Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Memphis Grizzlies took advantage of their second chances. The Philadelphia 76ers needed a second option. The Grizzlies dominated the offensive boards, scored 19 second-chance points and withstood 38 points and 10 assists by Allen Iverson in a 98-95 victory over the 76ers. Dahntay Jones scored a career-high 23 points for the Grizzlies, who have won five of six overall and seven of their last nine on the road. "There are not that many easy buildings in the league," Jones said. "It makes us feel great. We keep pushing hard and we keep working hard. It's good to see the hard work paying off." "I can't say that we have a definite way, night in and night out, to win a basketball game," Grizzlies coach Mike Fratello said. "We just felt against Philadelphia and their defense, we had to give ourselves enough shots." The game featured 25 lead changes, including five in the fourth quarter. Philadelphia opened a 93-90 lead with 3:39 remaining on two free throws by Iverson, who was playing despite the effects of the flu and the only 76er to score in the last seven minutes. "I thought we wasted a great effort by Allen Iverson," 76ers coach Jim O'Brien said. "I thought he was absolutely terrific. He showed a lot of guts coming back from the flu. Thirty-eight points and 10 assists was a brilliant performance by him. It's sad that we couldn't pull the game out." "At one point, I got into rhythm and they tried to take everything from me, I was trying to get the ball into the hands of the guys that were open. It just didn't work out for us tonight." Jones sank two free throws and the Grizzlies held the ball for nearly a minute as they grabbed two offensive rebounds before a layup by Stromile Swift gave them a 94-93 lead with 2:03 left. Iverson answered with two free throws at the 1:44 mark, but the Sixers did not score again. Shane Battier's two free throws with 1:29 to go gave the Grizzlies the lead for good. "It was such a physical game. It was one those games where you just threw it up and everyone went for it," Battier said. "The Sixers were doing the same thing on their end of the floor. We were lucky to get some bounces, and convert those bounces." Although it did not score, Memphis burned the clock with another offensive rebound on its next possession. Iverson tried a lob pass to Samuel Dalembert that was broken up and Jason Williams made two foul shots for a 98-95 edge with 13 seconds to play. Sharpshooter Kyle Korver missed an open 3-pointer just before the buzzer, sending the Sixers to their second straight setback. "It can't play out any better than that, you can't ask for a better shot," said Korver, who has made a pair of tying buzzer shots and a game-winner this season. "I used to dream about hitting the last shot to win the game or sent it into overtime. Even though it came on a broken play, it was still a good shot. It hurts a lot. I really should have made that shot." "It didn't work the way we drew it up but we got the shot we wanted. We just didn't make it," Iverson said. "If it came down to that shot 82 games for the whole season, we'll take that one. We'll take him shooting that shot." Philadelphia is 8-10 in games decided by five points or less and has played an additional three overtime games. "I guess that we're close to being a real good team, but we're there at being a mediocre team," Iverson said. "I just feel bad that we lose the close ones because we are trying to do everything we can do to go out there on the court and win basketball games." Iverson leads the NBA in scoring at 28.8 points per game. The Sixers have four other double-figure scorers but none above 12.3 points. "The guys got good shots and they didn't go down," Iverson said. "We're trying to do everything the right way, trying to play with each other, trying to play unselfish. The effort is there and that's the only thing that I care about." Swift scored 17 points for the Grizzlies, who held a 43-37 advantage on the glass, including 14-8 on the offensive end.
