Blizzard postpones Suns-Nuggets game

Denver, CO (Sports Network) – Wednesday’s contest between the Phoenix Suns
and the Denver Nuggets was postponed due to a blizzard, dumping as much as
two feet of snow.

No makeup date has yet been announced.

This is the first time the Nuggets have canceled a game since April 20, 1999,
after the shootings at Columbine High School.

The postponement and snowy weather delayed Allen Iverson’s arrival to the Mile
High City. On Tuesday, Iverson was traded from the Sixers to the Nuggets for
guard Andre Miller, forward Joe Smith and a pair of first-round draft picks in
return for the enigmatic superstar as well as seldom-used forward Ivan
McFarlin.

A seven-time All Star and four-time scoring champion, Iverson is expected to
bring an immediate boost to the Nuggets, who will be without star Carmelo
Anthony for the next 14 games due to a suspension stemming from Saturday
night’s brawl at Madison Square Garden.

Iverson’s first game with the Nuggets is expected to be Friday night at home
against Sacramento.

The Suns will have to wait until Friday to try and extend their 15-game
franchise-record winning streak. Phoenix hosts Washington Friday.
