PHILADELPHIA(AP) Rodney Stuckey scored 27 points and hit the winner with 8.7 seconds left to lead the Detroit Pistons to a 90-86 win over Philadelphia on Wednesday night, the 76ers’ 11th straight loss. Allen Iverson scored 11 points in his second game with the Sixers. He hit the tying jumper with 1:06 left that made it 86-all. Stuckey had the ball stripped by Andre Iguodala, but he grabbed the loose ball and tossed it in for the go-ahead basket with 1 second left on the shot clock. Iguodala went for the win, but his 3-point attempt was no good. He scored 18 points. Iverson is 0-5 this season – three losses with Memphis; two with the 76ers. Iverson missed seven of 10 shots from the floor and had three assists. The Pistons won without their top three stars. Guard Ben Gordon sat out with a sprained left ankle, and they had been playing without Richard Hamilton (ankle) and Tayshaun Prince (back).
So much for Iverson being the Answer. A.I. has 22 points in 2 games so for those people who thought we were getting back the same old Iverson I just want you to realize that the old A.I. used to average 22 points in the first 3 quarters of a game. I love the guy but its clear now that the only reason they brought him back was to put people in the seats. When your losing to the Pistons and they don’t have Ben Gordon, Rip Hamilton, or Tayshaun Prince your teams not going anywhere. Now granite the sixers have their fair share of inuries but lets be honest when were at full strength and the Pistons are at full strength they’d still run us off the court. I love Iverson, but I’m not going to be 100% sold on this move until the sixers start winning some games.
