• The Sixers used all three of their power forwards in equal measure on Saturday night with Amir Johnson starting and playing 21 minutes while Richaun Holmes and Trevor Booker each received 20.

    Holmes, as expected, was the most explosive of the bunch and picked up 13 points, three rebounds and a 3-pointer while shooting 5-of-11. Booker was solid in his debut with 12 points, eight boards and a block while Johnson was pretty invisible with two points, three assists and a steal. Holmes boasts the most upside of the bunch and always seems to impress when he gets the chance, so hopefully that earns him the biggest piece of the pie going forward. Nothing is ever easy in Philly, however, and there are certain things that both Johnson and Booker bring to the table that a coaching staff might like. If anyone is a pickup it’s Holmes but you can wait a game or two to see how things look when Joel Embiid is active.
