The Philadelphia 76ers will be at Pepsi Center to take on the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets have shown signs of being both a good and bad team this season, currently holding a 14-16 record. Entering with a record of 9-21, the 76ers are still looking for answers. Their season hasn't gotten any easier, as they have lost eight of their last 10 games. This game will begin at 9:00 pm EST and CSN-PHI and Altitude will be providing coverage of the contest.
After their disappointing 97-94 loss to the Heat, the Nuggets are looking to avoid a repeat performance. Ty Lawson was the team's high scorer as he gave a respectable performance, scoring 26 points. Meanwhile, the 76ers are coming off a win over the Lakers, 111-104. Thaddeus Young was the team's top scorer, posting 25 points. This will be the second matchup of the season between these two teams, with the Nuggets taking the first game, 103-92. Jordan Hamilton was a top performer in the victory with 13 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, and 3 3PM.
The ineffective offense of the 76ers (26th in the league with an offensive efficiency of 97.9) will attempt to infiltrate the stingy defense of the Nuggets (fifth in the NBA with a defensive efficiency of 110.4). The matchup on that end of the floor seems to lean toward Denver.
