Again, the Warriors still won’t have enough power against the Suns
NS Golden Empire Warriors will play their toughest match of the season tonight.
They’re going to Arizona to face off against the hot Phoenix Suns team led by the star shooting guard Devin Booker. center Deanre Ayton and protect Chris Paul both played important roles in the Western Conference’s second best group.
The Golden State Warriors meet the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, and a small reminder for fans that Dubs is still underpowered.
This will be the first of two matches the teams play over the next few days.
The first will be held at Talking Stick Resort Arena and the second at Chase Center. That said, the Suns are 17-3 and have won 16 straight games in the top flight. The Warriors are on their own winning streak, currently 7, with an overall record of 18-2.
Golden State, despite Phoenix’s winning streak, has the best record in the NBA. The Suns have the second-best record in the league, which should show how high-level this matchup will be.
For Golden State, however, there is hope that they can get even better.
Klay Thompson, a five-time All-Star defender who hasn’t competed since mid-2019, will be back around Christmas time. He’s actually slated to return on Christmas Day, an irony of which is Warriors-Suns.
His return will be a huge boost for the Warriors both offensively and defensively. Thompson, before two end-of-season injuries (Achilles tore in 2020 and torn ACL in 2019), is one of the NBA’s best 3-and-D players.
With Thompson’s return at the end of the season, second year center James Wiseman, who has been alleged to have been bullied, will return from tearing his meniscus in the near future. Wiseman’s return date is a bit more cloudy, but it should be within the next few weeks.
Both players have been assigned to the team’s G-League branch, the Santa Cruz Warriors. Andre Iguodala is also likely to miss the Warriors-Suns return games, damaging Golden State’s depth.
All in all, without Iggy, Thompson and Wiseman, the team the Sun sees now would be a far cry from what they saw at Christmas. So, however, on Tuesday night, keep that in mind.
This team is only going to get better, and they certainly showed that they have the chemistry at the NBA Championship that the previous team Kevin Durant had.
