This Western conference matchup has the reigning conference champion Warriors facing off against the Phoenix Suns.
The Warriors have won 7 in a row in the series, and averaged 125 points in last season’s sweep.
Golden State Warriors
The season started off with a bad loss to the Spurs on opening night, but this super team is still the favorite to win the title. Kevin Durant’s signing affected the depth of the roster, but was worth the risk.
Kevin Durant has played like the top 3 talent that he is, and his first two games in a Warriors uniform have been amazing. He is averaging 28 points, 13 rebounds, and 5 assists in the early part of the season. The Suns utilize a 3 guard lineup so Durant should score at will tonight.
MVP Stephen Curry hasn’t started this year as many expected him to. He is averaging 24 points and 5 assists per game, but he is only shooting 35% from 3 point range.
He will have Eric Bledsoe guarding him for much of this one, and I expect Curry to have a repeat performance of his last game against the Suns (35 points- 7/16 from 3).
Draymond Green is the glue that holds the Warriors together on both sides of the ball. He is one of the best defensive players in the league and has the potential put up a triple double every night.
His points per game are down with Kevin Durant emerging as the top scoring option on the team, but he can still put up a 20,10,5 performance against a Suns front line with an aging Tyson Chandler and Alex Len.
Klay Thompson hasn’t shot the ball well from behind the arc yet, but the rest of his offensive numbers are right in line with his play last year. Once he starts hitting his 3 point shots he should be a candidate for MVP this season, even while playing in the shadow of 2 former MVPs.
The Suns run a 3 guard system that simply has not resulted in playoff appearances for the franchise.
With 3 first round picks in the back court you would expect steady improvement as the players grow into their roles, but Phoenix doesn’t have the talent to contend for a playoff spot in my eyes.
Eric Bledsoe is the veteran in the backcourt, and if Phoenix is going to have any shot at the playoffs he needs to make a steady improvement the way All Star Isaiah Thomas did.
He had a good game against the Thunder on Thursday, finishing with 17 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds, and 3 steals. He will have Klay Thompson guarding him most of the night so I don’t expect big numbers from him.
Last year’s 1st round pick Devin Booker has started this season strong, and might have a chance to become the most improved player in the league.
He isn’t a threat to beat you from long range, so he used his athleticism and ability to finish at the rim to get 21 points against the Thunder.
Curry should guard him for long stretches so I expect Booker to have another 20 point game.
