How Can the Suns Beat the Raptors?

The Phoenix Suns will want to bounce back from a devastating loss to an undermanned Miami Heat team. When they take on the Toronto Raptors, the Suns will need to limit one of the NBA’s most in-form squads.

The Toronto Raptors are on a 6 game winning streak while shooting 45.1% from the field and 37.5% from three. Considering the Suns allowed their opponents to hit 22 three-pointers in their last game, they certainly need to buckle down against the Raptors.

Toronto aren’t lights out from three in the individual sense, so the key for Phoenix will be slowing down Toronto’s playmakers. If Phoenix can slow things down from the point of attack, they’ll be in great position to win this game.

Suns Key Player: (G) Devin Booker


The Phoenix Suns were run out of the building in their last game, but Devin Booker was one of the sole bright spots. Against the Raptors, Booker will need to maintain his effort but improve his efficiency.

In his last game, Booker posted 26 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals in 33 minutes of play. He shot poorly from the field, just 5 of 15 with 3 of his field goals coming from three-point range. Although he offset his poor shooting with aggressive play that led to a 13 of 13 night from the free throw line.

The Toronto Raptors seem an excellent team for Booker to play against, as they love blitzing attackers and leaving shooters wide open. If Booker’s playmaking is as sharp as his attacking instincts, we should see a good game from the Suns All-Star.

How Can the Raptors Beat the Suns?

The Toronto Raptors are on a strong run of form, but they’ll face their biggest test when they take on the Phoenix Suns. One of the best teams in the league, the Raptors need to establish a physical presence early.

In Phoenix’s last game, a loss to an undermanned Miami Heat side, the Suns were bullied out of the game early. Miami’s physical presence opened up the court and the Suns couldn’t recover once the ball started moving. The Suns were outrebounded by 14.

Toronto are one of the league’s smaller teams, but they’re also one of the most athletic. While their shooting isn’t always consistent, they’re more than capable of building themselves an early lead to tame the Suns.

Raptors Key Player: (G) Fred Vanvleet


The Toronto Raptors are on an excellent win streak and much of it has to do with the stellar play of Fred Vanvleet. While he won’t receive the plaudits, Vanvleet’s production speaks for itself.

Over his last 8 games, where the Toronto Raptors are 7-1, Vanvleet is averaging 30.6 points, 7.6 assists, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.0 steals on 47.1% shooting from the field and 45.6% shooting from three. Hitting nearly 6 three-pointers per game, Vanvleet is on fire.

Against a shifty Phoenix Suns defence, Vanvleet’s scoring form will face its greatest test. As the Suns try to lock Vanvleet down on the perimeter, expect a sharp playmaking outing from the All-Star hopeful.
