PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Allen Iverson tied his career high with 50 points, equaling the most in the NBA this season, as the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Sacramento Kings 119-108 Sunday.

Iverson made a mockery of his showdown with Sacramento’s flashy guard Jason Williams, who had 14 points on 5-for-16 shooting and was not a factor in the outcome or the highlight reel.

Both realms belonged to Iverson, who scored 50 for the first time since he became the first rookie since Wilt Chamberlain to have four straight 40-point games. He had 50 on April 12, 1997 in a 125-118 loss to Cleveland.

Iverson made 20 of a career-high 40 field goal attempts, scoring 12 in the first quarter, 15 in the second, 12 in the third and 11 in the fourth. He also had nine rebounds and six assists as the Sixers improved to 3-10 in his career when he scores 40 or more.

Chris Webber led Sacramento with 32 points and 15 rebounds, fouling out on a dizzying play that produced the two free throws that gave Iverson 50 points. Predrag Stojakovic added 20 points for Sacramento, which concluded the longest road trip in the NBA this season with a 3-5 record.
