Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors pounce into this evening’s matchup with a 58-22 record that ranks them 1st in the Atlantic Division. On top of that, the Raptors currently have the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference. With a 4-game lead over the second-seeded Boston Celtics, the Raptors have locked up that No. 1 seed in the postseason. Nevertheless, Toronto will be looking to make an affirmation about their dominance in the conference this evening. Tonight’s pairing will mark the 4th time this season these two have faced each other. Since the Raptors are 3-0 on the year, it’s easy to see why Toronto is pegged as the NBA betting online favorite this evening.

Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (23.1 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 5.2 apg), Kyle Lowry (16.2 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 6.8 apg), and Serge Ibaka (12.8 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 0.8 apg).

Detroit Pistons

At 38-42, it’s no understatement to say that Detroit has had a rough season this year. With the end of the season of sight, it’s clear the Pistons will be sitting out of this year’s postseason. All in all, this year marks the second-consecutive losing season Detroit has delivered. Although they made the playoffs two-years ago, the team clearly needs to rebuild. They attempted this this year by trading for Blake Griffin (who will be out this evening) but it was a bit too late to deliver any meaningful results. At least the Pistons can look ahead to next year.

Players to Watch: Andre Drummond (15.0 ppg, 16.0 rpg, 3.0 apg), Reggie Jackson (14.7 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 5.1 apg), and Reggie Bullock (11.3 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 1.5 apg).
