Play     What are Devin Booker's chances at making the All Star team

Booker had 19 points and eight assists before leaving the game. Serge Ibaka scored 19 points and OG Anunoby matched his career high with 16 as Toronto won its fourth straight and seventh in a row at home.

The Raptors (15-7) led by double digits for most of the night and lit it up for 42 points in the third quarter to take a 97-79 advantage into the fourth. He has a strained left adductor and will be further evaluated when the team returns to Phoenix.

Lowry had three three-pointers as part of a 13-point performance in the first quarter, and the Raptors took a 17-point lead on a driving reverse layup by Norman Powell with 33 seconds left in the frame. In short, a crossover from Jackson sent the 7-foot Poeltl flying toward the floor before a attractive drop-off pass to Suns big man Alex Len for a dunk.

After that slow start, Booker made 15 of his last 21 shots to finish with 46 points in the Suns' 115-101 win over the Sixers.

For as improved as Toronto's depth is with the offseason pickup of Miles and development of the young bigs, it's still not going to be easy for the Raptors to compete with Boston or Cleveland come playoff time.

While the Sixers would get it close in the fourth, Booker decided he'd had enough with his team up 11 and a little over three minutes remaining. The Raptors were outscored in a second quarter for the first time in 13 games.

The Raptors led 55-46 at halftime.

NOTES: Suns C Tyson Chandler (rest) did not play Tuesday after recording seven points and 12 rebounds in a season-high 37 minutes Monday during a win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Jackson, however, is going to need plenty of smart plays like that, especially now that he'll be asked by head coach Jay Triano to step up with Booker probably out for some time.

The Raptors play their next four games on the road, starting Friday in Memphis. He suffered the injury on Wednesday night vs. the Washington Wizards.
