Posted: Friday, November 15, 2002

PHILADELPHIA -- Allen Iverson 37 points, including a go-ahead basket in the final minute after coming back from an ankle injury to lead the Philadelphia 76ers over the San Antonio Spurs 99-94 Thursday night.

The Sixers snapped a two-game losing streak and improved to 5-0 at the First Union Center. San Antonio has lost three straight after winning three in a row.

Keith Van Horn had 21 points and nine rebounds, Brian Skinner added 13 points and 11 rebounds and Aaron McKie had 12 points and nine boards for the Sixers.

Wizards 105, Jazz 102

WASHINGTON -- Michael Jordan scored 19 points, including back-to-back layups that gave Washington the lead for good late in the fourth quarter.

The Jazz had a chance to tie on their final possession, but Charles Oakley, playing for the first time since a brief appearance in the season opener, twice knocked the ball out of DeShawn Stevenson's hands at the 3-point arc. Stevenson never got off the shot.

Magic 101, Clippers 80

LOS ANGELES -- NBA scoring leader Tracy McGrady had 35 points, including a spectacular drive-and-float dunk as Orlando took charge in the third quarter.

McGrady went 14-of-26 from the field for Orlando, which snapped a two-game losing streak after a 5-1 start.
