Monday, March 29th the Toronto Raptors vs. Detroit Pistons play for the third and final time this season with the Pistons having won both prior matches.
The Pistons hold the all-time record between the squads with 56 victories in 94 meetings. Last season the Raptors swept the three games the teams played.
The Raptors lost their 11th game in 12 outings once again holding a lead and losing it at game end. A 10 point third quarter versus the Blazers certainly didn’t help.
Toronto was shorthanded as two more players are in the health and safety protocol (DeAndre Bembry and Paul Watson) while Kyle Lowry was out nursing a sore foot.
It just seems like this season is mired in constant adversity for the Raptors. As Fred VanVleet said post-game one of these games we’re going to win a close match. It does seem like the Raptors have lost an unusually large number of games at the buzzer.
Pascal Siakam led the way for Toronto with 26 points, eight rebounds, and two assists. Fred VanVleet scored 20 points adding eight assists, five rebounds, and a steal.
OG Anunoby delivered a double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds plus three assists and a steal.
Gary Trent Jr. is still struggling to find his offense since joining the Raptors but his defense and rebounding have impressed his new coach. He finished with six points and seven rebounds but shot 2 of 10 from the field and 1 of 5 from the perimeter.
One positive note was three reserves reached double-figures with Chris Boucher registering a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds, Rodney Hood scored 13 and Stanley Johnson chipped in with 11 points.
Both times the Detroit Pistons played the Raptors this year they’ve benefitted by Toronto being shorthanded. Once again, they’ll get that advantage and also be the rested team having been off since Saturday.
Detroit has lost four games in a row with the most recent occurring on Saturday as they fell 92-106 to the Wizards. Only three Pistons registered double-figure scores.
Wayne Ellington led the way with 15 points hitting five of his 10 perimeter shots. Mason Plumlee amassed 11 points with eight rebounds while Isaiah Steward also scored 11 points.
Jerami Grant left the game Saturday with a quad injury and is listed as day-to-day. Rodney McGruder (elbow) and Dennis Smith Jr. (spine) were both out Saturday and day-to-day. Killian Hayes (hip) and Jahlil Okafor (knee) are both out.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
After losing twice to the Pistons the Raptors aren’t very happy with those losses or how the Pistons reveled in defeating them even though they were playing without three of their top four players. This match has been marked on Toronto’s calendar since the NBA forced them to play instead of postponing the match.
