Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- In each of the last two springs, the Philadelphia 76ers have been knocked out of the playoffs by the Indiana Pacers. On Sunday, the 76ers put the Pacers on the outside of the postseason race.

Tyrone Hill scored the first five points of a first-quarter spurt that essentially determined the outcome as Philadelphia won for the third time in four games, 104-93 over the Pacers.

Allen Iverson led the way with 37 points for the 76ers, who led by seven points after 12 minutes, 54-42 at the break and by as many as 20 points in the second half as they defeated Indiana for the second time in as many meetings this season.

"It's a big win for us because we simply need to win games and get back to playing good basketball," said 76ers coach Larry Brown. "These are the hardest games to play. Indiana is fighting for a playoff spot."

The Pacers (33-40) are tied with the Boston Celtics for the last spot in the race for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

"We didn't do a good job at the beginning of the game to establish whether we were going to be there the entire game," said Pacers guard Jalen Rose. "We found ways to play in spurts but you can't do that against a team like Philadelphia."

The Sixers improved to 51-22, tying San Antonio for the NBA's best record.

Jalen Rose netted 26 points and Austin Croshere contributed 21 for the Pacers, who were unable to recover from a three-minute stretch of the first quarter during which the 76ers took control with a 9-2 spurt.

After two free throws by Croshere brought Indiana within 15-14 with 3:48 to play in the period, Hill hit a running jumper from seven feet and was fouled by Sam Perkins. The ensuing free throw, coupled with a layup off the break by Hill moments later, pushed Philadelphia's advantage to 20-14.

Croshere again made a pair from the stripe, but Iverson hit from 17 feet and the NBA's leading scorer fed Matt Geiger for a layup that made it 24-16 in the quarter's final minute.

Indiana, which received only 11 points from Reggie Miller -- more than seven below his average -- could not get closer than seven points the rest of the way.

"We control our own destiny," said Miller. "It will be good to get home, but we play some tough teams. It doesn't get any easier for us, but as long as we can play the way we played against Boston and today, we'll be OK."

Trying to remain in the game at the foul line, the Pacers made their first 28 free throws before a miss by Jeff Foster with 5:56 left in the fourth quarter. They were 35-of-40 from the stripe.

Indiana, however, shot just 38 percent (28-of-74) from the field, including 2-of-17 from 3-point range.

"It was a good team effort. Everybody was involved through the whole game," said Hill. "Defensively, we did a pretty good job trying to contain Reggie (Miller) and Jalen (Rose). That's when we're at our best when everybody is touching the ball and helping on defense."

Hill grabbed 13 rebounds for the 76ers, who held a 53-30 advantage on the boards while connecting on 44 percent (36-of-81) of their shots. Iverson had seven of Philadelphia's 24 assists.

"This is the most important time for us to start coming together and play as a team," Brown said. "You're going into the playoffs so what better time to start coming together than now. What makes this team special is that we're a team."
