The Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors meet Friday in NBA action at the Chase Center. The Phoenix Suns look to build on their 18-game winning streak. The Golden State Warriors look for a win after winning 14 of their last 16 games.
The Phoenix Suns are averaging 112.2 points on 48.1 percent shooting and allowing 104.6 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 23.2 points and 4.9 rebounds, while Deandre Ayton is averaging 16 points and 11.5 rebounds. Chris Paul is the third double-digit scorer and Mikal Bridges is dishing 1.9 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.2 rebounds per game.
The Golden State Warriors are averaging 114 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 100.4 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 28.6 points and 6.8 assists, while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 19 points and 4.6 rebounds. Jordan Poole is the third double-digit scorer and Damion Lee is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 76.9 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 32.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.1 rebounds per game.
The Suns are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Warriors are 34-16-1 ATS in their last 51 home games and 21-5-1 ATS in their last 27 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Suns last 8 overall. The under is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 overall. The under is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings.
This is a rough spot for the Phoenix Suns, as they're without their best player in Booker and on the end of a back to back. The Golden State Warriors are rested, and they win at home by an average of 16.6 points while shooting 49 percent from the field. This game could get ugly. However, we're getting a lot of points with a Suns team that's won 18 straight games, and they just beat the Warriors on Tuesday when Booker left the game rather early. I can't turn down free points with a team this hot, regardless of the circumstances.
Randy’s Pick Phoenix Suns +6.5
