The Golden State Warriors have just won a nail-biting game against the Milwaukee Bucks at home. Steph Curry was the game’s highlight, scoring 36 points and being instrumental in winning against the East’s dominant team. He was able to offer his team key baskets, which led to 22 points for him to score in the fourth quarter and overtime.
Curry is still performing at a very high level despite the fact that his birthday is coming up on Wednesday. He had to miss a month of work owing to an injury to his lower leg, but now he looks to be back to his old self. He has scored at least 27 points in his past four games, including a performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder in which he scored 40 points on an incredible 60.9 percent shooting from the field and ten three-pointers.
With a record of 35-33, the Warriors are doing all they can to keep hold of the sixth seed in the Western Conference. They have dominated the Chase Center, winning their last seven games and improving to 28-7 overall. They have a terrible record away from home, sitting at 7-26, so they need as many victories as possible at home.
What exactly is going on with the Suns?
Kevin Durant has yet to return for the remodeled Suns team. The former most valuable player in the league suffered an injury while warming up for the game that was supposed to be his home opener in Phoenix last week. The highlight of his first three games in his new Suns’ suit was his 37-point performance against the Dallas Mavericks. He has played three games so far in his new Suns uniform. Regrettably, Durant will not be able to participate in the clash against his old colleagues, with whom he won two championships.
Recently, the Suns were defeated by the red-hot Sacramento Kings, who are now fourth in the Western Conference with a record of 37-30. When you look at the standings, you can see that the Suns, the Warriors, and the LA Clippers will be in a dogfight for the fourth, fifth, and sixth seeds. Not to mention the Minnesota Timberwolves, who are now on the outside looking in for a postseason berth that is certain.
Since the Phoenix Suns have prevailed in their three prior matchups against the Golden State Warriors, they now have the advantage in their season series. Mikal Bridges scored 26 points to lead the Suns in their most recent trip to San Francisco, resulting in Phoenix’s victory at the Chase Center. Since Bridges was a part of the trade transaction that enabled Phoenix to acquire Durant, he will not be participating in the game that will take place on Tuesday.
Will Steph Curry and the rest of the Warriors win a game against the Phoenix Suns, or will the Suns continue dominating the Warriors?
