The Toronto Raptors will be going on the road on Sunday night to face the Phoenix Suns in a game that will feature two of the top five offenses in the NBA. In late November, the Raptors were able to beat the Suns 104-100 at home.
The Raptors lost their second game in a row on Friday night when they were blown out 126-105 by the Golden State Warriors on the road. They turned the ball over 15 times in that loss and were outrebounded 45-37 by the Warriors.
Through 33 games, the Raptors are one of the top scoring teams in the NBA, but they have also given up over 100 points per game. Veteran Lou Williams has come off of the bench this season to average 14.9 points and 1.1 steals per game.
On Friday night, the Suns snapped their two-game losing streak by defeating the Philadelphia 76ers 112-96 at home. They had a 41-35 rebounding advantage in that win and ended up making 50 percent of their shots.
So far this season, the Suns have averaged over 105 points per game, but they are in the bottom half of the league in assists and points allowed. Shooting guard Goran Dragic is currently the team's top scorer by averaging 16.7 points per game, while their top rebounder is Markieff Morris with nearly six boards per game.
