SACRAMENTO, Calif. - It's over. The 76ers ended their almost three-month-long road losing streak with an offensive explosion, running past the Sacramento Kings, 117-103, on Sunday night at Sleep Train Arena. It was the Sixers' highest-scoring game of the season. Their previous high (109) came in a loss to Oklahoma City. The win is their first on the road since they defeated the Los Angeles Lakers on New Year's Day. The victory ended their string of road losses at 15 games.

Defensive end Elvis Dumervil , 29, chose Baltimore over Denver, agreeing to a five-year deal, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Sunday. Financial numbers were not given. Dumervil, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, had 631/2 sacks in seven seasons in Denver. He agreed to reduce his 2013 salary from $12 million to $8 million, but the paperwork didn't reach the NFL offices in time and the Broncos had to release him. The Chicago Bears agreed to a one-year contract with former Carolina linebacker James Anderson , 29, two days after they signed D.J. Williams , 30, from Denver to replace Brian Urlacher , 34. GOLF: Tiger Woods had to wait one more day to try to reclaim No. 1 in the world.

ELVIS DUMERVIL is putting his seven seasons in Denver and one bizarre fax fiasco behind him after agreeing to a 5-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. So, after a second stinging loss to the Ravens this offseason, the Broncos find themselves in need of a new pass-rushing partner for Von Miller . Broncos football operations chief John Elway issued a statement Sunday saying the Broncos "worked diligently over the last week" to re-sign Dumervil but "are now moving forward without him. " Free agents John Abraham , 34, and Dwight Freeney , 33, visited the Broncos last week and it's expected one of them will sign on soon to replace Dumervil, 29. Dumervil collected 63 1/2 sacks in seven seasons in Denver.

DENVER - Seven months removed from the trade that sent him to Denver, Andre Iguodala still has nothing but good things to say about his former 76ers teammates. "I try to look forward," said Iguodala, who was sent to Denver in the four-team trade that brought injured center Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia. "I don't live with regrets. I still talk to the guys in Philly. But we talk mostly about things outside of basketball. I talk to Jrue [Holiday] about getting married. . . . And I talk with Evan [Turner]

LOS ANGELES - Having lost three times to the Heat during Miami's historic 24-game winning streak, the 76ers will get a chance to play another streaking team on Thursday. Denver (47-22) will play host to the Sixers on Thursday night as it tries to extend its winning streak to 14 games. "I think with all of the hoopla around the Heat, a lot of teams are sleeping on Denver," Sixers forward Thaddeus Young said Wednesday as the team prepared to face the Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles Clippers.

DENVER - When you're in the midst of a winning streak, luck and good fortune is always by your side. When you're mired in a losing one, the inexplicable becomes ordinary. The Nuggets' Corey Brewer, fouled on a desperation three-point shot with 2.1 seconds left, made all three foul shots Thursday night to complete an improbable comeback and steal a 101-100 victory over the 76ers. Brewer's winning free throws were preceded by the Sixers' Evan Turner missing two foul shots with 7.1 seconds left and the foul by Damien Wilkins that put Brewer on the line.

DENVER - The ending was emblematic of just how things have gone for the 76ers. Leading by six points late in the game against the Denver Nuggets, the Sixers let it all slip away and lost a game they had won, falling to the Nuggets, 101-100, Thursday night at the Pepsi Center. With 7.1 seconds left and the Sixers leading, 100-98, Evan Turner missed a pair of free throws, allowing the Nuggets, who called a timeout, one last shot to win the game. Then Damien Wilkins fouled Denver's Corey Brewer as he attempted a three-pointer.

JACK KEROUAC'S stream of consciousness novel On the Road comes to the screen more or less intact as a not-altogether-satisfying road trip into the Beat Era. The "Motorcycle Diaries" team of director Walter Salles and screenwriter Jose Rivera have made an "unfilmmable" book cinematically coherent, capturing the geographical possibilities, the feel and flavor of this blend of biography and Beatnik history. Sam Riley ("Control") is Sal Paradise, the "witness," the teller-of-the-tale - Kerouac by another name.
