What to Know
The Golden State Warriors are getting right back to it as they host the Phoenix Suns at 10 p.m. ET May 11 at Chase Center. The Warriors will be strutting in after a victory while Phoenix will be stumbling in from a defeat.
Things were close when Golden State and the Utah Jazz clashed on Monday, but Golden State ultimately edged out the opposition 119-116. It was another big night for Golden State's point guard Stephen Curry, who had 36 points and six assists. The matchup made it Chef Curry's seventh in a row with at least 30 points.
Meanwhile, Phoenix received a tough blow on Sunday as they fell 123-110 to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Suns were down 98-77 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Their loss shouldn't obscure the performances of point guard Cameron Payne, who had 24 points, and small forward Mikal Bridges, who had 15 points.
Phoenix is now 48-20 while the Warriors sit at 36-33. Both teams are in the playoff hunt, so this is a critical contest.
Golden State is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Warriors have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 45.10%, which places them third in the league. But Phoenix comes into the game boasting the second highest field goal percentage in the league at 48.90%. We'll see which of these strengths -- offense or defense -- will win out.
