76ers vs. Nuggets final score: Nuggets pick up 14th straight victory, 101-100

USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Nuggets iced the game at the free throw line and came away with their 14th straight victory.

The Denver Nuggets keep their win streak rolling with their 14th straight victory, picking up a tight 101-100 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Corey Brewer had a game-high 29 points off the bench, making three straight free throw attempts in the final seconds to give the Nuggets just enough to inch by the Sixers. Brewer also made five of his six three-point field goal attempts. As a whole, Denver shot 63 percent from beyond the arc, going 7-for-11.

With seven seconds left in the game and an opportunity to push Philadelphia's lead to four points, Evan Turner missed two-straight free throw attempts prior to Brewer putting the game away for Denver.

With Ty Lawson out dealing with a heel injury, Andre Miller stepped in as starting point guard and scored 21 points while also dishing out eight assists.

Jrue Holiday had a monstrous game for Philadelphia, but it wasn't enough. With Holiday running the offense fluidly, the 76ers were shooting a scalding 55 percent from the field, but still came up short. Holiday scored 18 points while also dishing out a game-high 15 assists. Damien Wilkins had a team-high 24 points for the Sixers on 10-of-14 shooting.

The Nuggets next play the Sacramento Kings Saturday. The Sixers completed their back-to-back, losing both games, and will be back in action Sunday at Sacramento.
