On Saturday, the Pistons nearly covered the spread as 8.5-point home longshots in a 117-108 defeat to the Boston Celtics. In the absence of previous first-overall pick G Cade Cunningham, G Jaden Ivey, a rookie of Detroit, contributed a season-high 26 points.
The Detroit Pistons are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games.
Monday night’s match was quite difficult for the Toronto Raptors. Because the Toronto squad is managing various key injury issues, the team has been playing without Pascal Siakam, the leading scorer for the Raptors, for five consecutive games. He could not play on Monday because of a right adductor strain. Including Pascal, the Toronto squad was missing Fred VanVleet, Toronto’s main guard; forward Precious Achiuwa, who has an ankle injury; and Gary Trent Jr, Raptor’s shooting guard.
Without Pascal Siakam, the Raptors not have been a similar group; his presence is significant for the team. The Toronto Raptors faced defeat in their past three of four games. Monday’s match against the Pistons was the final of a three-game road trip for the Raptors.
Previously, Detroit Piston has won and canvassed the spread in six successive matches between these two groups in this NBA season. But ultimately, the Toronto Raptors overcame their difficulties and became the match-winner.
