Iverson scored 38 in Sixers win over Bulls

He gave us another great performance. Allen Iverson scored 38 points, Andre Iguodala had 20 and Kyle Korver 19. With this, the Philadelphia 76ers got their third straight win: 108-102 over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.

Philadelphia 28-27 haven't lost since the All-Star break. With Philadelphia playing without starters Chris Webber flu and Samuel Dalembert sprained ankle, Iverson helped make up for their absence with his fourth 30-point game in the last six.

In the other hand, after the Bulls cut the gap to four in the final minute, Iguodala swiped the ball and was fouled on the fast break, sinking two free throws for a 102-96 lead. The Sixers then sealed the win from the line.

Indeed, Shavilk Randolph had eight points and 13 rebounds for the Sixers, who were much more competitive than the last time they played the Bulls in the final game before the All-Star break. The Sixers had their most lopsided loss of the season that night, 117-84.
