It’s game on in the Eastern Conference.
So many things left undecided with the season coming to a close and a crucial matchup between the Raptors and Celtics gets set to come to form.
Boston continues their four way battle for the 3rd seed while Toronto is putting all the pressure on the Cavaliers for that top spot in the East.
The Raptors have hung around all season long in the East and while the drama continues to surround the Cavaliers, Toronto is just inching ever so close to that top spot.
Toronto actually opened Monday just 1.0 game and saw Cleveland struggling against Denver before they pulled away late, pushing the East lead to 1.5 games. Still, Toronto is back to their winning ways, winning 4 in a row and playing some of their best basketball on the season.
Winners of 7 of their last 8 overall, Toronto can set a franchise record for wins in a single season with a victory over Boston here. The Raptors have been led all season long by Kyle Lowry, who continues to put up unreal numbers.
Lowry, who was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week, has been averaging 27.2 points and 6.8 assists in five games.
Toronto, which opens a 3 game road trip that will decide a lot for that 1 seed, is a solid 20-13 SU away from Canada this year.
Boston had their reins on the 3rd spot for quite some time this year, but a bad timed losing streak has put them back into a giant race with 3 other teams for 3rd place.
Currently, Boston sits in the 5th spot, but tied with both Atlanta and Miami, 9.5 games back of 1st place.
Boston has righted the ship a bit, winning 2 in a row, thanks to Isaiah Thomas, who like Lowry, is putting up some unreal numbers. Thomas has gone for 20 or more points in 10 games this month and is averaging 26.5 points per game in March.
Boston has had it’s share of struggles with the Raptors however. They have dropped 3 straight meetings, by an average of 10 points.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
This is such a crucial game for both teams. Yes, Toronto does have that two seed locked up, but home court advantage throughout would be a huge ordeal for this team .
On Boston side of things, a loss or two in a row could easily throw them all the way back to 6th.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick:
It’s the visitors who come in here with the advantage. Toronto is on a mission right now and behind Kyle Lowry, this is one they grab on the road, continuing to put the pressure on Cleveland.
