Nuggets Vs. 76ers: On The Road Again

The Denver Nuggets face the Philadelphia 76ers this afternoon during their current Eastern time zone road swing. Having won the first three of five games, Denver looks to improve its 8-13 road record against a sub-.500 Sixer squad.

In victories over the Washington Wizards, Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver has averaged a shade over 115 points per game while being led by Carmelo Anthony’s 24.7 and Arron Afflalo’s 19.3 averages.

Combining the three road wins with the last game Denver won at home, the Nuggets currently are riding a four game win streak, which is tied for Denver’s second longest win streak this season. A victory today, and a loss by the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Miami Heat, will pull the Nuggets within one game of the top of the Northwest Division in the Western Conference.

Elton Brand leads the Sixers in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots.

Philly currently holds a two game win streak over the Nuggets, but in neither of those losses did Melo play.
