On Monday February 26, the Detroit Pistons arrive at the Air Canada Centre to face their host the Toronto Raptors. The Pistons enter on the second game of a back to back set having lost badly to the Hornets. The Raptors also enter off a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, but haven’t played since Friday.
Last season the Raptors took three of the four games and hold the early one game lead this season. The Pistons hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 51 of their 83 matches.
Since the trade to land Blake Griffin the Pistons front court has been highly productive. Andre Drummond offers Griffin a similar counterpart to DeAndre Jordan in terms of his rebounding, rim protection and defense. The key difference is his offensive versatility.
The problem is Stan Van Gundy can’t get anything out of his bench and the team is struggling the minute the reserves take to the court.
This is resulting in losses for the Pistons who are trying to move up into a playoff position. Losing five of their past six games certainly isn’t helping their cause.
Reggie Jackson (ankle) and Jon Leuer (ankle) both remain out of action.
The Raptors suffered just their fifth loss at home last week with the Bucks prevailing in overtime. It also ended the Raptor seven game win streak.
While the Bucks were the more aggressive team the refs failed to call a mugging of Jonas Valanciunas which could have sealed the victory for Toronto at the end of regulation. Again in the overtime Valanciunas received a scrape across his face without the ensuing free throws.
Despite this seeming miscue by the officials Dwane Casey pointed to his club not being as aggressive or ready to meet the Bucks physicality.
Toronto played only one game in the first week back from the All-Star Break, but will make up for it with four contests this week. Toronto is among four clubs (Warriors, Wolves, Wizards) who’ve failed to lose more than two games in a row this season. This has occurred on just four occasions and never at the ACC.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction: Raptors -10.5
The key issue of the Pistons just happens to be the key strength of the Raptors. So, while the 10.5 points seems like a big point spread the home court, Raptors reserves and wins following losses all bodes well for the home side.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick:
Jonas Valanciunas plays some of his best matches facing Andre Drummond and after the past game he’ll want a bounce back performance.
