Perhaps the best postgame quote from the Celtics' uninspiring yet meaningful 96-92 win in New York last night came from Brad Stevens' son, who apparently had a nice chat with Evan Turner:
Brad Stevens' kid in locker room, tells Evan Turner "You're in the top 25 in statistics." Turner: "Thanks, tell Danny Ainge that."

In the #Celtics locker room, Evan Turner says to Brad Stevens' son Brady, "Tell your dad to stop yelling at me."

Who knows what kind of crazy advanced numbers Stevens' kid has been perusing, but after a very brief bit of research I've come up with the following:
- Turner ranks just outside the NBA's top 25 in turnovers per game
- He is, however, tied for fifth in the league in triple-doubles this season (with 2)
That is a statistic, and Turner is decidedly in the top 25.
