On paper, a Golden State Warriors-Phoenix Suns contest looks like an extreme mismatch. But anything can happen once the games are played, and fans of the Suns will be hoping they can play the part of David against the Goliath Warriors on Sunday.
- The total has gone UNDER in five of the Suns’ last six games at home.
- The Warriors are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games on the road against the Suns.
- The total has gone OVER in four of the Warriors’ last five games against the Suns.
Oddsmakers opened the Dubs as 11.5-point favorites with a total of 225.
Phoenix, who most recently lost to Oklahoma City 113-110 in overtime, will be having Russell Westbrook nightmares for quite some time. Westbrook erupted for a 51-point triple-double in the tilt – the first 50-point triple-double in the NBA since 1975.
The Warriors dropped their season-opening game against the San Antonio Spurs before getting in the win column against New Orleans on Friday. Kevin Durant has been stellar in his Bay Area season debut, leading the team in points on both nights. The superstar hauled in a game-high 17 rebounds to go along with 30 points, six assists, two steals and two blocks against the Pels.
Unsurprisingly, the Warriors have had a major edge in this series lately. Golden State is 7-0 SU in its last seven against the Suns.
