*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Tuesday, April 4th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Wednesday, April 5th.
Tuesday the Raptors bench showed up as they swept the season series versus the Hornets. Will Barton was back on the court after a brief ankle injury and was lights out hitting six 3-pointers.
The reserves carried the perimeter scoring connecting on 11 of the 15 made triples as Chris Boucher hit three and Precious Achiuwa added two. However, the win didn’t change the standings as the Hawks defeated the Bulls despite not having Trae Young on the court.
On offense, the Raptors score 113.1 points per game ranking 22nd while shooting 45.9% from the field and 33.6% from the perimeter ranking 26th and 28th respectively.
Meanwhile, defensively, the Raptors allow 111.7 points per game ranking fifth best with opponents shooting 49.1% from the field and 37.6% from deep ranking 28th in both efficiency categories.
To summarize the injury report…
- Otto Porter Jr., SF (OUT for season, — foot)
- Gary Trent Jr. SG (questionable—back spasms)
Like the Raptors, the Celtics are completing a back-to-back set having faced a much tougher opponent in the 76ers. The combination of Boston losing and Milwaukee winning lowers the magic number to one for the Bucks to clinch the Eastern Conference top seed.
While the Raptors limited their starting core minutes under 30 (other than Siakam who played 35) the Celtics core logged significant minutes with White (40), Tatum (38), and Horford (35) all playing extended time.
On the positive side, Boston claims the second-best point production averaging 118.4 points per game. In terms of efficiency, they shoot 47.6% from the field and 37.7% from the perimeter ranking 15th and sixth respectively.
Presently, opponents average 111.8 points per game which rank sixth. Celtics opponents are limited to 46.4% from the field and 34.9% from the perimeter which ranks fifth in both categories.
To summarize the injury report…
- Danilo Gallinari, SF (OUT indefinitely — ACL)
- Jaylen Brown S (questionable—back)
- GPG (questionable— ankle)
- Robert Williams III C (OUT —hamstring/rest)
- Payton Pritchard PG (questionable—heel)

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Although the Celtics aren’t technically out of the running to win the top seed, the Bucks are likely to clinch needing just one win. Additionally, the 76ers win doesn’t alter the two/three seeds because Boston won the series 3-1 so Philly can tie them but would lose the tiebreak.
That factor could impact these next two games especially since Joe Mazzulla knows how physical the Raptors are and might not want to risk exposing his core to the possibility of getting injured with just three games left to play.
Boston is 10-3 in second games of back-to-back sets (although they’re 2-3 in the last 5) while the Raptors are 4-7 in second games.
