Turner vs. Wall: Battle of NBA rookies

November 2nd, 2010 admin

Considering how empty the present looks for both teams, Tuesday
night’s game between the Washington Wizards and

76ers becomes a comparison of the
future.

More specifically, a matchup of the No. 1 selection in the 2010
NBA draft, Wizards point guard John Wall, vs. the No. 2 selection
in that same draft,

Sixers guard Evan Turner.

Neither team has won a game, combining for five losses, but both
rookies have demonstrated that there is some reason for hope.

NOTES, QUOTES

November 2nd, 2010 admin

–Sixers coach Doug Collins changed his starting lineup after two games by inserting Andres Nocioni at small forward in Jason Kapono’s spot. Nocioni had six points and seven rebounds in 32 minutes against Indiana.

“He has to start for us,” Collins said. “‘Noce’ is going to give us more of a physical presence out there. It’s nothing Kapono did or did not do. We just need more physicality.”

–Collins after the loss to the Pacers, in which Indiana went on a 13-2 run to start the second half: “It’s like the same old movie. Bad stretches. We had a 13-point lead, and we had a bad stretch. We can’t keep doing the same thing over and over again.”

QUOTE TO NOTE: “We’re trying to build something here. We have to work hard.” — Coach Doug Collins.
