Sixers’ Turner, Vucevic Get Starting Nod
Sometimes change is a good thing, whether done out of necessity or just because. Sometimes, it just doesn’t make any difference.
It was the latter for the 76ers Monday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. Despite a couple of changes to the starting lineup, the Sixers lost for the 10th time in 14 games, this time by 97-93.
Coach Doug Collins decided his team needed a different look, so second-year swingman Evan Turner got his first start of the season in place of Jodie Meeks at shooting guard and rookie Nikola Vucevic replaced fellow rookie Lavoy Allen at center.
