Raptors Knock Off Suns, Maintain NBA's Top Home Record

Devin Booker dances on the 76ers’ home court. You can do that when you go nova. More

Interim Suns coach Jay Triano said he's unsure of the severity of Booker's injury.

- The Phoenix Suns are heading home from their season-high six-game trip anxious about the health of star guard Devin Booker. "I know there's more things I have to work on", Booker told reporters.

Coming off a 46-point outburst against the 76ers on Monday, Booker finished with 19 points and eight assists in 39 minutes.

Seven Raptors reached double figures, with DeMar DeRozan (20 points, 8 assists) and Kyle Lowry (20 points, 10 assists) leading the way as usual.

"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", Lowry said. The Suns have won the past two meetings between the teams in Toronto.
