Friday, November 2nd brings us NBA action from downtown Phoenix as the Toronto Raptors travel to the desert southwest to take on the Suns at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. The Raptors are coming off a 17 point win Tuesday night against the 76ers, while the Suns lost by 30 at home Wednesday night to the San Antonio Spurs.
Phoenix holds the upper hand in these two teams last 10 head to head matchups winning six out of those 10 games, though I think it would take more than a possible Devin Booker sighting on the court to help them win this one Friday night.
Phoenix will be the first stop on Toronto’s upcoming four game road trip that will also take them to L.A., Utah and Sacramento before they head back home to face the Knicks on the 10th. This offseason’s blockbuster trade seems to be working well for the Raptors, as they are playing above expectations as we head into the second month of season.
Kawhi Leonard had himself a game last time out vs. the Sixers, 31 points, 7 boards, 4 assists and 4 steals. The downfall with having a player like Leonard on your team is that he will almost always sit out one game of a back to back. Kind of ironic that Toronto’s only loss on the year came on Monday night, a game in which Leonard decided not to play in.
Not saying the Raptors need Leonard to win games, they have a very deep roster, but, I’m sure when they pulled the trigger for the deal they assumed Leonard’s game skipping was more of a ploy used by the Spurs, and not by the man himself.
Toronto should have no problems with the Suns, even if Booker does make it back onto the floor. Last time out, the Raptors had six players in double figures in points, and Pascal Siakam had himself a double double with 15 points and 15 boards. This team is way too talented to lose a game on the road to the Suns.
This four game road trip would have to be labeled very unsuccessful if the Raptors don’t return home with at leas three wins.
Things aren’t looking too good these days for the new era of the Phoenix Suns. And it doesn’t appear to get much better anytime soon. As if things weren’t bad enough, the teams leading scorer, Devin Booker has now missed three games and is currently listed as questionable for this Friday night matchup.
TJ Warren led the way Wednesday night against the Spurs with 21 points, rookies Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges added 13 and 16, while another rookie Elie Okobo added 8 points and 5 assists in 28 minutes in a rare start.
Besides Booker, PG Isaiah Canaan is listed as questionable as well for this tilt. We could see another start form Okobo as newly signed Jamal Crawford laid a goose egg in 10 minutes of action Wednesday night against the Spurs. This game could get ugly.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Raptors are 4-4 ATS in their last 8 games
- Suns are 1-1 ATS in their last 2 games at home
- Over Under is 7-3 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Toronto Raptors vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
Even if the Suns do get Booker back Friday night, I don’t think it will make much difference as this Raptors team is just that much better. If both Booker and Canaan sit out once again, the Suns stand no chance whatsoever.
Raptors will run away with this game. It won’t be much of a contest at all. Toronto seems to be fully healthy and available, while the Suns are banged up and relying on too many rookies to run this team at the moment.
