On Tuesday, May 11th the Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors will meet for the third and final time this season. The Suns won both initial matches featuring a 114-93 victory on January 28th and a 120-98 win on March 4th.
This could be a preview of a first-round playoff series depending on how this week shakes out.
Last season, the squads played four times splitting the season series with each side winning two of the contests. The Suns hold the all-time record between the squads with 142 victories in the team’s 250 meetings.
The question is whether the stumble last week was simply the Suns losing interest down the stretch, nursing injuries, or perhaps some logistical jockeying for position.
Of the three the middle option along with some wear and tear makes the most sense. They’ve proven they can beat the best teams. They are beasts on the road and clutch time killers.
Let’s just hope the two losses last week were simply tied to fatigue. Normally it wouldn’t be that bad but allowing the Hawks to score 135 points and the Lakers 123 aren’t habits the team wants to keep repeating.
Cameron Johnson (right wrist sprain) and Abdel Nader (right knee arthroscopy) are both out.
Golden State Warriors
At the start of week 19, the Warriors were battling the Spurs and Grizzlies trying to be the team who could cement the 10th seed. Funny how a week can dramatically change things. One week later with three consecutive wins (and five of six) and suddenly the Warriors look like the best bet to cement the eighth seed.
That’s the best spot for the play-in teams to fall into as they’ll get a shot to beat the team in seventh (currently the Lakers) and if they win take the seventh seed and play the second seed (currently the inexperienced Suns) in the first round.
It’s not all bad if they lose because they get another shot facing the winner of the ninth and tenth seed. The winner of that play-in round moves on to play the top seed.
The interesting regular season dynamics for the Warriors is they beat Utah two out of three times but have lost both prior meetings against the Suns. So this match takes on credence perhaps more in terms of finding a way to beat the Suns rather than focusing on just getting the win.
Kelly Oubre (fractured left wrist) has missed the last seven games and is expected out again.
Damion Lee (health, safety protocols) remains out. Eric Paschall (hip) is out indefinitely. Klay Thompson (Achilles) and James Wiseman (knee) are out for the season.
