76ers top Nuggets 110-99

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Andre Iguodala scored 24 points and Thaddeus Young had 21 to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 110-99 win over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night.

Elton Brand scored 15 points and was one of six players in double figures for the Sixers, who swept the season series against the Nuggets for the first time since 2002-03.

Carmelo Anthony was a woeful 3 of 12 for 12 points. Anthony and the Nuggets play Monday at New Jersey for the first time since Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov ended the drawn-out trade talks with Denver.

Coach George Karl expects a playoff atmosphere for Anthony's arrival. He's also surely expecting more out of Anthony.

Chauncey Billups led the Nuggets with 27 points.
