Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers kept rolling. The Miami Heat kept reeling. Iverson scored 32 points as the 76ers rolled to their fourth straight victory, a 103-83 triumph over the Heat, who have lost six straight home games. Despite hurting his thumb, Iverson scored 12 points in the first half, when the 76ers used terrific balance to race to a 54-37 lead. He added 10 points in each of the last two quarters, turning back a rally by the Heat in the final period. "I don't think it's as bad as I thought it was at first," Iverson said. "I did it when I stole the ball in the first quarter, and it kind of went away. I stole the ball, and I think I banged it against the floor or something. I don't know. I don't even remember." The three-time scoring champion made 13-of-25 shots and is in his best groove of the season. He has scored at least 30 points in seven of the last eight games and is shooting 48 percent (93-of-193) during that stretch. Keith Van Horn scored 17 points for the Sixers, who shot 56 percent (43-of-77) and completed their first season series sweep of the Heat since the 1989-90 campaign. Philadelphia improved to a league-best 15-2 since the All-Star break and remained one-half game behind first-place New Jersey in the Atlantic Division. "We've just been playing good team basketball, and our chemistry is a whole lot better," Iverson said. "It's just been a good rhythm for us." "It's a good win," said coach Larry Brown, who returned to Philadelphia after the game to take care of an undisclosed family situation. "Anytime you can win on the road, you've got to be happy. Allen continues to play great. Our depth's showing, and that's a good sign." Rookie Caron Butler scored a season-high 26 points for the Heat, who have lost 15 of 19 overall. "The residual of playing eight or nine games down to the wire, playing games that are close and not winning enough of them, is taking its toll," said Heat coach Pat Riley, who was swept by a division foe for the first time in his coaching career. "Tonight, we lost to a great team. They were committed." The Sixers never trailed, racing to a 28-18 lead after one quarter. Van Horn scored 12 points, including a pair of 3-pointers and an alley-oop dunk, all off feeds from Iverson. Reserve Aaron McKie scored 10 points in the first six-plus minutes of the second period, pushing the lead to 45-26. A jumper by Iverson made it 54-34 before Butler had a three-point play to close the half. In the first half, Philadelphia shot 60 percent (24-of-40) while holding Miami to 37 percent (16-of-43). "We're a real good team when we're passing and moving the ball around - helping, rotating, just being unselfish with the basketball," Sixers forward Derrick Coleman said. "I mean, that's the way the game's supposed to be played." A jumper by Iverson, two free throws by Van Horn and another by Iverson after a flagrant foul on Anthony Carter gave the Sixers their largest lead at 59-37 with 9:36 left in the third period. The lead was still 69-49 before Miami closed the quarter with an 11-3 surge powered by five points from Butler. Jumpers by Malik Allen and Butler cut the deficit to 74-66 with 10:35 to go. "He's playing well," Riley said of Butler. "We're going to him a lot. We're going to try to change some things and feature him more. He wants to be good, and I think that's one of his great attributes. He's got great character. He's going to be great." Iverson and Van Horn drilled 3-pointers over a zone to rebuild the lead to 14 points, and the Heat got no closer than 12 thereafter. Iverson added another from the arc to make it 91-75 with just under five minutes to play. "He was very good tonight," Riley said. "We tried to zone him a little bit and keep him away from going to the basket on us, but he was able to hit jumpers on us." Kenny Thomas scored 16 points off the bench and McKie added 14 for the Sixers, who held a 43-34 rebounding advantage. Thomas picked up the slack for Coleman, who bruised his left thumb in the third quarter and did not return, finishing with just four points. "The X-rays were negative," he said. "I've just got numbness with it right now, in my fingers and thumb." Reserve Vladimir Stepania had 14 points and eight rebounds for Miami, which shot 43 percent (33-of-77).
