Allen Iverson didn't need to drop 50 on the Raptors in Game 7. His teammates more than picked up the scoring slack - and Vince Carter's fallaway jumper at the final horn missed - as the Sixers took the 88-87 win at First Union Center. Philadelphia moves on to the Eastern Conference Finals to face Milwaukee. Iverson dished 16 dimes, mostly to Aaron McKie (22 points), Jumaine Jones (16)and Eric Snow (13).
