Evan Turner hasn't exactly been lighting up the scoreboard of late. He scored just one point in 19 minutes on Tuesday… and that might be enough to get Beeker benched: [Philly Sports Daily]
“He’s not playing well right now,” Collins said. “When we dig ourselves a hole, I’ve got to go with somebody else. Minutes are precious. We’ve got a little pit bull over there wants to play.”
That would be second-year man Jodie Meeks…
“Evan is struggling to fit in with ‘Dre and Jrue,” Collins said. “He has not played his best basketball with that threesome. He’s just not comfortable off the ball right now. As a result, offensively, he becomes a standstill jump shooter, which is not the best part of his game.”
There you have it, Evan Turner could be benched for Jodie Meeks. This Sixers season is off to a rousing start, yo.
Of course, perhaps Turner is timid playing with ball hog Iguodala. Who would want to deal with this?
Meanwhile at The Well, crews were shooting a Verizon commercial. I suppose they left out the AT&T Pavilion.

Danny Briere, Scott Hartnell, and Mike Richards were a part of it as well. Commercial was a spoof on the Flyers going 82-0 and keeping beards throughout.
