76ers Slam Hawks 110-89
Mar. 30, 2003
ATLANTA (AP) _ Allen Iverson had 38 points, nine assists and eight steals as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Atlanta Hawks 110-89 Saturday night.
Iverson finished 17-for-25 from the floor, missing his only 3-point attempt. He hit eight straight midrange jump shots before missing an 18-footer from the left baseline late in the second quarter.
Philadelphia took a 38-26 lead midway through the second quarter on Iverson's 22-footer, and the Sixers maintained a double-digit lead the rest of the way.
Glenn Robinson, who missed an overtime loss Wednesday at Detroit with an inflamed left Achilles heel, led Atlanta with 16 points on 5-for-18 shooting. Robinson committed seven of the Hawks' 17 turnovers.
Philadelphia improved to 18-5 since the All-Star break, while Atlanta lost its third straight.
Derrick Coleman did not play because of a left quadriceps contusion. Kenny Thomas started and finished with 18 points and a game-high 11 rebounds.
Jason Terry's layup with 7:08 left in the third quarter cut the lead to 65-55, but the Hawks never got any closer.
Notes: Coleman, who was injured as he collided with Jermaine O'Neal in the 76ers' 91-85 victory Wednesday at Indiana, had seven points in a 102-98 loss Friday to Golden State. ... Philadelphia also was without reserve forward Brian Skinner, who missed his second straight game because of personal business. Sixers coach Larry Brown refused to give any details about Skinner.
