Pascal Siakam is averaging 21.5 points and 5 assists, while Fred VanVleet is averaging 21.5 points and 4.5 rebounds.

Devin Booker is averaging 25.6 points and 5.2 rebounds, while Deandre Ayton is averaging 16.8 points and 10 rebounds.

The Raptors are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 5-0 in Raptors last 5 overall. The over is 23-9 in Suns last 32 games playing on 1 days rest. The Raptors are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Phoenix and 7-20-1 ATS in the last 28 meetings.
The Toronto Raptors have been on the struggle bus these last few weeks, and we need to see the offense pick things up before I can start backing them against some of the better teams in the league. The Phoenix Suns got Booker back in the mix, and they return home, where they win by an average of 8.5 points. The Suns also win in the favorite role by an average of 9.4 points. We're not being asked to lay anything crazy here. Give me the Suns and the reasonable chalk.
