Nuggets may have Iverson when they meet struggling Kings

Dec 22, 2006 - 3:33 PM Sacramento (10-14) at Denver (14-9) 9:00 pm EST

DENVER (Ticker) - Everything is working against the Sacramento Kings. They may have to fight against poor play, terrible weather and an invigorated superstar all at once.

After a powerful snowstorm swept through Colorado, the Denver Nuggets will host the struggling Kings on Friday - weather permitting.

On Wednesday, a blizzard postponed the game between the Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns. The Denver area received approximately two feet of snow, making it a full-fledged blizzard. The Denver International Airport was closed. It is the first postponement in the NBA since a Memphis-Utah contest on January 7, 2004.

Despite being shorthanded after the fallout from Saturday's brawl in New York, Denver won its last contest - a 117-108 victory over Washington on Monday. However, the Nuggets won't be undermanned for long after acquiring Iverson and forward Ivan McFarlin on Tuesday for guard Andre Miller, forward Joe Smith and two 2007 first-round picks

With the expected arrival of Iverson dependent on weather, Sacramento may be better off if the game isn't played at all. The Kings have lost three straight contests - all at home - and it won't get any easier on Friday.

On Thursday, Antawn Jamison scored 17 of his 33 points in the decisive third quarter and added a season-high 13 rebounds as Washington used a high-powered, balanced attack to post a 126-119 victory over the Kings. Kevin Martin scored a career-high 40 points in the loss.
