Iguodala leads Sixers over Nuggets

Philadelphia -  Andre Iguodala scored 24 points, dished out seven assists and played torturous defense on Denver's Carmelo Anthony to lead the Sixers pst the Nuggets, 110-99, in front of over 15,000 at Wells Fargo Center.

Thaddeus Young came off the bench to add 21 points and seven rebounds, while Elton Brand chipped in with 15 points for the Sixers, who bounced back from Friday's devastating collapse against Memphis to win for a fourth time in their last five games.

Jodie Meeks and Lou Williams both finished with 12 points and rookie Evan Turner stuffed the stat sheet with 11 points, eight rebounds and six assists for Philadelphia, which turned the ball over just 11 times after giving it away 11 times in the fourth quarter alone against Memphis.

Anthony scored only 12 points on 3-of-12 shooting and matched a season-high by committing six turnovers in the loss. Chauncey Billups poured in a game-best 27 points ,while J.R. Smith scored 23 in a reserve role for the Nuggets, who had a four-game win streak snapped and was swept by the Sixers in the home-and-home season series for the first time since 2002-03.
