The Toronto Raptors can’t string together good performances, and now they’re on the end of a back to back, which doesn’t help. The Phoenix Suns are one of the hottest teams in the league with 7 straight wins and the defense is starting to trend up. Of course, we need to see the status of Durant and that foot issue before locking anything in, but you can argue this line should be steeper. I’ll lay the bucket with the Suns on the road.
