Celtics guard Evan Turner reached out to Kyle Korver – via an intermediary – after he blasted the Hawks guard defensive ability in a loss last week. Hawks center Elton Brand, who was a teammate of Turner in Philadelphia for several seasons, said he got a text message from Turner the day after he said Korver “couldn’t guard to save his life.” Turner made the comment after the Hawks erased a 23-point deficit in a 109-105 win over the Celtics Tuesday.

Brand confirmed the text message. He said Turner apologized for the comments and added they were taken out of context as he also praised Korver for making several big shots in the win. Korver finished with a team-high 24 points in the game, including six 3-pointers. Atlanta Journal-Constitution
