Collins names starting lineup

New Sixers coach Doug Collins has announced his starting lineup for Wednesday's season opener against the Miami Heat.

Jrue Holiday and Andre Igoudala will start in the backcourt, Jason Kapano and Elton Brand will fan the forward spots and Spencer Hawes will patrol the pivot.

The sharp-shooting Kapono is the one surprise but Collins likes his presence to help space the floor. Meanwhile, the team's bench, which will feature Thaddeus Young, Evan Turner, Lou Williams, Marreese Speights, Andres Nocioni,  Darius Songalia and Tony Battie is formidable, at least on paper.

Rookie big man Craig Brackins and guard Jodie Meeks will be inactive.
