Boston Celtics Betting

The Boston Celtics are coming in this game on a 3-3 on their wins and losses and they wish to get into a winning record after this game against the Detroit Pistons. They were defeated by three points, 93-96 and that prevented them from entering a winning streak. Jayson Tatum was the team’s best scorer with 28 points along with six boards, two assists, and three triples. Jaylen Brown followed with 25 points, nine rebounds, three steals, and two blocks while Marcus Smart shot only 5-of-14 from the field to finish with only 13 points. The team had a total of 19 turnovers and that hurt them in the end.

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons snapped a four-game skid with a nail-biting win over the Boston Celtics. Jerami Grant looks to be fitting in the role as their go-to scorer as he tallied 24 points, four boards, and two three-pointers. Rookie Saddiq Bey had his best game so far and he was one huge factor in the win with 17 points, seven rebounds, and five three-pointers. Derrick Rose came off the bench with 17 points while Mason Plumlee cleaned the glass with 17 rebounds. The emergence of Bey was a good sign for the team and he should be given another chance at the starting spot against Boston.
