The Phoenix Suns continue their east coast road trip tonight against the Toronto Raptors. The Suns are 2-3 over their last five games, including a win against the 76ers in the last game, 115-101. The Raptors are seven games over .500 ball in the east right now, and are currently in second place in the Atlantic division early in the season.
Last year, the two teams from opposing conferences met twice. The Suns swept the season series, 2-0. Their most recent game was in January, with the Suns winning, 115-103.
The Phoenix Suns are several pieces away from becoming a solid team in the Western conference. The Suns are seven games under .500 right now, and lack veteran leadership in the locker room. Phoenix is 2-2 on their east coast trip. Phoenix recently beat the 76ers by 14 points.
Suns guard Devin Booker was a killer in the win. Booker had 46 points on 17 of 32 shooting from the field and 5 for 8 from three point range, in the 14 point road win. Phoenix wing TJ Warren was hot as well for the Suns. Warren finished with 25 points on 12 of 19 shooting.
Despite last night’s win, the Suns still need a ton of improvement. Offensively, the Phoenix offense is scoring 107 points per game this season. Devin Booker is leading the team in scoring with 24.5 points per game, and TJ Warren is doing good as the second option, scoring 18.7 points per game this year.
Defensively, is where the Suns have been more than bad. The Suns rank 30th in the NBA, allowing 115 points per game this year. A lot of the reason the Suns aren’t playing any defense, is the lack of leadership. Suns head coach Jay Triano looks like he will be the fall guy, and let go at the end of a tanking season.
Aside from the Suns defensive troubles, Phoenix seems like a team that has a lot of division among each other. Expect the Suns to play selfish again tonight.
The Toronto Raptors are the third best team in the Eastern conference right now. Seems like we are singing the same tune about the Raptors every year. Toronto will finish around the top five in the East, then make it to the second round and get destroyed. This season, well things are the same. Toronto fans will have false hope until reality sets in around April.
Toronto is seven games above .500, and most recently beat the Indiana Pacers, 120-115. The Raptors shot 49.5 percent from the field to extend their winning streak to three games. Raptors all star DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors in scoring with 26 points.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Raptors are playing solid, allowing 103 points per game this year. That is good enough for 10th in the NBA this season. Expect Toronto to crank up the intensity at home against Phoenix.
