Glen Perkins is likely unavailable Sunday after working three days in a row.
While Perkins has notched three saves in his last four outings, he's been touched up for three runs over his last two appearances and has thrown a significant number of pitches over the last three days. Should the Twins find themselves in a save situation Sunday, Casey Fien would likely be the guy to get the call. Jared Burton may also be a possibility. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jahlil Okafor scored 14 points (7-18 FGA) with nine rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one assist in 30 minutes on Monday for the 76ers.
Concern came when Okafor switched to the four from the five as the guarding of stretch fours could cost him rebounds and make run more than he typically does on the block, but with the early results in, it seems that those concerns are not to be worried about. Following the best game of his young career on Saturday, Monday's outing was another very solid effort from the Duke product coming close to yet another double-double and contributing in every category. Now that we are passed the typical college season in terms of games played, it's good to see that the rookie is keeping his production steady. He should be a starter every night in all formats.
