The Warriors opened their current two-game home stand with Saturday’s 125-116 victory over Milwaukee, which marked a turnaround after the club went winless on their preceding three-game road trip. The Suns saw a four-game straight up and against the spread win streak snapped with Saturday’s 128-119 loss to the visiting Sacramento Kings but have won three straight on the road.

The Warriors have held stead since opening as 4.5-point favourites, and the total has tumbled to 236 since opening at a lofty 240.

Monday night’s matchup at Chase Center marks the fourth and final meeting of the regular season between these Western Conference rivals. The Suns have dominated in head-to-head action, winning four straight, and 10 of 15 dates since February 2019. Phoenix has been particularly dominant when facing the Warriors this season, claiming victory in their three previous clashes by an average margin of 17.3 points, including a 125-113 win when they visited the Bay Area on January 10. With the Suns averaging just under 130 points per game, the OVER has gone 3-0 when these teams have met this season, ending a steady 11-2 run for the UNDER.

Phoenix Suns

The Suns saw a second-half rally fall short in Saturday’s loss to the Kings. Trailing by eight points at the half, Phoenix rebounded to claim a slim lead in the final frame before fading in the dying seconds on their way to their second loss in four home games. However, this club has remained steady on the road, averaging 120 points per game during a 3-0 run, capped by last weekend’s 130-126 victory in Dallas. However, the loss of Kevin Durant to an ankle injury that will sideline him indefinitely is a massive blow. With KD on the shelf, veteran Torrey Craig has received a boost in playing time, but that has not translated in increased offensive production for the 32-year-old, who has recorded just seven total points and 12 rebounds in the past two games. Durant’s arrive in the desert helped boost Devin Booker’s numbers. Booker averaged 36 points in three games playing alongside KD, but picked up just 28 points in Saturday’s loss.

Golden State Warriors

The Warriors halted a three-game slide that threatened to dump them out of the top six in the West during their recent 0-3 run. However, the club demonstrated plenty of character while outlasting the Bucks in Saturday’s 125-116 overtime victory. In addition to marking his first home appearance since returning from a recent leg injury, Saturday’s win also marked Stephen Curry’s most productive outing on home hardwood since November. Curry racked up a game-high 36 points against the Bucks, who were without superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, and has now averaged 33 points in four outings since his return. But overall, the Dubs attack could certainly improve its efficiency after converting less than 44% from the field in three of their past four contests.
