Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson undoubtedly wishes the Philadelphia 76ers would play more than two games a season at Gund Arena. Iverson tied a season high with 41 points in yet another excellent performance here as the 76ers cruised past the Cleveland Cavaliers for their fifth straight win, 119-99, in the opener of a home-and-home series. Keith Van Horn chipped in 22 points and Eric Snow had 20 for Philadelphia, which has taken seven of eight on the road while extending its winning streak against Cleveland to 15 games. Iverson was named Rookie Game MVP and posted a 50-point game at Gund Arena in 1997, adding 54- and 40-point performances here four years later. "I don't really think about it," Iverson said of his success here. "I mean, I know I have a lot of fun here, people come out and support me. It's rare to have people support you the way they do here in Cleveland, especially if I'm on the away team. It's fun. I see a lot of kids come out and I see a lot of jerseys." This time, Iverson scored 14 points and Van Horn 13 in the first quarter as the Sixers opened a commanding 37-17 advantage. "I think we got out of the gates early really well," Van Horn said. "Our intensity, our ability to be active on defense really got us to get some good steals, easy layups, and I think that got us going and we really fed off that." Cleveland scored the first two points of the game on an alley-oop dunk by Ricky Davis, but Philadelphia countered with a 20-2 run over the next six minutes. "You hope that guys can get to understand how important it is to come out with a purpose and a mind-set at the beginning," said interim Cavs coach Keith Smart, who fell to 2-11 since replacing John Lucas. "For whatever reason, we started out with three turnovers right off the bat, and that set the tone for them to get involved and get going." "We just shared the ball," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We defended really good, especially early. They started out and got a dunk and then they got another dunk on the breakaway, and then I looked up and we're up 17-4. They were the only two field goals we gave them. We just played real solid." Cleveland trailed between 13 and 28 points thereafter as it went down to its fifth straight loss and had its league-worst record fall to 10-45. "Everybody is frustrated because of losing, but we just have to keep our heads up," said Cleveland rookie Dajuan Wagner, who scored 12 points before fouling out midway through the fourth quarter. "It's going to be frustrating with everyone until you get a win and you get consistency," Smart added. "Tempers are going to flare and you can't take stuff personally. You want guys to win so when they come out of the basketball game upset, I don't take it personal. I know that person wants to win." Iverson, who shot 12-of-23 from the field and 16-of-18 from the line, added nine points in the second quarter, 10 in the third and eight in the fourth before exiting for good with 3:11 to play. "It's tough when he's hitting shots," Davis said of Iverson. "We need to work on our defensive help with Iverson and with other teams and different people scoring. We need to double- and triple-team them." The Sixers are riding their longest winning streak since taking eight straight from November 20-December 4. Zydrunas Ilgauskas led five Cavs in double figures with 19 points, but rookie Carlos Boozer, who was coming off a 23-point outing against Chicago on Tuesday, scored just six on 2-of-7 shooting. The Sixers converted 20 Cavs' turnovers into 27 points, while Cleveland scored just 11 points off 10 giveaways. The teams meet Sunday in Philadelphia. "We're going to regroup and look at film and then get ourselves ready," Smart said. "We'll have to understand what got us into such a big hole at the beginning of the game. We can either go out and play in Philadelphia or go out and lay down. They're going to have to make the decision on how they're going to play."
