Summary of 4 articles · Updated Nov 30, 2012
Coming off a lopsided loss in Detroit, the Phoenix Suns looked to bounce back against the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors are a very young team with a great deal of potential, but they are definitely a team the Suns can and should beat. The Raptors’ six-game losing streak and Phoenix’s seven-game winning streak against them in Toronto means little. Though they fell 101-97 to the Raptors, Suns fans can breathe a sigh of relief that the 40-point shellacking Phoenix received earlier this week seems to have left the squad no worse for the wear mentally. "After that game, I think we were all struck by the fact that so many people were leaving our building with a smile on their face," said Jason Rowley, who took over as Suns president in late July. It doesn’t help Gentry that the two captains come off the bench, nor does it help that the oldest players do the same, nor that the two players with the most NBA experience are in the same position.
