Sunday Research
By Indiancowboy

Phoenix vs. Toronto

The Suns come off back to back losses here including to the Twolves at home and at Denver on the road. The Suns have lost 4 straight covers and these two teams have not met this year. Note, the Raptors were playing great basketball but ran into the Celtics twice and recently ran into a healthy Bulls team at home. The Raptors also took a loss on the road at Indiana and look to bounce-back here. Despite not having Calderon that has not prevented this team from beating the likes of the Magic (which only a few teams have done at home this year) and the Rockets this year, so who is to say the Raptors can't step up at home after such they come off some road losses as they return home. I can see this either way, but a small lean on the Raps here at home.
