Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Just when the Cleveland Cavaliers had momentum on their side, LeBron James got whistled for an ill-advised technical foul. The Philadelphia 76ers scored nine straight points after James' technical with just over five minutes remaining en route to a 98-89 victory over the struggling Cavaliers. Allen Iverson contributed 31 points and nine assists and Chris Webber added 24 and 12 rebounds for the 76ers, who extended the Cavaliers' season-high losing streak to five games. "This was a great win for our team," Sixers coach Jim O'Brien said. "I thought that we got a very solid effort from our group. It was nice to see Chris have a strong game. I thought that he and Allen really worked extremely well together." "It's been like that in the other games, too. It just didn't work out like it did tonight," Iverson said. "After this game, people will be saying, 'Well, maybe they can play together and maybe it was a good trade.' It's one game and we understand that. Tonight, (Webber) started off kind of slow, but he caught a rhythm. I'm happy with what he did tonight." Webber, who had shot just 31 percent (17-of-54) in his first three games with the Sixers, was a little better in this one, making 11-of-28 attempts. "There comes a point where you have to self pride and say, 'I am going to make this work and fit in,'" Webber said. "Allen kept telling me all day, 'Don't worry about us, just get your swagger back.' That's really what I did. It helped me out. I got some drives, I got some passes. Even though I didn't finish a few times, I feel like that is coming." Philadelphia held an 81-73 lead after a pair of free throws by Iverson with 8:50 remaining, but Cleveland pulled within 83-80 on a layup by James with 5:12 to go. While running back on defense, the superstar forward argued that he was fouled on his drive to the hoop, earning a technical from referee Leroy Richardson with 5:05 to play. "It was a close game and I felt that I got fouled," James said. "I didn't say nothing to disrespect the guy (Richardson) at all. I asked him did he see it and he T'd me up." "I thought that the referee was out of line," Cavaliers coach Paul Silas said. "I don't think that (James) cursed at him or anything. Why he gave it to him at that point, I'll never know." Kyle Korver converted the ensuing free throw, starting a 9-0 run. Rookie Andre Iguodala capped the burst with an emphatic dunk that made it 92-80 with 2:33 to play. "It was really big because it helped us to win," Webber said. "The most disappointing thing was that we hadn't won. Those shots at the end were big by everybody. Everybody stepped up." "We got guys on our team that can do a lot of things," said Iverson, who scored his 16,000th career point early in the third quarter. "Like I said before, I play with them every day in practice, so they have earned my trust. I know what they can do on the basketball court." James scored 34 points and fellow All-Star Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 22 - but just four in the second half - for Cleveland, which committed a season-high 27 turnovers. "There's no room for mistakes when you're in a slump," James said. "We lost nine games in a row last year and got out of it. We're not hanging our heads low. I've been through this before already and it's only my second season. I know what tough times are, and we're not going to get down on ourselves. We're just going to keep working." The Sixers scored 27 points off the Cavaliers' turnovers, while Cleveland managed just nine points off 14 Philadelphia giveaways. "Turnovers really killed us," Silas said. "We had 27 turnovers for 27 points, so that's what we have to (work on). It seems as if it's something every night now. Pick-and-roll defense, or rebounding or something. "We just have to band together, stay together and work through this thing. But it's a very difficult time for us right now."
