The Toronto Raptors are looking to stay atop the Eastern conference standings. The Raptors have won four in a row, with their most recent win coming at home against Charlotte, 103-98. The Detroit Pistons are looking lost right now, and have dropped out to the 10th spot in the Eastern Conference.
The last time the the Raptors and Pistons took the floor against each other, was February 26th. The Raptors got the win, 123-94. Toronto has won four straight against the Pistons.
The Toronto Raptors are looking like the team to beat in the East right now. The Raptors are winners of four in a row. Toronto looks like they are rounding out at the right time of the season. After beating the Hornets 103-98, the Raptors must take care of the struggling Pistons.
DeMar DeRozan is arguable the biggest reason his team sits in the number one seed in the East right now. DeRozan is averaging 23.7 points per game this year. His play on both sides of the court has gone unseen. Largely because he plays in Toronto. He recently opened up about depression.
DeRozan and the Raptors are usually a top four seed in the East, making them one of the best regular season teams in the NBA. Expect the Raptors to continue winning games, and be the best team in the East during the first 82 games of the year. We all know the playoffs are a different story.
Throughout the years, the Raptors seem to go missing when the games matter the most. Esepcially the Raptors Kyle Lowry. Lowry has at times looked like he has forgotten how to play basketball in the postseason. Making it baffling at times to watch him play when it matters most.
Toronto is one of the best regular season teams in the NBA. Expect a big game from the Raptors back court in this game. Kyle Lowry will have 20 or more in this one.
The Detroit Pistons roster sounded like one of the best rosters in basketball after the Blake Griffin trade. Now that seems like a joke at a bar. The Pistons have dropped nine of their last 11 games. The Pistons seem like they are at a crossroads in their season and their poor play is definitely showing.
The Pistons were last beaten by the Cavaliers, 112-90. Detroit allowed Larry Nance Jr to have a career night dropping 22 points. Blake Griffin scored 25 points, but they all seemed meaningless. The Pistons were beaten so badly, LeBron James and the Cavaliers were able to rest the fourth quarter.
Detroit is is allowing 104.1 points per game this season. Good enough to rank the Pistons 9th in points allowed this season. If the Pistons are going to challenge to make the playoffs, the team must play better on the offensive side of the court. Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin do a good job at protecting the painted area.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
The Raptors should not have any issues handling the Pistons on the road. Look for a big game from the Raptors All Stars Lowry and DeRozan.
Detroit is reeling right now. The team can’t score or defend like most have expected them to do. Seems to me like there could be a locker room issue ruining team chemistry.
