Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- With a big hand from Brian Skinner, Allen Iverson won his stretch duel with Tim Duncan. Iverson scored 13 of his 37 points after returning from a fourth-quarter ankle injury and Skinner blocked a potential tying drive by Duncan with 25 seconds left, lifting the Philadelphia 76ers to a 99-94 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The last two NBA Most Valuable Players staged a thrilling back-and-forth battle over the last six minutes. Four times, Philadelphia snapped a tie, only to have San Antonio even things once again. With the score tied at 93, Iverson dribbled into the lane, twisted between defenders and launched a rainbow shot that banked in with 43 seconds remaining. "I knew the shot clock was running down and my whole thing was to get a shot up and try to put it on the glass and on the rim," Iverson said. "If I did miss, we would have a chance at an offensive rebound. Once I let it go, I knew it was too long, but I let it go soft and I knew I had a chance." The Spurs went to Duncan, who scored eight of his 29 points in the last six minutes. He drove left on Skinner, a reserve forward who was stepping for foul-plagued Keith Van Horn. Skinner blocked Duncan's shot, and the Sixers grabbed the loose ball. "I didn't want him to feel comfortable facing up," Skinner said. "So I pushed up on him a little bit more. I felt comfortable with him driving and the timing was right on the block and I got it." "It was just a great recovery by him," Duncan said. "I thought I was by him. I got a pass almost at the 3-point line and he was up under me. I pulled and went through. I thought I got a step on him and he just recovered." Iverson was fouled and made both free throws for a 97-93 lead with 21 seconds to go. Aaron McKie added a breakaway layup after Stephen Jackson missed a desperation 3-pointer. Iverson came in shoting just 38 percent from the field but made 12-of-25 shots, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range. He also made 10-of-11 free throws and handed out six assists. "We just couldn't stop him," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He was the difference. He made some really difficult shots and he got them over the hump." Duncan was not as sharp but nevertheless had a solid game. He made 10-of-22 shots and 9-of-16 free throws, adding nine rebounds, five assists and five blocks. Skinner gave the 76ers a huge lift with 13 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks off the bench. He has has double figures in rebounds in six of nine games this season. Despite blowing a 17-point second-quarter lead, Philadelphia (5-3) improved to 5-0 at home. San Antonio has lost consecutive regular-season games for the first time since dropping three in a row from March 27-31 of last season. Iverson twisted his left ankle as he landed funny after launching an errant jumper and headed to the locker room with 8:08 to go. Tony Parker's jumper pulled San Antonio into a 78-78 tie 15 seconds later, and his 3-pointer gave the Spurs an 81-80 lead with 6:44 left. "I was trying to get back in the game," Iverson said. "I came down on my ankle the wrong way. It kind of scared me so I went and got it retaped. Once I got back, I tried to get back into the rhythm of the game." "It might have been a blessing," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "I firmly believe that when he can get rest late in games, he is going to be much more effective down the stretch." Iverson returned with 6:05 to play, right before Duncan threw in a hook for an 83-82 edge. Iverson responded with a drive and 3-pointer, giving the Sixers an 87-83 lead with 5:10 remaining. Duncan made a hook and two free throws to tie it; Iverson hit two for an 89-87 lead with 3:56 to play. Jackson made a layup; Iverson hit a step-back jumper to make it 91-89 at the 2:45 mark. Duncan sank a lane jumper to tie it again, and McKie and David Robinson traded baskets, setting up the final minute. Van Horn, drafted second overall behind Duncan in 1997, collected 21 points and nine rebounds. McKie added 12 and nine for the Sixers, who held a 48-42 edge on the glass and committed just nine turnovers. Jackson had 15 points and nine boards and Parker scored 12 points for the Spurs, who hurt themselves by missing 11 3-pointers and 13 free throws. "Between missing free throws, turnovers and them getting layups on the other end, we killed ourselves in the first half," Duncan said. The Sixers erased an early seven-point deficit to bolt to a 31-25 lead after one quarter. In the second period, the Spurs shot 25 percent (5-of-20) and Iverson scored 11 points, including a 3-pointer that provided a 55-38 lead with 1:18 to go. Philadelphia still held a 64-49 lead on a 3-pointer by Van Horn with 8:05 left. But the Sixers went scoreless for six-plus minutes, and the Spurs pulled within a bucket before settling for a 72-66 deficit entering the final period. "Putting ourselves in that predicament is a bad thing because we had a big lead on them and we were supposed to be able to send them home early, but we just couldn't," Iverson said. The Spurs have won 16 of the last 20 meetings with the Sixers but have lost their last three visits here.
