Curry, Golden State plot to rip Phoenix

Curry, Golden State plot to bombard Phoenix

Golden State’s season opener was a disjointed, messy affair that produced a 29-point defeat for the defending Western Conference champion. Naturally, though, the calamity didn’t last long.

On Friday, Steve Kerr’s squad bounced back from its 129-100 drubbing at the hands of San Antonio with a 122-114 win over the Pelicans. Not only did Kevin Durant top 30 points for the first time as a Warrior, two-time MVP Stephen Curry added 23. With the exception of a few defensive lapses, the effort on display seemed comparable to what fans witnessed so often throughout the 2015-16 campaign.

Bet on the Action

The next step: repeating the same formula. Golden State travels to Phoenix tonight, with a 6 p.m. ET tip at Talking Stick Resort Arena. Online sports book Bovada.lv gives the visiting team odds of -950 to improve to 2-1. The rebuilding Suns, on the other hand, typify +625 underdogs.

People all across the Grand Canyon State understand that the year ahead promises to bring numerous travails. Yet Phoenix’s second contest already featured a fair number of positives. Coach Earl Watson’s crew dropped a 113-110 overtime verdict on the road vs. Oklahoma City. If not for Russell Westbrook’s otherworldly triple-double, the Suns would possess a .500 record on the eve of Halloween.

In reality, however, the Warriors will destroy Eric Bledsoe & Co. shortly. Even if Curry, Durant and Klay Thompson receive early hooks, count on Draymond Green and Kerr’s ever-capable supporting cast to secure a blowout victory.
