Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Even without big men Keith Van Horn and Derrick Coleman, the Philadelphia 76ers pushed around the Boston Celtics. Allen Iverson scored 25 points and Kenny Thomas added 15 and 20 rebounds as the 76ers dominated the second half in a 99-78 rout of the slumping Celtics. For the third straight game, the 76ers played without the 6-10 Van Horn, who has a strained tendon in his left foot. Late in the second quarter, they lost the 6-10 Coleman to strained left quadriceps. If Philadelphia was at a disadvantage, you could not tell. Even without their two big men, the 76ers held a 49-39 advantage on the boards and a staggering 46-22 edge in points in the paint. "That's what we ask for from guys," Iverson said. "That's the way it has to be for any type of successful team because the game is so physical and so long, it's hard to make it through the whole season without any type of injuries." "We don't worry about guys being injured or banged up because ultimately, nobody cares," 76ers guard Aaron McKie added. "We know we still have a job to go out there and do, and we just go out there and play." Led by Iverson and Thomas, the 76ers also outworked the Celtics, who heard boos from the home crowd early in the fourth quarter. Iverson added five steals to his league-leading total while Thomas registered his second 20-rebound game in the last six contests. "They had 15 (offensive rebounds)? It seemed like 75 tonight," Celtics coach Jim O'Brien said. "We did not get the job done on the glass no matter who we had in the game. Kenny Thomas was a complete load on the glass and we did not get our bodies on him." "I think I came out a little more aggressive in the second half as far as rebounding," Thomas said. "I was just trying to go after every rebound and if the points came, they came." The Sixers had 19 second-chance points and held the Celtics scoreless in transition. They limited Boston to 10-of-40 shooting in the second half and 35 percent (27-of-77) overall. "We did all the gritty things out there on the court as far as beating them to lose balls, rebounding the ball real well, offensively and defensively," Iverson said. "We did a good job executing offensively in the second half. When I was struggling, my teammates were there to pick up the slack." Philadelphia (47-31) won for the 13th time in its last 16 road games. It pulled within one game of Atlantic Division-leading New Jersey and Detroit for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Paul Pierce had 24 points and 11 rebounds for Boston (42-37), which has lost nine of its last 13 games and will begin the playoffs on the road. "Hopefully, we can finish out these last three games strong," Pierce said. "We've got to finish off on a positive not and try to carry some momentum into the playoffs." A rare jump shot by Tyrone Hill opened the second half and gave the Sixers the lead for good at 45-44. Thomas scored 10 points in the first seven-plus minutes to help build a 63-54 lead. "Kenny Thomas really dominated the rebounds tonight and we just didn't have an answer for him," Pierce said. McKie's 3-pointer pushed the advantage to double digits and Iverson beat the buzzer with a 40-footer for a 79-66 lead. The fourth quarter began with two free throws by Thomas and layups by McKie and Hill, bringing out the boobirds and forcing the Celtics to call timeout. After layups by Antoine Walker and Pierce, Boston went scoreless for 6 1/2 minutes as Philadelphia opened a 25-point bulge. "We got a bit stagnant and missed shots," Walker said. "They controlled the glass and were very active. They hustled and did a good job of coming in here to get the win." McKie scored 14 points and Eric Snow added 11 for the Sixers, who shot 47 percent (38-of-81). Walker scored 12 points and Tony Delk added 11 for Boston. Walker and Pierce, the Celtics' All-Star combo, made just 10-of-39 shots. Boston held leads of 10 points in the first quarter and eight in the second, but both times the Sixers stormed back behind Iverson to tie it. "This game could have gotten out of hand early and he kept us in the game early," Brown said. "I thought that was the big key."
