PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia 76ers heard all the whispers before the season started. They were predicted by most experts to be among the worst teams in the league, if not the worst. Through six games, the Sixers are choosing not to listen. Evan Turner scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Tony Wroten added 18 points and the Sixers cruised past the Cleveland Cavaliers 94-79 on Friday night, overshadowing the return of Andrew Bynum. Thaddeus Young added 16 points, while James Anderson and Michael Carter-Williams had 11 each for the Sixers, who ended a two-game losing streak and improved to 4-2. Spencer Hawes scored 10 points. "I think the biggest thing is were not listening to anyone on the outside and were just coming to work ready to play," said Young, who added eight rebounds. "We have a young, hard-working group of guys in here and we all have a lot to prove. We just need to stick together and I think our confidence is growing with each win." Wrotens offensive output was a career-best. "It was a great feeling," Wroten said. "Hard work has paid off. Getting an opportunity to play is a blessing." The buzz leading into the game was the return of Bynum, who signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Cavaliers in July. Bynum had been acquired by the Sixers in a four-team, 12-player trade in the summer of 2012. But the two-time All-Star centre never played for the Sixers because of bilateral bone bruises in both knees. He had season-ending arthroscopic surgery in March and wound up signing the incentive-laden deal with the Cavaliers as a free agent. Booed every time he touched the ball, Bynum played 18 minutes in a reserve role and finished with four points and five rebounds. "It was just another game for me," Bynum said. Bynum said he wasnt bothered by the chilly reception from the Philadelphia fans. "I thought it was a little weak," Bynum said. "I thought it was going to be much worse. It wasnt." Dion Waiters led the Cavaliers with 18 points while Jarrett Jack and C.J. Miles added 13 each. Tristan Thompson had 13 points and 16 rebounds and Kyrie Irving contributed 10 points on 4-for-17 shooting for Cleveland, which fell to 2-4 with all four losses coming on the road. "We need some grittiness and some toughness to surface, especially on the road," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. "Right now, its not happening and I dont know if its because we dont have the home crowd giving us a little extra energy or what it is." The Sixers built a 19-point lead early in the fourth quarter. Cleveland never got within single digits the rest of the way. The Cavaliers led by as many as 14 points in the first half, but the Sixers finished the half strong and took a 44-42 advantage into the locker room. NOTES: Cavaliers F Anthony Bennett left the game with 8:37 remaining in the second quarter and didnt return because of a sprained right shoulder. Bennett, the No. 1 overall pick in Junes draft, was scoreless in six minutes and remains 1 for 20 from the field through six games. . Sixers C Daniel Orton missed the game because of right knee soreness. . The Sixers wore red, white and blue headbands in honour of Veterans Day, which is Monday. Adidas Originals Online Ireland . The home side created most of the chances but struggled to break down Braunschweigs resilient defence, resulting in the Bundesligas 1,000th scoreless draw. Adidas Superstar Sneakers Sale . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. http:/... . 10 VCU 85-67 on Thursday night at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Due to the fact the Habs training staff has been the busiest members of the club to start the year, the injury ward is a full house, and now its time for the kids to play a bigger role. The Canadiens started the season without Alexei Emelin, lost Douglas Murray and Davis Drewiske for extended periods during training camp, George Parros saw just over four minutes opening night, Max Pacioretty missed the second game of the year, returned and then suffered the hamstring injury in Winnipeg, Daniel Briere left with a concussion and Brandon Prust hurt his shoulder against Nashville.? Many of the injuries have been under unusual circumstances as well, which makes it all the more frustrating. Yet, the Canadiens have managed to battle on, thanks to some stellar goaltending from Carey Price and the youth movement emerging into bigger roles. Price has been the backbone of the teams success early this year, and is making a very strong case to be Team Canadas starter in Sochi. He has stopped 139 of the last 145 shots he has faced over four games with a save percentage of .959% including a shutout against the Jets. He has tweaked his game working with Stephane Waite, and now finds himself playing a more compact style. Hes consistently square to the shooter, swallowing up rebounds, and has stood up on high shots, swatting them away with his arm. Its clear that Price is on the top of his game and seems to be getting stronger as the games wear on. P.K. Subban leads all NHL defenseman in points, and is continuing to build on his Norris Trophy season from last year, also making it tough for Team Canada to ignore his play. His ice time has been increasing on special teams as well, which is a work in progress for the coaching staff. He is the NHL leader in ppower play ice time, averaging over five minutes a game.dddddddddddd Lars Eller leads the Habs in goals and is scoring on 25% of the shots he takes.? He has shown great chemistry with Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher on his wings, as that line has been the most dangerous every night. Now with all the injuries, they will be relied on even more to carry the load. All part of the youth movement needing to play a bigger role. One player that is slowly gaining the confidence of Michel Therrien and in turn is getting more responsibility is Michael Bournival. He scored his first NHL goal at home this week against Columbus.? So far, the 21 year old has averaged 8:39 in time on ice, but has been around the 10 minute mark the last 3 games and has fired 11 shots on goal. His speed has been an asset, and it looks as though hell be promoted against the Oilers on a line with Tomas Plekanec and Brian Gionta. Patrick Holland is also set to make his NHL debut as he was recalled from Hamilton along with Michael Blunden to help fill the vacant forward spots.? Holland was acquired along with Rene Bourque as part of the trade with Calgary involving Michael Cammalleri in January 2012. The veteran forward line of Rene Bourque, David Desharnais and Travis Moen will also be expected to elevate their offensive output. The three have combined for just two goals and six points total in the opening eight games, with Bourque covering both goals and half the points. It wont an easy week either, with the Oilers visiting Montreal on Tuesday, looking to avenge a 4-1 loss in Edmonton. On Thursday, Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu make their only visit to the Bell Centre this year with the Ducks, followed by the Sharks on Saturday night. The next few weeks for the Canadiens might provide a big test to see how much the youth of the team is ready to carry the load on their own.
