The Golden State Warriors are at the tippety top of the Western Conference standings. The young Phoenix Suns are at the biggety bottom of the conference.
“For us, it’s a learning experience,” Suns coach Igor Kokoskov said. “We need everything a little more -- a little more discipline, a little more execution on both sides of the court.”
They should have some more to learn when they tip-off in Oakland this evening.
The rulers of the NBA will be at home, and with the sun beginning to set on Oracle Arena, the Dubs will want to give the Oakland faithful something to cheer about. Phoenix hasn’t won in Oakland since Bruno Mars was singing about jumping on grenades for some woman.
The Warriors have won 18 straight against the Suns dating back to 2014 and 14 in a row at Oracle Arena. The last time Phoenix won at Golden State was in February of 2011, when Steve Kerr was a part-owner of the Suns franchise.
If the Warriors win this game, it will complete a series sweep of the Suns. If the Suns win this game, they will have horribly disrupted their plan to tank for Zion Williamson in the draft.
Here’s hoping that the Warriors don’t troll us all and sleepwalk through this game. Then again, they might be able to win this game with 50% effort. In either case, here’s a cool reminder of when the Suns and Warriors were fun teams at the same time, many moons ago.

Let’s just hope for no injuries as the back-to-back champs march towards the postseason.
