Monday Game Notes: He's Baaaack

By Elias Sports Bureau

Allen Iverson will debut in his return to the 76ers against the team he was traded to in the 2006-07 season. In return for Iverson, the Nuggets sent the 76ers Andre Miller, Joe Smith and two 2007 first-round draft picks (the 76ers used those picks to select Daequan Cook and Petteri Koponen). Help couldn't come at a better time for the 76ers -- they've lost nine straight and are 2-13 in their past 15.

• Iverson, who is expected to start Monday, and Andre Iguodala started 162 games together for the Sixers from 2004 to 2006, winning as many as they lost (81-81). Iguodala averaged 7.5 field goal attempts and 10.6 points per game starting alongside Iverson. His averages since then: 14.7 attempts and 19.4 points per game. The Nuggets posted a 77-58 (.570) record in the games that Iverson played for them, compared to a 68-31 (.687) mark since trading Iverson to the Pistons in November 2008.
