The doubleheader gets started at 7:00PM Eastern Time over on ESPN as the Detroit Pistons will play host to the Boston Celtics. The Boston Celtics enter play with a record of 35-42. They hold the final playoff spot in the Eastern conference by just one game to the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat and are up 1 ½ games over the eleventh seed Charlotte Hornets. The race for the final Eastern conference spot is tight and with five games remaining each game is huge. Since losing Brandon Jennings to a season long injury the Pistons sank out of the playoff race in the Eastern conference. They are hopelessly out of contention down five games with five to play to Boston and with three teams ahead of them it’s pretty much academic there won’t be any postseason play for the Pistons. The Celtics are not a very good offensive team and they are in the bottom half of the NBA in defensive field goal defense by allowing 45% shooting to opponents. Boston had to win games by rebounding, getting to the free throw line and winning the turnover margin. A nice pickup for Boston has been Isaiah Thomas traded from the Phoenix Suns to pick up scoring. Thomas now leads the Celtics in scoring at 19 points a game and is an excellent free throw shooter making 85% from the charity stripe.

The late night game on ESPN tips off at 9:30PM Eastern Time as the Dallas Mavericks is home to the Phoenix Suns. Phoenix enters play with a mark of 39-38 and with five games remaining the team sits three games back of the Oklahoma City Thunder for the final playoff berth. Dallas most likely will finish in the seventh seed in the Western conference. The Mavericks have lost four of five games as the defense has been poor. Dallas has given up an average of 116 points per game over their past four games. Phoenix will be on a back to back in this spot after playing at Atlanta on Tuesday.
