NBA Game Summary - New York at Philadelphia



(Wednesday, January 13th)

Final Score: New York 93, Philadelphia 92

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - David Lee had a game-high 24 points and got the game-winning layup to drop with 14.9 seconds left, as the New York Knicks took a 93-92 decision from the 76ers at the Wachovia Center.

Wilson Chandler added 18 points and Al Harrington had 17 points and seven rebounds for New York, which salvaged a win out of its three-game road trip. Jared Jeffries checked in with 15 points and nine boards.

The Knicks had dropped nine straight in Philadelphia, earning a road win against the 76ers for the first time since an overtime triumph on December 17, 2004.

Allen Iverson scored a team-high 16 points with five assists for Philadelphia, which was aiming for its first three-game win streak of the season. Samuel Dalembert brought down a season-high 21 rebounds to pair with 12 points.

"Seems like we did everything right until down the stretch. We were right in the game (and) had every opportunity in the world to win the basketball game -- we just didn't do enough. And that's been the case most of this year," Iverson said.

New York trailed for most of the game but ended the third quarter with a flurry of points to tie the contest at 68. Early in the fourth it was a back- and-forth game until Harrington hit two at the line and followed with a three- pointer for an 80-76 advantage midway through.

Rodney Carney and Marreese Speights answered with back-to-back buckets to even things at 80 and spark a 9-2 stretch the gave the Sixers an 85-82 lead with close to 3 1/2 minutes left.

Carney hit a three a minute later to extend the lead to four, but a three- point play by Chandler and Lee's jumper with 43.9 ticks remaining handed New York a 91-90 lead.

Speights responded with a jumper to put the hosts back in front with 26.9 seconds left, but Lee came back with his game-winning bucket. That left Philadelphia with a chance to tie or win the game on the last possession, but Carney's shot from deep on the right wing was off the mark.

"We got a little lucky that he (Carney) missed a shot at the end but I thought our guys played extremely hard, worked the zone well and David Lee hit some big shots down the stretch," said Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni.

The Knicks got out to a 30-26 lead after 12 minutes of play but a 9-2 Sixers burst to open the second swung momentum the other way. Thaddeus Young finished with the final five points for a 35-32 edge.

The hosts remained in front until Harrington produced six consecutive points to give New York a 42-20 lead with five minutes to go. Philadelphia was quickly back in front, though, courtesy of a Willie Green three, and his three-point play with just under two minutes left stretched the lead to five.

The Knicks scored the final four points of the half to get within 48-47 at the break.

The Sixers continued to hold a slim margin in the third, as Jrue Holiday and Danilo Gallinari traded three-pointers midway through for a 61-57 game.

Elton Brand slammed for two, and Holiday drained another three to run the lead to 66-59 with four minutes remaining. The Knicks ended the frame on a 9-2 spurt, though, tying the game at 68 on a Nate Robinson bucket heading to the fourth.
