Toronto Raptors vs Phoenix Suns prediction

The Phoenix Suns are capable of blowing the doors off here, but they're also 25-35-2 ATS on the season. The Suns are also coming off a massive win over the Nuggets, so there's a bit of a letdown spot here. The Toronto Raptors also don't win games consistently, but they show flashes of competitiveness and are good enough offensively to hang around with teams at times. Also, the Raptors beat the Suns earlier this season in November, for whatever that's worth. This is just a lot of points, and the Suns play the Celtics next, so it's a look ahead spot as well. Give me the Raptors and the points.
