Video Highlights of Evan Turner and Marcus Thornton against Philadelphia
It wasn't always pretty, but a win is a win is a win is a win. Even if it's preseason.
The surprise of the night was Evan Turner, whose entire tenure as a member of the Boston Celtics has been shrouded in mystery. When he signed over the summer, people said, "huh?"
That quickly morphed into, "Wait... did we sign Evan Turner? When did he actually sign?" That speculation lasted right up until Media Day when paperwork was actually filed with the league.
Besides the fun "are we sure we signed ET" chatter, the real question was what can we expect from a former second overall pick? While a preseason game is not exactly telling, Evan Turner took this opportunity to showcase what can happen when you give him the ball.
Another new Celtic, Marcus Thornton, was quick to add to the momentum created by Turner by adding highlights of his own.
The Celtics are back in action with another preseason game this Wednesday October 8th against the New York Knicks in Hartford, CT.
