Despite being without All-Star guard Devin Booker for the whole of the stretch, the Suns won for the sixth time in seven games. In a game that saw 16 lead changes and 5 ties, neither side held an advantage of more than 10 points. The Raptors were behind by nine points to begin the second half, but in the first 2 1/2 minutes of the third quarter, they scored 12 unanswered baskets to go ahead 65-62. Toronto went into the fourth with a lead of 84-82.
From that point on, the game was closely contested until Phoenix began to pull away in the closing minutes. With 1:30 remaining, Chris Paul made a critical 3-pointer to give the Suns a 106-102 lead. With 51.4 seconds left, Ayton scored a tip-in to increase the lead to 108-102. Late in the fourth, Bridges made a pair of mid-range jump shots to give the Suns a jolt.
