The Knicks beat the 76ers. Today’s Games – Sports poster

NEW YORK (AP) – Julius Randle had 24 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, Jalen Brunson scored 21 points and the New York Knicks overcame an early 21-point deficit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-97 on Sunday.

Evan Fournier came off the bench to score 17 points for the Knicks, who were playing a night off an overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

“It was great,” Randle said. “I think the biggest difference between last night and tonight, where I thought we could win, was that tonight was our defense.”

Joel Embiid had 31 points for the 76ers, going 18-for-19 from the free throw line, and grabbed 14 rebounds.

Philadelphia had won nine of their previous 10 games. The 76ers also blew a 21-point lead in a 119-109 loss to Orlando on Monday.

“It’s never easy,” Embiid said. “A 20-point lead in the NBA, that’s nothing. Any team can come back and that’s what they did tonight.”

Philadelphia led by as many as 21 points in the first quarter, but the Knicks continued to chip away, cutting the lead to 53-51 at halftime.

Randle’s 3-pointer early in the second half put New York ahead 54-53, its first lead since 2-0.

Philadelphia rallied by eight points and led 79-76 heading into the fourth quarter.
