3. @ Golden State Warriors – Thursday, April 2nd, 10:30 ET (TNT)
The Golden State Warriors have been a hot topic this summer. They fired the highly successful Mark Jackson unexpectedly. They were rumored to be going after Kevin Love. They were rumored indeed not to be going after Love. One thing is for sure, when the Suns and Warriors meet, it will be a very intriguing game because of the similarities between the two teams.
Both, the Warriors and the Suns are expected to have good play out of their guards this season but questions always linger involving defense especially down in the paint.
With this game taking place so late in the season, there will be playoff implications on the horizon. The Suns and Warriors will both be fighting for playoff seeding. It seems like the Western Conference standings are never decided until the last game of the regular season.
This game is expected to feature a lot of 3 point-shots along with very aggressive guard play especially by Stephen Curry of the Warriors and Eric Bledsoe of the Suns. I predict this game will feature both teams having at least a final score of 120. You heard it here first.
