The Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors meet Friday in NBA action at the Chase Center.
The Phoenix Suns need a win here to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 114.7 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 115.5 points on 48 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 24 points and 6.4 assists while Deandre Ayton is averaging 18 points and 11.5 rebounds. Kelly Oubre Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Ricky Rubio is dishing 9.4 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 80.2 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 37.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.9 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns have lost five of their last seven road games.
The Golden State Warriors look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 105.3 points on 43.1 percent shooting and allowing 113 points on 47 percent shooting. D'Angelo Russell is averaging 22.3 points and 6.1 assists while Alec Burks is averaging 15.6 points and 4.6 rebounds. Eric Paschall is the third double-digit scorer and Glenn Robinson III is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc and 81.6 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 38.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have split their last six home games.
The Suns are 29-14-1 ATS in their last 44 games as a road favorite, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Warriors are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Friday games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a home underdog and 16-34-2 ATS in their last 52 games following a ATS win. The over is 17-7 in Suns last 24 overall. The under is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 home games. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Golden State and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Phoenix Suns continue to get respect from oddsmakers and I just don't understand it, as this team is riding a seven-game losing streak and is losing their last five games by an average of 11.2 points while allowing 53.6 percent shooting. The Golden State Warriors have quietly won three straight games and just beat a good Houston Rockets team on Christmas, the biggest upset by far on a day where four of the five underdogs won. I'm not saying everything is fixed in Golden State, but I'll take the Warriors in the underdog role at home before I lay points with a Suns team that's going nowhere fast.
