The Raptors come into Wednesday night looking for a bounceback win following a disappointing 23-point loss to the Bulls on March 14. Toronto is still dealing with a few key players being out due to injuries and COVID-19 protocol in OG Anunoby and Fred VanVleet.
The Raptors mustered only 95 points against the Bulls on Sunday, but Toronto will have a much better chance of keeping things close against a Detroit squad that has an offensive rating of 108, which ranks 24th out of 30 teams in the league per NBA Advanced Stats.
The Pistons are also trending down — they’re losers of four of five games. Their last win was actually over the Raptors.
Although the Raptors laid an egg against the Pistons on March 3, it’s important to note that Toronto was without many key players in that matchup, including leading rebounder Pascal Siakam.
Siakam and several other Raptors are out of COVID-19 protocols and cleared to play, meaning Toronto could look more like the dangerous playoff team of yesteryear on Wednesday night. Our PRO Report backs up that idea, let’s take a look.
