I can't figure out who is worse defensively Amare or big Al Jefferson.

Flip a coin.

Battie is starting, not Voose, per Collins.

Jrue said on sixers.com that he is on Harris.

Yep, just saw that as well link. Good to see.

Really looking forward to this one.

If Turner goes back to his earlier form we can forget Wednesday ever happened.
Hoping that WONT happen is my primary reason for watching this game.

Gdog reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 18:39

I don't. But in the interest of being even remotely optimistic about turner, I like to think that the turner from Wednesday is the REAL turner, not the crap we saw for the 15 games prior to that.

So, when you say you don't, you mean you are. You are judging one game and it makes you hopeful compared to 15 games when you had no hope. So 6.25% has more sway on your future hope than 93.75%?

Laker fans had 'hope' after the lakers beat the heat on sunday - they don't any more

If Turner becomes our p.g. than rather than try to draft a big, pick up a shooter and allow Jrue to play the point in Utah.

Oh I didn't realize that the sixers used Jrue Holiday as an actual point guard?

And I can't be behind any plan that says 'evan turner point guard'

If Turner plays 50 games like Wednesday's that doesn't make Jrue suddenly superfluous, let alone one game.

MCT reply to Brian on Mar 9 at 19:07

Yeah I don't know why people are even suggesting trading Jrue. Missanelli was saying it on his radio show today, let's see if they can consistently play well together before we talk about trading either.

gotta be honest here...i been secretly saying that for a while. jrue has never really impressed me. having said that, i really hope he takes that leap and becomes the all-star that everyone believes he can be.

These guys on NBA TV kind of make me long for the ESPN pregame crew. OK, maybe not. But they're terrible.

And we're off. I guess the Sixers won the tap but I missed it because NBA TV doesn't know when to cut to the fucking game. Eff you.

Jrue is getting taken so often and seemingly easy at times. Like his lateral movement is not as up-on-his-toes as it once was. And probably so with this wear-you-out schedule. Not unexpected. I'd hate to have to play it, even at his age.

Don't like this. My stream is lagging and all I see are turnovers and Jazz buckets

Iguodala can play tenacious one on one defense, particularly if the other team is trying to post him up. But did you see that rebound where Turner and a Jazz player both got your hands on it? Turner wrestled it away from him like "get your hands the f--- off my ball" and I don't think any other Sixer has that attitude.

Jrue needs to play with a scowl. Not that he is, but he dammit needs to. Really.

is it me or does faovrs have his better games vs the sixers then any other team?

He definitely has this year. Of course, it's a little easier to produce when Voose and Hawes are "guarding" you.

Well, we're a bit weak inside... ;-)

Lou's role on this team has been transformed for me now....because Turner is getting different minutes where he can do his thing without worrying about BOSS, Lou can just do his thing - score the ball. And, if they need him to close ONCE IN A WHILE, he needs to keep his head in the game at that 6 minute substitution.

If Hawes comes back and can play even close to what he was doing when he left, can this team DO something this spring?

Jrue!

Guys, I just want to converse and hear opinions sometimes.

But 43 minutes, 12 more than anybody, I mean, come on, are they unleashing him? Or just polishing him up a bit? It's hard to tell because of it's suddenness. It's interesting nonetheless.

Probably a result of no second half burn for Meeks tonight. Can't really argue w/ the results.

With the way his minutes have been yanked around this year, and the way he hasn't played well (that's an awkward turn of phrase) I'm comfortable with the minutes if he's playing well...consider it his reward from collins as such. Let the fans see him play well, get the fans on his side (that seems important to many people here).

If he's playing well, let him build his confidence. He's got young legs.

Let's hope they all remember to set their clocks right so no one is late on Sunday.

totally agree on that Sunday thing.

user-pic
bebopdeluxe reply to eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:36

One of the things that Collins will have to figure out is how to cut Turner's minutes down. He is playing his minutes AND Meeks' minutes.

Collins going out of his way to pump up Lou...as much as he's happy that Turner is playing like this, he has to know that - just as sitting behind Meeks affected Turner's game, Collins has to make sure that Lou not closing as much doesn't affect his contributions - because they need them. If Lou can't make that transition gracefully, they need to trade him.

(not that I am saying Lou would do that...just saying')

So before he wasn't playing him enough, and now he's playing him too much

Sheesh :)

Though I must admit, the whole showcasing for a trade thing wouldn't surprise me. I wonder if some team out there has shown interest but wants to see how he plays with serious minutes...would disappoint me in theory

Great way to sum up your night Rick Kamla - played out. Calling Thad Lou before the shot with Marakovits.

Choosing POTG is gonna be haaaard.

- Dre with a great overall game.
- Ditto for Evan. Man on the boards.
- Jrue went hot in the 4th.
- Lou was very efficient build the lead in the 3rd.
- Young was the man early and provided energy throughout.

Could argue the game was in hand in the 4th when Jrue got hot - if you're looking to eliminate players.

I was just thinking the same thing. Too many TOs for Jrue. Lou got sent to the bench for the close. Down to Dre or Turner for me. What do you guys think?

Anyone else interested to know what the words between Doug and Lou were as they went into the Jazz timeout in the fourth? Didn't seem heated or anything but Lou looked a bit flustered or something.

Thought I was the only one who noticed that exchange.

Phil reply to Brian on Mar 9 at 21:29

It would be easier to say Turner, because Dre had kind of a quiet night compared to Evan. But he was 5-5 for his 10 and had only 1 TO to Evan's 3. Roll a dice...

Ten assists and one turnover is more of an accomplishment than 16/12/6, and the assists came mostly in the guts of the game. However, AI9 does not seem to hold too strong an advantage over Hayward.

Andre just called Turner a "rebound thief" in his post game interview. That's hysterical, he kind of is.

So is it my imagination or did Jrue handle the ball more than Evan when they were on the court tonight? And it still seemed to work just fine. And did Dre even take a shot in the second half? It was like he didn't even need to tonight, he was passing so well.

I missed the first half but there were a few plays where he just stood still. On one play Jrue was doubled and Turner had an open lane to the basket. Instead he just stood in the corner waiting for a pass at the 3 point line. That's just one play I noticed.
