The Golden State Warriors will meet the Phoenix Suns for the fourth time this season on Saturday night at the Chase Center in San Francisco.
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Indiana Pacers 131-109 in their recent game, with Stephen Curry leading the team with 42 points. Curry has been averaging 28 points and 4.8 assists in the last 10 games, while Jonathan Kuminga has been contributing with 23.3 points and 6.7 rebounds.
Coming off a 129-115 victory over the Utah Jazz, Kevin Durant recorded 31 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists in the Suns’ win, while Bradley Beal had 30 points. The Suns were without Devin Booker against the Jazz due to a hip injury and it is unsure if he will be healthy enough for the matchup against the Warriors.
The last time these two teams played, the Suns edged past the Warriors 119-116 on Dec. 12.
