The top two teams in the Eastern Conference meet for the first time this season. Boston and Detroit were also trading partners in the offseason and Avery Bradley will make his return to Boston.
Detroit swapped Marcus Morris for Avery Bradley in the offseason to help Boston make room for Gordon Hayward’s contract and to improve their own perimeter defense.
I don’t think Boston has much to complain about with their own success but so far that trade has worked out well for Detroit. Morris missed the first month of the season for Boston and Bradley has been a big part of the Pistons’ improvement this season.
Bradley will get a big hand at the Garden. Celtics fans loved him for his loyalty and hard-nosed defense. Then he will go on to guard Kyrie Irving and assume the role of villain.
The other big part of Detroit’s turnaround is the development of Andre Drummond. A lot of people thought he was done improving and would just continue to be what he was: a big body that rebounded and dunked but didn’t do much else. Drummond has grown his offensive game into much more than that. He has even improved his free throw percentage by more than 50 percent, from below 40 to above 60. Most of what Detroit does offensively and defensively starts with Drummond.
Boston rebounded from its third loss of the season with wins over Orlando and Indiana. The last win in Indy came without the services of Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris, who should both be back in the starting lineup on Monday.
Marcus Smart stepped in for Brown and delivered his finest offensive performance of the season thus far, shooting 7-of-8 for 15 points. Daniel Theis started for Morris and played hard, as per usual.
Detroit has historically given Boston trouble, whether there or in Boston and this game should be no exception. The Pistons are off of a win at Oklahoma City, where the Warriors just lost. The Celtics won’t be able to out-hustle the Pistons, who are playing confidently. This game will likely come down to the fourth quarter, where Kyrie Irving has been the man for Boston. Things won’t be as easy with Bradley dogging him, though.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction: the Pistons play hard and either win or lose a close game.
What I’m trying to say is that I’m on Detroit with the points. This game should be low-scoring and close so 6.5 points are plenty to attract me to a team that has always played well in the Garden.
