NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Andre Miller scored 22 points to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 116-109 victory over the New York Knicks in preseason action on Tuesday night.

Andre Iguodala had 18 points while second-year forward Thaddeus Young chipped in 16 for Philadelphia. Free-agent acquisition Elton Brand collected 13 points and 11 rebounds for the 76ers, who shot 51 percent (44-for-87) from the field.

Iguodala made 7-of-14 shots and his two biggest ones spoiled any chances of New York pulling out a victory in its first home game under new coach Mike D'Antoni.

The Knicks had their last lead after Mardy Collins' layup put them ahead 95-94 with nine minutes to play. Philadelphia gradually pulled back in front and Iguodala's dunk with 2:55 left and reverse layup 56 seconds later iced the win.

New York, which will run a lot more under D'Antoni's system, was led by Nate Robinson and Wilson Chandler.

Robinson was 4-of-9 from the arc and scored 21 points and Chandler hit 5-of-6 three-pointers and finished with 20 as the Knicks shot 47 percent (15-of-32) from the arc.

David Lee and Zach Randolph added 17 points apiece for the Knicks, who shot 47 percent (41-of-87).

Stephon Marbury went scoreless in 20 minutes and Eddy Curry scored a point in just 6:21. Marbury did have six assists and two rebounds with no turnovers.
