76ers lose to FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona outplayed Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers in the second half to win 109-104 on Thursday, only the third time an international club has beaten an NBA team since 1988.
The Sixers have been in Barcelona since Sept. 29 for training camp and are one of four NBA teams taking part in the league's preseason in Europe. The exhibition game was the 76ers' opener in the NBA Europe Live tour.
Samuel Dalembert led Philadelphia with 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting, but the 76ers struggled from the foul line, hitting only 26 of 48 attempts. Iverson was 3-of-13 from the field and 7-of-13 from the line.
Six Barcelona players scored in double digits, led by Juan Navarro's 18.
The Atlanta Hawks lost to the Soviet Union 132-123 in 1988 in Moscow, and the Toronto Raptors lost to Maccabi Tel Aviv 105-103 last year at Toronto.
