Boston Celtics vs Detroit Pistons (By: Miyagi)
The Celtics have been far from consistent recently and that has an impact on their games which have been rollercoasters, it started with the loss to the Lakers, then the unthinkable come back of the Clippers (both games at home) and then they went on to beat the Sixers on the road yesterday! Their defense has been a bit off as they have allowed more than 123p in 3 of their last 5 games and they are facing a red-hot Piston's team that is on a scoring spree as of late.
Things got worse for the Celtics ahead of this one, as Rosier, who took Irving's spot in the starting lineup, is doubtful and also expected to miss this one.
The Pistons on the other side are literally on fire recently, with 4 straight wins, averaging 119 points per game during that stretch which is huge compared to their 106ppg this season. Drummond and Griffin have both hit top form and they are scoring at will, averaging 26p each during those last 4 games!
The Celtics will Irving and probably Rosier, so they are two good scorers down. Still, they have enough manpower even in their backcourt with Jaylen and Hayward, two players that are vital for their rotation, finally starting to score more efficiently while Tatum is also in great shape.
There were more than 210 points in their previous two meetings and i was expecting a line a bit over 210, so, i like the over here and it could go way, way higher than expected if the Pistons' play like the did in their last 4 games.
