Andre Iguodala scored 24 points and Andre Miller added 21 as the Sixers welcomed the return of Brand with a 116-110 win—their eighth in nine games— over the New York Knicks on Saturday night.

He entered the game for the first time with 1:26 left in the first quarter… Thaddeus Young added 17 points, Willie Green had 14 and Samuel Dalembert had 10 points and 17 rebounds for the Sixers, who moved back to .500 at 21-21. Philadelphia beat New York for the third straight time, and has won 12 of 14 against the Knicks… Nate Robinson scored 26 points, Tim Thomas added 24 and David Lee had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Knicks, whose three-game winning streak ended.
