Phoenix +4½ over Golden State

10:10 PM EST. Situationally speaking, this might be a tough one for the Warriors as they are coming off arguably their biggest, and easily the most thrilling victory of the season. That would be the 125-116 overtime win over Milwaukee, at home in San Francisco on Saturday night. That game was highly publicized because of the performance of Steph Curry, who led the Dubs back from down eight points with two minutes to play, to that nine-point margin of victory over the next seven minutes of game time.

Curry answered those critics that suggested the Warriors no longer had an identity rather emphatically, with his stat line to close out that game. Curry finished with 36 points in a season-high 43 minutes. It was an all-time performance from a man that has had many over the years. However, Father Time waits for no one, and Curry played that hand after the game. When asked how he felt about another legendary performance in front of a national audience on ABC, which means that game was seen by many eyes. Back to the presser, where Curry was quoted as saying that he’s “great,” but also admitted that he’s “getting old.” The man that changed how this game is played turns 35 this week. Enjoy him while you can.

So obviously, the Warriors' stock is high after that win, as the market has a tendency to overreact to what it just saw. The recency bias looms large here, as does the Warriors' impressive home record. The Dubs have won seven straight games at home and now sit at 28-7 at the Chase Center. However, because of that, you are going to pay a premium to back the Dubs in San Francisco. That is something that we preach never to do.

The air has already been let out of the Suns' tires, as newly acquired superstar Kevin Durant is once again injured after just a few games in Phoenix. Well, that’s not entirely true. Dude never made it to Phoenix and was scratched for what was supposed to be his grand unveiling in the Valley last week. Durant is still sidelined and will not play tonight, but you know what? That matters not, as the Suns were a pretty damn good team before he showed up. Now that team is taking back inflated points on the road. One could argue that the Suns should be favored here, but rather than play them on the money line, we will take the generous possession being offered up here.
