Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- After being thrown out of practice, Allen Iverson took out his frustration on the San Antonio Spurs.

Iverson scored 37 points and the Philadelphia 76ers bounced back from a tumultuous loss with a convincing 101-84 victory over the Spurs, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

The 76ers have looked nothing like last year's squad, which went to the NBA Finals. After Wednesday's 102-91 home loss to Orlando, Iverson said, "We don't have any kind of chemistry on offense at all. I don't know what the plan is right now, night in and night out."

That seemed to be an indictment of coach Larry Brown, who did accept some responsibility for the loss. But Brown would not accept whatever Iverson did at Friday's shootaround, throwing him out of the session.

"If I say things that may have offended somebody, I'm sorry," Iverson said. "But I'm trying to win basketball games. I'm not gonna say everything sweet. But I don't mean any harm. I love my teammates. I don't want to say anything to hurt them or make them think that I'm not gonna be in the foxhole with them every night, because I am.

"But when I feel like saying something, I say it, just like the coach says about me. (Like) after the game in Toronto (on November 25), about them having an unselfish superstar that makes his teammates better. I know that's directed at me. But I mean, that's the way he (Brown) felt that night.

I don't have nothing against Larry Brown. Nothing against my teammates, man. I'm trying to get back to where I was last year. And if everything don't come out the right way, I'm sorry. I'm not trying to hurt anybody or anything like that."

Brown did not talk about what happened at the shootaround.

"Allen had a phenomenal game," Brown said. "Maybe it was the two-hour-and-40-minute practice (Thursday), I don't know. ... think we tried to make people aware of what our responsibilities were and how we would do certain things. So we did it and hopefully we can build on that. It was obvious in every area of the game."

Despite their disagreement -- one of dozens between Iverson and Brown over the last five seasons -- the Sixers played one of their better games. They eclipsed 100 points for just the fifth time this season while holding the Spurs to less than 39 percent shooting and 16 points below their average.

"It's definitely satisfying," Sixers forward Derrick Coleman said. "Anytime you can get a win, no matter how you get it, it is satisfying. The main thing with us, we have to try and keep it going."

Coleman scored 17 points and Speedy Claxton added 11 for the Sixers, who shot 49 percent (37-of-76) and forced 20 turnovers, converting them into 25 points. Iverson and Eric Snow each had four of Philadelphia's 14 steals.

Tim Duncan had 22 points and 15 rebounds for San Antonio. But the All-Star forward did not get much help. David Robinson scored just eight points and Steve Smith and Terry Porter each were limited to six.

"The last 10 games or so we have really been up and down," said Duncan. "We have fought off some tough ones and lost some tough ones. We have not been playing our best basketball."

The loss dropped San Antonio one-half game behind Minnesota into second place in the Midwest Division.

Iverson scored all 10 of his first-quarter points in a 17-3 run that gave the Sixers the lead for good. His steal and dunk capped the burst at 19-9 with 2:36 remaining.

"They came out tough," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I thought we were physically soft to start the game. It turned into mental softness. Those are the games that really anger me. We have a tendency to do that now and then. When we do we get our butts kicked.

"It was a disappointing night. I don't care about missed shots or anything else, but playing soft is inexcusable and we did it."

A dunk and two free throws by Duncan cut the deficit to 23-20 before Philadelphia rattled of 10 of the next 12 points. A steal and layup by Eric Snow made it 33-22 with 7:19 in the second period.

"We came out with intensity right from the start," Coleman said. "We played great help defense. When we had the opportunity to fast break, that is what we did."

The Sixers led 49-39 at halftime and the Spurs got no closer than seven points in the second half. The last time was at 70-63 on a short jumper by Malik Rose in the final minute of the third period.

But Claxton drove for a layup to close the quarter and Iverson put it away in the final period. He opened the quarter with a 20-footer and had a pair of jumpers in a 6-0 spurt that gave Philadelphia an 83-67 lead with 9:06 remaining.

Iverson had two free throws and a layup in a 10-2 run that gave the Sixers their largest lead at 96-76 with 2:27 to go. He left to a nice ovation from the sellout crowd of 20,488 at the First Union Center, which was unaware of his bout with Brown earlier in the day.

Dikembe Mutombo grabbed 11 rebounds for Philadelphia, which had just 10 turnovers.

Malik Rose scored 13 points off the bench and Antonio Daniels added 10 for San Antonio, which had taken 16 of the last 18 meetings between the clubs.
