Knicks rally late, grab 2-0 series lead over 76ers

76ers, Knicks

Donte DiVincenzo hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 13.1 seconds left Monday night for the host New York Knicks, who scored the final eight points to stun the Philadelphia 76ers 104-101 and take a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Thursday night in Philadelphia.

The 76ers overcame an eight-point deficit by mounting a 19-6 run that ended with Kyle Lowry splitting a pair of free throws with 47.3 seconds left for a 101-96 lead. Jalen Brunson, who missed his first five 3-pointers, got a shooter’s roll on a corner 3-pointer with 27.4 seconds left.

Josh Hart stole the in-bounds pass from Tyrese Maxey and dished to DiVincenzo, who missed a 3-pointer. Isaiah Hartenstein pulled down the rebound and kicked the ball back out to DiVincenzo, who drained a 3-pointer from the top of the key.

Following a 76ers timeout, Maxey’s layup was blocked by Hartenstein. OG Anunoby was fouled and drained a pair of free throws. The 76ers, who had no timeouts left, raced up the court before Maxey dished to Joel Embiid, who missed a 3-pointer as time expired.

Hart (21 points, 15 rebounds) had a double-double for the Knicks while Brunson finished with 24 points, eight rebounds and six assists. DiVincenzo had 19 points while Hartenstein (14 points) and Anunoby (10 points) also reached double figures.

Maxey, who was questionable with an illness, came within one rebound of a triple-double (35 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds). He had the first nine points of the game for the 76ers — who opened a 10-point lead six times in the first half — and scored 11 points in the fourth quarter.

Embiid, who was questionable with a chronic left knee injury, had 34 points and 10 rebounds. The Knicks outscored the 76ers 11-7 during the final four minutes of the third while Embiid was on the sidelines icing his knees.
