Wednesday, February 16th, 2022, the Detroit Pistons and Boston Celtics play their second match of the season. Boston took the initial meeting on February 4th 102-93. The teams will play twice more with Detroit hosting on February 26th and Boston hosting on March 11th.
Detroit played on Monday losing 94-103 to the Wizards while the Celtics are playing a back-to-back set having pounded the 76ers 135-87 on Tuesday.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Pistons winning two of the three contests in the regular-season series. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Pistons in 244 of their 383 matches.
While the Celtics are streaking in a positive direction the Pistons are on the other side of the spectrum having lost eight in a row. If they could upset Boston it would give them a big lift of positivity heading into the break.
Cade Cunningham will be headed to Cleveland along with teammates Saddiq Bey and Isaiah Stewart joining him as the trio participates in the Clorox Rising Stars Friday event.
Bey and Stewart are both playing on Detroit legend Isiah Thomas’ team while Cunningham was selected by Rick Barry. Cunningham will also be involved in All-Star Saturday night as part of the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.
He’s part of Team Rook with fellow rookies Josh Giddey and Scottie Barnes who’ll showcase their passing shooting and speed via relays versus Team Antetokounmpo (the three brothers) and Team Cavs (Evan Mobley, Darius Garland, and Jarrett Allen).
Frank Jackson (back) was downgraded to out Wednesday versus the Celtics.
The Celtics aren’t just hot their scorching hot serving up a statement win over the 76ers that pulled them within two games of Philly for the sixth seed and gave them a 1.5 padding over the Raptors.
While they’ve won nine games in a row, the win over the Sixers was by far the most impressive. While many teams need the All-Star break for mental and physical rest the Celtics are the one team screaming ‘make it last forever’.
Jayson Tatum will head to Cleveland after this match to participate in the big game Sunday as a starter replacing Kevin Durant in that position although KD should be hand on to cheer on his squad.
Marcus Smart left the game on Tuesday with an ankle sprain and is unlikely to play versus the Pistons while Robert Williams III (calf) was out Tuesday he’s listed as questionable for Wednesday.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
I may regret this because I rarely go against a team on a winning streak but the Pistons are a team with the right length to bother the Celtics. That’s why Boston has been feasting with their length on defense and the ball movement on offense.
A team with a similar ability (the Raptors) always seems to lose to the Pistons and while that might have more to do with Duane Casey and him getting revenge for being fired I think it’s the Pistons frontcourt size.
Also unlike most opponents who want to get into a track meet Detroit is more than happy to slow things down, clog up the lanes and play half-court defense.
This has trap game written all over it so I’m taking the points, the Pistons, and big upset!
