DET vs BOS Dream11 Team Prediction Basketball, NBA Regular Season, Detroit Pistons vs Boston Celtics, 4 January

DET VS BOS Dream11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: DET vs BOS Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Pistons will take on Celtics in a back-to-back scenario after defeating them in the first match-up. That win marked the first win for Detroit this season, and they will look to build some momentum and carry it forward.  Pistons don’t possess much depth at the Point Guard position and Boston is also shorthanded at the position in absence of Kemba Walker. While Detroit has had a tough start to the season, it hasn’t been all roses for the Celtics either who have won three out of their 6 games so far. For Pistons, Blake Griffin didn’t participate in the matchup against the Celtics because of the concussion protocol. Celtics would like to get revenge in this game and get their gears going.

DET vs BOS Dream11 Match Prediction
Boston Celtics have more depth and weapons than the Pistons in the long run. However, they are coming off a fresh loss against the Detroit Pistons, and have been inconsistent so far in the young season. Detroit beat Celtics with a depleted unit after losing their first four match-ups. Celtics will be hungry to get a win in the back-to-back fixture. Celtics require production from the likes of Daniel Theis to solidify their big-man output, and it is at the end that Celtics seem to be struggling a lot. Pistons will look to hone more talent in that department themselves and build something substantial before the season ends. This game may favor Boston Celtics as they are unlikely to lose back to back games against the Detroit Pistons.

Detroit Pistons vs Boston Celtics, Key Players:
Jaylen Brown
PPG: 27.5
RPG: 5.2
SPG: 2.0
Brown is having a dreamlike start to the season and has been racking up impressive scoring numbers game in and game out. He registered 25 points, 9 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 blocks in the matchup against the Detroit Pistons and will look to accentuate his scoring output even further on the back-end of this back-to-back matchup with Pistons. He will be an interesting Super-Player selection for the Dream11 Fantasy basketball match-up.
Jayson Tatum
PPG: 24.3
RPG:  7.8
APG: 3.0
Tatum is having a stellar season so far and Boston will expect more of the same from a talent like him. He and Jaylen Brown have formed a dynamic guard-forward combo and are becoming 25+PPG scorers on a regular basis. Jayson had a terrific night in the loss against the Detroit Pistons, where he lodged 28 points, 6 rebounds, 1 steal, and 1 block. He will look to replicate such a performance and get revenge against the Pistons.
Jerami Grant
PPG: 23.0
RPG: 5.6
BPG: 1.4
Jerami has taken the mantle of being the primary scorer for the Pistons. The dynamic Forward has risen his game to reach new dimensions and has started off well in the season. He mustered 24 points, 4 rebounds, and 1 steal in the win against the Celtics and has looked like a solid player this season. The Pistons will need more out of him in the subsequent games.
Blake Griffin
PPG: 16.3
RPG: 6.0
SPG: 1.3
Blake-G has lost his star status in recent years and his performances have dwindled. Despite those receding numbers, he is still an above-average Forward and even after losing for former athleticism, he is well equipped to score. He didn’t participate in the match-up against the Celtics, but in his last outing against the Warriors, he had 8 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists.

Sleeper picks:
Derrick Rose: The former MVP is not the same player anymore but still can contribute as a bench scorer. He is averaging an impressive 15.0 PPG and 5.3 APG in his bench role and will look to keep contributing to cover the dearth at the Guard spot.
Josh Jackson: Jackson has improved ever since coming to the Detroit Pistons, and he is averaging 16.0 PPG and 5.2 RPG.
Marcus Smart: The defensive guard has been a pest at the end yet again, and is averaging 11.8 PPG, 6.2 APG, and 1.8 SPG.

NoteMason Plumlee leads Detroit Pistons in rebounds and steals with 11.2 RPG and 1.6 SPG.
Robert Williams III leads the Celtics in blocks with 1.6 BPG.
Saddiq Bey had 17 points and 7 rebounds in the win against the Celtics.
