Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Kyle Korver helped the Philadelphia 76ers hand the Indiana Pacers more heartache. Korver's 15-footer with 6.5 seconds remaining lifted the 76ers to an 89-88 victory over the slumping Pacers and into first place in the Atlantic Division. Superstar Allen Iverson returned from a shoulder injury with 27 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for the Sixers (21-23), who moved ahead of Boston (21-24) in the division. "All we want to do is win the Atlantic," Iverson said. "We don't care about the records and how things are going. All we want to do is win the Atlantic. We win the Atlantic, that's third place (in the conference)." The fourth quarter featured four ties and seven lead changes. Philadelphia had a chance to take the lead, but Samuel Dalembert had his dunk snuffed by Jermaine O'Neal with 20 seconds left. Stephen Jackson, who scored a season-high 24 points, was fouled with 17 seconds to go. An 82 percent foul shooter who had made his first five free throws, Jackson missed both, giving the Sixers another chance. "I'm stepping up and taking the blame," Jackson said. "If I make those free throws, the outcome would have been different. If anybody says that it's not my fault, they are just trying to make me feel better." Iverson, who beat Indiana with a jumper at the overtime buzzer on November 12, drove right and passed back to Korver. The second-year forward was hounded by Anthony Johnson but took one dribble, then stepped back and splashed his jumper. "The play was for Allen. They cut him off and he looked back," Korver said. "I could have pulled it but it wouldn't have been a great shot. I knew that we had some time left and I saw that I could shoot it. I took it and it went down." "It seems like it comes down to a last-second shot against Indiana," Iverson said. "I was thinking that I could get another game-winner against that team, but they played great defense on me and they shut me down. I got it to Kyle and he did the rest." Iverson disrupted the ensuing inbounds pass, which went to O'Neal above the 3-point arc. He dribbled in and missed a 17-footer that Dalembert rebounded to seal the Sixers' fourth straight home win. Korver had 17 points and nine rebounds as he continues to emerge as a pivotal player. He forced overtime with a 3-pointer at the buzzer in New Orleans on Friday and scored 12 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter at Dallas on Saturday. "I knew that I had to be ready," said Korver, who has hit at least one three-pointer in 22 straight games. "Sometimes I get a feeling that I know that I'm going to make it. That's just the way I feel sometimes and that's how I felt tonight." "You see a guy in his second year, able to hit a big shot like that, says a lot about him as a player, says a lot about his confidence, says a lot about the confidence that the coaching staff and we have in him," Iverson said. "The expression on his face after he made it, I guess he was just feeling like the game wasn't over, because it seemed like it was just a regular free throw or something that he made. But it was a big shot. I know he felt good inside." Indiana probably has had its fill of Philadelphia. The Pacers (20-23) fell to 0-3 against the Sixers and behind them in the Eastern Conference standings. They have squandered fourth-quarter leads in all three games. "This is just another missed opportunity," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "We had these guys down in two other games as well and weren't able to finish the games off. Now they've won three from us. It's disappointing." "I would like to win one that doesn't come down to the dead end," Sixers coach Jim O'Brien said. "It is a great way to win a basketball game to a team that is struggling but will be a team to be reckon with in the playoffs." O'Neal had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Pacers, who have lost a season-high five in a row. They are 0-4 since Jackson returned from his 30-game suspension for his role in the brawl in Detroit on November 19. A three-time scoring champion who had missed the last three games, Iverson did not shoot well, making just 8-of-24 shots. But his three-point play answered Jackson's 3-pointer and gave the Sixers a 79-78 lead with 6:21 to play. "My shoulder didn't bother me at all, but I'm still not over the flu," Iverson said. "My chest was bothering me and I couldn't breathe the way I wanted to." Jackson's spinning drive gave Indiana an 85-84 edge with 3:08 to go. Kenny Thomas split a pair of free throws to tie it, but Iverson fouled Fred Jones on a 3-pointer. Jones made all three free throws for an 88-85 advantage with 1:29 to go. Iverson, who was 11-of-12 from the line and is 44-of-46 in his last three games, sank a pair to make it a one-point game with 46 seconds remaining. Thomas scored 12 points for the Sixers, who held a 42-32 advantage on the glass. Jones scored 12 for the Pacers, who missed 10 free throws in 31 tries. Pacers point guard Jamaal Tinsley left the game late in the second quarter with a sprained left foot and did not return. He is listed as day to day.
