PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Allen Iverson was held to a season-low 15 points on 5-of-19 shooting Monday as Philadelphia had one of its worst games while losing, 74-66, to Houston.
Iverson entered the game averaging a league-leading 29.7 points per game but struggled against Houston's physical defense. Philadelphia posted its lowest point total since managing just 57 against the Miami Heat on Feb. 21, 1996 -- the year before they drafted Iverson.
Houston took control in the second quarter, when it made 12-of-19 shots, and never relinquished control. Philadelphia struggled to stay within striking distance as it made just 9-of-37 shots in the second half.
Marc Jackson scored 12 points on 4-of-13 shooting and Aaron McKie had 10 points for Philadelphia.
