The Pistons enter this contest a full game ahead of the No. 9 Miami Heat and hold the eighth seed with a recent four-game winning streak. The Celtics have lost four straight, but they’re also seven full games ahead of the Brooklyn Nets and own the No. 5 seed.
These two tip of at 7:30 p.m. ET in Boston on Wednesday.
So far this season, the Detroit Pistons are averaging 106.5 points per game. That number is only good enough for 26th in the league, but the more surprising part is that they’re struggling to score despite Blake Griffin having (at least for numerous stretches) a career year.
At this point in 2018-19, Griffin is posting 26.2 points per night. That is a career high by a relative longshot, but the problem is that the No. 2 scorer on the team also comes from the block in Andre Drummond’s 17.3 points per game.
No guards are scoring more than 14.8 points per contest, and their No. 4 leading scorer on the year, Reggie Bullock (12.1 PPG), was traded at the deadline.
Entering this game, the Pistons are just 23rd in Offensive Efficiency, averaging 104.1 points per 100 possessions.
The Boston Celtics have lost two straight and have underwhelmed for much of the season, as evidenced by their current fifth seed, in comparison to their preseason expectations. But when the line is eventually set for this contest, the C’s should be favored.
So far this season, Boston has earned top-five status in both Offensive and Defensive Efficiency. Detroit is surprisgly effective on Defense, earning top-10 status up to this point, but their lack of offense is what’s going to sway this one in Boston’s direction.
The Celtics aren’t where they want to be, but they have a much better balance between offense and defense than their opponent on Wednesday night.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Celtics by 5 (Odds OFF As of 8:45pm ET Tuesday night)
If the Celtics allow a third scorer to get involved in Detroit’s offense, that could spell trouble. After all, Detroit is already a good defensive team and when its offense is clicking, it begins to reach its full potential.
That said, Boston—another very good defensive unit—should be able to hold the perimeter players from getting too involved and will be fine if both Adre Drummond ad Blake Griffin go for big nights.
Give this one to the Celtics.
