Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson said he was ready to play but never came off the bench. Larry Brown is sure happy to be on the other bench. The Detroit Pistons extended their NBA record for consecutive games holding opponents under 70 points to five, rolling to an 85-69 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers sure could have used Iverson, a three-time scoring champion who missed his fourth straight game with a sore right knee and now appears to be embroiled in yet another controversy. "I feel real disappointed because I told the trainers I was going to play," Iverson said. "But he (Sixers interim coach Chris Ford) said I hadn't run up and down the court and he wasn't sure about my conditioning. "I could have played 48 minutes tonight. I have never had problems with my conditioning before. For a coach to say that he thinks my conditioning isn't there, that was something new for me. Because nobody never told me that, nobody questioned my conditioning or injuries or anything like that." Without their superstar guard, the Sixers got little from Eric Snow and Aaron McKie, who combined to shoot 4-of-16 from the field. Yet Ford defended his decision not to start Iverson, who was in uniform before the game. "I wasn't comfortable putting him out there in the starting lineup," Ford said. "He's yet to scrimmage in the full-court yet and if you look at the number of days he's been out, it's quite a few. I was concerned that if he would go out there and try to play, that we could now lose him for another five games down the road. I want to see him get out there and compete and go up and down in a scrimmage first." Iverson was also insulted that Ford considered using him off the bench instead of as a starter. "I'm a starter. I've been a starter here for eight years. I'm not a sixth man," Iverson said. "I know in this league, and it has been with us, the Sixers, if someone comes back from an injury, if he's a starter, he starts. What's the difference? If you're going to cut my time down, cut my time down. It doesn't make any difference. I'm a starter." Iverson's rants are no longer the problem of Brown, who left the Sixers after last season and was hired as Pistons coach. Part of his reason for leaving was his belief that Iverson was "too immature" to handle the role as team leader. The tandem of Ben Wallace and Rasheed Wallace was too much for Philadelphia inside. Sixers power forward Kenny Thomas, who entered the game with 10 straight double-doubles, made just 2-of-9 shots and scored eight points, grabbing 10 rebounds. Detroit held Philadelphia to 39 percent shooting and blocked 10 shots, four by Ben Wallace. Rasheed Wallace finished with 14 points, eight rebounds and two blocks and Corliss Williamson scored 16 points off the bench for the Pistons. Iverson's absence did not stop the Sixers from winning here on December 9, 78-76. But that was before the Pistons acquired Rasheed Wallace before the trade deadline and Philadelphia was also without forward Glenn Robinson, who is scheduled to undergo elbow surgery Tuesday. "We're not going out there planning to hold teams under 70 points, we're just playing good defense," said Rasheed Wallace. "If it gets late and we see a team is getting close to 70, we're going to start paying attention. But for the first 3 1/2 quarters, we aren't really thinking about it." A 20-9 run helped the Pistons open a 66-49 lead with 2:46 left in the third quarter. All that was left after that was to see if they could hold another opponent under 70. It didn't appear likely when Marc Jackson hit a pair of free throws to give the Sixers 69 points with 2:03 left. But they failed to score on their last four possessions. "That was crazy man," said Detroit's Chauncey Billups, who scored 13 points. "If we're in the range of keeping teams under 70, then we are going to shoot for that. We take a lot of pride in knowing that (the streak) hasn't been done before."
