Turner ramps up physical play in 3rd
It was obvious Saturday that the Philadelphia 76ers' Evan Turner wasn't interested in winning friends at the United Center.
He already was being booed every time he touched the ball for stating that the Miami Heat would be a more dangerous opponent than the Chicago Bulls, and then he started getting physical.
Turner landed a hard foul on Joakim Noah with 4:36 left in the third quarter. As the foul was being called, Carlos Boozer got his arm tangled up with Turner's. More players got involved and Derrick Rose, Rip Hamilton and Elton Brand all received technical fouls.
