PHILADELPHIA, March 25 (Ticker) -- Chris Webber had his best game with the Philadelphia 76ers. Allen Iverson made sure it was not wasted.

Iverson, who scored 36 points, nailed a go-ahead jumper with 2.4 seconds left as the 76ers posted their fourth win in five games, a 103-101 triumph over the Toronto Raptors.

"I'll take it," said Iverson, who hit his third career game-winning jumper - all this season. "I wish that it didn't come down to that, but I'll take it any way we can get it."

Webber, who largely had struggled since being acquired from Sacramento on February 23, scored 32 points on 15-of-25 shooting for the Sixers, who moved two games in front of idle Orlando for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

"It felt very comfortable today, the minutes (40) felt really good," Webber said. "It just felt normal. I'm happy for the win mostly, because this effort would have meant nothing. I knew that it was going to come back to me. I just really felt comfortable, even if the shots didn't fall tonight."

The last time two Sixers scored 30 or more points in the same game was on April 1, 1998, when Iverson and Derrick Coleman each had 30 vs. Washington.

"That's how you draw it up," Iverson said. "I know that's how (Sixers GM) Billy King was thinking - 'If we can get these guys to co-exist, it would be big for us.' It's been six or seven years since two guys hit 30 points in the same game with this uniform on. I feel good mainly for Chris. With all of his struggles, his main concern was us."

"It feels good to play with (Iverson)," Webber said. "We already have the trust out there, but now you see the results of it. You know what happened and you feel comfortable going back to it. It's almost like we're in training camp. Coach has changed things for me so I can get used to playing their way. I thought that it would be quicker, but as long as it clicks before the playoffs, we'll be all right."

Sixers coach Jim O'Brien is optimistic that better things are ahead for Webber and Iverson.

"If they play more and more together, they will feed off of one another," he said. "I thought Chris' passes were great. Just a real solid performance when you can match these guys up on one side of the court, either passing or getting handoffs and pick-and-rolls. Good things will continue to happen. I thought it was a spectacular game by both of those guys."

After Toronto guard Rafer Alston tied the game, 101-101, on a 3-pointer with 1:29 left, each team had two empty possessions, including a pair of missed jumpers by Raptors swingman Jalen Rose - Webber's close friend and "Fab Five" teammate at Michigan.

"I picked a horrible time to have my worst game of the year," said Rose, who scored eight points on just 2-of-16 shooting. "I didn't step up when the team needed me to. I felt like our guys played hard. If we got the production that I'm capable of giving, that would have given us a chance to win. That's the reason why we lost."

After Sixers rookie Andre Iguodala grabbed Rose's misfired jumper with 25 seconds left, Iverson worked the clock down, then swished a jumper from about two feet beyond the foul line over Alston.

"Coach is always telling me to drive to the basket. If you don't get the basket, maybe you'll get a foul called," Iverson said. "I had thought about that, but I had been throwing the ball away and I didn't want to chance that at that point of the game.

"If (Alston) got up on me and played me aggressively, then I wouldn't have had any choice but to go in there. He didn't play it that way. He backed up off me and I guess he dared me to take the shot. I knew it was good when I let it go."

The Raptors called timeout, then inbounded the ball to Rose. Getting it on the right side, he dribbled to his left and launched a jumper that bounced off the rim as time expired.

"Donyell (Marshall) did a good job of getting me the ball on the move," Rose said. "Just like a lot of my other shots, it didn't go in. This loss is on Jalen. I blame Jalen Rose for this one."

Marshall - who scored a career-high 38 points and tied an NBA record with 12 3-pointers in a win over Philadelphia on March 13 - had 26 points and nailed 7-of-12 shots from the arc in this one. Mostly guarded by Webber, Chris Bosh added 24 points and 22 rebounds and Alston chipped in 18 and 10 assists for the Raptors, who have lost four of five.

The Sixers opened a 94-87 edge on a jumper by Webber with 7:20 remaining, but the Raptors tied it at 98-98 on a layup by Rose off a steal with 2:33 remaining. Philadelphia scored the next three points on a technical free throw by Iverson and a jumper by Webber before Alston tied it from the arc.
