GAME RECAP

Jerry Stackhouse scored a season-high 32 points and triggered a third-quarter burst as the Philadelphia 76ers kept the Denver Nuggets winless on the road with a 106-91 victory.

Allen Iverson added 24 points and eight assists and Jim Jackson scored a season-high 19 points for the 76ers, who avoided a second straight home loss to a winless road team. On Wednesday, Philadelphia blew an 18-point lead in a loss to Toronto, which had dropped 10 consecutive road games and 17 straight overall.

The Sixers again squandered an early lead but regrouped behind Stackhouse, who shot 12-of-20 from the field. His three-pointer opened the second half and jump-started an 11-0 burst.

"We can't be afraid of the fact that teams are going to make their runs at us," Stackhouse said. "The main thing we have to do is to continue to apply the pressure even when we have the lead. When we apply the pressure early this year, teams have quit on us. We just have to go out with that intensity from the get go. That was one of our main problems last year, having slow first-quarter starts. This year we have turned it around a little bit."

Johnny Newman, Anthony Goldwire and rookie Eric Washington each scored 14 points for the Nuggets, who fell to 0-11 away from home. Denver lost at Philadelphia for the first time since February 18th, 1995.

"We turned the ball over too many times (18)," Newman said. "We didn't execute on defense and we just didn't do a good job. It is frustrating because we needed to get a win on the road. We've been close a few times and this is very disappointing for us. But you have to stay strong, stay together and continue to work."

Stackhouse scored 15 points in the first quarter, including a three-pointer that capped the period and gave Philadelphia a 34-27 lead. The Nuggets battled back and pulled into a 48-48 tie on a layup by Dean Garrett with 3:13 to play in the second quarter, but Stackhouse made a layup and rookie Tim Thomas and Iverson made three-pointers to give the Sixers a 56-50 halftime advantage.

After Stackhouse's three-pointer began the third period, Iverson and Stackhouse each made two free throws. Iverson sank a 14-foot jumper before Jackson dunked off a fast break to cap the run and give the Sixers a 67-50 lead with 9:15 left.

A jump shot by Goldwire completed a 14-4 spurt that drew Denver within 73-67 with 2:08 left in the quarter, but Iverson answered with a three-pointer, Thomas made a jumper and Stackhouse made two free throws to rebuild the margin to 80-67 with 1:54 to go. The Nuggets got no closer than seven points in the final period.

"I was able to come down and my teammates set up screens for me and I was able to get open," Stackhouse said. "I was just trying to set up my teammates. It wasn't anything special tonight. It is just the same plays we have run every other night except this time it came down to execution."

"They got hot," said Nuggets coach Bill Hanzlik, whose team dropped to 2-18 overall. "We made some mistakes and they capitalized on that. When we get big deficits like that, it is real tough for us to come back. We've got to stay within reach and we let it get away from us."

Thomas scored 11 points and Clarence Weatherspoon pulled down 12 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 49 percent (36-of-74) from the field and made 27-of-32 free throws. Philadelphia had made just 68 percent of its foul shots in its last four games.

"To be a good team we need to be consistent in three areas -- rebounding, good team defense and taking care of the ball," Jackson said. "When you do that, you allow yourself the chance to win the game. We made three or four good passes, it wasn't one pass, one shot. We rebounded, we didn't turn the ball over."

Garrett had 13 points and 12 rebounds and 7-4 Priest Lauderdale added 12 points for the Nuggets, who held a 47-39 edge on the boards but shot just 38 percent (29-of-76).
