DENVER - In his 60 games as a 76er, Robert Covington has started 40 of them. Sometimes it appears he prefers being the starter, as was the case Tuesday night when he scored a team-high 21 points and made 5-of-6 three pointers in a loss at Sacramento. Last night in Denver, with Jason Richardson back in the starting lineup, Covington went back to the bench. His play didn't lessen a bit, however, as he poured in 25 points to lead the Sixers (18-54) to a 99-85 in over the Denver Nuggets to close out their three game, west coast swing with their lone win and in doing so snapped a 16-game road losing streak.

In respect to the tragedy at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., the Colorado Rockies postponed their baseball game with the Montreal Expos and the Denver Nuggets postponed their NBA game with the Portland Trail Blazers. "Athletic contests hold little meaning after that," Nuggets general manager Dan Issel said of yesterday's shootings, which occurred when two student gunmen walked into the suburban high school and killed 25 people, including themselves. The baseball game will be played when the Expos next visit, Aug. 13 to 15. No new date was set for the Nuggets game.

There is a lot of excitement entering the 76ers season, which begins with Wednesday's game at the Wells Fargo Center against the Denver Nuggets. What there won't be, at least at the start of the season, is a mascot. The Sixers went last year without a mascot. When asked about the status, a team official said: "There is no update at this time. We will not have one on opening night and we haven't named anything. There has been no determination on whether there will be a mascot this season.

Unquestionably, the Allen Iverson experiment produced some scintillating moments for the Denver Nuggets and their fans. But the more Nuggets coach George Karl watches Chauncey Billups run his offense - and watches Iverson lead the Detroit Pistons - it has become clearer that Iverson, well, wasn't the answer. "There are less bad plays, more solid plays," Karl said of the former 76er, who was traded earlier this month. "I think the wasteful, cheap possessions that we used to have 10 to 15 a game, they don't exist very much anymore.

Denver Nuggets coach Bernie Bickerstaff is ready to do whatever the team's owners want him to - even if that means giving up his job as coach. Bickerstaff, who is also the team's president and general manager, said yesterday he also might resign if he believes he is not getting the job done. The Nuggets, 17-25, are 10th in the Western Conference in the race for eight playoff spots. Bickerstaff took over as coach last year when Dan Issel quit in the middle of the season.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations told the Associated Press that Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw has agreed to succeed George Karl as coach of the Denver Nuggets. The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday night because the deal hadn't been officially announced. The Nuggets called a news conference for Tuesday afternoon to introduce their new coach. The Denver Post first announced the agreement with Shaw, and the former Phil Jackson pupil told the newspaper he has been "prepared by the best of the best" for his first NBA head coaching job. Shaw is a former NBA guard and longtime assistant NBA coach who has interviewed about a dozen times for head coaching positions but kept coming up short until Monday.

The Denver Nuggets traded guard/forward Ruben Patterson to the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday for much-traveled forward Joe Smith. Smith has averaged 12.4 points and 7.1 rebounds in 751 career games with the 76ers, Golden State, Minnesota, Detroit and Milwaukee. He averaged 8.6 points and 5.2 rebounds in 44 games for the Bucks last season. Patterson was acquired in a deadline deal with Portland on Feb. 23. He averaged 13.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 26 games with Denver. Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony took part in a two-hour practice in Hong Kong, two days after hyperextending his knee while playing for the U.S. national team in China.

George Karl had been involved with basketball since the seventh grade, so not having it in his life for nearly 2 years left him feeling empty. Now that he's headed back to the NBA, Karl has a greater appreciation for what the game has meant to him. Out of the NBA since the Bucks fired him in 2003, Karl was back in Milwaukee yesterday to take over as coach of the Denver Nuggets. He's expected to be on the bench tonight, making his debut with the Nuggets against his former team.

How much tougher can it get for the hard-luck Denver Nuggets? Carl Herrera hit a 10-foot jumper with 2.5 seconds left last night to lift the visiting San Antonio Spurs to their third straight win, 93-91, over the Nuggets. "It was our 19th option," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said of Herrera's impromptu drive and shot. LaPhonso Ellis, who finished with a career-high 30 points, had a chance to tie the game after being fouled with 0.7 seconds left, but he missed two free throws as the Nuggets fell to an NBA-worst 4-11 at home.

Temple's Mark Macon could be within a day or two of signing a contract with the Denver Nuggets. "I'd say it's around the corner, that it could be that soon," said Gregory Reid, the Detroit attorney who is representing Macon, the No. 8 pick in June's draft. Macon's situation should become clearer now that the Nuggets have signed their first pick (No. 4), Georgetown center Dikembe Mutombo, to a five-year deal believed to include a starting salary of $1.7 million and a total value of $13.5 million.

DENVER - The basketball gods were cruel to the 76ers. How else can you explain how they had a much-needed victory snatched away Wednesday night? Emmanuel Mudiay lost the ball, bent down to pick it up and buried a 35-foot, three-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Denver Nuggets to a 104-103 victory at the Pepsi Center. "That's a tough way to lose," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "I thought T.J. [McConnell] hit it and almost had a steal. Give Mudiay a lot of credit. I thought he had a great game.

Mark Macon made a career out of having big games and even bigger wins at Temple. In his four basketball seasons, Macon led the Owls to three NCAA appearances, including twice in the Elite Eight. Yet it was his final game, which ended in defeat, that Macon is often remembered for the most, when he distinguished himself against one of the NCAA's true heavyweights. Macon, his former coach John Chaney and a number of teammates from Temple's 1991 squad returned Sunday for a 25th anniversary celebration.

When David Stern retires next week, he probably won't have many regrets concerning his 30-year term as NBA commissioner. During his time in office, the league went from near bankruptcy to being one of the most successful operations in professional sports. In 1984, league revenues were just over $100 million annually, and there were teams that had fallen behind on their payrolls and were in danger of being shut down. Last year, the NBA's revenue was $5.5 billion. The first team sold during Stern's term was the Denver Nuggets, who changed hands in 1985 for $20 million.

DENVER - Things were certainly out of whack last night at the Pepsi Center. In the first 15 minutes of play between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets, there was a total of 22 fouls called. For two teams who like to play at a quicker pace, the refs had them playing in mud early on. The Sixers, usually horrendous at covering the three-point shot, limited the Nuggets to just one make in their first eight attempts. Meanwhile, the Sixers drained half of their first 14. Both teams had been struggling recently to score, a big reason why Denver had lost seven in a row. But the Sixers scored a season-high 68 points in the first half, also yielding 56. Strange happenings, indeed.

THOUGH the longest road trip of the season for the 76ers officially started in Milwaukee on Saturday, the heart of it begins tomorrow in Phoenix. After that Milwaukee game, in which the team incurred its 12th road loss in 13 games, some of the players got together the next day for a light practice before having the next 3 days off for Christmas. The whole group was back together last night for a practice in Phoenix as they prepare for the resumption of this road trip, which includes tomorrow's meeting with the Suns and Sunday's game against the Lakers.

KENNETH FARIED brought the energy and the Denver Nuggets rediscovered their toughness in time to stave off elimination last night with a 107-100 win over the visiting Golden State Warriors. The Nuggets slowed down Golden State's guards, jumpstarted their transition game and got under Andrew Bogut's skin in Game 5, jumping out to a 22-point lead before weathering the Warriors' frenetic fourth-quarter rally. Game 6 is tomorrow night in Oakland. Golden State leads the series, 3-2. Andre Iguodala had 25 points and 12 rebounds, Ty Lawson had 19 points and 10 assists and Faried had 13 points and 10 boards.

I DON'T MEAN to be too hard on Andre Iguodala, because there are things to be said for his eight seasons as a 76er. Still, sometimes you just have to tell things as they were. Too much about Iguodala looked too familiar on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The uniform he now wears is that of the Denver Nuggets, but his performance in his first trip back to South Philly since the blockbuster trade that sent him west wasn't distinguishable from the 615 games he played while wearing a Sixers jersey.

THERE SEEMED to be a calmness and easiness to Andre Iguodala Wednesday when he met with the media after the Denver Nuggets' morning shootaround Wednesday. Perhaps it was because he thinks he's in a better place now, as a member of the Nuggets. Or maybe he was just happy realizing he doesn't have to meet with the gathered group of reporters anymore. Whatever the reasoning, it was noticeable. Not long after Iguodala was dealt to Denver in a four-team trade, he knew that his first game as a professional not wearing a 76ers uniform would be against the team that drafted him and employed him for eight seasons.
