Phoenix Suns vs. Golden State Warriors - 4/5/17 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Steph Curry scored 19 points for Golden State, which came up with the usual slow start against a lowly opponent, trailing by one early in the second, before taking over.

On Tuesday night, the two teams will meet one last time this season in Oakland.

After torching the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday for 41 points on 13-of-24, shooting including 7-of-14 on threes, Klay Thompson credited the weather for his recent peak in shooting percentages. With an National Basketball Association best, 63-14 record, the Golden State Warriors are the hottest team in the National Basketball Association right now with an 11 game winning streak. "This sunshine's been so good to me, been able to get outside", said Thompson, who saw his share of precipitation growing up in Portland.

The Warriors can't wait to have him - and be that much more dominant.

The empirical evidence suggests that Durant will affect the team's flow on offense, but that will not keep the Warriors from dominating the West in the playoffs, as their talent and star power will eventually prevail over ball-sharing and offensive schemes.

Coach Steve Kerr plans to rest both Iguodala and Green on Wednesday night. The play went to review, with each player receiving a technical and McGee also a Flagrant 1 foul. Matt Barnes ended up with a nice 12-6-4 line, hitting open threes and showcasing his skills as a point-forward playmaker.

During his 17-game absence due to an injury to his left knee, the Warriors have weathered the storm and performed well once Curry assumed his position being the first option on offence.

Between Feb. 22 and March 8, Oakland battled uncharacteristically cold weather that blasted the city with lows below 40 and highs that didn't peak in the mid-60s until late in the first week of March. With the 121-107 victory, Golden State's magic number to clinch the 1 seed is down to 2 games.
