Phoenix and Toronto lost in their 3 last matches. But on March 3th, the teams will play among themselves as part of the NBA championship. Rivals in the upcoming full-time confrontation present different conferences, and their tasks during the season are completely different. This is easily confirmed by the standings. The hosts are at the bottom of the West, and the guests are among the leaders of the East. Which team will interrupt their unsuccessful series? Don’t miss our prediction.

Tuesday March 3th, 2020 at 9:00 PM ET. Talking Stick Resort Arena (201 E Jefferson St, Phoenix, AZ 85004, US).

Toronto Raptors

The Canadian club is still holding the second line of the Eastern Conference, but Boston has come close. The guys Nick Ners also lost three times in a row, thereby complicating their lives.

Toronto failed to do anything with the Milwaukee attack (97:108), sensationally lost to Charlotte (96:99) and was defeated by Denver (118:133). The reigning champion should reconsider his strategy, otherwise the recession may drag on, all the more Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka, Fred Vanvleet and Duan Hernandez flew out of the cage, so there is far from an easy test.

The Raptors are still in the 2nd position of the conference. At the same time, the team lost in 3 last matches of the championship. In total, the team accounted for 70% of matches won. In its last game, which took place on the road, the club rival was Denver. Raptors players couldn’t win in any of the quarters of the match. The fight ended with the score (133:118), in favor of Denver. Before that, Toronto lost to Charlotte and Milwaukee.

Phoenix Suns

Suns are one of the three outsiders of the Western Conference and that says it all. For some reason, the wards of Monty Williams can’t gather their strength, while even in the home arena the game is not glued.

Phoenix lost three games in a row, which generally does not go into any goal. Unfortunately, Kelly Aubrey and Frank Kaminsky will not be able to help the team in the match against Toronto, and these are serious losses, given that you will have to meet with the current NBA champion. Say what you like, but the owners need to give all the best.

Not often pleases the team of their fans. This season, the team won only 39% of matches. These results allow the team to occupy only 13th place in the conference. In the last game of the tournament, the Phoenix hosted the Golden State. Suns won the first half of the match with a score of (65:61). Extremely weak team spent the second half of the match and missed their advantage. The match ended with a score of (99:115), in favor of the Golden State. This match was preceded by defeats from Detroit and Clippers.

Raptors vs Suns Prediction

In our opinion, the Phoenix will play more aggressively in the attack, as some measures need to be taken. Toronto is in a similar situation, though the truth is at the top of the standings. In a word, expect to see an equal game. On average, the match Suns miss almost seven points more than Toronto.
