The Answer leads Sixers in victory over Heat

Proving that he is in great form, Allen Iverson scored 31 points and dished out 13 assists as the Philadelphia 76ers continued their perfect start to the new season with a 107-98 triumph over Miami Heat on Sunday.

Indeed, with Iverson in top gear and the Heat without an injured Shaquille O'Neal, the 76ers pulled away in the third quarter out-scoring the NBA champions 28-16 on their way to a third straight win to remain the Eastern conference's only unbeaten squad.

We must keep in mind that O'Neal missed the game with a bruised left knee he injured during the Heat's win over New Jersey on Friday.

Fortunately, the player will be examined by doctors when the team returns to Miami.

We must mention that Kyle Korver contributed 22 points to the Philadelphia cause while Andre Iguodala chipped in with 20 and Chris Webber helped out with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Fans are happy to see that Antoine Walker paced Miami with 23 points and Dwyane Wade had 20 and 11 assists but the Heat still fell to their second loss in three encounters.
