Toronto Raptors sent the Phoenix Suns with a 126-113 victory to book their fourth straight win at the Air Canada Center.
The Raptors’ All-Stars Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points each to guide their team into a successful win, leading five other players in double figures.
“It makes it a lot easier, which makes it a lot more fun. Everybody gets a chance to touch the ball. You don’t necessarily got to work so hard. Everybody gets a feel for the ball, everybody gets to make the next decision for your teammate, and with that, we still miss a lot of shots, but it’s something we’re still learning and something we’re still trying to get better at every time we practise, every time we play.” DeRozan expressed
Lowry has also added 10 assists while DeRozan booked eight.
“When you’re making shots, it’s good, and the confidence we all have in each other to take shots and to give the opportunity to shoot the ball and we don’t care, it’s always good. 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.” Lowry stated
Serge Ibaka added 19 points for Toronto and OG Anunoby finished the game with 16 points while CJ Miles chipped in 15. Fred VanVleet and Jakob Poeltl each had 13.
Meanwhile, for the first time in Raptors history, the organization allowed zero offensive rebounds against their opponent.
For the Suns, Devin Booker led his team with 19 points in 4-of-15 shooting but was carried off the court in about three minutes to play of the fourth quarter with strained left adductor or groin injury.
