Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-12-10

Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-12-10The Sixers are trying to get Allen Iverson into game condition as quickly as they can while also incorporating him into the offense ASAP.

Iverson played 38 minutes in his first game back Monday before logging 33 in Wednesday's 90-86 home loss to the Pistons. He said he was sore Tuesday and expected to feel the same way Thursday, though he's doing some extra running and drills to try to boost his conditioning.

Sixers coach Eddie Jordan would like for Iverson to be back to his old self in a hurry after not playing for a month, but realizes it's going to take time.

"You don't speed it up (the process) -- you just let it take its course," Jordan said. "Let's be diligent and patient with the process."

Iverson doesn't have the explosiveness that was a staple of his first 13 NBA seasons, so he's playing more of an overall game and not taking long jumpers.

"I felt a lot better than I did the first game," Iverson said. "I felt good. I'm not going to all of a sudden feel 100 percent -- I understand it's going to be a process."

After the Detroit loss, which was the Sixers' 11th in a row, Jordan actually blamed part of the Sixers' difficulties on the addition of Iverson, saying: "With Allen, we've been disjointed offensively."

PISTONS 90, SIXERS 86: The Sixers made it 11 straight losses two games into a season-long five-game homestand. They were beaten 45-32 on the boards, as well as in bench scoring 26-12. The Sixers (5-17) went 6-for-18 from the three-point line, compared to the Pistons' 1-for-8.
