Suns 121, Raptors 113

Gerald Green scored 28 points off the bench as the Suns defeated the Toronto Raptors.

With the victory, Phoenix (38-28) swept the season series with Toronto (37-27) and snapped the Raptors' four-game home winning streak.

Raptors guard Kyle Lowry finished with a team-high 28 points but appeared to hurt his neck after taking a knee to the head from Suns forward PJ Tucker with 1:36 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Lowry was checked on the bench during a timeout and remained in the game.

Martin scored a game-high 31 points and Kevin Love added 26 points and 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves (33-32), who won for the third time in the last four home games to keep their own wafer-thin playoff hopes alive.
