Nuggets vs 76ers coverage

  • I'm still reeling from the collapse against the Grizzlies, but today's game presents another opportunity to produce a solid win.
  • The Nuggets have won 4 straight, including three straight road games. However; their road record is still a poor 8-13.
  • Sixers Playoff update: Tied with Charlotte for the 7th seed, a half a game ahead of the Bucks for the 9th seed, and 5 games back of the Knicks for the 6th seed.
  • The Birdman is the only Nuggets injury to report.
  • Over the last 10 games Evan Turner is averaging 9.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 0.6 steals, and a 3:1 assist-to-turnover ratio in 24+ minutes. His shooting percentages 47/40/92 during that time. Woo!
  • The Pro Bowl airs during this game.
  • Prediction: Nuggets by 9
Go Sixers!
