Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers kept rookie sensation Dajuan Wagner from having a happy homecoming. Born and raised in nearby Camden, New Jersey, Wagner scored 23 points, but the 76ers continued their dominance of the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 116-103 victory as Allen Iverson netted 23 points and Derrick Coleman added 20 and 13 rebounds. Wagner, playing his first game in Philadelphia, made his first four shots. He had 15 points at halftime, including a 3-pointer from half-court that beat the buzzer at the end of the first quarter. The 20-year-old guard noted the large number of Cavaliers' jerseys in the stands. "They've been supporting me since I was young," Wagner said. "I tried to do something positive because they were looking out for me. It's a dream to know that my people came over from Camden to watch me play in the NBA. That's something I dreamed about all of my life. It was just like playing at Camden High." Wagner finished 6-of-11 from the field and 8-of-8 from the free-throw line in 27 minutes off the bench. "I'm just trying to help the team and was trying to get comfortable," he said. "I feel more comfortable coming off the bench and running the point. I did all right, but we lost, so you can't be too happy." Wagner spoke to Philadelphia coach Larry Brown after the game. "He said I played hard and (that) I'm getting better," Wagner said. "I've known him since I was young. He always gave me some tips about the game. He's one of the best coaches ever." Coming off a 41-point effort in Friday's 119-99 victory at Cleveland, Iverson shot 7-of-23 from the field but converted 9-of-13 free throws to extend the NBA's longest active double-figure scoring streak to 175 games. He has reached at least 20 points in 16 consecutive contests. "We had a game plan to try to force him go left a lot more," Cleveland forward Jumaine Jones said. "Him going right, it's almost impossible to stop him. (We) tried to make a conscious effort in helping out, but it didn't make much of a difference." Keith Van Horn contributed 17 points and seven rebounds as the 76ers completed a home-and-home sweep and stretched their longest current winning streak against any opponent to 16 games. "That shows you how bad they've been," Brown said. "That's one team we've played good against since I've been here. I never feel like the game will be easy against them. I look out there and see how athletic they are and worry about it." Coleman did not take the Cavs, who have a league-low 10 wins, lightly. "We never underestimated any team that is out there on the court," he said. "We go out with one thing in mind, that's to win a basketball game. We have to keep continuing to work, no matter if we are playing against Cleveland or against the Lakers. We are playing well together and helping each other a lot more than early on. As long as we move the ball and make teamwork on defense and not take quick shots, we are a pretty good team." Philadelphia has won six in a row overall for the first time since an eight-game run from November 20-December 4. The victory also was Brown's 862nd, moving him within two of tying Jack Ramsay for seventh on the all-time list. "It's a good win," said Brown, whose team moved into a tie with Boston for second place in the Atlantic Division. "Any win at this time of year is a good win for us, especially at home. Hopefully, we can start playing well at a home. We are playing better, we got a bit deeper, maybe that helped. Our bench played well tonight, and that's what we need. Our starters played great." Ricky Davis scored 20 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas chipped in 16, but the Cavaliers have lost six straight and nine in a row on the road. "So far, it's hard to see a crack of sun from the clouds," Ilgauskas said. "It's going to be all on us to take care of business next year and not get in our losing ways like we did this year. The guys are frustrated. You try to find positives out of every game, work in practice and try to get better. We'll be all right." Darius Miles hit a jumper and Milt Palacio made a driving layup to give the Cavaliers a 22-20 advantage with 3:10 left in the first quarter. But the Sixers ran off seven straight points and took a 27-22 lead on a three-point play by Coleman with 1:36 remaining in the period. They never trailed thereafter. Philadelphia used a 16-2 run to take a 17-point lead in the second quarter. Coleman scored five points and Iverson added four during the stretch, which ended 66 seconds before halftime. The Sixers had a 69-54 lead at intermission, establishing a season high in points in the first half. "They made some adjustments (in the second quarter) and we took some quick shots and put them in transition," Cleveland Keith Smart said. "In the first quarter, we had them on their heels going in and out of our zone. "But the second quarter, we kind of went in and out of (our zone) but they made some adjustments and then we missed some shots, which put them in transition right away. What killed us, too, were offensive rebounds. Second-chance points, I think, were 19 points at the half, and the bulk of it came out of the zone." Philadephia opened the fourth quarter with an 8-1 spurt to take its largest lead, 102-78, with 9:22 left. The Sixers rolled to their third straight easy win as they topped 110 points for the third time in four games. Philadephia placed six players in double figures. Kenny Thomas had 15 points and seven rebounds and Brian Skinner scored 10 points for the Sixers, who shot 49 percent (42-of-85) and converted 30-of-38 free throws. Miles and Jones each scored 14 points as the Cavs shot 46 percent (37-of-80) and were outrebounded, 44-37. They yielded 23 points off 17 turnovers.
