PHILADELPHIA -- Playing their fourth game in five nights and missing their leading scorer, the sluggish Nuggets appeared well on their way to their third straight loss. Air Max From China . Then they cracked down on defence and found a hot hand off the bench in Jordan Hamilton. Hamilton hit three straight 3-pointers late in the fourth quarter to help Denver overcome a slow start and the absence of Ty Lawson for a 103-92 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. "Hes been doing that for us. He spaces the floor," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said of Hamilton. "We finally got some movement when our guards started to attack, their defence started to converge and he found the open windows." The Nuggets (12-8) led by four with 4:28 to go before Hamilton, who finished with 13 points, made three 3s in a span of 67 seconds to push Denvers lead to 11. It came as part of a 15-2 run that turned an 86-all tie into a 101-88 lead for the Nuggets, who held the Sixers (7-14) to 15 points in the final quarter. "We found a way to contain them and force them to take some tough shots, and Jordan caught a little fire," said Andre Miller, who had eight points and seven assists. Nate Robinson led the way with 20 points and J.J. Hickson contributed 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Nuggets, who had dropped their previous two contests. Tony Wroten finished with 20 points for the Sixers, who held a four-point lead at the half. Philadelphia has dropped 10 of 12. "The right run at the right time definitely helps," Evan Turner said. "I thought we had control of the game most of the game." Turner, the Sixers top scorer, failed to reach double-digit points for just the second time this year, finishing with six points on 3-for-12 shooting. Denver dominated from beyond the arc, where it hit seven 3-pointers to the Sixers three, and on the boards, where it won the rebounding battle 52-38. Philadelphia shot just 7 for 20 in the final quarter and didnt even attempt a free throw. "They went on that run, and we came back on offence and we got good looks," Thaddeus Young said. "But it seemed like we couldnt knock them down." Both teams played without their starting point guards. Lawson, who left Denvers 106-98 loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday, was sidelined with a left hamstring strain. The fifth-year pro leads the Nuggets in scoring (19.3) and assists (8.0). Sixers rookie Michael Carter-Williams spent his third night in the hospital while recovering from an infection on his right knee and missed his second straight game. "Its being monitored closely, but nothing to get too overly concerned with," Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said before the game. Philadelphia is 1-5 this season without Carter-Williams. The Sixers jumped out of the gate quickly on a 10-2 run. Denver took its first lead 23-22 with 1:53 in the first, but Hollis Thompsons 3-pointer with 47 seconds to go sparked Philadelphia to a 27-25 advantage after 12 minutes. The fifth game of a six-game road swing might have taken its toll on the Nuggets, who have been plagued recently with slow starts and trailed after the first quarter for the fifth straight game. Philadelphia played an unusually clean first half in which it turned the ball over just four times to take a 53-49 lead into intermission. One of the leagues worst in turning over the ball, the 76ers entered averaging 18 giveaways per night. Wroten started in Carter-Williams place and led the way at the half with 14 points on 7-for-12 shooting. As a team, the Sixers shot 50 per cent from the floor before halftime. "Tony Wroten was hot," Hamilton said. "They were getting some good looks at the rim. ... Their reserves came in and scored some shots, and we said, Man, we just gotta crack down on these guys. And thats what we did." NOTES: Lawson did not play for the first time this season. The Nuggets were 8-1 last year without Lawson in the lineup. ... The Sixers outscored the Nuggets 64-42 in the paint. ... The 76ers observed a moment of silence prior to the game for South African leader Nelson Mandela, who died Thursday at 95. ...

Can the Saskatchewan Roughriders be the third consecutive team to play for the Championship in their own stadium, or will the Calgary Stampeders punch a ticket to their second straight Grey Cup? The Stamps won all but one of their contests at home in McMahon Stadium (a Week 13 loss to the Toronto Argonauts). In their three matchups against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Calgary won both of their home games. As challenging as it may seem, can the Riders overcome the odds and pull off the road upset? To win this game on the road Saskatchewan must limit the opportunities of Jon Cornish, the Western Division nominee for the CFLs Most Outstanding Player for the second time in as many years. The Riders need to dominate the ball-control game. They come to battle with a quality ground game of their own with Kory Sheets who comes into the game with as many 100-yard games as Cornish (12) impressive, considering that he played in two less games. Sheets (1598) finished second to Cornish (1813) in regular season rushing yardage. Saskatchewan displayed an efficient running performance last Sunday against the B.C. Lions, with the bulk of the team rushing yards (170) coming from quarterback Darian Durant (97). His effort included scampering for a clutch 35-yard run in the fourth quarter that brought the team into scoring range and converted into a 10-yard touchdown pass to Weston Dressler two plays later. A dual-threat at quarterback, Durant can not only pick apart a defence through the air (4,154 yards) but he also gained 369 yards on 8.8 yards per rush this season. Along with Sheets, who totaled 133 yards on 26 carries in Saskatchewans lone victory over Calgary (Week 2, 36-21), the pairing should be able to chew up yards and keepp the clock moving.

For Cornish, playing in front of the Calgary faithful has been somewhat of a motivating tool in his last three home appearances, gaining a total 447 yards, including a bruising 109 against the Riders in the Week 18s thrilling 29-25 victory. Coming off a weeks rest Can Cornish keep up the solid work?The quarterback situation in Calgary has been somewhat adverse with Kevin Glenn, Bo Levi Mitchell, and Drew Tate all doing quality jobs with their opportunities, but like last seasons playoff run Glenn will start and look to play well enough to keep the young promising pivots Tate and/or Mitchell on the sideline. Calgarys key is to allow Cornish to take the pressure off of the passers, who will be without standout receiver Marquay McDaniel, who they lost to an ankle injury. It is unknown if Stamps star receiver Nik Lewis will play, but he surprised many by returning to practice on Thursday. In the case that the Stamps are without Lewis, Joe West, Brad Sinopoli and Maurice Price could be expected return from injuries, joining Jeff Fuller, the teams late sensation and Jabari Arthur providing the interesting passing platoon a few more able pairs of mitts. If the Argos and Lions have proved anything in 2011 and 2012, its that one shouldnt bet against a team playing before their fans in the Grey Cup. Its the getting there however that will be the biggest challenge for Rider Nation to sit through in 2013. Who is going to win the Western Division Final to get to the 101st Grey Cup?
