“I’m as disappointed as everybody else on my team,” Iverson said. “We wanted to go into the holidays with a win. We’ll have to get this one out of our system and come back to work.”

League leading scorer Allen Iverson broke a Phillips Arena record with 53 points but the one-man show wasn’t enough to pull out a victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Joe Johnson led the Hawks with 24 points and also flirted with a triple double with 9 boards and 8 assists.
