PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- If Evan Turner strives for consistency over perfection, he could end up fulfilling the lofty expectations of a No. 2 overall draft pick.
Turner had 19 points, a career-high nine assists and six rebounds to lead the Philadelphia 76ers over the reeling Cleveland Cavaliers 86-79 Sunday night.

Turner, a third-year pro, has finally settled into a steady role as the team's starting small forward. He was up-and-down over the first two seasons and started just 34 games.
"I want to play well, obviously," Turner said. "Other than that, it's normal."

Earlier this week, it was announced that Andrew Bynum's debut for the Philadelphia 76ers would be postponed several more weeks due to a "setback" to his knee injuries. More details surfaced today, and it sounds as if this "setback" in which Bynum did further damage to his knees occured while bowling.
Remember when the Cavaliers almost traded for Andrew Bynum?
No ones really saying how close the Cavs actually came to obtaining Bynum from the Lakers in the off-season, but theres no doubt they were involved in talks. Instead, Bynum was shipped to Philadelphia in a deal that send Dwight Howard from Orlando to the Lakers.
