Raptors @ Celtics Game Preview

Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors played their worst game of the season on Monday, losing by 16 points at home to the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans exposed some paint defence problem that could plague the Raptors when they play teams with elite big men. Still, one loss after busy stretch against a perennial MVP candidate is no reason to worry.

Boston Celtics

Despite the talent on the Boston Celtics, the team has been very sluggish to start the season. At 7-6 through their first 13 games, the Celtics need to go 53-16 over the rest of the season to go over their preseason win totals.

Game Snippet

The Celtics and Raptors are currently co-favourites to win the Eastern Conference. While the Celtics (once they get going and figure out the best lineups to play) probably have more talent than the Toronto Raptors overall, the Raptors have gone 9-4 against their Atlantic Division rivals since the 2015-16 season.

Raptors @ Celtics Game Prediction

Game Predictions

The Boston Celtics will try to even up the season series when they host the Toronto Raptors on Friday night. The Raptors have had the upper hand in this rivalry since Brad Stevens took over as Boston’s head coach. Stevens is 7-14 against Toronto in his career and never winning more than two games against Toronto in a single season.

The Celtics need a win against the Raptors to keep within distance of them for the top spot in the Eastern Conference as well as keeping tiebreaking scenarios alive in case the two teams tie at the end of the season. So the question remains, what team is worth the money on Friday night.

For once, it might be a good strategy to lay some money against the Toronto Raptors. The Boston Celtics need a big win, after a lacklustre month to start the season (which concluded with an embarrassing road loss to the Portland Trailblazers). Stevens needs to make some adjustments and with the lowly Chicago Bulls on the docket this week, before they play Toronto, there is a chance for Stevens to make some changes and try out some new lineups with more energy.

While the lineup changes may not yield great success in the long run, a few moves to shake things up could help the team right now. Pick the Boston Celtics to win at home against the Toronto Raptors in a low-scoring (bet on the under when it becomes available) game.
