When the Warriors last played the Suns, Goran Dragic wanted to show his son what he was capable of. Dragic was very capable on a night where the Suns took down the Warriors 122-109. Dragic scored a career high 34 points and added two rebounds, 10 assists and two steals. It was the sixth time this season that Dragic went for more than 30 points. Gerald Green added 25 points, seven rebounds and a steal. P.J. Tucker also had a stellar game with 16 points and 15 rebounds.
The Suns were scorching on this night, shooting 53.8 percent from the field and hitting over 50 percent of their 3-pointers. They also out-rebounded the Warriors by 11, but that was in part because the Warriors were missing David Lee and Andrew Bogut.
Even without their two big men, the Warriors played well and still shot 48.8 percent from the field on the night. It was enough to bring the Warriors within 2 with less than eight minutes to go. The Suns then really turned up the heat and outscored them 20-9 the rest of the way.
Golden State was led by Stephen Curry who had 28 points, two rebounds and nine assists. He got help from Klay Thompson who added 17 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal. Harrison Barnes also put up 23 points on 9-of-15 shooting with six rebounds.
Over the last 10 meetings between the Suns and Warriors, Golden State is 7-3 straight up and 6-4 against the spread. However, Phoenix has covered in three of the last four head-to-head matchups.
Over their last 10 most recent games, the Phoenix Suns are 6-4-1 ATS and have covered in three of four but they'll be on the road this time around and Golden State has played well ATS at home.
The Warriors have been productive ATS over the last month and will be looking to keep it up against the Suns.
