JRUE HOLIDAY delivered his first assist to Evan Turner more than a month before they officially became teammates. In May, when the Sixers sent their rookie point guard to Secaucus, N.J., to be their good-luck charm at the NBA lottery, Holiday had only one mission. "Everybody told me to go up there and look for Evan," Holiday said last night after the Sixers selected Turner with the second pick in the draft. "We wanted the No. 2 pick. "Yes, we wanted to shoot for No. 1, but everyone was saying, 'Evan Turner.

These two youngsters are clearly under the most pressure to deliver on the expectations. They are the face of hope for the Sixers. Veterans Andre Iguodala and Elton Brand make the most money by far, but Sixers fans are staking everything in Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner becoming the best backcourt since Maurice Cheeks and Andrew Toney. That's asking a lot of two kids who have a combined 51 NBA starts between them, and one of the two has zero. At 19, Holiday was the youngest player in the NBA last season, but once former coach Eddie Jordan gave him the ball for good, he began to show flashes of a top-notch floor general.

Not only are the 76ers trying to get some wins, they hope to get one of their key players back on track. Evan Turner, the team's third-leading scorer at 13.3 points per game, has scored a total of 39 points over the last five games. His low point was a two-point effort against Portland on March 18. "He's struggling right now," coach Doug Collins said after Turner scored six points in Monday night's 107-91 setback at Utah. "So hopefully we can get him these last 12 games playing that ball that he was playing before.

NEW YORK - The 76ers got a much-needed victory that could serve as a confidence booster. Evan Turner scored a career-high 34 points. The Sixers got out of their three-point shooting funk. And they showed grit down the stretch. All of that led to a 110-106 victory over the New York Knicks Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. The win improved the Sixers to 14-28 and snapped a three-game losing streak. The Knicks (15-27) lost their fifth consecutive game. Michael Carter-Williams' three-pointer with 5 minutes, 41 seconds remaining gave the Sixers a 93-92 advantage.

DURING THE weekend split with the Boston Celtics, in which the 76ers garnered an overtime decision at home on Friday before a butt-kicking at Boston on Saturday, swingman Evan Turner hoisted a total of 42 shots. Imagine that for a second. Turner, who has appeared to absorb much of coach Doug Collins' ire during their first two seasons together, had the freedom to take that many shots. Had it not been for his 26th shot, the Sixers very well might have lost Friday's game. Turner's short jumper with 3.9 seconds left in overtime gave the Sixers a 95-94 win. The game-winner happened after he had turned the ball over late in regulation and missed his first four shots in overtime.

Evan Turner expects to become a 76er. The Ohio State junior guard has refused to participate in predraft workouts for other NBA teams. He's even jokingly told the Philadelphia-area media to "be nice to me in the future. " "I would kind of be surprised, definitely," Turner said of possibly not becoming a Sixer. But the decision, obviously, will be made by the Sixers - not Turner. And team president and general manager Ed Stefanski has stated that using the second overall pick on Turner in Thursday's draft is not a lock.

Say this for Evan Turner, he's self-assured. So far, the 76er hasn't had the impact expected as the second overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft. Despite that, Turner said that he'll be a Sixer next season even though his name has come up before in trade rumors. "Not to be arrogant or cocky, but my name comes up, I believe, because of trade value in that situation," Turner said. "Regardless of whether I get heat for certain situations or certain bad nights and stuff, I still think I'm a valuable player in this league.

A report on ESPN.com early Saturday said that the 76ers were exploring potential trade options involving small forward Evan Turner. Sixers general manager Tony DiLeo did not comment on the report. Turner, however, discussed it. "I'm not a GM, so I really don't know [my trade value]," Turner said. "I think it's all about what our team needs, and that's it. Whatever. I think that the best is yet to come with me in general, wherever it occurs. " Turner is making $5.3 million this season.

BOSTON - Evan Turner feels for the 76ers. The Boston Celtics reserve guard/forward has been paying close attention to their rebuilding process. He also knows firsthand the frustration that the players and coaches are going through as the losses mount. The Sixers made him the second overall pick in 2010, and he saw some lean times before he was traded to the Indiana Pacers in February 2014. That was in the middle of the first of three straight tanking seasons. Turner has settled with the Celtics, but the Sixers are still setting futility records.

The 76ers have stressed a family atmosphere ever since Sam Hinkie was hired as general manager in May 2013. Thursday was an example of that. Hinkie, coach Brett Brown and forward Luc Mbah a Moute skipped a 111-91 preseason loss to the Boston Celtics to be at the side of injured rookie center Joel Embiid. A native of Cameroon, Embiid learned Thursday that his brother, Arthur, had died in Africa. The Sixers had no further information. "We are all a family here," said assistant coach Chad Iske, who coached in Brown's place.

BOSTON - It's hard to believe that only 4 years ago, Philadelphia basketball fans were anticipating a 76ers backcourt consisting of Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner for the next 10 years. How things have changed since then, huh? In his first big move as general manager, Sam Hinkie traded Holiday to New Orleans on draft night 2013. Turner was dealt last February. Though troubled by some injuries, Holiday's future is pretty set as the starting point guard for the Pelicans, a team rising quickly among the NBA ranks.

Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported the two engaged in a fistfight and had to be pried apart the day before Game 1 of the Pacers' first-round playoff series against he Hawks. Not so, the players said yesterday. "Honestly, the person who wrote the article asked me if the fight happened, I told him, 'No, it wasn't [a fight],' and he just went on and wrote that there were punches thrown and all this, and it wasn't," Turner, who played three-plus seasons with the Sixers, told the Indianapolis Star.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The 76ers are the laughingstock of professional sports. They have been for weeks and have crept within one game of the NBA record for most losses in a row. The league's new commissioner has taken notice. "You don't like to see any team go through a losing streak like they currently are, or flirt with the longest losing streak in the history of the league," Adam Silver told reporters Monday in Charlotte, N.C. "That's bad for everyone. It's potentially damaging to the players involved and the culture they're trying to create.

EVAN TURNER didn't expect to get a warm welcome from Philadelphia fans last night as he made his return to the Wells Fargo Center as a member of the Indiana Pacers. Turner had only two points, along with four each of rebounds and assists in 21 minutes, during his team's 101-94 win. But while fans were disappointed in Turner's play during his 4 years here because he didn't live up to their expectations after getting taken with the second pick in 2010, Turner's time here was invaluable to him for his career.

The return of Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen was a little more competitive than expected. The struggling 76ers gave the Eastern Conference leading Pacers a contest before Indiana escaped with a 101-94 victory Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. This marked the 19th consecutive loss for the Sixers (15-50). A setback Saturday night at home will tie the franchise-record of 20 straight defeats rung up by infamous 1972-73 squad. The NBA record for consecutive losses is 26 by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers.

The 76ers' losing streak is intact. They suffered a 115-98 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night, extending their skid to 18 games. The Kings (23-42) were supposed to a beatable opponent for the Sixers, still winless since Jan. 29 and losers of 28 of 31. Sacramento entered the contest with a three-game losing streak. This game also marked the Kings' fourth game in six days. Instead, the setback at the Wells Fargo Center moved the Sixers closer to the franchise-record 20 straight defeats rung up by the infamous 1972-73 squad.

WELL, THAT'S just great. Danny Granger didn't blink, and Sixers president/general manager Sam Hinkie acquiesced to a buyout with the wingman they acquired from the Indiana Pacers for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Granger got what he wanted and presumably will sign with a team that has a shot at competing in the 2014 NBA Finals before hitting the market as an unrestricted free agent. This is a business. Doing Granger a favor is not what Hinkie was hired for. The Sixers had one minimal asset with Granger, his Larry Bird rights.
