Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Missing Allen Iverson, Tyrone Hill and Aaron McKie, the Philadelphia 76ers got some help from Jerry Stackhouse.

Stackhouse's third-quarter ejection preceded a pivotal surge by the 76ers, who built a 15-point lead and held on for a 90-84 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Dikembe Mutombo had 21 points and 16 rebounds and Eric Snow made a key steal and jumper down the stretch for Philadelphia, which was without three of its top six players but improved to 26-11 on the road.

"This win was really big for us," Mutombo said. "With Allen out, Tyrone, we went in with eight guys and tried to fight after that big loss yesterday (in Toronto). I'm glad that we were able to pull it out. The guys came in and played as hard as they can."

The 76ers' magic number for clinching their first Atlantic Division title in 11 years is one. They host lowly Cleveland on Friday.

Stackhouse was coming off an NBA season-high 57 points against Chicago on Tuesday. The former Sixer came in second in the NBA in scoring to Iverson, who sat out with a bruised tailbone.

However, Stackhouse never could get untracked. He scored just 14 points, making 5-of-19 shots and four turnovers before getting tossed for his second technical foul with 4:03 left in the third quarter, arguing a foul call.

"What I've got to say would cost way too much," said Stackhouse, who also was ejected March 27 against the Los Angeles Clippers.

"I'm shocked that you would throw out a major All-Star for saying it was a horrible call," Pistons coach George Irvine said. "He didn't swear, he didn't make any comments about the guy's family. All he said was it was a horrible call. Maybe you can give a guy a technical like that, but you don't throw him out."

Leading 55-50, Philadelphia widened the advantage to 69-54 as Snow scored the first six points of a 14-4 spurt.

"We got out of a rhythm when Jerry got thrown out," Pistons center Mikki Moore said. "I'm not exactly sure what happened. I didn't hear him cuss. I don't think he cussed."

The Pistons rallied behind Dana Barros, who scored 14 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter. His drive, steal and three-point play cut the deficit to 81-76 and a 3-pointer by Chucky Atkins made it 83-81 with 3:18 left.

Philadelphia missed three shots on the next possession before Snow picked Barros clean in transition. At the other end, he made a tough 15-footer for an 85-81 lead with 1:44 to go.

Ben Wallace made a hook and Snow missed a jumper. But Atkins missed a driving layup and Kevin Ollie made a 20-footer from the right wing to give the Sixers an 87-83 lead with 32 seconds remaining. Snow added two free throws to seal it.

"Eric made an unbelievable steal. Kevin made a big shot," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "That's the way we won games early in the year. ... Different guys came up and made big plays and that's a big win for us, especially as shorthanded as we were."

George Lynch scored 18 points and Matt Geiger added 13 despite making just 3-of-19 shots for the Sixers, who overcame 37 percent (34-of-93) shooting and a 45-43 rebounding deficit.

"It's obvious that we've been struggling a lot lately," Brown said. "With injuries, we won at the beginning of the year. We had to find ways to do it. I thought Dikembe was huge the whole game. Matt was terrific, even though he didn't make a lot of shots. But his effort was great. Eric Snow was really terrific down the stretch."

Philadelphia swept Detroit for the first time since 1982-83, the season of its last championship.

Mutombo's 12th double-double in 20 games since joining the team helped the Sixers improved to 4-4 without Iverson, who averages more than 31 points per game. Hill has a back injury and McKie has a knee sprain.

"Sometimes it's a blessing in disguise when you're shorthanded and you have to pull together," Lynch said. "We knew we were at a disadvantage. Hopefully, for the guys who were watching and the guys who were playing, we learned something. If we can play that way with our entire team together, we will be a hard team to beat."

"We thought if we made it a half-court game, we could defend and we felt we'd have a better chance of winning," Snow said. "And that's what we did."

Joe Smith scored 12 points and Wallace grabbed 15 rebounds for the Pistons, who shot 43 percent (33-of-76) but committed 19 turnovers, leading to 29 points for the Sixers. Detroit had a season-high three-game winning streak snapped.

"We didn't execute well in the first three quarters, but we were able to hang around," Irvine said. "I'm proud of the way we competed without Jerry. We just didn't get there."
