Evan Turns Tide For Sixers

Andre Iguodala had his second triple-double and all everybody want to talk about was Evan Turner.

Turner didn't have his highest scoring game, but it may have been his top all-around effort in Sunday's 125-117 overtime victory over the visiting Golden State Warriors.

Turner had 20 points (9 for 15 shooting), seven rebounds, three assists and was lauded by none other than Iguodala himself for his defense.

Everybody keeps thinking that Turner is about to break out, but he doesn't need to drop 20 a night for that to happen.

He is making better decisions on the court and appears to have more confdience in his jumper. In his last four games, he is shooting 22 for 36 from the field.

Turner just seems more confident and he talked after the game about not worrying about making mistakes, and concentrating on making plays.

If Turner can continue this pace, an already potent bench gives the Sixers a major advantage against most opponents.

Over the past 31 games, the Sixers reserves are averaging 43.5 points.

Thaddeus Young and Lou Williams have been a solid on most night, with Young showing the most recent consistency. Marreese Speights has enjoyed a more expanded role lately, having played 10 or more mintues in seven consecutive games.

With Turner's improvement, the Sixers have a solid nine-man rotation. And it's a major reason why the Sixers (32-30)  have remained so hot, having won 15 of their last 20 games.
