Booker's big night leads Suns over Warriors

Booker's big night leads Suns over Warriors

Playing the second night of a back-to-back, the Suns found the energy to outlast the Warriors after having trailed by as many as 16 points. With only 16 games left, the Warriors will want their superstar player ready for the postseason. The Warriors are 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 home games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games overall. Kelly Oubre tacked on 22 points with five rebounds while DeAndre Ayton totaled 18 points and nine boards. It was alson the Suns first road win all season against a Western Conference team. "We need that energy from them because we feed of that".

Thompson finished with 28 points, while Curry had 18 markers. They honestly probably did not actually allow themselves to foresee a victory in Oakland during shoot around as the odds were stacked so high against them, hoping merely to remain competitive as long as they possibly could.

Thompson, who once made a bet with Zaza Pachulia regarding who would dunk more in a season, has been dunking with regularity throughout the current season.

Though the Warriors repeatedly have vowed to up their level of engagement down the stretch, they showed little evidence of change Sunday night against the lowly Phoenix Suns.

Japanese woman confirmed as world's oldest person at 116
The Guinness World Records organization recognized a 116-year-old Japanese woman as the world's oldest living person . They include Jiroemon Kimura, the longest-living man on record, who died soon after his 116th birthday in June 2013.

In a game the Warriors claimed they wanted, their actions did not back it up.

Granted, none of them should ever believe that they are "this close" to being a playoff team, on the contrary, they are who their record says they are. "You can't bring it every night, but still it helps".

Though Thompson went on to call the loss to the Suns the "worst of the season", - and the Warriors have now won only four out of their last 10 games - the team's other All-Star in the backcourt doesn't seem overly concerned.
