On Friday night, Evan Turner had arguably his best game in a month, leading the Sixers with 29 points, 10 rebounds and the game-winning basket for the team's first win in eight tries. Twenty-four hours later against the Bucks, Turner couldn’t buy a basket. He made just 2 of 15 field goal attempts. Between the two outings, something was clearly different. He looked gimpy Saturday, and as it turns out, Turner is suffering from right knee soreness, the Sixers said on Sunday. He is sore enough that he would be questionable if the Sixers played a game tonight. Fortunately, they don't play another game until Saturday when they visit the Phoenix Suns. “It is nothing to be concerned about,” Brett Brown said after a light Sunday practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. “He played a lot of minutes the night before in a tough win and he had a great game. But yes, he did pull up lame.” Turner’s season as a whole has been interesting. He had a strong first month, averaging 21.1 points per game on 46 percent shooting. But in December, he is averaging 16 points per game on 39 percent shooting. “Evan’s stuff is well-documented,” Brown said. “He knows he has to be more consistent.” That has been Turner’s goal for the past couple of seasons, yet it still eludes him. It's not as if he doesn’t put in the time or hard work.
