Default 76ers lineup in playoffs may change

The Chicago Bulls probably aren't the only team that will be throwing out a different starting lineup when they meet the 76ers in Game 2 on Tuesday at the United Center, as Derrick Rose is out with the knee injury he suffered toward the end of Game 1.

It would be hard to imagine that Sixers coach Doug Collins won't adjust his beginning five as he got virtually no production from starter Jodie Meeks in Saturday's 103-91 loss. Evan Turner played 29 minutes, 30 seconds in place of Meeks and scored 12 points and dished five assists.

"I thought [Turner] played very, very well," said Collins. "Evan is going to have to be out there for us, because when you play against the Bulls, you have to have playmakers, you have to have guys out on the floor who will make plays. Evan did a good job of that.
