The Phoenix Suns and the Toronto Raptors collide at the Scotiabank Arena on Wednesday night. Here’s a Celtics vs Heat Prediction.

Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns have been in red-hot form as they've won nine of their last 11 games overall and they will be eager to build on a seven-game win streak after sneaking past the Knicks in a 116-113 road win on Sunday. Devin Booker led the team with 28 points and 11 assists, Eric Gordon added 25 points on nine of 13 shooting while Jordan Goodwin chipped in with 14 points, seven rebounds and five assists off the bench. As a team, the Suns shot 46 percent from the field and 16 of 38 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 34 points in the first quarter to jump out to an early 15-point lead, but they couldn't hold off the Knicks and needed some late heroics from Booker down the stretch to escape with the narrow win without Kevin Durant or Bradley Beal in the lineup.

  • Jusuf Nurkic ranks 8th in the Western Conference amongst qualified players for rebounds per game (9.1) this season.

Toronto Raptors

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been in a bit of a rut as they've lost five of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting routed by the Nets in a 115-103 road loss last night. Pascal Siakam led the team with 17 points and 10 rebounds, Scottie Barnes tallied 17 points with 11 rebounds and six assists while Dennis Schroder tallied 14 points with nine assists. As a team, the Raptors shot just 38 percent from the field and 13 of 36 from the 3-point line as they traded with the Nets in a tight contest until the Nets closed the final 1:55 on a 12-3 run to snatch the game from them in a disappointing finish.

Toronto Raptors Player Facts

  • Jakob Poeltl ranks 1st amongst qualified players for FG% (72.2%) this season.
  • Dennis Schroder ranks 12th amongst qualified players for assists per game (6.6) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Raptors rank 29th in the league for free throw percentage this season (72.2%).
  • The Raptors rank 4th in the league for assists per game this season (28.1).
  • The Suns rank 1st in the league for blocks per game this season (7.2).
  • The Suns rank 2nd in the league for three-point percentage this season (39.3%).

Peter's Pick

The Suns are still shorthanded with Bradley Beal still out and Kevin Durant listed as questionable, while the Raptors are still without Christian Koloko due to an illness. The Suns have been one of the hottest teams in the league and they were good enough to outlast the Knicks on Sunday despite missing Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal, while the Raptors have been struggling lately and will have to take on the Suns on zero days' rest following last night's poor loss to the Nets. This is a big opportunity for the Raptors to take down the Suns while they're shorthanded, but I'd still rather go with Devin Booker and the Suns at the short line on the road.

Peter’s Pick Phoenix -2.5
