FanDuel.com featured fantasy basketball tournament info for NBA Friday

Hope you started Ersan Ilyasova last night! With their eyes on another key win versus an Eastern Conference playoff contender, the Bucks earned another much-needed victory thanks to Ilyasova's career-high 34 points. It's fair to call it a breakout game, but in reality Ersan has been playing well for quite a while. The Bucks have to be hoping he can keep it up. If Ersan is scoring, rebounding, and shooting well from deep, he provides a ton of value to a starting lineup that can find itself starved for efficient scoring at times. We won't see Ilyasova again until Saturday when the Bucks take...

Ersan Ilyasova's big night was the culmination of a long stretch of solid play

Ilyasova's career-high seemed to come out of nowhere, but he's been quietly producing for weeks now. Milwaukee got a much-need victory Thursday night against the Indiana Pacers, a key win as the Bucks look to secure their playoff spot late in the season. It came on the back of an unlikely hero, Ersan Ilyasova. The Bucks' up-and-down power forward exploded for a career-high 34 points on a spicy 12-14 shooting line (5-6 3PT, 5-6 FT). He blitzed the Pacers early, outscoring Indiana 17-15 by himself in the first quarter as the Bucks build a massive early lead. Few would have predicted Ilyasova...

Ersan Ilyasova notches career-high 34 in Bucks win over Pacers

Ersan Ilyasova topped his previous career-high of 32 points Thursday evening. On a night that featured Milwaukee and Indiana as the only NBA matchup, Ersan Ilyasova wasn't going to let the NCAA Tournament outshine him. Ilyasova poured in career-high 34 points for the Bucks as they pulled off their second-straight victory at home by defeating the Pacers 111-107. A season-best performance for the 6-foot-10 man from Turkey began early, as Ilyasova scored 12 straight points for the Bucks on five consecutive shots. Ilyasova scored a career-high 17 when the first quarter concluded after...

Pacers vs. Bucks Final Score: Ersan Ilyasova's monster night helps Bucks hang on vs. Pacers, 111-107

62 fouls. 77 free throws. And one exhausting but desperately needed win for the Milwaukee Bucks. Realistically it probably shouldn't have been quite so difficult for the Bucks on Thursday night -- not when Ersan Ilyasova scores 34 points on an absurd 12/13 shooting from the field, and not after Milwaukee led by as many as 21 in the first half and held a double-digit advantage for much of the second half. But the Bucks are all about "difficult" these days, and the visiting Pacers (and refs) did their parts as well in making the Bucks sweat down the stretch of their 111-107 home win....

Pacers final score: Bucks top Pacers 111-107

Indiana closed a 23-point first quarter gap, but came up short in Milwaukee despite 26 from C.J. Miles and 23 from George Hill. A late push fell short for the Indiana Pacers, who dug themselves in a massive hole early, dropping them 111-107 against the Milwaukee Bucks. George Hill had a chance for a game tying three in the final seconds, but the ball went in and out to give Milwaukee their win, putting Indiana back in the loss column as the season enters its final 10 games. The Pacers trailed 34-11 with one minute remaining in the first quarter, surrendering 17 to Ersan Ilyasova, who had a...
