Beating the Chicago Bulls is always cause for extra celebration, but the Milwaukee Bucks have to get back to business tonight when they take on the Boston Celtics, currently 9th in the Eastern Conference behind the Miami Heat on tiebreakers. Boston was expected to spend this season near the bottom of the standings as they underwent a pretty significant overhaul, but instead the team is challenging for an unexpected playoff spot. Sound familiar?

Bucks vs. Celtics Fantasy Tip
Evan Turner still has a lot of flaws as a player. He turns the ball over a lot and doesn't shoot efficiently. But in a purely box-score-centric view, he's still the same player he was in college, a versatile wing capable of contributing in every column. And in his last 21 games, he's done just that, notching three triple-doubles while averaging 11.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 6.6 assists. Those counting stats are great, even if his overall play has still been less than stellar. But in fantasy, counting stats are king! The Bucks have defenders on the wing to frustrate Turner with length, size, and athleticism, but he's still an intriguing play on that recent track record.
