Warriors stun Suns behind Wiggins' 38, pull off back-to-back defeat of Western Conference's two top teams
It is time to believe (again)
Every now and then, your favorite sports team rises up out of the daily drudgery and smacks your random Tuesday night with an incredible game.
So it went as the Golden State Warriors handled business against the Phoenix Suns, escaping with an exhilarating 122-116 win, and completing a daunting back-to-back beating of the Western Conference’s top two teams. If folks weren’t worried about seeing these Warriors in the playoffs before tonight, they are now.
This is why you should really watch all the games. In what looked like one of the toughest games of the season, the Warriors dug deep and pulled out a beautiful win.

I know this is just supposed to be a quick recap, so you can stop reading here and go hang out in the comments, but I need to take a personal moment with me and the legacy of one Andrew Wiggins. I don’t even want internet cookies, I just need to formally announce that I was wrong.
Andrew Wiggins is fine. More than fine, actually. I didn’t appreciate what we got when we picked him up, and I am willing to admit that. He’s not getting any benefit of doubt here, he’s earned the accolades.
38 points in 40 minutes. All while watching Curry and most of the rest of the team go cold.
I know my colleague, Daniel Hardee will be out in this space soon to dunk on all of the non-believers, and I could not be more excited about how wrong I was when we signed Wiggins - and got a potential lottery pick back in the same deal.
Looking ahead, the Warriors get two days off before the final Friday (Pelicans) and Sunday (Grizzlies) set their postseason fate. For now, we party!
