Raptors vs Celtics Preview and Prediction
Toronto and Boston collide in what could be a playoffs preview on Friday night in the Orlando bubble, with both teams determined to claim bragging rights.
The Raptors are the form team in the NBA coming into this clash and are on a seven-match winning streak, including three in the bubble, registering impressive victories over the Lakers, Heat and Magic.
With points totals of between 100 and 110 in all three of those wins, the Raptors aren’t blowing teams off the court, but they are incredibly solid and tough to break down.
Boston meanwhile have been erratic since the competition restart, combining blistering performances with flat displays.
The Celtics are 2-2 in the bubble, but they are coming off a demolition job over the Brooklyn Nets in their last outing, scoring a season-high 149 points.
It was a true team performance, with Jaylen Brown leading the way with 21 points, while Jayson Tatum needed 19, followed by Gordon Hayward and Robert Williams III with 18 each.
With two wins from their last three games against Toronto and the ability to produce blistering displays like against the Nets, Boston shouldn’t be discounted at all in this showdown.
However, the Raptors have been much more consistent and the Kyle Lowry/Fred VanVleet combo can easily smother the Boston defence.
Toronto are flying at the moment and should be able to wrap up the second seed in the Eastern Conference in this one.
