Phoenix Suns vs Golden State Warriors: NBA All-Star Break Showdown

Recent Performance

The Suns (31-21, 15-10 away, 21-29-2 ATS) are 5-1 in their last six games and sit fifth in the Western Conference standings, two games ahead of the eighth-place Dallas Mavericks. Phoenix has owned Golden State (24-25, 13-13 home, 24-23-2 ATS) over the last two years, winning seven of the last eight head-to-head meetings, including the first three this season. The Suns are favored to finish off the regular season sweep tonight, but they will have to cool off a hot team to do so. The Warriors currently sit 11th in the West, two games behind the tenth-place Utah Jazz. But, like the Suns, the Dubs have five wins in their last six homes and are on one of their best runs of the season with four games remaining before the All-Star break.

Betting Odds

Here are the betting odds for the game:

  • Spread: Phoenix Suns -2 (-111), Golden State Warriors +2 (-109)
  • Over/Under: Over 242.5 (-115), Under 242.5 (-105)
  • Moneyline: Phoenix Suns -130, Golden State Warriors +110

Recent Games

Last Five Games for the Phoenix Suns:

  • Utah Jazz (2/8 – home): Won 129-115
  • Milwaukee Bucks (2/6 – home): Won 114-106
  • Washington Wizards (2/4 – away): Won 140-112
  • Atlanta Hawks (2/2 – away): Lost 129-120
  • Brooklyn Nets (1/31 – away): Won 136-120

  • Indiana Pacers (2/8 – away): Won 131-109
  • Philadelphia 76ers (2/7 – away): Won 127-104
  • Brooklyn Nets (2/5 – away): Won 109-98
  • Atlanta Hawks (2/3 – away): Lost 141-134 (OT)
  • Memphis Grizzlies (2/2 – away): Won 121-101

Prediction

Based on their recent play, the Warriors certainly merit some consideration. This evening’s game marks Golden State’s return home after a 4-1 road trip that saw them lose only to the Hawks in OT and defeat the Grizzlies, Nets, 76ers, and Pacers. Will their hot streak continue back at the Chase Center? On the other side, the Suns have been dominant against the Warriors in recent years and are favored to finish off the regular season sweep. However, the Warriors have been performing well at home and can't be written off. Considering the Warriors' struggles against teams with winning records, the Suns are predicted to win and cover the spread.

Best Player Props

Here are some player props to consider:

  • Devin Booker over 5.5 assists
  • Jonathan Kuminga over 2.5 assists
  • Jusuf Nurkic over 11.5 points and 22.5 points + rebounds
