    Depressed Fan:
    Brian Ward: Keep Pouting, Evan


    Standing on the weak side, with his man a few feet away, waving his arms wildly in
    the air as if he's open. Holding his hands out at his sides, begging for a foul while the
    other team is busy converting his turnover into a transition hoop. Shoving someone
    out of the way after they've dunked on him so he can retrieve the ball and pass it
    inbounds. Pointing fingers when he's in the wrong spot on the defensive end and his
    man gets an easy look. Raise your hand if these things seem like Evan Turner's
    signature moves.

    Evan Turner is a subpar athlete for the NBA game. That's fine. That's OK. His jumper,
    while greatly improved from distance, is still broken. That's OK. His handle, while
    flashy, isn't enough to get him by anyone. That's alright too. At this point, it's safe to
    say that Turner is who he is. A number two pick who was not worth the number two
    pick in the NBA draft. He's been given a chance to reach his potential, and he's pretty
    much done it. He's a guy who will grab boards for you. He can run the point for a half
    -dozen minutes at a time in a limited way, and he's even surpassed his potential in
    that he's hitting a high percentage of three point looks (if he's spoon fed by someone
    else's hard work).

    Everything in that paragraph is regrettable. True, but regrettable. Once in a while, he
    gets a matchup he can take advantage of and he puts some points on the board. Every
    once in a while his 20-footer is falling and he can score on anyone (because anyone
    will give him 20-footers all night long). He's a role player in the NBA. A role player
    being paid too much money, but that's because he was drafted about 15 slots too early
    after a fool's gold run at the college level. That mistake is on Tony DiLeo, Rod Thorn
    and Ed Stefanski, not Evan Turner.

    Hoop Chalk:
    Jared Dubin: Pacers, Sixers Using Flex-y Screens to Create Open Looks

    Welcome back to The 3-Point Play, a semi-regular recurring feature here at HoopChalk.
    Every so often, I’ll take a quick look at sets from three different teams that have
    something in common. Rather than devoting a separate post to each of them, they’ll all
    be grouped together here. Today, we’ve got the Pacers, Sixers and Clippers freeing
    players up with flex screening.




    We’ll start in Indiana, with the Pacers leading the Bulls by four points with about a minute
    and a half left in the game. George Hill brings the ball up the court and swings it over to
    Roy Hibbert at the top of the key, kicking off the flex motion. Hibbert then hands it to
    Lance Stephenson moving from right to left just as Paul George sets a back screen for
    David West on the right block.

    West floats along the baseline and ends up with great position on the left side. The idea
    here seems to be to make it look like the play is to post up West on the left block. That’s
    about as good a decoy option as the Pacers can design. West is one of the best post-up
    players in the league, and he was 11-for-18 with 25 points at the time.

    However, at the same time West is floating to the opposite block, Hibbert is coming to
    set a pin-down screen for George. Jimmy Butler, trailing George on the play because he
    appeared to be contemplating a switch with Luol Deng when George screened for West,
    gets knocked too far off course to credibly contest George’s shot, and George knocks
    down the open three.



    In Philadelphia, the Sixers ran almost the exact same set for Jrue Holiday on the first
    play of the game. There were a few slight differences, starting with the alignment. While
    the Pacers had George and West on the low block with Hill, Hibbert and Stephenson
    outside, the Sixers eventually wind up in a horns set with Holiday handling the ball at the
    top of the key, Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young at opposite elbows, and Evan Turner
    and Nick Young in each corner.

    Holiday enters the ball to Hawes at the left elbow and cuts down the middle of the lane.
    Technically, that’s option number one on the play. If Holiday flashes open, Hawes can hit
    him with the pass for a layup. He doesn’t though, and then Holiday sets the first screen
    in the flex action – for Turner coming from the right baseline across to the left block.

    That’s option number two – Turner reads Holiday’s screen and decides whether to come
    under or over it, and if he’s open, Hawes can hit him with a pass for a layup. Turner
    doesn’t flash open, so he just continues to the opposite block.

    Young then comes down...CONTINUE READING AT HOOP CHALK

    I actually think this would be the most impressive win of this 3 game stretch. I'm just not counting on it.

    We look a bit tired. But unlike years in the past, we still are engaged and playing through it. Hope it continues through 48 minutes.

    How long until Philly's coach is fired? he is to much of a control freak for that team.

    Hope Philly keeps taking these quick shots. Gives us a chance to run some clock on O and catch our breath.
