Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-11-09

Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-11-09Eddie Jordan is still searching for a regular rotation. He's tried four guys -- Royal Ivey, Willie Green, Rodney Carney and rookie Jrue Holiday -- as the primary guard off the bench.

"My eighth player, which is the first 'small', is someone I need to find who's going to make some headway," Jordan said. "Some of it's going to be matchups. But if you distinguish yourself -- in the game, in practice -- as the guy, then he's going to be in the rotation.

Ivey got the first shot and might be the favorite primarily because Jordan likes the way Ivey defends. On a team that isn't loaded with defensive stoppers and has trouble contesting three-point shots, that could be significant, even though Ivey isn't a consistent scorer or true point guard.

Green didn't play in two halves during the first four games, but then Jordan called on him for the entire fourth quarter in Friday's close win over the Nets because of Green's steadying on-court influence.

Carney runs the floor well and has a decent three-point shot, but he still seems to be playing too fast and borderline out of control.

Holiday, the team's first-round pick, should be a starter within three years. After not being called upon in two of the first six games, though, he could use some confidence.

PISTONS 88, SIXERS 81: The Sixers couldn't finish the job against the Pistons. They missed their final eight shots from the field after Willie Green hit a jumper with 6:02 remaining, during which time they were outscored 15-4. Detroit held a 51-39 rebounding advantage, including 21-14 on the offensive glass.
