The Suns should win and by a good margin, not like Spurs did but at least 10. The team just has to beat the teams that are aroud them and below them.

After spilling some of his hair gel in his hotel room, Steve Nash will slip and fall, spraining his gluteous maximus. He will not play.

Amare Stoudemire will get bad directions to the Arena because he used mapquest, he arrives in the 3rd quarter, wondering why he didn't exit on Helgenberger.

Shawn Marion will play, but will pout and feel underappreciated because Boris Diaw gets to hold the ball more than him. He will eventually ask to be traded to the Warriors at halftime. The Suns and Dubs complete the trade, sending the rights to Kosta Perovic, Zarko, and a 2nd round draft choice in 2022. In his Warriors Debut, Marion scores 30 points in 18 minutes.

Leandro Barbosa and Boris Diaw go crazy, scoring a combined 65 points unfortunately, the rest of the team scores 30.

Warriors win this one, 134-95.

warriors are done. that laker game was the nail in the coffin. the clippers would have to fall flat on their faces and we'd have to move mountains.

however, im still going to enjoy the last few weeks here, because the warriors will show some heart and still be fun to watch.

I must have read this at least 30 times this season... and we're still in the hunt. We're not done until we're mathematically out.

Both teams are struggling. Warriors have dropped the last 3 of 4. Suns have dropped the last 3 of 5. We're in the same boat as them, current losing streak wise. It's time to break out of this slump and get going. Jrich and Harrington need to come alive. Monta broke out of his little slump. Baron regained confidence against the Spurs in his offense. We need more contribution... and when that happens, the Warriors win. Last time the Suns came here, Nash made the crowd go home in silence. Time for the fans to have something to cheer about after this game is over!

Suns loss to the Kings Monday is major. Could it be that they are slowing down, tired here at the end of the year? Same thing happened last year, and the Suns dropped a few that should have been easy for them. Of course, they could also be coming out for blood, gunning down their next couple opponents.

Still, could end up being a good game. I think it will be close, and I'll be optimistic with the W's by 3.

Clips lost last night to the Rockets so this is a golden opportunity to maybe steal a win.

I agree. The Warriors have a "Golden" opportunity to gain ground on the Clippers after last night's loss. This is an absolute must win for the Warriors. I know it will be tough against the Suns, but with the game on TNT and the Warriors playoff lives at stake, I would hope and expect the Warriors to come out and give it their best shot on their home floor.

It is put up or shut up time for the Warriors. There are only ten games remaining and any more losses will significantly impact negatively the Warriors chances of getting in. I hope the Warriors come out with energy, enthusiasm and play with a sense of urgency as they should. If the team comes out, plays hard and gives it their all, that is all we can ask. I would guess if they do play that way though it will result in a win.

I think the Warriors will win a thriller tonight!!

am at the game tonight, and am psyched. The chance to see my 2 favorite teams play is tremendous. The ws have had 10 games in the last 12 where they either won or played well enough to win (blazers and spurs are the anomalies). Phoenix is going to be motivated as well, because the last thing they want to do is give up home court to the Spurs. There will be beaucoup points tonight. How about 127-122 Ws? (Once a fan always a fan.)

the best way to win is to take advantage of each mistake the suns make and make our runs when nash, stoudamire or marion are on the bench. If we lose, we're not mathematically out of it but we're gonna be sure damn close.

So.. To summarize, WIN DAMMIT!

Its on TNT, so you can bet i'll be watching.

this is going to be a high scoring game with points going back to back. the only way the warriors can win is to shoot at a high percentage and out score the suns while capitalizing on all of the turnovers that the suns make...the piranha defense of the warriors, the urgency to get a playoff spot, and being at home will make this an exciting game. too bad i won't get to watch it :[
