The Raptors lost at the horn on Wednesday night. They had a twelve-point lead at halftime and an eleven-point lead going into the fourth quarter but Detroit made a furious comeback and Reggie Bullock hit the game-winner at the buzzer to give the Pistons an impressive 106–104 road win.
Bullock only had five points but made the big shot when it counted. Blake Griffin hit for thirty and Kawhi Leonard led the Raptors with twenty-six in thirty-six minutes. Leonard had nine rebounds, too.
Greg Monroe had seventeen points in his highest-scoring game of the season against his former team.
That’s back-to-back losses for Toronto for the first time all season. This will be its second game against Boston this season. The Raptors won the first matchup at home on October 19, 113–101.
Leonard scored thirty-one points in that game, though he needed twenty-five shots to do it. Serge Ibaka was the Raptors’ real weapon. He scored twenty-one points on just fourteen shots.
In fact, Ibaka has been the second-highest scorer on the Raptors so far with over seventeen per game. He and Al Horford match up well but I’d be surprised if Ibaka got the best of Horford for a second time and in Boston.
Boston beat up on the Bulls on Wednesday night. All five starters scored in double-figures and none of them needed to play more than thirty minutes to do so.
Terry Rozier did play thirty minutes and scored a dozen off the bench. Brad Stevens is making a concentrated effort to give Rozier as many minutes as he can. It has to feel good to let Rozier have at it and give Kyrie Irving plenty of rest. It’s all part of the long-term vision for Boston.
Horford only had to play twenty on Wednesday so he’ll be ready to bring it against Toronto in this one. Boston should be a lot better at home against the Raptors the second time around. I’m expecting a quality win.

I like the Celtics, not in a blowout, but in a sure and steady win to fire back at Toronto, which has been dominating the Atlantic Division in the early stages of the season.
