Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers are more than just Allen Iverson's team after all. Kenny Thomas collected a season high-tying 27 points, 13 rebounds and a season-best seven assists to help the 76ers defeat the Dallas Mavericks, 107-98, and snap a four-game losing streak. John Salmons scored a career-high 21 points and Willie Green added 19 - one shy of his career best - off the bench for the Sixers, who are 4-1 without Iverson and 0-3 with the All-Star since March 8. Iverson sat out with a sore right knee, joining Glenn Robinson and Derrick Coleman on the sidelines. Before the game, Coleman was placed on the injured list. "We've been able to find guys that step up their games in these situations," Sixers coach Chris Ford said. "Johnny and Aaron (McKie, who had 16 points) and Willie Green - those guys all stepped up and did their jobs. They had the opportunity and made the best of it." "We just knew we had to take everything up a notch," Green said. "Of course, we don't have Glenn and we don't have Allen, so everybody knew we had to take it up a notch. Everybody was mentally ready." With the victory, the 11th-place Sixers (29-42) moved within three games of Cleveland for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff berth. "It is basically keeping hope alive," Thomas said of the win. Philadelphia, which took the lead for good during an 8-0 run that opened a 26-20 advantage late in the first quarter, shot 55 percent (36-of-66), including 11-of-18 from the arc. Salmons made 5-of-6 3-pointers. "There's no excuse for our defense," said Dallas guard Steve Nash, who had 10 points and eight assists. "You can at least guard somebody a little bit when things aren't going well for you. I want to give (the Sixers) credit becasue they made some great shots and played well. I think part of the reason they made so many shots and guys got on fire was because we gave them so much confidence." "I don't think we've scored like that all year," Thomas said. "At halftime we had 61 points. I don't think we've shot like that in a long time. It felt good, though, because we had to match their intensity and knock down shots because they are a scoring team." Dirk Nowitzki scored 30 points to pace the Mavericks, who had won four of five. "We've been losing games like this all year long, games against teams we should beat," Nowitzki said. "We don't really jump on them early. We give them layups. The next thing you know their confidence is up and they start banking shots in. They start making shots that they usually don't make. "It's our fault that we don't set the tone from the beginning and we let them hang in there. At the end, we end up losing. It was the same thing with Atlanta last week, it's been the same with a lot of other teams we should have beaten all year long." Dallas coach Don Nelson was ejected 33 seconds into the second half for picking up two technicals, arguing a foul called on forward Eduardo Najera. "We just got beat tonight. It's plain and simple," said Dallas assistant Donn Nelson, who took over coaching duties when his father was ejected. "Thomas was exceptional. He gave us all kinds of problems and we didn't have an answer for that."
