Recap: New York vs. Philadelphia

Syracuse, NY (Sports Network) - Jason Richardson scored 23 points and was 6- of-12 from 3-point range for Philadelphia, as the 76ers downed the New York Knicks, 98-90, in a preseason game on Monday night.

Thaddeus Young also contributed 22 points on 10-of-12 shooting, while Royal Ivey and Damien Wilkins each poured in 12 a piece for Philadelphia, which won its sixth and final contest of the preseason. Lavoy Allen pulled down a game- high 13 rebounds and scored eight points in the victory.
