The Phoenix Suns (11-7) snapped their seven-game win streak with a 112-105 loss to the Toronto Raptors (9-10) tonight.

Even with this being the second night of a back to back for Toronto, they played stifling defense all night, specifically on Devin Booker and Kevin Durant. Booker only had eight points on 2-of-12 shooting, while Durant did have 30 points, but also took 30 shots, connecting on only 11 of them. The Suns, normally a very good three-point shooting team, were 7-of-26 (26.9%) from deep as a team tonight.

Fans were very puzzled by the stars’ performances.

However, Booker was seemingly playing through injury after rolling his ankle early in the third quarter, but deciding to tough it out. Some fans did not like to see their star player clearly injured on the court.

We will see if Booker’s injury will keep him out for any of Phoenix’s upcoming games. The Suns will next play the defending champion Denver Nuggets at home Friday night.

Stay tuned for updates.
