Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Stephon Marbury outmuscled Allen Iverson and showed that the Philadelphia 76ers are no longer bullies in their own backyard. Marbury overpowered Iverson for 28 points and 10 assists as the Phoenix Suns handed the 76ers their season-high fourth straight loss, 99-91. "It's difficult when you have to play against a guy like that to concentrate on both ends of the court," Marbury said. "The best way to attack him is to attack on the offensive end." Taken three picks apart in the 1996 draft, Marbury always has been just a notch below Iverson, who has gotten the better of their matchups over the past six-plus years. Iverson also has enjoyed more individual and team success, while Marbury has been traded twice and never has won a playoff series. However, Marbury had the upper hand in this one. Iverson began by playing off him, and Marbury made four 3-pointers in the first half. When Iverson pressed up, Marbury used his bigger frame to push his way past his smaller foe and get inside for baskets for himself or teammates. "They're screening on the ball with Marbury all night with their big men," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "Our big men, quite honestly, were at a tremendous disadvantage in helping Allen." Marbury made 12-of-21 shots, including 4-of-6 from the arc. Meanwhile, he helped harass Iverson into 7-of-24 shooting, limiting the three-time scoring champion to 22 points, including just three free throws in the final period. "This is my seventh year and for me to still be getting in personal battles, it's ludicrous," Iverson said. "That's not what it's all about. I've been through that as a rookie. I've grown out of that." "It was not just one individual guarding Allen," Marbury said. "Allen is a great player and a great scorer." During the losing streak, Iverson has made just 30-of-98 shots. After winning their first 10 games at the First Union Center, the 76ers have stumbled twice in a row at home, losing to Seattle and Phoenix. "I'm not playing the way I'm capable of playing" Iverson said. "My decision-making is not there. I think I'm forcing the issue a lot. I'm just making mistakes a guy who has been playing seven years shouldn't be making. It's inexcusable, but that's the way it goes sometimes. You want to play great every night. I'm so hard on myself when it comes down to it because I am the leader. As I go we go, and sometimes you have to accept the responsibility and point a finger at yourself. "Right now, I am just stinking up the gym. I don't think I should even be getting paid for the way I've been playing the last couple games. It won't last, I promise you that." Shawn Marion had 25 points and 15 rebounds for the Suns, who led the entire second half and improved to 2-2 on their five-game road trip. Todd MacCulloch scored 16 points and Greg Buckner added 14 for the Sixers, who played without swingman Aaron McKie (flu) and forward Monty Williams (bruised knee). Iverson had seven assists, including one that set up Art Long for a layup to pull Philadelphia within 80-76 with 10 minutes to go. Marbury responded with an 18-footer and a side jumper before Joe Johnson's jumper rebuilt the lead to 10 points with 7:28 left. A banker by Buckner and a free throw by Iverson made it 88-83 with 4:24 to play, but Marbury threw in a runner. "When you are on the road and play against good teams, you have to come back and you have to hold leads," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "It builds your mental toughness." Buckner made a pair of jumpers around a basket by Bo Outlaw, making it 92-87 with 3:07 remaining. After a timeout, Marion drilled a 3-pointer for an eight-point bulge with 2:43 left, and the Sixers got no closer than six points thereafter. "Every time we cut it, they were able to hit a big bucket or turn the ball over or (make us) miss a shot," Sixers guard Eric Snow said. "We couldn't get over that five-point hump to make their shots tougher." Penny Hardaway scored 15 points and Joe Johnson added 12 for the Suns, who shot 48 percent (39-of-81), including 9-of-16 from the arc. Eric Snow had 13 points and eight assists and Keith Van Horn swept 10 boards for the Sixers, who shot 47 percent (37-of-78) but just 2-of-14 from the arc. Iverson made just 1-of-8 3-pointers. Philadelphia also hurt itself with turnovers, committing 17 that led to 32 points for Phoenix. "They had 32 points off turnovers," Brown said. "That's the game, regardless of them going 9-of-16 on threes." There were 11 ties in the first half, the last at 47-47 with 2:15 left on a short jumper by Iverson, who scored 14 points in the second quarter. But Marbury made a jumper and 3-pointer before Marion made two free throws to close the half. A three-point play by rookie Amare Stoudemire opened the third quarter and gave Phoenix a 57-47 lead. Philadelphia got within four points but trailed, 78-69, entering the final period.
