The Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors meet Sunday in NBA action at the Oracle Arena.

The Phoenix Suns look for a victory here after splitting their last eight games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 106.2 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 116.2 points on 48.4 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 24.9 points and 6.6 assists while TJ Warren is averaging 18 points and four rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Kelly Oubre Jr. is grabbing 4.9 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 77.6 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.1 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns have lost five of their last six road games.

The Golden State Warriors look for another win after splitting their last 10 games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 118.2 points on 48.8 percent shooting and allowing 112.4 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 28.1 points and 5.2 assists while Kevin Durant is averaging 27.5 points and 6.8 rebounds. Klay Thompson is the third double-digit scorer and DeMarcus Cousins is grabbing eight rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 80.8 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.2 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have won six of their last eight home games.

The Suns are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Warriors are 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 home games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Suns are 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings and the favorite is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 overall. The under is 8-3 in Suns last 11 overall.

The Golden State Warriors can obviously win this game by 50 if they really wanted to, but these Warriors are so up and down when it comes to the intensity they play with. Even with their blowout win over the Denver Nuggets, the Warriors are still being outscored by an average of 4.2 points in their last five games. Even at home where the Warriors are usually unbeatable and demolish teams, they're only winning by an average of 5.7 points. The Warriors are also just 15-15 ATS this season when favored by nine or more points. Backing the Suns isn't fun, but there's no way I'm laying this big of a number with the Warriors.

Pick:
Phoenix Suns +17
