PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Furkan Korkmaz made a 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left and the Philadelphia 76ers rallied for their fifth straight victory to start the season, 129-128 over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night.

Anfernee Simons made a corner 3-pointer with 2.2 seconds left to put Portland in front, but the Sixers got the ball back after a timeout to set up Korkmaz's falling-down, 24-footer for the win - without suspended center Joel Embiid. Philadelphia is the last undefeated team in the NBA with its first 5-0 start since 2000-01.

Embiid served the first of a two-game suspension for an altercation with Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns during the 76ers' 117-95 home victory Wednesday night.

Al Horford added 25 points for Philadelphia.

Damian Lillard led Portland with 33 points, hitting eight of Portland's 19 3-pointers.
