Evan Turner knew he wasn't going to get the warmest welcome at the United Center Saturday, and when faced with a large echo of booscirclingThe Madhousethe76ers guard was able to shake it off. "The fans are not playing on the court," Turner told CSNPhilly.com's Dei Lynam after the Sixersfell in Game 1. "To tell you the truth, I only worry about my teammates, the opponent and the positive people like my family and friends in the stands. I don't worry about the people that don't play on the court."In 30 minutes of play, Turner scored 12 points, had five assists and three rebounds in the 103-91 loss."I thought he handled himself well," said teammate Thaddeus Young. "He didn't let it get to him or encourage the fans. I have seen people where they start going back at the fans and instead he handled it like a professional and just played."Get more reaction from Turner and his teammates at CSNPhilly.com
