-First and most, I believe Warriors are getting some love just because they beat the Clippers couple of days ago.. Warriors are TERRIBLE on the road (3-8) and I believe the line should be at least +5 to +6 Warriors.
-Golden State Warriors team hasn't won in Phoenix nearly seven years.
-Monta Ellis is among the Warriors to have never won at US Airways Center. He's appeared in 11 games there and shot 37.8 percent - his worst in any arena - and his 14.6 scoring average at Phoenix is five below his career mark
-Phoenix Suns are a veteran team and they know that it is very critical to win these winnable games. On the other side, Warriors are still a young team and I expect them to have a let down game after a big win against the Clippers.
-Suns are coming off a blow out win against the Wizards and Nash & Hill only logged in 27 minutes. When Nash and Hill is rested, their a scary combo!
-Gortat has been playing out of his mind lately! averaging 20.7 points and 12.7 rebounds over the last three games while shooting 60.0 percent. With Udoh (did not practice tuesday) and Biedrins banged up, they'll have no chance guarding Gortat!
-Redd, Frye, Dudley plays well at home so i'm not worried about them!
I'll take the Phoenix Suns tonight!
