Down by as many as 18 points, Philly forces overtime but loses 108-105
Collins and Nets coach Avery Johnson seemed to have a gentlemen’s agreement. They played their second/third teams in the fourth quarter and overtime, which meant no Williams, Johnston, Wallace and Lopez for the Nets, and no Evan Turner (14 points) and Jrue Holiday (10 points, 9 assists, but plagued with foul trouble trying to keep up with Williams).
Footnote: Doug Collins did not play either Jason Richardson or Dorell Wright last night. Local fans will hopefully get to see these new additions if they watch the Sixers vs. Boston Monday night on Comcast SportsNet, the first televised game of the pre-season. The announced attendance for the game was 6,887.
