Following their win against the 76ers the night before, the Suns looked to continue their momentum as they traveled to Toronto to face the Raptors.

At one point late in the first quarter of Monday night's game in Philadelphia, Devin Booker was shooting 2-of-11 from the field.

But more telling was the fact seven Raptors scored in double figures. He dropped Toronto sophomore center Jakob Poeltl in the third quarter with a sleek crossover dribble near the baseline before making a nice assist to teammate Alex Len, who finished with a dunk. "Everybody gets a chance to touch the ball, you don't necessarily got to work so hard". Serge Ibaka scored 19 points and OG Anunoby matched his career high with 16 as Toronto won its fourth straight and seventh in a row at home. "As long as we keep the confidence going and make plays, we're all going to look good, we're always going to have the high-assist games". Zillgitt also noted that the Sixers can easily free up the necessary salary cap space to sign him. Preliminary tests showed Booker strained his left adductor while playing defense with 2:40 left in the fourth quarter.

The margin reached 19 before a Suns surge cut the lead to 10 on a 3-pointer by Jared Dudley with 8:44 to play.

The Suns, who've played on back-to-back nights seven times already this season, were coming off a 115-101 win at Philadelphia on Monday.

Lowry pushed Toronto's lead to 14 when he made a 3-pointer with 5:18 left. Toronto took a 36-23 advantage into the second.

While the Sixers would get it close in the fourth, Booker decided he'd had enough with his team up 11 and a little over three minutes remaining.

DeRozan led the way with 12 points in the Raptors' red-hot third quarter. The Raptors will start a four-game trip Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies. The 20-year-old from Kansas has endured efficiency issues while his team scuffles considerably and, while it is far too early to begin writing him off from a big-picture perspective, Jackson has largely operated outside of the national consciousness when compared to the other top-tier players in the group.
