NBA Game Summary - Seattle at Philadelphia



(Wednesday, March 7th)

Final Score: Philadelphia 92, Seattle 89

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Andre Iguodala notched his third triple- double of the season with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 92-89 win over the Seattle SuperSonics.

Andre Miller finished with 17 points, and Sam Dalembert pulled down 20 boards for the Sixers, who won their season-high fifth straight game.

Ray Allen scored 29 points, but shot 3-of-13 from behind the arc, including two misses in the last five seconds of regulation. Damien Wilkins added 18 points and eight boards off the bench for Seattle, which had a three-game winning streak snapped with the loss.

After tying the game at 89 on a layup and drawing a foul, Allen missed a rare free throw that would have put the Sonics on top. Iguodala's 10th assist of the night came on the next possession, when he found Joe Smith, who turned and knocked down a 20-foot jumper to put Philadelphia up 91-89 with 14.4 seconds left.

"We can compete with any team in the league, as long as we come and play and put a solid 48 minutes of basketball together," said Iguodala. "Tonight, we had some moments during the game where we didn't execute the way we wanted to. For us to still pull out a victory is a positive for us."

Allen missed a three on the following possession, and Wilkins missed a fadeaway off of the rebound. Iguodala grabbed possession, but missed one of his free throws with 3.1 ticks left, giving Seattle one last chance to tie, trailing 92-89.

Allen missed another three, though, and the Sixers escaped.

"I was surprised I was so open, I rushed the shot a little bit," said Allen of his last look. "If I could have it back, I would have taken one more second to get my feet set."

Seattle trailed 71-66 entering the fourth quarter.

The Sixers led 33-23 entering the second quarter and maintained a 10-point advantage late into the first half, but seven straight Sonics points pulled Seattle to within 45-42 with two and a half minutes left. Iguodala and Dalembert answered with buckets to push the lead back to seven, though, and the Sixers held a 51-45 lead at the break.
