Nobody should be surprised that Dwane Cacsey has come into Detroit and straightened them out…it is what he does. They might not have a deep enough roster to compete for the Eastern Conference but this has been a playoff team the last few seasons (just sometimes they don’t actually make the playoffs). They will this season.
Boston got a nice win on the road at Oklahoma City mid week. This is a talented team but still not really firing on all cylinders. It appears Brad Stevens is going to have to do his best coaching job this season and he is just getting started.
I thought taking on Russell Westbrook might light a fire in Kyrie Irving. it didn’t, though neither star had a particularly good game in the Boston win. It seems like Irving is just not sure how he fits in with this team right now. He might be being too passive.
The same could be said for Gordon Hayward. For good reason he was considered a huge addition preseason last year. he got hurt and the team won big anyway. I suppose he is easing into things but a season low 5 points and a team low -13 in the win is showing they are not getting much from him right now.
Meanwhile Jayson Tatum continues to show his game each night, leading the team in scoring and rebounding. His percentages are not as sharp as they were a year ago so once he finds his rhythm those numbers will start looking even better, further complicating the situations with the players above.
Marcus Morris is 6th on the team in minutes but third in scoring. He has always been an underrated player and his hot shooting and key rebounding have been key to this team staying afloat as they figure things out. He can be a factor in this matchup for sure and the Celtics will need to battle up front with Detroit.
Boston will right their ship and are only 3-2 not worse but things are not looking great right now. The longer that happens the more everyone will be squirming and perhaps a chance will have to be made.
Detroit has to be excited about their start. Blake Griffin looks healthy and bouncy and playing like the star he was a few years back. He is not going to sustain a 34ppg average but he could easily settle into 25 with double digit rebounds and lead this team back to the playoffs. They are looking really good early and he is the main reason.
it is a small sample size but the presence of Griffin is getting even more out of Andre Drummond this season. His rebounding numbers are shockingly up to 17 per game and his scoring is up too. Last year they never seemed comfortable with each other but this year that uneasiness looks like it is gone.
Reggie Jackson is always going to be the Wild Card for this group. If Casey can get out of him what he got from Kyle Lowry in Toronto this team could really be going places – that means that Jackson has to be a little tougher in his game while still hunting for his own offense and being a distributor.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
No line yet but given the hot start I would think that Detroit would be favoured. It will be a test of our preseason thinking about these two clubs.
Given that Boston is healthy I think it will be hard to ignore the chance to back them with a few points to spare. Detroit has been good though I like backing them under the new regime.
