Now, the Celtics are flying high, boasting a 55-14 record that has them sitting pretty at the top of the Eastern conference, while the Pistons, well, they’re more like the little engine that couldn’t this season with a 13-56 record. Now, the bookies have set the over/under at 223.5, with the Celtics favored by 13.0. The Pistons are looking to bounce back from a painful 103-122 loss against the Pacers, while the Celtics are still riding high from their 122-119 win over the Bucks.
