NEWARK, N.J. -- Stephen Graham hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer and the New Jersey Nets rallied from a seven-point deficit in the final 15 seconds to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers 90-89 on Saturday in a preseason game.

Anthony Morrow cut the 76ers' 88-81 lead to four points with a 3-pointer with just under 13 seconds to play, then the Nets took advantage of poor free throw shooting by Philadelphia to get the improbable win.

Jrue Holiday missed two free throws with 12 seconds to play to keep the Nets alive and Jordan Farmar nailed a turnaround 3-pointer from the left corner with 9.0 seconds to go to cut the lead to 88-87.

Andres Nocioni hit the first of two free throws with 7.9 seconds to go but missed the second.

With no timeouts remaining, Devin Harris rushed the ball upcourt and found a wide-open Graham for a high-arcing 3-pointer that hit nothing but net.

The win was the second for the Nets (2-1) over Philadelphia (0-3) under new coach Doug Collins.

Brook Lopez led the Nets with 23 points. Farmar and Travis Outlaw had 15 apiece and Morrow 14.

Andre Iguodala, who spent the final minutes on the bench, had 20 points to lead the 76ers, who until the three late 3-pointers had held New Jersey to four points in the final six minutes.

Thaddeus Young added 16 points, Williams had 13 of his 15 in the second half and rookie Evan Turner added 14 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the 76ers, who nearly won despite shooting 35.4 percent from the field.

Philadelphia seemed to take control when Iguodala set up a breakaway layup by Holiday and then scored on another breakaway for an 80-77 lead with 5:21 to play.

Iguodala stretched the lead to five points with a jumper with 4:25 to play.
