Hollinger leaps onto the Sixers' bandwagon...

3

It's an Insider article, so I'm pasting the relevant part... "Philadelphia 76ers: Hint: When we launch the Power Rankings next week, don't be surprised if the Sixers are a lot higher than you might expect. They might be only 3-2, but the Sixers have the league's third-best scoring margin even though they have yet to play a home game. Moreover, Philly is hearing positive answers to most of it preseason questions. Can Evan Turner take a step forward in Year 2? Apparently so, after he carved up the Hornets for 21 off the bench Wednesday night. Can the Sixers establish a perimeter game? They are shooting 40 percent on 3s even though their best shooter, Jodie Meeks, can't buy a bucket right now. OK, it's only 85 attempts as a team, but thus far Andre Iguodala and Louis Williams are flashing much better long-range games. And finally, there's the big question: Can Spencer Hawes be stopped? Actually, that wasn't a preseason question many had, but Hawes seems intent on getting a big payday after signing for the qualifying offer this past summer. The 7-footer has been the Sixers' best player thus far, averaging 13.0 points and filling his line with 11.4 boards, 3.6 dimes and 2.2 blocks."
