Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Given some of the adversity facing the Philadelphia 76ers, facing the Washington Wizards was a much easier task. Playing without injured stars Allen Iverson and Chris Webber, the 76ers rallied from a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit for a 112-106 victory over the Wizards, who have lost five straight games. It was a total team effort by the Sixers, who had five players with at least 17 points and withstood a career-high 44 points from Gilbert Arenas, who led the Wizards back from a 21-point first-half deficit but faltered down the stretch. "We did everything that you need to do defensively to win the game against a good team," Philadelphia coach Jim O'Brien said. "Everything we needed to do, we did down the stretch." For the first time this season, Philadelphia (39-37) has won four straight games and is two games over .500. Neither of those seemed possible early in the fourth quarter, when a 3-pointer by Arenas capped a 13-0 burst that gave Washington a 93-80 lead. "We're two games over .500, isn't that wonderful?" O'Brien said with a smile. "All these firsts." On the verge of being blown out, the Sixers responded with 12 straight points as Marc Jackson and rookie Andre Iguodala - who each scored 20 points - both had a pair of baskets. "It would have been easy to fold and have an excuse that Allen and Chris are not here," Jackson said. "But we have so much fight as a team and so much pride - that Philadelphia pride. That's what keeps us ready." The 76ers finally regained the lead at 100-99 with 3:28 left on a basket by Samuel Dalembert, who scored 18 points. Arenas made two free throws, but Jackson answered with a follow shot to trigger a decisive 8-0 surge. Jackson sank two free throws and Dalembert swatted a drive by Larry Hughes, leading to Willie Green's layup at the 1:46 mark. With less than a minute left, Green stripped Arenas and set up Dalembert for a dunk and a 108-101 lead. Green, who had not played in the last three games, started for Iverson and collected 20 points, nine assists and three steals. "It shows Willie's mentality, his mental toughness," Jackson said. "After what he's been through this year, how many first- or second-year players can you honestly admit that that has happened to and to be successful when the time comes? You really need to sit down and think about that. That's incredible." Teammate Kyle Korver was even more impressed. "Unbelievable," he said. "It's not that he just sits, sits, sits, like you're saying, but he doesn't complain. He's always one of the first guys to practice and one of the last guys to leave. He keeps on working on his game. There are a lot of guys in this league who are sitting, but not a lot of guys in this league who are working as hard as he is. It's just amazing to watch him. "I've never heard him say one negative thing about anybody or any situation, not one time in two years. That doesn't happen very often in this league. In this league, there are a lot of egos and a lot of guys who are just worried about them, but Willie is a true team player." Philadelphia improved to just 2-5 without Iverson, the NBA's leading scorer who sat out with a thumb injury. Webber missed his fifth straight game with a shoulder strain but Rodney Rogers filled in admirably with 17 points. He scored 15 in the first half, when Philadelphia led by 21 points before settling for a 64-52 lead. "We've got guys missing," Korver said. "We've got guys hurt. We've got guys banged up. We keep on fighting, keep on keeping on." Korver scored 10 points for Philadelphia, which remained tied with Cleveland for seventh place in the Eastern Conference. However, the Sixers moved within two games of first-place Boston in the Atlantic Division and host the Celtics on Tuesday. "We're peaking at the right time," Jackson said. "The chemistry is there at the right time. Chris will be back and hopefully Allen will be back for the next game. Everybody is staying ready as a team. We know what we have to do to perform and win games, and we're willing to do it. We have a lot of tough players here, tough meaning mentally." Hughes had 23 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the Wizards (41-35), who fell one-half game behind Indiana into sixth place in the East. "They played well without Allen Iverson," Hughes said. "They have a lot of guys on that team that are willing to do everything when he is out. They are a defensive team and they pride themselves on getting stops. They also pride themselves on getting into the paint and battling hard. "We have to make better plays down the stretch. Once we get a team down, we need to stay on top of them and do the things that got us to that point." It was the Wizards who were down first. With a flurry of 3-pointers, the Sixers opened a 42-21 lead early in the second period. But Arenas and Hughes scored seven points each in a burst that closed the first half and pulled the Wizards within 64-52 at halftime. Arenas scored 16 points in the third quarter, which ended with Washington holding an 85-80 lead. Jamison added 14 points and matched his career-high with seven assists for the Wizards. "They made plays down the end in those last three minutes," Arenas said. "We've been trying new things - trying to play frantic basketball and trying to stir up our opponents, and they're scoring. That's why our games are so high (scoring). We're trying to trap, and when we do that, people are going to get open shots. It's hard because that's the way we've been playing."
