Warriors don't even break 100, Suns break franchise win streak record
Even without Booker, Phoenix proves too much
Turnovers and a rare off night from Stephen Curry doomed the Golden State Warriors tonight. Even though the Phoenix Suns lost leading scorer, Devin Booker to a pulled hamstring in the first half, they hammered the Warriors, and secured a new franchise win streak record for themselves in the process.
This was a tough one.
An exciting game early, it was tight all the way through. I really thought Jordan Poole and Otto Porter would be enough to carry the team through a very tough Suns defense that gave Curry fits all night.
But it just felt like one of those nights. Way too many turnovers, and Curry was way out of sorts.
Credit to Phoenix, for making it tough, but for whatever reason, the Warriors offensive sets were just not happening tonight. This is the first game of the season that the Warriors failed to crack 100 points on.
Onward and upward!
Golden State gets two days off before having another shot at this Suns team at home. Booker’s hamstring will almost certainly keep him out of that game as well, so hopefully Golden State can find some home cooking when these teams meet up again on Friday.
