Derrick Coleman's follow-up dunk with two seconds left helped host Philadelphia break a three-game losing streak.
Coleman's basket came seconds after Sam Cassell was given a technical foul by referee Jack Nies for taunting. Cassell had been fouled by Allen Iverson and made two free throws to give the Nets a 110-109 lead.
Meanwhile, the Nets admitted phony crowd noise was used to pump up the volume at the Continental Airlines Arena, but declined comment on how long the practice was in effect.
