Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Who's Josh Davis? That's probably what the Boston Celtics are asking. Davis turned his first start of the season into a personal showcase with a career-high 19 points, helping the Philadelphia 76ers snap a three-game slide with a 110-97 victory over the slumping Celtics. The 24-year-old Davis had a cup of coffee with Atlanta last season, when he was better known as the MVP of the CBA. He made the 76ers out of training camp, beating out Kirk Haston and Nate James for the final roster spot. A 6-8 forward, Davis had played just 39 minutes in 10 games until Wednesday, when coach Jim O'Brien gave him a surprise start, just the second of his brief career. "It was surprising," said Davis, who started for the slumping Kenny Thomas. "Coming from the road I came from, it was a surprising turn of events. I am just excited I could do it. ... I just have to go to work." The Celtics also seemed surprised as they appeared unfamiliar with his game, which includes 3-point range. "We knew what he did. We knew he was a shooter," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "He made some shots because we were rotating. We'll live with those, but we basically knew who he was." In the pivotal third quarter, Davis scored 13 points, including 11 straight for the Sixers during a 2 1/2-minute stretch that widened the lead to 78-61. He made a 3-pointer, sank two free throws and drilled two more 3-pointers as the Celtics repeatedly failed to cover him. "I guess people were surprised," said Davis, who made 6-of-12 shots and grabbed five rebounds. "I don't think that coach was surprised nor do I think that anybody in the organization was. They've been with me the whole time here and I'm just excited that I could go out there and show everybody else what they've already seen." Part of the reason Davis was open so often was Allen Iverson, who strafed the defense for 28 points and 10 assists, adding three steals. Even with a lax fourth quarter, Philadelphia shot 50 percent (39-of-78) from the field, including 8-of-20 from the arc. "(Davis) did a lot for us," Iverson said. "He can shoot the ball well. I told him, when a guy backs off of you or doesn't respect you, you have to let it go. Make or miss, we can live with it." Thomas played just three minutes, scoring two points. He began the season as the team's second-best player behind Iverson but now is behind Davis, a journeyman. "I've never shot this bad in my career - 33 percent or whatever it is," Thomas said. "He's the coach. He's got to do what he's got to do to win games." "It doesn't mean that I don't expect a great deal out of Kenny Thomas. I do," said O'Brien, who has changed his starters at every position except point guard. "I think Kenny can still have a great year and for right now, I just thought we needed a change." Marc Jackson scored 17 points for the Sixers, who beat the Celtics for the second time in as many meetings this season. Kyle Korver also made his first start and scored 11 points. Unlike their first meeting, when the Sixers stormed back in the fourth quarter, they never trailed in this one. Ricky Davis came off the bench to score 17 of his 23 points in the second quarter and Paul Pierce added 22 for Boston, which has lost four of its last five games. "We haven't learned how to win yet," Pierce said. "(We've) given up 100 points in all our losses, and we just don't understand how to win as a team."
