NEW YORK — Evan Turner scored a career-high 34 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 110-106 victory over New York on Wednesday night that snapped a three-game skid and sent the Knicks to a fifth straight loss.

Michael Carter-Williams and Thaddeus Young each added 19 points for the 76ers, who won for just the second time in nine games. James Anderson finished with 18 points.

Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points after a slow start for the Knicks, who were at least competitive after losing the previous four by a combined 75 points.

They are 0-3 on their eight-game homestand that matches a franchise record and comes during what coach Mike Woodson said was pivotal to their season. But it's not helping the Knicks at all, as they started their second half with another loss after going 15-26 through the midpoint of their schedule.
