Andre Miller scored a season-high 28 points off the bench, Nene had 20 points and 14 rebounds as the Denver Nuggets beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-104 in overtime Wednesday night.

Miller scored Denver's last 10 points in regulation and got another big basket in overtime. His jumper put the Nuggets ahead 106-104 with 42.9 seconds left. Miller then made a steal on Jrue Holiday's errant pass to seal the Nuggets' fourth consecutive win.

The Atlantic Division-leading Sixers lost for the first time at home. They had won nine of 10 overall and were 6-0 at the Wells Fargo Center.

Thaddeus Young scored 22 points and Evan Turner added 20 for the Sixers.

The injury-riddled Nuggets had five players score in double digits, including Arron Afflalo's 14 and Ty Lawson's 13.
