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.
