The Line: Phoenix Suns -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Golden State Warriors look to stay undefeated tonight when they visit the Phoenix Suns.
The Warriors extended their perfect start to the season with their biggest win so far, a 111-77 demolition of the hapless Lakers in a home win on Tuesday to improve to a record 16-0. Stephen Curry led hte scoring with 24 points, Draymond Green added 18 points while Leandro Barbosa added 13 as the Warriors jumped out to lead by 30-11 after the first quarter which all but secured the win. Defensively, the Warriors did a nice job to hold the Lakers to just 37.3 percent shooting, but I'm not sure how much credit they can claim for Kobe Bryant's career-worst night of one of 14 shooting from the field. What more can you say about the Warriors?

Meanwhile, the Suns will be trying to avoid a fourth straight loss after falling to the Pelicans in a 120-114 defeat on Wednesday. Brandon Knight had a big game of 29 points and 10 assists, Jon Leuer aded 20 points and 12 rebounds off the bench while TJ Warren and Eric Bledsoe had 18 points as the Suns stormed out to an early 39-25 lead after the first quarter. Unfortunately, some porous defense meant that the Pelicans poured on 95 points in the final three quarters of the game, dropping the Suns back below .500 with a 7-8 overall record. Unfortunately, Bledsoe aggravated a knee injury on Wednesday so his status for tonight is still up in the air.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall, while the Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record.
Head to head, the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Phoenix but the favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last seven overall.
The Suns are a bit of a streaky team that could very well get the upset tonight, but there's just no stopping the Warriors. Take the road team to stay undefeated tonight.
