The Toronto Raptors return home after dropping two straight games on the road. The Raptors lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Nov. 26 and then got rolled over by the Brooklyn Nets on Nov. 28.
Now the Raptors have a date with the hottest team in the NBA the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are starting to hit their stride as they have won their last 7 games in a row, which is tied with the Orlando Magic for the longest active winning streak in the league.
Bradley Beal (back) remains out for the Suns and Kevin Durant is officially listed as questionable due to a foot injury.
As for the Raptors Dennis Schroder appeared to get hurt in the game against the Brooklyn Nets. He had his knees in a wrap on the bench, however he did return to the game. He should be ready to go against the Suns.
The Suns will be led by Devin Booker in this one who has been playing very well since his return from injury. Booker is coming off a masterclass performance of 28 points, 11 assists and 5 rebounds in a win over the New York Knicks. He will be the guy the Raptors need to try and slow down.
Phoenix scores a ton of points. They are 7th in the league in points per game so Toronto will need to do their best to keep up. The Raptors have struggled from the field, from three and free throw line in their last 2 games.
The Raptors split the season series with the Suns last season 1-1.
