    NEW YORK — Tobias Harris hit a go-ahead 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter, Ben Simmons had 21 points and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the New York Knicks, 90-87, on Saturday night (Sunday, Manila time) for their third straight victory.

    Josh Richardson added 18 points and reserve Furkan Korkmaz scored 17 for the 76ers, who snapped a six-game road losing streak. Their last win away from home was Dec. 23 at Detroit. Philadelphia is 28-16 overall but just 8-14 on the road.

    Marcus Morris Sr. had 20 points and missed a half-court heave at the buzzer for the Knicks, who have lost three straight. Julius Randle had 14 points and 12 rebounds.

    New York rallied late with a 10-2 run and took a 87-86 lead when Morris sank a jumper over Simmons with 31 seconds left in regulation.

    Harris, who made just 5 of 13 shots and finished with 15 points, answered with his fourth 3-pointer of the night on the ensuing possession to put Philadelphia ahead 89-87 with 28 seconds to play.

    New York had a chance to tie, but Philadelphia swarmed Randle on a inbound play and forced the ball out of bounds.

    Korkmaz's free throw with 4.2 seconds left sealed it for the 76ers.

    Simmons had 16 points to help the 76ers build a 52-46 lead heading into the half. He shot 7 for 10 from the field and had couple of dunks in transition that brought the Madison Square Garden crowd to its feet, including a noticeable Philly contingent.
