Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers were in another offensive funk until Aaron McKie snapped them out it.

McKie came off the bench to spark a huge second quarter and Eric Snow scored 24 points as the 76ers cruised to a 99-79 victory over the woeful Chicago Bulls.

With NBA leading scorer Allen Iverson sidelined with a broken hand, points are at a premium for the 76ers. They were held to 80 in a home loss to New Jersey and seemed headed for another plodding performance as they trailed, 17-16, after one quarter.

McKie, whose return from a high ankle sprain coincided with Iverson's absence three games ago, scored four points at the end of the first period and really came alive in the second quarter, when Philadelphia outscored Chicago, 37-11.

"I just try to plug away at it," McKie said. "It's going to be some good nights and some bad nights. I've been playing this game long enough to know."

"Aaron McKie got into the passing lanes, deflecting balls," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "Then we were able to score offensively, which got our defense set."

The 2001 Sixth Man Award winner scored 11 of his 12 points in the first half, when the Sixers opened a 53-28 lead.

Snow made 10-of-18 shots as he fell one point shy of a career high, matched Friday in Boston. He has been averaging nearly 20 shots per game since Iverson went down.

"We are going to get looks," Snow said. "We're going to get opportunities with Allen Iverson out. We just try to spread the wealth."

Speedy Claxton scored 17 points and Matt Harpring added 15 for Philadelphia (38-33), which improved to just 2-9 this season without Iverson. The 76ers also overcame the absence of forward Derrick Coleman, who sat out with a hyperextended left knee.

Philadelphia has won six straight road games, while Chicago (17-55) has dropped seven straight home games.

Jalen Rose scored 16 points and Marcus Fizer added 15 and a career-high 17 rebounds for the Bulls, who shot just 36 percent (28-of-77) and allowed the Sixers to shoot 49 percent (38-of-78).

"I told them I haven't been disappointed all year in our effort defensively," Bulls coach Bill Cartwright said. "This was a tough game to coach and, I'm sure, a tough game to watch."

McKie, Claxton and Corie Blount had three-point plays in an 11-0 run that opened the second quarter and gave Philadelphia a 27-17 lead. A basket by Rose at the 6:52 mark was the last of the quarter for Chicago.

"We had everyone playing well and those guys missed shots," McKie said. "That definitely helps."

While the Bulls missed their final 10 shots, the Sixers went on a 12-0 spurt. McKie scored four points and Snow's jumper made it 50-26 with 1:51 remaining. When Fizer finally made a free throw to end the run, Rose did a little skip step of relief.

"In the second quarter, they made a couple substitutions and the bottom fell out,"

Rose said.

In the second quarter, Chicago had six turnovers and nine fouls. Philadelphia led 53-28 at halftime and opened its largest lead at 57-28 on Claxton's basket in the first minute of the third quarter. Chicago got no closer than 17 points thereafter.

Dikembe Mutombo had 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Sixers, who held a 46-40 edge on the glass.

"We bounced back," Brown said. "Coming here on the bus, it was really great we had a game tonight, so quickly, because we were all feeling so bad. I was really proud of them."
