    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jamal Crawford hit a 21-foot jumper from the top of the key with 1.3 seconds left to give the New York Knicks a 102-100 exhibition victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.

    The 76ers' Kyle Korver missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer.

    Crawford scored 21 points, including 18 in the second half, while Eddy Curry had 25 points and 10 rebounds.

    The Knicks improved to 2-0 in the preseason under new coach Isiah Thomas. They opened exhibition play Friday night at home with a win over New Jersey.

    Korver scored 17 of his 24 points in the second half. Andre Iguodala added 21 points for Philadelphia (1-1--, which returned late Thursday afternoon from a 13-day, 8,900-mile preseason trip to Europe. Allen Iverson played only 24 minutes for the Sixers, scoring 12 points and finishing with eight assists.

    Philadelphia took a 100-97 lead on a jumper by Korver with 51 seconds remaining. But Crawford completed a three-point play to tie the score at 100 with 46 seconds remaining.

    After Philadelphia turned the ball over on an offensive foul with 14 seconds to play, New York ran the clock down until Crawford hit the winner.

    Samuel Dalembert (hamstring) and Chris Webber (flu) didn't play for Philadelphia.

    Steve Francis (right knee), Jared Jeffries (left wrist), Jerome James (right foot), Malik Rose (right hamstring) sat out for New York.
