76ers vs Denver Nuggets
Through 92 games, the Philadelphia 76ers hold a 51-41 advantage over the Denver Nuggets. This Western Conference team joined the NBA in 1976 after the ABA-NBA merger and was a perennial playoff team throughout the 80s before returning to similar levels of success in the 2000s with Carmelo Anthony and 76ers all-timer Allen Iverson.
