Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Are the Philadelphia 76ers a better team without Allen Iverson? The 76ers continued to win without their injured superstar, rolling to an 86-71 victory over the slumping Cleveland Cavaliers that further tightened the Eastern Conference playoff race. John Salmons scored a career-high 22 points for the Sixers, who notched their third straight win. All have come without Iverson, the three-time scoring champion who remains sidelined with a sore knee. Since February 29, Iverson has played in just five of 14 games due to recurring knee woes. Philadelphia is 0-5 with him and 8-1 without him. "It's just coming together," guard Aaron McKie said. "Going out there playing the game that you love and the guys are having fun doing it. With Sammy (Dalembert) and Kenny (Thomas), those guys are still young. Willie (Green), Kyle (Korver) and Johnny (Salmons), those guys are still like babies when it comes to this. They're bringing new life to this, good energy and they're learning on the go, on the fly." "If you put forth a good effort, usually good things will happen," Sixers coach Chris Ford said. "They're just having fun playing out there. I can't ask any more than what they are laying out there each and every night right now." Also playing without injured No. 2 scorer Glenn Robinson, the Sixers relied on hustle, teamwork and timely 3-point shooting to deal the Cavaliers their fourth straight loss. Leading the way was Salmons, a second-year swingman whose playing time has increased in the absence of Iverson and Robinson. "The more you play, the more confident you'll become," Salmons said. "It's just fun to go out there and just do your job. You're going out there and giving your all. You're winning and you're playing with a great bunch of guys that is coming together as a team." Salmons made 8-of-13 shots, including 3-of-4 3-pointers. He had a pair of steals and did a solid defensive job on Cavaliers rookie phenom LeBron James, who made just 5-of-13 shots and committed five turnovers. "Johnny had a great night offensively, but I thought more importantly was what he was doing defensively and making LeBron work for everything he got," Ford said. "When I got to college, freshman year, I knew the only way I was going to play was to play defense," Salmons said. "Since then, that has just been a part of how I play." Kenny Thomas had 19 points and nine rebounds and Dalembert added 12 and 10 for the Sixers (31-42), who inched closer to eighth place and the East's final playoff berth. James had 16 points and seven assists for the Cavaliers (31-40), who fell one-half game behind Boston into ninth place in the East. Philadelphia visits Boston on Sunday. Cleveland continued to struggle without point guard Jeff McInnis, who sat out for the third time in the last four games with a shoulder injury. The Cavaliers had won seven in a row before he got hurt. "(The Sixers) are just out and out playing, whereas we are searching," cavaliers coach Paul Silas said. "That's basically the difference." "I don't know if we are, as players, using that as an excuse or not," forward Carlos Boozer said. "If we are, we need to stop." The Sixers never trailed, grabbing a 25-16 lead after one period behind eight points from Salmons. He helped extend a 44-34 halftime lead to 79-61 with nine points in the third quarter. Cleveland trailed by 25 points early in the fourth quarter before using a 10-0 run to get within 79-64. Salmons answered with a 3-pointer with 4:44 to go to repel the rally. McKie scored 12 points and Eric Snow had 13 assists for Philadelphia, which made 7-of-13 3-pointers, held a 41-32 advantage on the glass and limited Cleveland to one fast-break point.
