Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Lavoy Allen lead Sixers over Bulls 109-92

The Sixers used a 36-14 3rd quarter surge to turn an 8 point half-time deficit into a blowout win. Jrue Holiday led the way early and paced the Sixers with 26 points, 6 assists, and 0 turnovers. Newly (re) anointed start Evan Turner had an incredible night with 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists as well.

The other new starter, Spencer Hawes, scored 2 points and grabbed 3 rebounds in nearly 18 minutes, and apparently received one heck of a lashing from Collins. It would be surprising if Hawes started in game 3, especially after Lavoy Allen scored 11 points and grabbed 9 rebounds, while playing nearly 26 minutes off the bench.

I don't expect future games to be this easy going forward, but it will be interesting to see how the Bulls respond on Friday. They'll clearly need to make an adjustment to better defend the perimeter.

Full recap coming early tomorrow morning.
