Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- Just when it looked like the Philadelphia 76ers were going to steal the game, the Denver Nuggets took it right back.

Nick Van Exel scored the only six points over the final 64 seconds to give the Nuggets a 105-98 victory over the 76ers, who suffered just their third loss of the season.

"It was an awful nice win," Nuggets coach Dan Issel said. "They are the team with the best record in the league. ... I don't think it was our best game, but it was our best win."

Philadelphia had ran off eight points in 48 seconds to come within one, after Denver had seemed to be in control most of the second half.

Raef LaFrentz had 25 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks for the Nuggets, who became the first team to score 100 points against the Sixers this season.

Antonio McDyess scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, which was his worst performance in three games. He had averaged 38.5 points over his last two.

"They concentrated on Antonio," Issel said. "When a guy scores 77 points in two games, you better concentrate on him. We had to have other people step up tonight and Raef and Voshon stepped up big time."

Voshon Lenard contributed 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Nuggets, who have won three of their last four, also defeating Minnesota and Seattle. Denver is 8-2 at the Pepsi Center and 2-5 away from it.

"I've been thinking about the last three games we played for the last two weeks. That's how big these games were," said Van Exel, who finished with 17 points and 10 assists for his fifth double-double of the season. "We expect to win at home, but until we win on the road, this is just another game. We have to pick up the intensity on the road."

Allen Iverson scored 37 points, Theo Ratliff had 14 and Toni Kukoc 12 for Philadelphia, which is 0-2 at the Pepsi Center and has lost three straight to Denver overall. The Sixers have not won in Denver since February 2, 1998.

The Sixers seemed ready to grab the game with their late explosion, after Van Exel had given Denver a 99-90 lead with 3:42 left.

Iverson slashed for a layup and was fouled with 2:32 to go. He connverted the three-point play and Ratliff scored with 2:08 left, bringing Philadelphia within 99-95.

George Lynch stole the ensuing inbounds pass and dunked, cutting the lead to two points with 2:04 to go.

EkSnow then tipped the ball away from Lenard and Iverson was fouled but he hit just 1-of-2, leaving the Sixers one point short with 1:44 left.

That was where the Sixers ran out of gas, though.

After McDyess missed a turnaround in the post, Iverson missed a fastbreak layup. Van Exel then connected on a finger roll with 1:04 left.

"When the game's on the line, I don't want the ball in anyone's hands but Nick's and he made some key plays down the stretch," Issel said.

Lynch missed a 3-pointer and after McDyess missed another shot for the Nuggets, Sixers guard Aaron McKey could not connect on a 3-pointer but Lynch was fouled on the rebound. He missed both free throws, though.

Van Exel hit four free throws in the final 10 seconds, nailing down the victory.

"We made a great run and we had our chances," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "I thought they defended us really well. They forced us into turnovers and into taking quick shots. I thought they played great. They were really well prepared.

The Sixers slipped to 7-3 on the road this season. They have split the first two games of their five-game road trip.

"We were right there at the end," Ratliff said. "They did a great job and made a lot of big plays and were shooting well."

Iverson scored 23 points in the first half, hitting 8-of-13 from the field and grabbing four rebounds to help the Sixers forge a 54-54 tie at the break.

The two teams had to vacate the Pepsi Center briefly before the game because off a pulled fire alarm switch in the building. But the start was not delayed.
