The Phoenix Suns may be slumping right now, 1-5 SU and ATS in their past six, but a meeting against the Toronto Raptors could be exactly was they need to straighten themselves out. The Suns are 17-4 SU in the last 21 games against the Raptors, and have covered in four of the past five against Toronto.
Any semblance of a defense the Suns had this season, which was not much, has been exposed during their current four-game losing skid. Phoenix has averaged 107.5 points per game in their last four, but has allowed opponents to score a ridiculous 118.8 points.
While the Suns defense is trending downwards, the Raptors is heating up. During a four-game winning streak, the Raptors are allowing a mere 88 points per game. Offensively, the Raps have been leaning heavily on Kyle Lowry during their winning streak, with the point guard averaging 23 points per game.
