Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Now that the Philadelphia 76ers have won eight straight games again, it will be interesting to see if this also is "fool's gold." Allen Iverson scored 24 points to lead six players in double figures as the 76ers trounced the Utah Jazz, 104-83, to match their longest winning streak of the season. The 76ers also won eight in a row from November 20-December 4, capping a terrific start to the season and improving their mark to 15-4. However, many of the wins came against teams with losing records, and coach Larry Brown referred to the team's good record as "fool's gold." Brown appeared to be right when his team went 4-14 in its next 18 games and puttered along around .500 entering the All-Star break. But Philadelphia is the only team that has yet to lose since the break, climbing to fourth in the Eastern Conference. I think we're playing better, I really do," Brown said. "Earlier in the season I didn't feel like we were playing the right way. I think we're trying to play the right way now." "I don't even remember the last streak, because right after (that) we started to lose," Iverson said. "I try not to even think about that. I'm just concentrating on this one because this streak is happening right now. I'm concentrating on the things we're doing on the basketball court that are helping us be successful." During their current run, the Sixers have beaten just two teams with winning records - the New Jersey Nets and Utah, which looked old and slow in failing to keep up with Philadelphia's fast pace. "We've beaten some strong teams and proved to ourselves that we can play with some of the best teams in the East," Sixers forward Keith Van Horn said. "Tonight, we proved that we can beat some playoff-tested teams from the West. We've had a nice mix of wins, and hopefully it will continue." "Just beating the team the way we beat that team tonight, it makes me feel good," Iverson said. "That's a tough team. That's only the second time I've beaten that team in my career. So obviously I feel good about the win." Now the Sixers embark on a five-game road trip through the Western Conference. Their last western trip came after their quick start and they went just 1-5. "If we're going to be successful on the road, we have to defend and rebound the ball," Brown said. "We have to take care of the ball, especially on the road. The western teams are primarily running teams. They execute great, and they're really offensive teams. We don't have easy games coming up. "We are going out west very confident," Van Horn said. Derrick Coleman scored 16 points and Kenny Thomas added 15 for the Sixers, who shot 54 percent (42-of-78) from the field as they beat the Jazz for just the sixth time in the last 27 meetings. Karl Malone scored 19 points for Utah, which has lost four of its last five games, including the first three of a four-game road trip. "It's tough because if we don't get things straight, we could not make the playoffs," said Malone, whose team is tied for sixth in the West. "I know that people might say that might sound crazy. But if we don't get our stuff together, that could easily happen." The Jazz held a 28-24 lead after one period but fell apart in the second quarter, making just 5-of-16 shots and committing eight turnovers. Iverson scored seven points in a 14-1 run that closed the first half and gave Philadelphia a 55-41 lead. "I thought that was the best quarter we had in a long time," Brown said. "We got good shots and we moved the ball pretty good. They zoned and doubled Allen a lot, which gave us some real opportunities." Iverson had five more points in a 13-6 surge that opened the third quarter and pushed the lead to 68-47. The Jazz pulled within 12 points before the Sixers regrouped and rebuilt the advantage to 82-63 entering the final period. Eric Snow had 12 points and 11 assists, Aaron McKie scored 11 points and Van Horn added 10 and 12 rebounds for Philadelphia, which held a 56-26 advantage in points in the paint. Calbert Cheaney and Mark Jackson scored 10 points each for Utah, which shot just 42 percent (29-of-69) and surrendered 24 points on 19 turnovers. "We felt sorry for ourselves and that's what good teams will do, make you feel sorry for yourself," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "You like to have a little hole to crawl in sometimes." Former Sixer Matt Harpring did not have a pleasant return. In his first game in Philadelphia since signing a four-year, $18.5 million contract with Utah, he missed six of seven shots before spraining an ankle in the second quarter and sitting out the rest of the game.
