The Sixers were playing without injured stars Allen Iverson
(knee) and Chris Webber (quad strain), as well as starting center
Samuel Dalembert (quad strain) and veterans Kevin Ollie and Michael
Bradley (knee injuries).
The Nets trailed 88-82 with 2:44 left in the fourth quarter
before going on an 11-3 run to close out the game. Vince Carter
scored seven of his 21 points during that stretch.
John Salmons led the 76ers with 25 points. He hit two free
throws to tie the game at 91 before Jefferson caught a pretty pass
from Carter and slammed home the game-winner with 21.2 left.
