The Celtics are coming in this game with hopes to finally end their struggles in the contest, to retain their spot in the standings. From their last six games, they already lost to four, bringing them to be just a game ahead from the second spot. This squad now starts to feel the importance of having Marcus Smart, as he plays a huge role in defense. This season, the Celtics are 7-5 without smart, but 4-4 in his latest injury. On their last match, they fell short against the Suns, in a 106-94 loss. Their top two players also struggled in that game, although they scored a combined 47 points. They are still lucky that they are still able to minimize their turnovers. Celtics are third in offense with 117.7 points per game, and seventh in defense, as they give up 111.9 points per game.

Jayson Tatum, and Jaylen Brown continues to lead the Celtics with 30.9 points and 27 points respectively. However, Luke Kornet remains to be questionable, while Marcus Smart is still out for this game.

This squad is aiming for more wins, just as to at least improve their record, considering that they are at the bottom of the standings. With that aim, their current results hinder them from achieving what they are aiming for. On their last game, they were defeated by the Suns on Sunday, in a 116-110 loss at home. Although there are many people who stepped up in that game, it is still not enough for them to improve their run. As they are currently one of the teams with the worst record in the NBA, it is not surprising that this team is desperate for wins. In fact, they are averaging below average in most categories. In offense, they are the 23rd with 112.5 points per game, and 29th in defense, allowing 119.8 points per game.

Bojan Bogdanovic leads the Pistons with 21.4 points per game. Cade Cunningham is also producing numbers for the Pistons with 19.9 points. However, it is just unfortunate that he will be out for the season due to his injury. Marvin Bagley III is also not available due to a hand surgery.
