Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Nets were looking for unnecessary roughness. But the Philadelphia 76ers were again too tough for them. While Jason Kidd struggled down the stretch and the Nets missed their last 12 shots, Allen Iverson carried the offense and Eric Snow starred on defense to lead the 76ers to a pivotal 92-87 victory. Philadelphia improved to a league-best 14-2 since the All-Star break, including two wins here, to pull within one-half game of first-place New Jersey in the Atlantic Division. But the 76ers won the season series, 3-1, giving them the tiebreaker edge. "Even though we're a half-game up on them, we're really like a half-game behind because they won the season series," Nets coach Byron Scott said. Defense was the difference for Philadelphia, which rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit and held the Nets without a bucket in the final 8:56. "That's a little hard to believe - nine minutes without a field goal," Scott said. "We also had countless turnovers (9) in that span." Iverson scored 11 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter and Snow put the clamps on Kidd, who had just three points on 1-of-7 shooting in the final period. Kidd also committed five turnovers in the quarter. "It feels good, but there's still a lot of work to be done," Snow said. "I think right now, we can beat any team." Snow drew an offensive foul on Kidd before Iverson blew by Kerry Kittles and hit a runner in the lane to give Philadelphia the lead for good, 88-87, with 1:16 left. Kidd threw up an airball from the right corner with Snow in his face with 53 seconds remaining. After Iverson had a 3-pointer from the right side rattle out, Kidd was short on a jumper from the lane with Snow again hounding him. Philadelphia's Aaron McKie was fouled converted 1-of-2 free throws with 20 seconds left. The Sixers had made their first 22 foul shots before McKie missed the first shot. After a timeout, New Jersey inbounded in the frontcourt. While Lucious Harris was looking for a teammate, Kidd was tangled up with Snow and fell to the floor and Philadelphia's Derrick Coleman grabbed the jersey of New Jersey's Kenyon Martin. "There was definitely contact, but no call," Kidd said. "But we still had our chances and didn't take advantage of them." "He (Kidd) pulled me," Snow said. "He initiated the contact. I didn't foul him." Martin broke free from Coleman and Harris attempted an alley-oop pass that sailed over the forward's arms and off the backboard. Snow retrieved the ball and was fouled with 15 seconds left. "I thought they would call a foul because Jason had fell," Harris said. "I overthew the ball. If he (Martin) can't jump and grab it, then nobody can." "Derrick Coleman had his (Martin's) whole jersey," Scott said. "Pulled his jersey right out of his pants. I thought that should've been a foul. He went to the basket, but when he got grabbed, it threw the timing off a little bit." Snow hit just 1-of-2 free throws, leaving the Nets a chance to tie. New Jersey ended up with two opportunities, but Kidd and Harris each missed 3-pointers before Snow converted two from the line to seal the win. One of the league's best defensive guards, Snow finished with 21 points, including 11-of-12 free throws. "Our guard play has been phenomenal," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "We're really a team now and I can't say enough about our guards." Iverson scored 23 points in the second half after hitting just 3-of-9 shots in the first half. Instead of settling for jumpers, the lightning-quick guard consistently drove by Kittles, who is four inches taller. Early in the fourth quarter, Iverson scored all of Philadelphia's points in a 9-3 run. The last two came on a fast-break layup after he poked the ball away from Kidd, giving the Sixers an 82-81 lead with 6:56 left. "It all starts with our defense," Iverson said. "Since the All-Star break, we've played great defense and we're trusting each other more as a team. We're more focused into what coach Brown wants on the basketball court." Kidd nearly recorded another triple-double. Unfortunately, turnovers were part of equation. He had 23 points on 9-of-26 shooting, a season-high 12 turnovers and nine assists. Martin collected 21 points and nine rebounds and Kittles added 19 points for the Nets, who lost for the eighth time in 11 games. "They played great defense," Kittles said. "They pressured us and forced turnovers. What else can I say?" The Nets drew just their seventh sellout crowd of the season and were in control until Iverson and Snow took over in the fourth. Kidd scored 15 points in the first half, when the Nets built a 52-41 advantage. They held their biggest lead at 65-52 on a layup by Richard Jefferson off a pass by Kidd with 7:25 left in the third quarter. But the Sixers went on a 16-4 run as Iverson scored seven points. Coleman capped the spurt with a 3-pointer, pulling Philadelphia within 69-68 with 47 seconds left. After Kidd connected on a 3-pointer, Iverson ended the quarter with a pair of free throws. "Late in the third quarter, we were kind of looking at the clock instead of just continuing to attack like we did in the first half and the lead got away from us," Scott said. The Nets hit four of their first five shots in the fourth quarter - the last a 21-foot jumper by Harris with 8:56 left - before missing their last 12 shots. Former Net Keith Van Horn had 11 of his 13 points in the first quarter. Kittles scored 10 to help New Jersey build a 25-19 lead. A dunk by Martin gave New Jersey its biggest lead of the half at 52-39 before Snow beat the buzzer with a running 17-footer.
