Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:

STEPPING UP Going into the game the Sixers were 5-4 since losing leading scorer Allen Iverson for the season with a broken hand. In Iverson's absence the Sixers have gotten offense from other sources. In particular, point guard Eric Snow, never know for his offense, has stepped it up dramatically. In the games Iverson has missed, Snow has averaged 16.9 points, well above his 11.6 season average.

COLLINS GETTING THE CALL? Wizards coach Doug Collins' son, Chris, a member of the Duke coaching staff, has been contacted by DePaul University about its vacant head coaching job.

NO DC The Sixers were without starting power forward Derrick Coleman. Coleman missed the game with a hyperextended left knee. Also out was guard Speedy Claxton. Claxton missed the game due to a mild concussion suffered last week.
