Default Sixers stick to playoff race, beat Denver

76ers top Nuggets 110-99 -- The AP reports: ĎMelo is moving on to New Jersey. Unfortunately for jilted Nets fans, Carmelo Anthony will still bring his Denver Nuggets teammates with him to New Jersey on Monday for the first time since Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov ended the drawn-out trade talks with Denver. Anthony isnít sure what to expect at the gameóbut heís certain of one thing. Heíll have to produce more than 12 points like he did in Denverís 110-99 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night... Andre Iguodala scored 24 points, Thaddeus Young had 21 and Elton Brand 15. The Sixers had six players in double figures and swept the season series against the Nuggets for the first time since 2002-03... Chauncey Billups led the Nuggets with 27 points. He was part of the proposed deal and, while he wants to remain in Denver, credited the Nets for trying to build an instant winner.
