The Warriors are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-24 ATS in their last 31 Thursday games. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Warriors last 5 overall. The over is 4-0 in Suns last 4 home games. The Warriors are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Phoenix and 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
The Phoenix Suns aren't playing good basketball right now and don't deserve to be favored against any respectable teams. The Golden State Warriors are hit or miss and who knows what to expect on the end of a back to back, but they have the offensive firepower to hang with the Suns. The Warriors have also won seven of their last 10 meetings against the Suns. I'll take the free bucket with the Warriors.
