Green, Suns end Raptors' home winning streak
Goran Dragic scored 19 points, Eric Bledsoe had 14 and P.J. Tucker 11 for the Suns, who had lost three of four before winning 87-80 at Boston on Friday.
Bench scoring was a big edge for Phoenix, whose reserves outscored Toronto's 59-11.
Kyle Lowry had 28 points and 13 assists, and Terrence Ross scored 22 points as Toronto lost at home for the first time since a triple-overtime defeat to Washington on Feb. 27, snapping a four-game winning streak at Air Canada Centre.
Lowry briefly received treatment on the court after he was kneed in the head by Tucker during a scramble for a loose ball in the final two minutes. Bledsoe dunked on the play as Lowry was left lying outside the paint, clutching his head. Lowry stayed in the game following a Toronto timeout.
Amir Johnson scored 20 points, DeMar DeRozan had 17 and Jonas Valanciunas 15 as the Atlantic Division-leading Raptors lost for the first time in three games. Toronto had won eight of 10 and 11 of 14 coming in.
The Raptors fell to 14-13 against Western Conference opponents this season. Toronto needs one win in its final three games against the West to ensure its first .500 record against the conference since the 1999-00 season. Toronto visits New Orleans on March 19, hosts Oklahoma City on March 21 and Houston on April 2.
Green scored five points and Markieff Morris had four as the Suns opened the fourth with an 11-2 run to lead 107-92 with 7:26 remaining.
Phoenix called timeout after Lowry converted a three-point play with 4:08 left, cutting the deficit to 114-107. After the stoppage, Marcus Morris tipped in his brother's missed shot to halt a 6-0 Toronto run, and the Raptors didn't challenge again.
Valanciunas scored 13 points in the first and Ross had 11 for Toronto, but Green came off the bench to score 13 points in six minutes, hitting three of Phoenix's seven 3-pointers, as the Suns led 37-35 after one.
Toronto missed its first eight field goal attempts of the second quarter and trailed 59-49 after a 3 by Dragic with 2:44 left in the opening half. Ross scored seven points as the Raptors cut the gap to 61-59 at the intermission.
Phoenix had 17 second-chance points in the first half, while Toronto had just three. The Suns had eight offensive rebounds to Toronto's two.
Lowry scored 17 points in the third but Bledsoe had 10 for the Suns, all of them at the free throw line, as Phoenix took a 96-90 lead into the fourth.
NOTES: Phoenix outrebounded Toronto 45-26. ... DeRozan missed his first seven shot attempts. ... Toronto F Patrick Patterson (right elbow) missed his fifth straight game and will be re-evaluated Monday, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. ... Amir Johnson recorded his 406th block with Toronto, breaking a tie with Antonio Davis and taking sole possession of third place on the team's career list.
