(Sports Network) – The struggling 76ers hit rock bottom Saturday afternoon,
as they fell 101-69 to the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Allen Iverson and Kenny Thomas paced Philadelphia with 23 points apiece.
Thomas also pulled down 12 boards, while Samuel Dalembert collected 11 points
and 10 rebounds for the 76ers.

Philadelphia has dropped four straight and 10 of its last 15 contests. The
76ers have slipped four contests behind New York and Cleveland for seventh
place.

The Heat outscored the 76ers 30-10 in the fourth quarter. Philadelphia
committed 13 turnovers to lead to 15 Miami points.

losing campaign since the 1997-98 season.

The 76ers have a day off to lick their wounds before returning home to face
the Dallas Mavericks at the Wachovia Center.
