Is Evan Turner a better point guard than Rajon Rondo? Yeah, of course I'm joking, but seriously, Turner is either going through what Jordan Crawford went through in the beginning of last year or he has finally found his niche, but in any case, Brad Stevens is really good at making use of his guards. Turner had 29 points (12-22 shooting), 5 rebounds and 6 assists tonight.

Jared Sullinger also had a nice (that might be an understatement) outing to end his slump-ish series of performances with an impressive double-double: 16 points and 16 rebounds. All the starters for the Celtics scored in double digits: Avery Bradley's 17 points on 8-15 shooting should also be mentioned. So you might ask how the hell they lost this game? Well, they were outrebounded by 14, but most importantly, they gave up 24 offensive rebounds to the Bulls. 24. Yeah.

Nonetheless, this was an impressive outing. The Celtics remain in the Playoff picture, and will do so if they keep up this level of effort. The veterans in Brooklyn are improving, the Bucks are playing good ball under Jason Kidd, but nonetheless the Celtics are an enjoyable team, um, yeah, when Turner starts at 1.

One thing is for sure: You'll be entertained while watching these Celtics. The Bulls were without Butler and Dunleavy, but that what they did tonight is still impressive.
