All good things come to an end.

The Toronto Raptors learned that on Monday night with a humbling loss at the hands of the Denver Nuggets. There's no time to mope about it as Toronto returns to action on Tuesday against the Phoenix Suns.

Phoenix has dropped off a cliff since the last time these teams met as Eric Bledsoe has been lost to a severe injury and coach Jeff Hornacek has been relieved of his duties. Sometimes a wounded animal is the most dangerous, so the Raptors can't take anything for granted.
