Betting on the Phoenix Suns (19-57)

The last time the Suns won in Oakland, Steve Nash, Vince Carter, and Grant Hill were still teammates in Phoenix. That was way back in 2011, and since then the Suns have lost all of their next 12 games at Golden State’s home floor, which includes the 129-83 decimation at the hands of the Warriors on Feb. 12. The Suns were a bit more competitive when it hosted the defending champions on Mar. 17, albeit in a 124-109 loss. The Suns are a good bet to finish the season with the worst record in the NBA. They don’t have the motivation nor the interest to win games. Devin Booker and T.J. Warren, the Suns’ top two players, are hurting, and even if they recovered, Phoenix will probably just hold them out than risk their health in meaningless games. In any case, Josh Jackson, Elfrid Payton, and Troy Daniels will be relied upon by the Suns to deliver the goods. Jackson has averaged 22.0 points in two games against the Warriors this season, while Payton and Daniels have put up 20.0 points and 12.5 points in the same matchup.

Betting on the Golden State Warriors (54-21)

Point Spread: (click here)

The Warriors are banged up and dropped another pair this week, including a tough 116-107 loss to the Bucks on Thursday. But if there’s a team they could beat even they’re asleep, it’s got to be Phoenix. When Golden State defeated Phoenix on the road on Mar. 17, 124-109, the Warriors played without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant. In lieu of Curry and Thompson, Quinn Cook and Nick Young put on their own show, scoring 28 and 20 points, respectively, with eight three-pointers together. Phoenix is not a hard team to score on, as the Suns own the weakest defense in the league with 113.7 points allowed per game, so with or without Curry, Thompson, or even Durant, the Warriors should still be able to put up ample points up on the board. Young is averaging 18.0 points on 48.0 field goal percentage against the Suns this season. As a team, Golden State is averaging 126.5 points and is shooting 55.4 percent from the field in Suns games.

Writer’s Prediction:

Golden State wins, 115-103.
