconds left lifted the Charlotte Hornets to an 86-85 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

The loss snapped a six-game winning streak for the Sixers, who squandered a five-point lead in the final minute.

Jamal Mashburn's 3-pointer from the left side pulled the Hornets within 85-83 with 43 seconds remaining. After Iverson missed a jumper from the top of the key, the Hornets called a timeout with 19 seconds left.

Baron Davis took the inbounds pass at midcourt and dribbled to the top of the key as Wesley ran across the baseline to the left side, where Elden Campbell screened off defender Aaron McKie. With a wide-open look at the basket, Wesley drilled the jumper.

"We were running a triple for David. Mashburn was the second option coming off the screen," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "There was a mix-up and David came out wide open. He made a great shot."

"There's no way we're supposed to give up a 3 in that situation," Iverson said. "You have to do what you have to do to guard the perimeter."

Wesley also hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 17 seconds left in Charlotte's 93-91 victory over Golden State on Thursday.

"I always want it (with the game on the line)," Wesley said. "It's just a question of will the coach call it for you. One thing about a big shot is you have less time to think about it."

On the ensuing inbounds play, Iverson attempted to drive to the basket, but Davis stepped in front of him and stole the ball to seal the win.

"On that last play, Baron just ran through and got the ball," Iverson said. "It's a tough call to make either way."

"He (Iverson) got a good run at the basket, but Baron is so quick we were able to hold him off," Wesley said.

Iverson hit 17-of-33 shots and all 10 of his free throws and reached the 40-point mark for the second straight night, 14th time this season and 30th time in his career. He had 43 points in Friday's win at Detroit.

His 47 points were the most scored against Charlotte this season, eclipsing a 44-point effort by Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers on February 2.

"Nobody besides Iverson scored in double figures for Philly," Silas said. "You've got to believe that one man can't beat you. But I'll give him credit, he keeps coming at you. I can't say enough about him. He's a great player."

Eddie Robinson led the Hornets with 15 points off the bench. Davis had 14 and 10 assists and Wesley finished with 13 points.

In his second game as a Sixer, Dikembe Mutombo had nine points, nine rebounds and two blocked shots. He had 17 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks in Friday's win at Detroit.

Afterwards, Sixers coach Larry Brown bemoaned his team's defense down the stretch.

"We gave up two 3's the last two plays," Brown said. "But we have to give them a lot of credit. They knocked down two big shots."

Wesley and Robinson attempted to guard Iverson, who had 24 of his team's 42 points at the half. He was held to six points in the third quarter before erupting for 17 in the final period.

"He's so quick," Robinson said of Iverson. "I tried to keep him in front of me. He's so tricky with the ball."

Iverson's third 3-pointer of the game gave Philadelphia a 77-76 lead with 5:19 left. A hook shot by Tyrone Hill increased the advantage to 79-76 with 4:28 remaining.

After a 20-foot jumper by Mashburn, who finished with 12, pulled the Hornets within 81-80, Mutombo converted a pair of free throws with 2:55 left. A jumper by Iverson increased the lead to 85-80 with 2:03 remaining, but the Sixers failed to score the rest of the way.

"They made the key plays down the stretch and we didn't," Sixers forward George Lynch said. "Charlotte gets up for us every time and even more so because we're favorites in the East. Tonight's a good measuring stick for them."

The Sixers eliminated the Hornets in the first round of the playoffs last year and the teams split four meetings this season.

Iverson scored eight points as the Sixers raced to a 17-6 lead in the first 6:11. But the Hornets closed the quarter with a 13-4 run as Davis and Robinson combined for nine points.

Charlotte scored six of the first seven points of the second quarter and took a 25-22 lead on a 10-foot jumper by Campbell.

A 14-foot jumper by Iverson with 33 seconds left in the quarter gave Philadelphia a 42-41 halftime advantage.

The Sixers increased the lead to 48-43 lead early in the third, but a 19-4 run opened a 62-52 lead for the Hornets. While Philadelphia had just two field goals in seven minutes, Davis and Mashburn combined for 12 points and rookie Jamaal Magloire scored two baskets.

Philadelphia pulled within 64-58 at the end of the quarter after a pair of baskets by McKie and a layup by Iverson.

A 3-pointer by Lynch tied the game at 68-68 with 8:25 left in the fourth quarter.
