As this season winds down the Suns are getting closer the bottom of the Western Conference rankings as presently they are just 3.5 games ahead of the struggling Lakers of L. A. This game appears to be nothing but problematic for the Suns as they take on the Warriors on their home court where they have not had a loss this season, and matter fact for almost a year. But then remember it was only a few games ago when the Warriors lost to the league’s bottom Lakers.
If you’re a fan of the 17-48 Phoenix Suns you know your team had consecutive wins for the 1st time this season, then turned back to the loss column as they were beaten on Wednesday by the Knicks of New York and then on Thursday by the Nuggets of Denver and the 2 games were lost for a combined 49 points, and now they are 2-4 to date this March 2016 and most important fact is that those 4 losses in March were by 24.7 points on average.
In Their game against Denver, the Suns rookie D. Booker of Kentucky had a career day as he scored 36 points in that game, and in his ultimate 5 games he has averaged some 28.5 points each game, too bad other team members aren’t producing likewise.
That and the face that the Sun defense has been unable to stop opponents scoring, and similar with Golden State as in their ultimate 3 games they allowed the Warriors in those 3 games to score at least 125 points in each game.
In their last game against the Warriors at least the Suns stay in the game losing that game by just 8 points. So fans should not get too hyped, since the Suns in their ultimate 8 games at the Oracle Arena they are 0-8, and remember in their ultimate 20 games played on the road they are 2 and 18.
For the fans of the 58-6 Golden State Warriors, your team after their upset by the Lakers, and a close game with the Magic the Warriors got back to business with a rout of the Jazz of Utah 115-94 this past Wednesday, and then on Friday skinned the Blazers 128-112. Now the Warriors have an incredible home game streak of 47 victories.
Actually fans are wondering if the Warriors could face another upset against the 2nd worst team in the West the Suns as they did recently with their loss to the worst team in the West the Lakers. But let us remember that the loss against the Lakers was on the road, were this game tonight with the Suns is at home.
That loss to the Lakers was also a game where their star splash brother, Curry and Thompson has lost their stroke, but they rediscovered it as they combined for 72 points in their recent win over the Blazers of Portland. Plus remember that the Warriors always enjoy scoring a lot against the Phoenix Suns, as in their 3 games to date this season, the Splash brothers have combined each game for some 57 points, and each have had a 40 point game when playing the Suns.
The online sportsbook prediction for this game is likely expected as we see the powerful Warriors continue to win at home with a win over the Suns 124-100.
