Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers had the defending NBA champions looking tired and hurt. Iverson had 39 points and 10 assists as the hot-shooting 76ers rode a quick start and sent a message in an easy 107-84 victory over the Detroit Pistons. Rookie Andre Iguodala had a triple-double for Philadelphia, which shot 54 percent (41-of-76) from the field as it took total advantage of depleted Detroit. The Pistons were without injured leading scorer Richard Hamilton and coming off Tuesday's loss in Cleveland. "That's the way basketball goes," Iverson said. "You have to have all five people on the same page every night. Some nights don't go like that. They are the world champions. Everybody would expect those guys to beat us, (but) they just didn't play well tonight." Playing the first 46 minutes, Iverson started at his usual breakneck pace, which the Pistons could not match. The NBA scoring leader made 15-of-26 shots and five steals, falling just shy of his 58th career 40-point game. The Sixers made their first eight shots as they bolted to an 18-6 lead. They held a 31-17 lead after one period and built it to 60-38 at halftime behind 24 points by Iverson, who had as many first-half baskets - 10 - as the Pistons. "We came out a little lame in the first quarter," Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace said. "We were behind the eight-ball for the whole game. We just have to come with that energy from the starting gate." Detroit closed to 66-55 early in the third quarter before Chris Webber made a pair of jumpers to trigger a 12-2 run that gave Philadelphia control for good. Webber scored 19 points as he continues to get more comfortable playing alongside Iverson. "Both of us have to be in a rhythm," Iverson said. "I feel we can only get better. It worked really well tonight, against a good team. I can see it working really well in the future. Nobody wants to live by the jump shot, but when you are giving somebody a wide-open jump shot that he has been making his whole career, then that's the shot we'll take." With the outcome well in hand during a timeout in the fourth quarter, TV microphones picked up Sixers coach Jim O'Brien exhorting his team to pour it on and deliver a message to the Pistons, whom they lost to in the first three meetings of the season and could meet in the first round of the playoffs. "We needed to get a win going away," said O'Brien, whose team never trailed. "You get a lead, and you want to try to get the lead up. Like a horse race, you want to be pulling away at the finish line. That's what our goal was tonight, to put two good halfs together, and be upping the lead as we cross the finish line." Iguodala was re-inserted to get the rebound he needed to complete his first career triple-double. The athletic swingman from Arizona finished with 10 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and four steals. "It was kind of like, 'Finally.' That was something I wanted to do, get a triple-double in the NBA," Iguodala said. "Now I got one, and hopefully I'll get many more, but I won't be trying to. I'll only be going out there and trying to win the game." Teammate Samuel Dalembert kept Iguodala from his triple-double a bit longer than necessary when he pulled down a rebound that was meant for the swingman. Iguodala's 10th rebound came on yet another miss with less than a minute to play. "I was like, 'Sam, what you doing, man?' He didn't know what was going on," Iguodala said. "Rebounding, that's his job, so I can't be too mad at him. He was the only one that didn't know what was going on." The Sixers (33-34) made 10-of-17 3-pointers and collected 15 steals as they moved one game ahead of Orlando for eighth place in the Eastern Conference. With Hamilton missing his second straight game due to a sprained ankle, Detroit shot under 26 percent (10-of-39) in the first half and 38 percent (28-of-74) overall. "Anytime you miss 20 points out of your lineup, it's going to be tough," said Pistons assistant Gar Heard, who fell to 7-6 this season when replacing Larry Brown. "He's one of our spark plugs. When things are not going good, we can always go to him and he'll find a way to score." More alarming, however, was the Pistons' lack of defensive intensity. They were run ragged by Philadelphia's fast break and repeatedly beaten to loose balls. "This team for some reason feels that it can turn it on when it wants to," Heard said. "We're trying to get them out of that mode. We know that when we play the way we're capable of, we can beat anybody in this league. When we play like we played tonight, anybody can beat us."
