GSW vs PHX DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Phoenix Suns will have their task cut out when they host the reigning NBA champions Golden State Warriors in the NBA at Talking Stick Resort Arena, in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday morning (IST).

Phoenix Suns:

There is one thing that hasn’t changed from the last season is the foot of the Western Conference table. Phoenix Suns are still suffering from the tag of one of the lowest performing teams in NBA this season as well.

They have played 37 games coming into their next match against Golden State Warriors, winning just nine while losing a whopping 28 games. Their winning percentage of 0.243 is the joint second worst, better only than Cleveland Cavaliers who are falling like a house of cards without LeBron James.

But there is a shining light. The first, five out of their nine wins have come in the last 10 matches. And second is the form of Devin Booker. The 22-year-old is accumulating some insane numbers despite playing in a team which is struggling.

In the last game, they lost at home 118-122 against Denver Nuggets. But that match showed their recent form and confidence.

Suns started very poorly losing the first quarter 16-36. If winning the quarters could hand them the match then Suns won the next three but couldn’t recover from the assault of the first quarter.

DeAndre Ayton had 33 points and 14 rebounds in the match while Devin Booker dropped 27points in the match.

Golden State Warriors:

The reigning champions took revenge of their buzzer-beater 109-110 home defeat by Portland Blazers by beating the same opponents in their own backyard in the very next match. And that was timely, and a reminder that they are the defending champions.

Klay Thompson struggled in the first match against Blazers, scoring 15 points and shooting at the career-worst 33 percent from the three-point range. But the 27-year-old was back to his very best and dropped a team-high 32 points in the 2nd game. What would be more reliving to Steve Kerr was his shooting which was 12-for-21 shooting (4-for-5 from three-point range).

While Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant made telling contributions, scoring 25 points each in the game.

With the win, the Dubs moved to 2nd in the Western Conference table. Denver Nuggets are still leading the table but the gap is trimming down as Warriors are just a game away from matching their record for the season.

Regular Season Record-
Phoenix Suns: W-9, L-28
Golden State Warriors: W-24, L-13

Players to watch out for:
Phoenix Suns:

Devin Booker – Absolutely fantastic. The numbers that he is accumulating this season are unbelievably high for a team which is reeling at the foot of the table. The 22-year-old is averaging 25.5 points per game, while his average is almost 30 points per game in the last 10 games coming into this match.
TJ Warren – The 2nd best player in Phoenix Suns’ roster is Warren. The 25-year-old is racking up 18.6 points per game. He may not be a high performing star but should be in your NBA fantasy team.

Golden State Warriors:
Kevin Durant – He is too good. He is the two-time NBA finals MVP. He is Kevin Durant and is racking up MVP calibre numbers. This season his average is shooting above Stephen Curry, 28.6 points per game to be precise. The former Oklahoma City Thunder has that unique ability which can change the face of the game.
Stephen Curry – He is somebody in Warriors’ roster who can outperform even Durant on a Basketball court. Arguably the best ever shooter NBA has ever seen, the 30-year-old is racking up MVP calibre numbers this season, 28.5 points per game.
