Nets defeat 76ers, 90-89

76ers went with a small starting lineup this afternoon against the New Jersey Nets. Spencer Hawes, who started the first two preseason games at center, was out with a lower back strain. Instead of filling his spot with backup Marreese Speights, Sixers coach Doug Collins started rookie shooting guard Evan Turner and moved everyone else up a spot: Andre Iguodala to small forward, Thaddeus Young to power forward, and Elton Brand to center.
