The Sixers came inches away from snapping their losing skid Friday night, but fell to the Knicks 93-92 in heartbreaking fashion.

Down 91-74 with 5:14 left in the game, Philadelphia went on a 16-1 run to make it a two-point game with 32 seconds left. Michael Carter-Williams had a chance to tie the game with under five seconds left on the clock, but his contested attempt rimmed out, and a Thaddeus Young putback at the buzzer wasn’t enough.

Carter-Williams finished with 22 points (10/21 FG), 13 rebounds, and nine assists, one helper shy of his third triple-double this season. Thaddeus Young contributed 21 points, nine of which came in the fourth quarter, and Henry Sims had 16 points and 13 rebounds (eight offensive). 

The Sixers begin a three-game road swing Saturday at 8pm against the Bulls in Chicago. 

Note: With six minutes left in the fourth quarter, Tony Wroten stepped on Iman Shumpert's foot during a drive to the basket, spraining his right ankle. According to head coach Brett Brown, he will not travel with the Sixers on their trip to Chicago to play the Bulls Saturday night.
