Last night at Wachovia Center:


Wizards guard Antonio Daniels could only shake his head at the news of Allen Iverson’s trade request.

“It’s a business,” he said. “The one thing you find out in this league is that organizations are going to do what’s best for organizations in this league. As much as this league promotes individualism, organizations always look out for their own interest. They are simply not going to do what’s best for the individual.”

In a television interview during halftime of last night’s game, Ed Snyder — chairman of Comcast-Spectacor, which owns the 76ers — said Iverson, will probably never play for the team again. Iverson did not dress last night because of an injury, the 76ers said. But Iverson’s agent released a statement before the game saying Iverson was healthy.


“Every day I’m starting to feel more comfortable. My shots are coming and I’m feeling more comfortable in the offense.”

— Wizards guard DeShawn Stevenson, who has scored at least 11 points in his last five games. Last night, he scored 17.


Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas ended both the first and second quarters with buzzer-beating 3-pointers. He ended the first by making a 38-footer and hit a 28-footer at the end of the second.
