On Friday morning, Detroit Pistons will visit Boston Celtics at TD Garden aiming to extend the NBA record for the longest losing streak to 28.

Boston Celtics

The Celtics have been showing impressive results, winning 11 out of the last 13 matches, and are eager to continue their three-match victory streak following a convincing victory over Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas with a scoreline of 126:115. Kristaps Porzingis made a significant contribution to this victory, scoring 28 points, 11 rebounds and 2 blocks, while Jason Tatum added 25 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists. Jaylen Brown also put in a good performance, scoring 19 points, while Derrick White and Jrue Holiday contributed 18 points each.
The Celtics had a high shooting percentage in this match, converting 50% of their field goals and 13 out of 42 from the three-point line. The third quarter was particularly successful as the team scored 41 points, pulling significantly ahead on the scoreboard.

Boston won 8 out of the last 9 games and returns home after a successful four-match away series, which included an overtime loss to Golden State Warriors and victories over Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Clippers.
Jrue Holiday pointed out that the team has found its rhythm and is performing well due to their offensive potential. Jason Tatum, the Celtics' leading scorer with 26.9 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, emphasised that everyone is working towards the common success and strength of the team, expressing hope that it will eventually bear fruit.

Detroit Pistons

The Pistons are in a difficult situation and are hoping to avoid a 28th consecutive loss following a disappointing match against Brooklyn Nets which they lost 112:118. In this game, Cade Cunningham scored 41 points, made 9 rebounds and 5 assists, successfully shooting 15 out of 21 attempts. Bojan Bogdanovic added 23 points, while Alec Burks contributed from the bench with 15 points.

In the first quarter, the Pistons shot 44% from the field and 9 out of 25 from the three-point line, but the Nets were able to pull ahead by 14 points and recapture the lead before halftime. Towards the end of the game, Pistons were back in front, but in the fourth quarter the Nets made a decisive 13:0 run. Earlier, Detroit Pistons had lost to Atlanta Hawks, Utah Jazz and Brooklyn Nets twice. On average, the Pistons score 109.3 points at 46.5% shooting and concede 120.8 points at 48.8% shooting. Cade Cunningham averages 23 points and makes 4.1 rebounds, and Bojan Bogdanovic averages 19.9 points and makes 2.5 assists. Detroit Pistons shoot 33.5% from beyond the arc and 78.8% from the free-throw line, while conceding 37.9% of shots from beyond the arc and getting 43.3 rebounds per game.

Boston Celtics - Detroit Pistons match prediction

Detroit's Isaiah Stewart is out, but even Chauncey Billups in top form along with Rasheed Wallace would likely be no help - the Pistons are hopeless. Meanwhile, there are doubts about the participation of Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum of Boston Celtics. Pistons put forth a decent performance in their last match against Brooklyn Nets and could have won if Cunningham had received more effective support from his teammates. On the contrary, the Celtics are in good shape and, in my opinion, stand a good chance of securing a smashing victory in the upcoming encounter, even if they decide to rest key players.
