Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers finally figured out how to guard Tracy McGrady. The 76ers harassed McGrady late in the fourth quarter and overtime while getting big games from Allen Iverson and Kenny Thomas as they clinched their sixth straight playoff berth with a 118-113 victory over the Orlando Magic. Iverson scored a season-high 42 points, including two huge baskets in overtime. He has 46 career 40-point games and the 76ers have won the last 12. "We just had to keep fighting and keep competing," said Iverson, who made 15-of-31 shots. "We knew anything could happen." Thomas continued his stellar play with 24 points and a season-high 20 rebounds, 12 on the offensive end. He helped the Sixers to a 61-38 advantage on the boards. "I have never been to the playoffs," Thomas said. "Every time I step on the floor I am going to try and help my team win." "Every game he's going to the boards and you can't block him out," Brown said. But the key to Philadelphia's fourth straight road win was its defense on McGrady, who has supplanted Iverson as the NBA's leading scorer. Over the last seven minutes, the Sixers limited McGrady to one basket and one free throw as they repeatedly chased the ball out of his hands. "We did a really poor job of executing and they came down and executed well and played great defense down the stretch," McGrady said. I think they had the mental toughness. They were more physical than we were down the stretch of the game and it showed." Since McGrady joined the Magic three seasons ago, the Sixers had lost eight of nine meetings until a 99-98 home win on February 14. Even in that game, McGrady made a tying 3-pointer before Iverson's free throw won it. McGrady had his usual big game with 39 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. But he made just 13-of-33 shots as he was hounded by Thomas, Aaron McKie and former Magic Monty Williams. "We adjusted to the pick-and-roll better," McKie said. "Our mentality is we don't ever give up. We continue to keep fighting out there and we always give ourselves a chance." "We wanted everyone to play team defense, play your man, but know that he was going to make a big play if we didn't pay attention to him," Williams said. "He still got some open looks, but fortunately for us, they didn't go down." McGrady scored eight straight points for Orlando on a dunk and a pair of three-point plays to give the Magic their largest lead at 107-97 with 3:31 left in the fourth quarter. But Derrick Coleman made a jumper and 3-pointer to halve the deficit, and after McGrady followed in his own miss, the Sixers stiffened on defense. "I think Derrick turned it on," Thomas said. "He had a big 3 and a big two-pointer. I think that set the tone and started us back in the game." Eric Snow made two free throws and Iverson hit a jumper to make it 109-106 with 1:29 left. A double-team on McGrady forced him to pass to Pat Garrity, who missed a jumper. Coleman made a layup, and the Sixers ran a second defender at a driving McGrady, who shoveled to Steven Hunter. With 40 seconds to go, Hunter was fouled but made just 1-of-2 free throws. Snow's jumper at the other end tied it at 110-110, and Philadelphia forced McGrady to miss a runner and denied him the ball on Orlando's last two posssessions. "It was just tough on us, because we didn't want to leave those shooters," Iverson said. "So Tracy was able to get to the basket and make a couple of shots, a couple of and-ones. At the end of the game, coach really adjusted well to that and we were able to stop that play down the stretch." Thomas started overtime by hammering home Iverson's missed driving layup. McGrady had a free throw and a tough fadeaway jumper but did not score again. Iverson made a pull-up jumper in the lane and a 19-footer around McKie's steal from McGrady, giving the Sixers the lead for good at 116-113 with 1:24 to go. Orlando needed two timeouts to inbound the ball, and once it did almost immediately committed a turnover. "I thought the did a nice job defensively," said Magic coach Doc Rivers, whose team had won six of its last seven games. A pair of offensive rebounds helped the Sixers hold the ball for nearly a minute. McGrady drove to set up Garrity, whose potential tying 3-pointer clanged off the rim. Snow rebounded with 11 seconds to go and made two free throws to seal it. "I had a great look at it," Garrity said. "It was a great drive by T-Mac." The Sixers (44-29) remained within 1 1/2 games of first-place New Jersey in the Atlantic Division. "It caps off a big month for us where we had 12 road games and four home games and ended up going 11-5, which is pretty special," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "When we were looking at the schedule back in November, I really dreaded this month," Iverson said. "It was a hard schedule and we were on the road for many games. It was tough." Coleman had 18 points and 13 rebounds, Snow scored 16 points and a foul-plagued Keith Van Horn added 10 for the Sixers, who shot 43 percent (41-of-95) and made 33-of-43 free throws. At the line, Iverson was 10-of-14 and Snow 10-of-13 as they fouled out Magic guards Jacque Vaughn and Darrell Armstrong. Hunter had a season-high 15 points and career highs of seven rebounds and five blocks for the Magic, who shot 45 percent (41-of-91) but just 8-of-28 from the arc. Rookie Gordan Giricek scored 15 points and Armstrong and Garrity added 13 each. "What we need to do is get some rebounds," Rivers said. "The only thing I didn;t like about the game is I thought they were tougher than us and that doesn't sit well right now." Players and coaches were blown away by the matchup between Iverson and McGrady, two of the best players in the league. "I've played with a lot of great dudes, and he and Allen are right there," Williams said. "Guys like that, you can't stop. There's just no way you can stop them." "They're two of the best players I've ever seen," Brown said. "Allen and Tracy, they ought to bottle those two kids."
