Things were a little different for the 76ers last night when they visited the New Orleans Arena to play the Hornets. Plagued by injuries since training camp, the Sixers finally ran into a team that was more banged up than they were. After a first-half struggle, they played a zone defense for their most sustained period of the season in the second half. And in the end, something else was different - a win. Although the Hornets put up a gallant fight with only eight healthy players, the Sixers managed to wear them down and earn a 92-86 victory, breaking a three-game losing streak.

The 76ers acquired Glenn Robinson in the off-season to give them a proven scorer at crunch time when the opposing team concentrates on Allen Iverson. Based on the rubble left over from the embarrassing fourth-quarter collapses that buried the Sixers in their last two games, both at home, it's evident that Robinson's teammates have forgotten that message. Robinson took only three shots in the fourth period, making one, in Saturday's 91-87 loss to Memphis. Two days later, he connected on two of four, accounting for exactly one-half of the Sixers' field goals in the final period, in a 90-81 defeat to Seattle.

The 76ers could very well lose all five games on their post-Christmas road trip. But they can't afford to lose another player. Coming off their third consecutive defeat on the trip, a 106-97 pasting at Utah, the Sixers will meet the Houston Rockets at 10 Philadelphia time tonight at the Toyota Center, meaning the game won't end until after the big ball drops in Times Square. The Sixers have lost five of their last six games and four in a row on the road. They want desperately to get wins on their final two stops - tonight and Saturday afternoon in San Antonio.

Glenn Robinson, who has one bad ankle, is trying to accomplish two tasks. First, the 76ers forward is looking to get the ankle back into shape. Second, he is trying to assume the role of go-to guy in the Sixers' offense with Allen Iverson sidelined by an injured right knee. Neither job will be easy, but the 6-foot-7 Robinson is not backing off from the responsibility. He looks forward to being the Sixers' main scorer until Iverson returns. Robinson, who was acquired from Atlanta in a four-team trade during the off-season, would like to get to 100 percent physically first.

Glenn Robinson wanted the basketball. He made aggressive moves to the basket. He confidently and successfully shot his familiar turnaround jumper. In other words, he played not like the hobbled, tentative player he had appeared to be in his first two games back from an injury, but like the well-known Big Dog the 76ers acquired to be their No. 2 scoring option after Allen Iverson. With Iverson on the sideline, resting his bruised right knee, Robinson rediscovered his scoring touch in the nick of time last night, delivering 19 points to help the Sixers to an 87-76 victory over the Miami Heat in front of 17,430 at the Wachovia Center.

Last night was a strange one at the Wachovia Center, where 17,899 fans sat on their hands for most of the time, trying to figure out when the 76ers were going to make a shot against the Toronto Raptors. The Sixers, already shorthanded with Glenn Robinson and Derrick Coleman sidelined by injuries, lost another big man when Marc Jackson suffered a fractured ring finger on his left hand in the second quarter. Allen Iverson made just 8 of 32 shots from the field but scored 35 points because he sank a career-high 18 free throws.

Not many people saw Allen Iverson make an obscene gesture toward fans late in Tuesday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. But through the magic of the television replay, the NBA saw plenty. The league announced yesterday that it had fined the 76ers star $10,000 for the gesture in the game at Milwaukee, which the Bucks won, 95-91. "I didn't see it; I saw a replay on TV," Sixers coach Randy Ayers said last night before the Sixers' game against the Atlanta Hawks. "As a matter of fact, the staff was talking about it. We didn't see it. " Ayers said that no matter how rough or abusive the crowds get, players should still "try to maintain your focus on what you're trying to do and what you're there for. " "It gets pretty rough, but I think we have to be professionals because we all take the heat," he said.

Glenn Robinson thought he had suffered "just a regular ankle sprain" when Samuel Dalembert crashed into his left leg the day before he was to make his regular-season debut with the 76ers. That was more than three weeks ago. After seeing the ankle get worse in four games and not get better in the eight games he sat out, Robinson is now on the injured list. And frustrated. "I thought it would get better, at least within seven or eight days, like a normal sprain," Robinson said Tuesday night in the Sixers' locker room after the team lost, 95-91, to his former team, the Milwaukee Bucks.

Glenn Robinson couldn't wait to start his 76ers career, since he had to wait until the team's fourth game to do so because of a suspension imposed by the NBA. But a nagging left-ankle sprain, suffered the day before his first game, has sabotaged the early portion of his first season in Philadelphia, and the Sixers decided yesterday to put him on the injured list. Robinson, who will miss a minimum of five games that started with last night's contest against the Milwaukee Bucks, was replaced on the roster by swingman Greg Buckner.

A busy week of basketball has begun for the 76ers, but if they don't knuckle down on defense any better than they did last night, this week will seem more like a month. The Milwaukee Bucks shot 51.4 percent from the field, becoming the second straight opponent to top the 50-percent mark against the Sixers, and came up with key defensive stops in the final minute to defeat the Philadelphians, 95-91, in front of a crowd of 17,639 at the Bradley Center. For the first time in nine games, the Sixers had a full roster of 12 players available.
