Throwback Thursday: Allen Iverson's 54 Points vs Vince Carter

Every Thursday, The Sixer Sense will be bringing our viewers a “Throwback Thursday” moment from one of our favorite Sixers’= performances.

Of course we had to start off with the best player to ever don a Philadelphia Sixers uniform, Allen Iverson. His 54 point performance against Vince Carter’s Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semifinals lifted the Sixers to victory and a 1-1 tie in a series the Sixers would go on to win.

The Answer, had everything, scoring 19 straight in the fourth en route to a 97-92 victory. Iverson went 21-39 from the field and 9-9 from the charity stripe. Here is what A.I. had to say after this performance:

“I always feel like the only person who can stop me is myself,” Iverson said. “The first game, I took what they gave me. They gave me wide-open jumpers. I took a lot of quick shots. Guys weren’t in rebounding position.”
