The Warriors and Suns enter Sunday’s slate with the largest spread of all nine contests, and it’s really not even close.
Entering this one, Phoenix won three straight and four of their last five. It’s only the second time the team has won at least three straight all season (they won four in a row back in December). But those four wins in their last five are also the Suns’ only victories over their last 10 overall.
Golden State enters this game with the NBA’s third-best record and No. 1 overall seed out West. This team has won five of its last 10 and is currently on a one-game winning streak.
These two tip off at 8:30 p.m. ET on Sunday.
The Suns enter this Sunday-night showdown scoring 106.7 points per outing. That number is only good enough for 24th in the NBA.
Defensively, Phoenix is allowing opponents to score 115.8 points per night. That number is only good enough for 28th in the league.
When looking at advanced metrics, Phoenix falls to 27th in Offensive Efficiency. The team is scoring 103 points per 100 possessions.
As far as Defensive Efficiency is concerned, the Suns are giving up 111.4 points per 100 possessions. That number is only good enough for 29th in the Association.
Golden State Warriors
Golden State enters this game as the No. 1 scoring team in the NBA. Coming off their 122-105 litmus test victory over the No. 2 Denver Nuggets, they’re averaging 118.3 points per night.
As far as Offensive Efficiency is concerned, the Dubs are just as elite. They remain No. 1 in the league and they average 114.1 points per 100 possessions.
To put that in better perspective, considering the following: The difference between the No. 1 Warriors and No. 2 Houston Rockets is 2.2 points per 100 possessions. In a vacuum that might not seem like much, but that 2.2-point difference is the same gap between the No. 2 Rockets and No. 10 New Orleans Pelicans.
The Warriors don’t let up much on defense, either. In fact, DeMarcus Cousins, in particular, is starting to shut down critics with his play on the point-preventing end.
On the season, Golden State is just 18th in points per game allowed (112.3) but that has more to do with their top-10 pace creating extra possessions for opponents. When looking at Defensive Efficiency, the Dubs sit just outside the top 10, giving up 107.2 points per 100 possessions.

As good as the Warriors are on defense, they still have a tendency to give up a lot of points—even in big-time wins.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: PHX ATS
The Warriors will get a convincing victory straight up, but their defense—especially late when the game is decided—won’t feel the need to keep it going.
