Raptors vs. Pistons: Watch NBA online, live stream, TV channel, time, odds, picks, analysis

The first time the Pistons played the Raptors this season, they came away with a dramatic victory -- one their head coach, Dwane Casey, was certainly ecstatic to get over his old team.

When they meet again on Sunday evening, Casey and Pistons won't be focused so much on revenge, but rather picking up a crucial win as they try to hold on to a playoff spot in the East.

It's just a two-team race now for the top spot in the East, and the Raptors will need to take care of the Pistons if they want to close to within a game and a half of the Bucks.

A big reason for their turnaround has been the improved play of Andre Drummond , who is putting together one of the best stretches of his career.

This is a pretty small line for a Raptors team that is far superior to the Pistons, but that's due in large part to the absence of Leonard, who is sitting out to rest.

The Raptors still have plenty of talent, but with Leonard out, and the Pistons drawing some extra inspiration from their playoff chase, I'm going to ride with the home team.
