Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers are far from perfect. But they remain perfect at home. Iverson scored 36 points and the 76ers wasted a 17-point lead before regrouping for their fifth straight win, an 83-74 victory over the Miami Heat. Philadelphia improved to 9-0 at the First Union Center, but not without a scare from Miami, which fell into last place in the Atlantic Division. The 76ers appeared to be cruising to another win, opening a 56-39 lead on a steal and layup by Iverson with 6:40 left in the third quarter. But the Heat closed to 62-56 entering the final period, then rallied for a 68-68 tie with 7:20 to go. "They started to execute well and we started to play like a bunch of individuals, which has happened before to us," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. Iverson responded with a 3-pointer late in the shot clock and a fallaway jumper from the left wing, giving Philadelphia a 73-68 cushion with 6:12 left. "The time was running out and Aaron (McKie) didn't have anyone to pass the ball to and I just came to the ball, grabbed it and let it go," said Iverson, who has scored at least 30 points in five of the last six games. "I don't even remember how I scored the other one. It might have been a step-back or something." Iverson did not score again until the closing seconds, but the Sixers held on as the Heat's offense sputtered down the stretch, going scoreless over the final 2:20 with a pair of turnovers in the last minute. A jumper by Keith Van Horn gave Philadelphia a 79-74 lead with 2:06 left. On consecutive possessions in the final minute, guard Anthony Carter was whistled for carrying and center Malik Allen committed an offensive foul. Iverson made four free throws for the final margin. "It's definitely a good feeling to know that once you get up and a team makes a run at you, you can still get it done," Iverson said. "That's what this league is all about. When you think a team is dead, they make a run." Eric Snow scored 13 points and Van Horn added 12 for the Sixers, whose overall winning streak is their longest since a seven-game run last November. "You just have to stay confident and realize that teams are going to make runs," Snow said. Brian Grant had 17 points and 18 rebounds for the Heat, who were coming off a surprising win over the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers. "This is what happens after you have what I call the NBA win," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "When you beat the world champions the night before at home, then you go on the road against a rested defensive team, usually this is what happens. You need two days to get that (win) out of your psyche." The teams were tied, 18-18, after one quarter, but the Sixers went to a trap in the second quarter and took advantage of some inexperience by the Heat. Van Horn scored six points in a 14-2 surge as Philadelphia forced three turnovers and opened a 41-27 lead with 3:05 to go in the first half. "I think the depth and versatility that we have has made us able to pick up our defensive pressure, trap and do some different things out on the court," Snow said. "A year ago, without the depth and versatility, we couldn't do those things." "They caught us," Riley said. "We just didn't handle it well and we probably didn't have the right players on the floor, either, from that standpoint. We had three guys on the floor who weren't ready to handle that kind of pressure." The Sixers shot less than 39 percent (32-of-83) from the field but held the Heat to 37.5 percent (30-of-80) and forced 18 turnovers, converting them into 23 points. Eddie Jones scored 16 points and Eddie House added 11 for Miami, which held a 48-41 edge on the boards.
