The Phoenix Suns hit the road to face the Golden State Warriors on the second night of a back-to-back for the Warriors.  No one expected this game to be close, but it was insanely entertaining for all four quarters.  The first three quarters were great for Suns fans.  The Warriors really turned it on in the fourth quarter, where they took the lead and ran with it.  Ultimately, the Warriors won the game 123-116.

Everyone that you would expect to play well for the Warriors did.  Stephen Curry continues to work his magic as he finished with 35 points, three rebounds, and six assists.  He hit seven threes and pretty much every one of them was unbelievable.  The other Splash Brother, Klay Thompson, finished with 20 points, six rebounds, three assists, and a steal.

Draymond Green did it all against Phoenix.  He finished with 19 points, four rebounds, six assists, two steals, and a block.  These three Golden State players are always solid.  When they get help from reserves, they are an even better team.  This was the case tonight as Marreese Speights dropped 25 points.

The Suns played amazing basketball in the first three quarters.  If you were not able to watch this game, or if you thought this game would not be worth watching, I recommend watching the first three quarters of this game.  It will restore your hope in this team.

Also, it’s good to have Brandon Knight back.  Check out this video of him faking out Klay Thompson and then draining a three in the last seconds of the third quarter.

Which Suns Shone the Brightest?

1. Brandon Knight – This was Knight’s first start since having his sports hernia repaired and he sure looked good.  He had 30 points, six rebounds, seven assists, a steal, and a block.  It’s good to have Knight back in the lineup.

2. Alex Len – Len continues his stretch of great play.  He finished with 26 points, 13 rebounds, and three assists.  He had a double-double in the first half.  His rebounding continues to be great and he is scoring in a variety of ways.  His mid-range shooting is coming along and his post moves continue to impress.

3. Devin Booker – Booker did not have his best game, but I’m putting him in this section because of his passing.  He had another double-double with assists.  He had 18 points, 11 assists, and a block.  These 11 assists show how Booker continues to grow into a well rounded player.  The future is bright.

The Suns will head home to take on the Timberwolves on Monday, March 14 at 7:00 PM.
