Preview: Warriors @ Suns
Tonight at 9:00p EST, the Golden State Warriors face the Phoenix Suns at America West Arena. Without Amare, the Suns have struggled to a 2-3 start including an 0-3 home record. In order to win, the Warriors must play good defense and dominate down low. In the last preseason game against the Suns, the starters could not pull out a win against the second string Suns. I know it's only preseason, but the Warriors must come out and play a full 4 quarters. Sometimes this season, the team will disappear for a quarter and let the other team back in the game. If that happens most likely the Warriors will lose. It's a game they should win.
I'm not sure who scheduled the Warriors games, but 4 games in 5 days? 2 straight back to back games with 3 of the 4 being away games. Not sure who scheduled this, but at least these are coming in the beginning of the season rather than the end.
Not that it means much right now, but at 4-2, the Warriors are sitting in 2nd place in the Pacific behind the suprising Clips, and are 4th in the Western Conference.
