PHILADELPHIA, March 11 (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson and Chris Webber appeared to be in synch. The Charlotte Bobcats were totally out of sorts.

Iverson had 25 points, 12 assists and four steals in less than three quarters and worked well with Webber as the Philadelphia 76ers raced to a 112-80 victory over the expansion Bobcats, who have lost five in a row.

In Tuesday's embarrassing home loss to Golden State, fans at the Wachovia Center booed Webber, the star forward who has had trouble acclimating himself with Iverson and the rest of the 76ers since being acquired before last month's trading deadline.

"Lately that has been the big topic, whether Chris Webber and I can work together," Iverson said. "It rarely has anything to do with wins and losses, it's whether me and Chris can co-exist with each other. Tonight, it looked that way. Tomorrow, it might not look that way. In the long run, it will look like we can play with each other and we definitely can."

"Tonight was definitely better when you're blowing somebody out," Webber said. "I want to play good for myself and the team. I think that we're on the right page and I hope that it keeps coming."

In his eighth game with his new team, Webber collected 16 points, eight rebounds and five assists and seemed to have a better feel for the offensive scheme.

"I felt pretty good about going forward," Webber said. "It was fun playing when everybody is involved. It's just fun for me to get everybody involved and make a couple of shots tonight."

However, Webber was not on the floor for the start of Philadelphia's decisive surge early in the second quarter. Led by the speedy Iverson, the 76ers rattled off a 19-2 surge to take control.

"I don't know if everybody's legs felt fresh, but we played like they were fresh," Iverson said. "We played great on defense, and did a good job of moving the ball on offense. Tonight we played the total team game. We didn't leave anything out on the floor."

Iverson had a pair of hoops between a 3-pointer and three-point play by Kyle Korver to make it 31-21 with 8:15 remaining. Webber returned and sank two free throws and a tough running banked by Iverson pushed the margin to 39-22 with 6:31 to play.

"More (plays) came through me," Webber said. "But Allen has to have the ball in his hands. You shouldn't change the plan for success. To be out here and to do stuff, it feels great."

Meanwhile, the Bobcats were without injured point guard Brevin Knight and it showed. They went nearly six minutes without a hoop while committing six turnovers.

Philadelphia led, 57-39, at halftime, and Webber's driving behind-the-back floater made it 67-45 with 7:44 to go in the third quarter, bringing oohs and aahs from the crowd.

"Allen and I laughed before the game about what we could do," Webber said. "It was fun. Throwing a between-the-legs pass to AI felt good. I feel the offense was flowing tonight, and hopefully we can keep it going."

Charlotte got no closer and trailed by as many as 35 points in its worst loss of the season. Philadelphia registered its biggest win.

Korver scored 17 points and Samuel Dalembert added 15 and three blocks for the Sixers (30-32), who snapped a two-game slide.

"After losing two games, we don't care who comes in here," Iverson said. "You just want to take your frustrations out on the other team. It just happened to be the Bobcats. This game makes me feel good, just like we beat a team at the top of the division. We just needed a win."

Rookie Emeka Okafor scored 17 points for the Bobcats, who fell to 0-2 vs. the Sixers this season.

"It's real simple. We ran into a wounded tiger," Bobcats coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "Everybody has been all over the 76ers about the Webber situation. What they really don't understand is that it just doesn't happen overnight. They played well and they played with intensity. They stepped up and showed the critics what they are capable of doing."
