Jae Crowder hit 8-of-17 shots and a 3-pointer for 18 points, four rebounds, two assists and a block in Wednesday's win over the Jazz.

Crowder had just four points and two boards in his previous game, but is still averaging 12.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.8 3-pointers on 40 percent shooting over his last five games. He played 33 minutes on Wednesday, altering getting 14 minutes on Tuesday.
Mar 4 - 10:57 PM

Evan Turner hit just 1-of-8 shots for two points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 25 minutes of Wednesday's win.

Turner didn't have his shot working tonight, but has been playing well for the Celtics. We're guessing he bounces back, but with Brad Stevens running the show, it's impossible to tell if this is a trend or a fluke.
Mar 4 - 10:55 PM

Brandon Bass played just 18 minutes and finished with seven points and four rebounds on Wednesday.

Kelly Olynyk was back, but played just seven minutes, so Bass's line is a bit concerning. Brad Stevens uses some interesting rotations, and Bass only had one foul tonight. As of tonight, he's no longer a reliable fantasy option, in our opinion.
Mar 4 - 10:53 PM

Tyler Zeller hit 4-of-8 shots for eight points, 11 rebounds, one assist, a steal and two blocks, and also hit the game-winning shot in Wednesday's win.

Zeller had just four points and three rebounds on Tuesday, but bounced back tonight, getting his team a win. This was his first game-winner of his career and the first for a Celtics' big man since Kevin Garnett did it in 2009. Kelly Olynyk came off the bench in this one, and will eventually hurt Zeller, but TZ is still averaging 8.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks over his last five games.
Mar 4 - 10:51 PM

Trevor Booker had 11 points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes of Wednesday's loss.

Booker came off the bench and helped out Derrick Favors, who was in foul trouble with five of them. Favors still had 16 points, five boards and a block, and when combined with phenom Rudy Gobert, makes Booker an afterthought on most nights.
Mar 4 - 10:48 PM

Trey Burke had 16 points, six boards, and eight assists on 7-of-17 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Celtics.

Burke hit just 2-of-11 shots for a disappointing fantasy game on Tuesday, but bounced back on Wednesday, and did what he does.
Mar 4 - 10:46 PM

Rudy Gobert had 10 points, 16 rebounds, three assists, a steal and three blocks on 3-of-9 shooting in 36 minutes of Wednesday's loss to the Celtics.

Gobert is ballin', and has become a must-own player since Enes Kanter was traded to the Thunder. He had 15 points and 24 rebounds in his last game, and is the definition of a must-start player going forward. Ironically, the shot blocker was on the floor when Tyler Zeller hit his game-winning layup, but that just doesn't matter in fantasy.
Mar 4 - 10:43 PM
P.J. Tucker - G/F - Suns

P.J. Tucker kept it going on Wednesday with 19 points, five rebounds, three steals, a block and a 3-pointer on 7-of-10 shooting.

Tucker is hot, averaging 13.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 0.6 3-pointers while shooting 49 percent over his last five games. Yes, he's worth picking up if you have a hole to fill.
