What to Know

The Raptors will be in front of their home fans on Wednesday, but a look at the spread shows they might need that home-court advantage. Having just played yesterday, they will get right back to it and host the Phoenix Suns at 7:30 p.m. ET on November 29th at Scotiabank Arena.

On Tuesday, Toronto came up short against Brooklyn and fell 115-103. The defeat unfortunately continues a disappointing trend for the Raptors in their matchups with the Nets: they’ve now lost five in a row.

Meanwhile, the Suns had already won six in a row (a stretch where they outscored their opponents by an average of 11 points), and they went ahead and made it seven on Sunday. Not to be outdone by New York, Phoenix got past New York on a last-second fade away jump shot.

The Suns’ victory was a true team effort, with many players turning in solid performances. Perhaps the best among them was Devin Booker, who dropped a double-double on 28 points and 11 assists. Less helpful for the Suns was Keita Bates-Diop’s abysmal 0-5 three-point shooting.

Toronto’s loss dropped their record down to 8-10. As for Phoenix, they have been performing well recently as they’ve won nine of their last 11 games, which provided a nice bump to their 11-6 record this season.

The Raptors came up short against the Suns when the teams last played back in January, falling 114-106. Will the Raptors have more luck at home instead of on the road? Come back here after the game to find expert analysis of the match and other NBA content.
