Golden St. Warriors vs. Phoenix Suns
The Phoenix Suns hope to continue their dominance over the Golden State Warriors as the two square off tonight. The Warriors are -4 point favorites over the Suns with an over/under point total set at 202.
After losing 14 of their first 22 games, the Suns look to have turned the corner as they have won four of their last five, with three of those coming away from home. The Warriors are also playing some of their best basketball this season after tacking down the Houston Rockets 106-97 on Sunday night for their second straight victory and fourth in six games.
Despite shooting 50% for the game, the Warriors fell to the Suns 102-91 in the first meeting of the season in Phoenix. In a game that was tightly contested throughout, Phoenix pulled away from Golden State in the fourth quarter, outscoring them 30-22 to secure the victory. Steve Nash led all scorers with 21 points, to go along with nine assists, while Monta Ellis led the Warriors with 18 points, on just 6-16 shooting.
Head to head, the Suns are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings, but just 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Golden State, while the underdog is 19-9-1 ATS in the last 29 meetings and the home team is 15-7-1 ATS in the last 23 meetings. The Warriors are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games as a home favorite of 0.5-4.5, but just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest. The Suns on the other hand are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog of 0.5-4.5 and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.
If their wins in Atlanta and Milwaukee weren’t impressive enough, the Suns went out and dominated a Sacramento team that isn’t exactly easy to beat on their home floor. The Warriors on the other hand have only lost three times since the 25th of January, with two of those losses coming against Oklahoma City. I could easily see either team winning this one, so taking the points is definitely the way to go in this one.
