|You can't blame Eddie Jordan for this win. He did just about everything humanly possible to give the game away, the Nuggets just simply ran out of gas in their last-ditch effort to take what was rightfully theirs. Sixers 108, Nuggets (minus Melo, Chauncey and Bird Man) 105. Wrap after the jump.|

|The Sixers will bring their left coast trip to end tonight at 8pm in Denver. The Nuggets will represent the third team facing serious injury problems on the trip, with both Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony listed as questionable. A quick preview and a (hopefully) long game thread after the jump.|

|Mike was on hand to see Iverson's return to the Wach last night, his notes after the jump. (Sorry, had to get one image of a sick Iguodala dunk on the blog after this one and couldn't find the reverse on the blocks).|

|It was a charged environment at the Wach for Allen Iverson's return to the Sixers. The crowd seemed to carry the team most of the night, but when all was said and done, this was a very familiar game for Philly. Defense did them in, yet again.|
|The little guy is back. The Wach is sold out. The coach is supposedly going to start the correct lineup (good), but he's letting Iverson decide his own minutes (bad). Willie Green is the gift that keeps on giving and so, so much more. Your preview and game thread after the jump.|
|Though the third quarter saw the Nuggets run all over the Sixers, it was the first that left me steaming. Yes, the first quarter which saw the Sixers outscore Denver 25-13. If not for 5 blown easy opportunities, Philly would've been up 20 early. If not for ice cold shooting, they could've put this game away early. The third was about a run, an injury, foul trouble and Chauncey. Those things happen, you live with them, you overcome them. The mistakes we saw in the first, though. They linger. They turn into losses.|
|I'd love to say I expect the Sixers to bounce back in a huge way tonight against Denver, but I just don't see it happening. That's not to say it's impossible, but Denver is a very, very good team, thanks to one player, Chauncey Billups.|

|Three obvious reasons the Sixers lost this game, 105-101 to the Nuggets. Which one do you like best? 1. Outscored by 30 points from three. (5 threes to 15) 2. Outworked on the boards (41 to 34 overall, 12 to 8 on the offensive glass) 3. Can't hit a free throw (18/30, 60%)|
|In Billups' first 20 games with the Nuggets, they were a scorching 16-4. Over the past five, however, they've taken a bit of a nosedive. While Billups was a huge reason for their great run, his poor play has also been a main ingredient in their recent downturn. Over the past five, he's shooting a paltry 36% from the floor. I wouldn't count on that continuing, though. We'll have a live game thread going in the comments, so stop by if you're watching.|
Latest comment: from AlvinStuckey's not that good, but he's at least better than Willie or Lou, with much room for expansion....
|On a night when Allen Iverson made his return to the Wachovia Center, I don't think I could've written a better script for this game. Iverson got his standing ovation, there were tears in his eyes, he dazzled with a...|
|Today is an important day for the city of Philadelphia, the 76ers and most importantly, Sixers fans. Allen Iverson is making his return to the Wachovia Center, with his 9th place Denver Nuggets in tow. It's his first trip back...|
|I'm assuming every newspaper, Web site and blog out there will have some derivation of the headline I chose for this post after Allen Iverson dropped 38 on the Sixers tonight, leading the Nuggets over Philly 109-96. Iverson really did...|
|Finally, some Sixers news. The Sixers and Nuggets pulled off another deal today. Heading to Denver: Steven Hunter and Bobby Jones, heading to Philly: Reggie Evans and the rights to Ricky Sanchez.There are so many different ways you can judge...|
