An Eastern conference showdown that could go a long ways in deciding who gets the two seed on Friday night.
The Boston Celtics travel north of the border to take on the Toronto Raptors.
This is the fourth match up of the year between the two teams. The Raptors have won two of the previous three meetings.
This is the first meeting for the Celtics coming out of the All Star break. The Celtics hope to continue the hot streak they had before the All Star Break.
They come into this game having won eight of their last ten games. They however did lose their last game against the Bulls 104-103.
They currently have a four game lead over the Raptors for the 2nd seed so if they could win this game it might be too much for the Raptors to overcome.
The Celtics are a good team on the offensive side of the ball. They average 108 points per game well shooting 45 percent from the field.
They are led by Isaiah Thomas. He averages 29.9 points and 6.3 assists per game. The Celtics will go as far as he takes them.
The Celtics have played good on the road. They come into this game with a record of 17-12 away from home.
This is the biggest game of the season so far for the Toronto Raptors, so they can not come out cold to start the game or it could be a very long night.
If the Raptors lose this game they will have a very hard time climbing back up to the two seed. The Raptors were playing poor basketball before the All Star Break.
They are 4-6 in their last ten games. A lot of their problems have been on the offensive side of the ball. For some reason they have not been able to score points and go long stretches in the game without scoring.
For the Raptors to win they need to get off to the fast start and consistently score. If they go a long stretch without scoring in this game they will have zero chance to win.
The Raptors have played well on their home court coming into this game with a record of 19-10 at home.
