The Toronto Raptors have run out of excuses.

The days of blaming injuries, blown calls and a tough schedule are over.

Unless their hope is to #FailForShabazz, this team needs to start winning, and winning now. Tonight's match up is against a struggling Suns team, and would be a good time to end their brutal 6 game losing streak.

The Suns have lost 5 of their last 8 games, including getting blown out by 40 points (40 POINTS!!) at the hands of the Pistons on Wednesday. I guess the Raptors can brag about losing to them by just 1.

Phoenix's defense has been their biggest problem all season, and may be the cure to a Raptors offense that has struggled to put up points of late.

The Raptors have played well in each of their games in the ACC, with 2 of their 3 wins coming in their hometown. If they can continue that trend, this is a very winnable game for the 3-13 Dinos.
