Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers kept giving chances to the Los Angeles Lakers, who let them slip through their fingers. The Lakers wasted numerous opportunities, including one by Rick Fox in the final seconds of overtime, as they continued their season-long stumble with a 107-104 setback to the 76ers. "It's just a jacked-up year," Lakers forward Robert Horry said. Iverson had 32 points and nine steals, establishing a league season high and tying the team record. However, he missed all nine of his shots in the fourth quarter and three free throws in the final 15 seconds of overtime. The Lakers could not capitalize, wasting 44 points by Kobe Bryant and dropping their third straight game. The three-time defending champions are 7-9 since the return of superstar center Shaquille O'Neal and 10-18 overall, in last place in the Pacific Division. "We had opportunities tonight but couldn't cash in," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. The 76ers held a 104-99 lead before Bryant drilled a 3-pointer with 18 seconds to go. Iverson was fouled but split the free throws, leaving the Lakers within 105-102. Denied a 3-pointer, Bryant drove for a dunk that made it 105-104 with 8.4 seconds left. Iverson again was fouled and this time missed both, leaving Los Angeles with a chance to take the lead. After a timeout, the Lakers inbounded to Horry, and both Iverson and Derrick Coleman went to him, leaving Fox open and cutting to the basket. Horry's pass behind Fox but it should have been handled. Instead, it went through his hands and out of bounds. "It was a difficult pass," Fox said. "As I came off, (Aaron) McKie did a good job of getting a bump in. As I turned, Robert got the pass. I turned and tried to catch it quickly. It was just hard to catch." "It was a great play. We couldn't have stopped it," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. Horry turned away from the basket and screamed in disgust. "It wasn't Rick's fault," Jackson said. "We knew that they would jump to Kobe. Robert just had to pass the ball on an agle like that because of the pressure that he was receiving." "It was the only angle I had to throw it," Horry said. "Hopefully, he could have batted it down and got the layup." Coleman was fouled and made both free throws with 2.1 seconds remaining. Iverson stole the desperation inbounds pass, securing Philadelphia's third straight victory. "Even with choking on the free throws and everything, it felt good knowing my teammates took up the slack for me," said Iverson, who made just 11-of-33 shots and 7-of-13 free throws. "When I couldn't get it done, someone else could. It was a good feeling tonight to get that win. Not too many times when you choke do you get the W. It was just a good feeling." The 6-10 Coleman had 18 points and eight rebounds and did a credible job on O'Neal. The 7-2 superstar had 26 points and 14 rebounds, but missed 11 free throws - including his last six - and committed seven turnovers before fouling out early in overtime. "I thought Derrick was great," Brown said. "You can't guard the guy." Keith Van Horn had 20 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out for the Sixers, who improved to 13-2 at home. McKie scored 14 points, Kenny Thomas added 11 in his Philadelphia debut and Eric Snow handed out 12 assists. Derek Fisher scored 13 points and Horry pulled down 12 rebounds for the Lakers, who fell to 2-13 on the road. Last season, they were 27-14 away from home. Iverson scored 15 points in the third quarter, and the Sixers took an 80-73 lead into the fourth period. But he did not score while Bryant put on a show, taking charge of the offense with O'Neal off the floor. After O'Neal returned, his basket gave the Lakers a 92-91 lead with 3:29 remaining. But Coleman made three free throws around two misses from the line by O'Neal, giving the Sixers a 94-92 edge with 2:10 left. Fox's layup tied it with 59 seconds to play, and O'Neal was fouled on the next trip. Again, he missed both free throws, and Iverson and Bryant missed shots before the horn. "It felt like a big playoff game," Iverson said. "I'm talking about a playoff game where the series was tied." In overtime, Iverson had a jumper, 3-pointer and free throw to give Philadelphia a 100-99 lead with 1:44 remaining. Snow's driving layup and Coleman's two free throws pushed the lead to five points with 28 seconds to go before Bryant's final charge. "People can be down on them all they want, but the way they played tonight, trust me, no one wants to play them in the playoffs," Snow said. The Sixers held a 52-50 rebounding edge. Iverson's steals accounted for nearly half of LA's 20 turnovers.
