Detroit has beaten the Toronto Raptors in three straight. The Detroit Pistons are playing much better basketball this season. Suddenly they have won seven of their past ten games with two victories in that span coming against the Boston Celtics. The team has picked up the offense as the Pistons average 100 points and 39.7% shooting from three over their past five games. Detroit is getting great production from their young center in Greg Monroe who is averaging over 16 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game this season. He is coming off a nice performance last night at Cleveland as Monroe pulled down 11 boards’ dished seven assists and scored 19 points in 35 minutes of play. Guard Brandon Knight has produced for the Pistons with 19 points a game and 5 assists per game over his past three games. Veterans Tayshaun Prince and Rodney Stuckey still produce for the Detroit Pistons giving this team hope for a franchise turnaround after some very dark years. Forward Jonas Jerebko is contributing off the bench for team with nearly 10 points and a 47.2% shooting percentage. I like the distribution of minutes by Detroit coach Lawrence Frank as the guys who can shoot play and the players who can’t sit on the bench.
It is a disappointing season for the Toronto Raptors who sit at 9-23 on the season. The team is coming off a long layoff as they last played last Friday night so rest can turn into rust for this perimeter shooting team. They are not playing good basketball right now with four straight losses including an ugly horrific defeat at home to the awful Charlotte Bobcats 98-91 on Friday night as a -7 point favorite. Toronto has not defended very well as they have allowed 46.5% shooting to their past five opponents. The Raptors leading scorer Andrea Bargnani, and his 23 points per game remains out of the lineup with a calf injury.
