Toney Douglas scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter, rallying the short-handed New York Knicks to a 92-88 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night.

A rookie guard who was recently elevated to the starting lineup, Douglas scored 13 straight Knicks points down the stretch, helping New York win despite missing starters David Lee and Wilson Chandler.

Danilo Gallinari scored 25 points, and Bill Walker added 15 for the Knicks, who returned from a five-game trip to beat the 76ers for the second time in five days. They won 94-84 in Philadelphia on Monday night after dominating the second half.

Elton Brand scored 19 points, and Andre Iguodala had 17 for the 76ers, who have lost six of seven.
