Tonight against the Atlanta Hawks, 76ers coach Doug Collins will start Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks, Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand, and Spencer Hawes. For the first time in about three weeks, that lineup will not include rookie Evan Turner, who moves to the bench.
Before tonight's game, Collins expressed that the move isn't a demotion for Turner, only an attempt to get the rookie back into a comfort zone, and back doing the things he's good at doing. Collins reminded that Turner was most effective during the preseason when playing with Lou Williams and with the second unit and less effective when playing with Andre Iguodala and with the first unit.
