The Sixers had a chance to win consecutive games for the first time since Nov. 30, but failed to close out the Grizzlies at home on Monday in a 103-100 loss (see story).

Doug Collins' team is also struggling to get to the foul line. Could it be because the Sixers aren't a physical bunch (see story)?

Meanwhile, here's what happened around the NBA on Monday:

Iguodala's late FT lifts Nuggets
DENVER -- Andre Iguodala made a free throw with 0.4 seconds remaining after forcing a turnover to deny a last-second shot by Indiana, and the Denver Nuggets beat the Pacers 102-101 Monday night.

Iguodala finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, making up for his 5-of-10 shooting from the free throw line with the one at the end along with the defensive play of the game when he stole the ball from Paul George as the Pacers' guard maneuvered for a last-second shot.

Iguoadala signaled for time out with 0.5 seconds remaining. On the inbounds, Andre Miller lobbed a pass toward the basket that Iguodala and George both went after with George making contact and getting called for the foul (see full recap).

Nets continue home dominance
NEW YORK -- Like Brooklyn bullies, the Nets love picking on the little guys.

They beat Orlando four times this season and are 17-0 against teams that were under .500 when they played them.

Now the big boys are coming to Barclays Center.

Deron Williams had 20 points and nine assists, and the Nets beat the Magic 97-77 on Monday night for their eighth straight home victory.

Brook Lopez scored 16 points and Joe Johnson had 13 for the Nets, who tied a franchise record with their 11th victory in January and can break it when they host the NBA champion Miami Heat on Wednesday (see full recap).

Warriors take down Raptors
TORONTO -- This was the lineup the Golden State Warriors have been waiting for. All they need now is to keep everyone healthy.

David Lee had 21 points and 12 rebounds, Stephen Curry scored 17 points before leaving with an injury, and the Warriors beat the Toronto Raptors 114-102 on Monday night.

Andrew Bogut returned from a 38-game absence to score 12 points as the Warriors earned their first victory in four games against Eastern Conference opponents this month.

"He was great," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said of Bogut. "You can tell we're a different basketball team with him on the floor. He's a weapon on the offensive end with his ability to pass, his ability to defend, rebound, block shots and also make plays. It's great to have him," (see full recap).
