Evan Turner, Doug Collins Hit a High Point
By (Evan) Turner’s admission, Friday marks a new high point in his relationship with his coach.
“I think it is a high point,” said Turner, who said that before he told the press, (Doug) Collins told the team Turner’s scrappy moment was the team’s play of the year. Turner, however, was more delighted with something else Collins did: called his number. “The last two plays, he ran the play for me,” said Turner. “As a player, that’s the big thing, that you can show me you have confidence in me. Thankfully he did that. … It was pretty cool. He had confidence in me to give me the ball in crucial parts of the game.”
Is it a permanent change? Who knows. “Doug definitely rolls with the hot hand,” said Turner. “Some nights I might not get the opportunity. But right now, you just enjoy it.”
