ANOTHER VIEW: Playing on heart, with everything else sore, the 76ers survived a seven-game war of attrition with Toronto, although watching Iverson shoot 14 for 51 in his last two games wouldn't fill an opponent with dread. The Bucks had an even tougher trip, trailing the Hornets three games to two and by 15 points in Game 6 at Charlotte before pulling it out. Karl has never been able to get the Bucks to play much defense, but if he can get two of them to stick to Iverson, they can cut the 76ers down to size.
THE PICK: Going with Iverson's heart and Larry Brown's head. 76ers, 4-3.
