Two Western conference squads coming off single victories are clashing tonight, when last season’s finalists but struggling Golden State Warriors (1-2), are hosting the Phoenix Suns (2-2), with both teams looking to turn those wins into their first streak of the season.
Date/Time: 10-30-2019, 22:30 EDT
Spread: Golden State Warriors -5
Golden State Warriors have a 1-2 record (1-2 against the spread) so far this season and are sitting in the 11th place of the West. In their last game they snapped a two-game losing streak by winning on the road against the Pelicans with a 134-123 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Steph Curry with 24 ppg, adding 5 boards and a team high 6.7 dimes per game. He is followed by D’Angelo Russell with 16.7 ppg and 6 dimes per game.
Phoenix Suns have a 2-2 record (4-0 against the spread) so far this season and are tied with the Blazers in the 9th place of the West. In their last game they won at home against the Clippers with a 130-122 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Devin Booker with 22.8 ppg, adding 4 boards a team high 6.2 dimes per game. He is followed by Kelly Oubre Jr. with 20.5 ppg and 6.2 boards per game.
In their four meetings last season the Warriors led the Suns 3-1 wins but were 1-1 at home. Warriors are 0-1 at home, while Suns are 0-1 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 116 ppg to Suns’ 114, while Suns are better defensively, allowing 105.2 ppg to Warriors’ 128. Suns have better percentages both in field goals (45.4% to 40.7%) and in 3-pointers (35.5% to 30.9%). Warriors on the other are better both in boards grabbed (47.3 to 46.8) and in turnovers committed (15 to 15.8), while Suns are better in dimes made (27.8 to 27). Bookmakers give the Warriors a -5 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds as the guests will surely force a closer game than that.
