Boston pulled off a huge OT win over the Raptors (117-116) on Saturday and have been resting up since due to the Easter holidays.

These two teams are actually healthy coming into this game. Monroe is a GTD for Detroit, but he should suit up tonight. Crowder is a GTD on the Celtics, although he plays a very small role anyways.

I’m betting on Boston to cover the small point spread because I expected the spread to be higher. Boston should be at least a –3 or –4 point favorite in my opinion, as they’re fighting for the playoffs in the East.

Detroit are completely out of the playoff race and have basically packed it in. My biggest concern about the Celtics tonight is lack of size. Detroit will be towering over Boston at several positions.

Razor Ray's Picks

Smart, Bradley and Turner are all small guards, but they’re all starting for Boston. It allows them to stretch out the court on offense and dish the basketball around, but it hurts on the defensive end.

Boston ranks 5th in assists (24.3 APG), but only 11th in rebounds (44.0 RPG). Detroit will have an edge on the glass (45.0 RPG – 4th), but they don’t average as many assists (21.3 APG – 17th).

Detroit is better defensively too, as they allow 99.5 PPG (15th) compared to the Celtics who are allowing 101.8 PPG (25th). Defense has been a problem for Boston throughout the entire season.

The Celtics can put up points in a hurry though, as they have multiple shooters that can put it up from anywhere on the court. Boston scores 101.1 PPG (12th), while the Pistons score 98.0 PPG (21st).

These two teams have played twice this year in Boston – the Celtics won the 1st game in OT (109-102) and the Pistons won the 2nd game in OT (105-97).

Are we in for another overtime thriller?

Free NBA Picks: Boston Celtics vs. Detroit Pistons

With just a few games left in the regular season, Boston knows they need to win out basically if they want to hang on in the East. They can’t afford losing to teams ranked below them in the East.

Boston Celtics –1 (-110)

Detroit is only 17-21 at home, which is poor even by their standards. Boston should be able to come into the Palace of Auburn Hills and steal a win, but they’ll need Smart, Turner and Bradley to all produce.
