"The Denver Nuggets in blue, leaders in the Mid-West Division of NBA's Western Conference, are ten and zero at home but only three and six on the road. Last night against the Seventy-Sixers in Philadelphia during the first period, the Nuggets appeared determined to improve their road record. But Philadelphia leaders in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference matched the Nuggets basket for basket. And when the first period ended - teams were tied at 26, in a see-saw battle before 18,000 spectrum fans. McGinnis number 30 in white, for Philadelphia, had six steals and six assists. Collins, number 20, led the Seventy-Sixers in scoring with 32 points. McGinnis also contributed mightly on offense by scoring 30 points, 14 of them in this third period. At the end of third periods it was Philadelphia leading 88 to 71. And although Denver tried desperately to close the gap, the Nuggets simply could not match Collins' 32 points, McGinnis's 30 and Dr. J's 21, plus outstanding Philadelphia defensive play".
