Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Vince Carter found his shooting touch in the second half. Chris Webber still hasn't found his. Carter scored 26 of his 32 points after the break to lead the New Jersey Nets to a 99-93 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Carter - who also had eight rebounds and seven assists - made just 1-of-9 shots in the first half, which ended with New Jersey trailing, 41-36. But he found his stroke in the third quarter, nailing 5-of-6 shots for 14 points to help the Nets take a 68-64 edge into the final period, one they made stand. "I got re-taped, believe it or not," Carter said. "I was a little hesitant because I rolled my ankle early. I was real short on my shots. I got it re-taped, felt rejuvenated, and was I was ready to go." After Allen Iverson connected from the arc to get Philadelphia within 88-85 with 2:05 left, Carter answered with a pair of free throws with 1:49 remaining and the Sixers did not threaten thereafter. "(In) the second half, I think you have to give our guys a tremendous amount of credit after getting down early to fight back," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "Just real good ball movement on the offensive end, the ability obviously to make shots, (and) Vince stepped up in a huge way. We had contributions from a lot of different people." "We were just relentless as a team," Carter said. "We were able to maintain their runs back at us. Hitting shots really helped. We tried to limit their second shots. We know that A.I. (Iverson) is going to get his shots. It was important to get him to take tough shots, make his miss, then get some rebounds and baskets in transition." Webber, whom the Sixers acquired from Sacramento last week, had made just 13-of-36 shots in his first two games with the team and was even worse in this one, managing just 10 points on 4-of-18 shooting and committing five turnovers with just three assists. "Everybody knows what type of player I am," Webber said. "It's pretty obvious to see the adjustments I have to make. No excuses - starting with me, I need to adjust. I've never had only five assists in three games in my life. I need to adjust, make it happen, and figure it out." "He's picking things up quickly and it's going to take some time," Sixers coach Jim O'Brien said. "He's only been here five days, and until we can get enough repetitions either in games or in practice there are going to be some rough spots for us." Iverson said he empathized with Webber's struggles. "I want him to play well so bad," Iverson said. "I know how rough it is in Philadelphia. I know how hard it is to survive here. I've been through my ups and downs here, I struggle here. I've dealt with criticism the whole time I've been here, and I've been able to handle it. ... I just don't want to see what happened to me happen to him, and him not be able to respond. "I honestly think he'll be able to handle it, because he's a strong man. But I just want him to play well, before the people start getting on him, and people start saying different things, and writing different things. And he wants it so bad." Clifford Robinson scored 18 points and Jason Kidd added 15 for the Nets, who posted their third straight victory and fifth in six games. "To win this game in Philadelphia, especially a team that we're chasing, that's big," Kidd said. "We lose and we go down. We can't worry about Boston. We have to worry about getting wins in our division. It just brings us closer to a team that is in front of us." Iverson scored 37 points but committed nine turnovers for the Sixers, who have lost four of five and are just 1 1/2 games ahead of the Nets for second place in the weak Atlantic Division. Iverson recorded 48 points in a 118-111 win over Milwaukee on Tuesday. "Until our defense gets better, we're going to continue to struggle," Iverson said of the Sixers, who fell 2 1/2 games behind the division-leading Boston Celtics. "We better be able to stop people. It's as simple as that. When guys are going at you offensively, you've got to be able to stop them. We couldn't stop them."
