Draymond Green on their loss to the Phoenix Suns: “We didn’t have much ball
movement. We didn’t have much player movement. We kind of fell into the switches and let them set their
defense. I think we could have moved around a bit more.” pic.twitter.com/Fvanf9UPrt3:18 AM

The Suns defense bottled up Steph Curry and the Warriors. Here’s a look at how. theathletic.com/2990222/2021/1…2:58 AM

Everyone still insanely packed together entering the second quarter of the NBA season.
After the top five (Phoneix, GSW, Brooklyn, Utah and Chicago), two games..two..separate the next 14 teams.

The Suns were a +36 in crunch-time and had an 8-1 record in games involving crunch-time (both league-bests) entering the day.
Even without one of the NBA’s best closers in Devin Booker, they outscored the Warriors 12-5 in the clutch tonight – 1:32 AM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Via @ESPNStatsInfo: “Tonight was the 329th game of Stephen Curry’s career in which he attempted at least 20 shots. It was the first one of those games where he shot under 20 percent. (4-for-21 — 19 percent)” – 1:28 AM

I was glad @Stan Van Gundy highlighted this subtle play by Deandre Ayton on the broadcast so I made a video about how his hustle and Chris Paul’s patience created this Jae Crowder 3.

Ayton doing that to the Warriors is why the Bucks are still the NBA favorites.
Because what Giannis did to Ayton in the NBA Finals would be three-fold against what he would do to the Warriors frontline. – 12:30 AM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Here’s the story of tonight’s game:
Golden State typically dominates the third quarter. Tonight, it was a 24-all tie.

Guess Mavs can lay claim to playing Suns tough both games in Phoenix. Then again T-Wolves only lost to them by 3 and the Spurs by 4. Bottom line is Suns find a way to win in the 4th, thanks largely to Chris Paul. – 12:25 AM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
The Suns are the best team the Warriors have played by far. They got a good feel of what winning the West would take — especially the players who haven’t been here before. On both ends, the Suns are TOUGH – 12:24 AM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
The Suns aren’t just the best team in the NBA right now. They’re also the most versatile. I have no idea what their weaknesses are. They’ll slow down fast teams, speed up slow ones; they’ll go big or small; they’ll throw a million different defenses at you. So versatile. – 12:24 AM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob

Third Warriors loss of the season. They had 22 turnovers. They only scored 19, 24, 18 points the last three quarters. Steph Curry went 4/21 shooting. Phoenix defense took everything away. Rematch on Friday in SF. – 12:20 AM

Draymond is my DPOY favorite so far this season but Mikal Bridges belongs in the conversation.
It’s usually an award for bigs but Bridges has been extraordinary all season, just like tonight vs. Steph.
Somehow, Bridges is only +12000 to win it on FanDuel—the 29th-highest odds. – 11:51 PM

Through three quarters Chris Paul is +15 and Stephen Curry is -13,. Suns win if that trend holds up. We’ll see. Curry is 4-of-19. First Team is doing an unreal job on him. – 11:49 PM

What makes Golden State so good…Draymond’s passing. Curry’s screening. When the best shooter in the game screens as aggressively as he does, puts so much stress on the defense, guys like Looney get layups. – 10:09 PM

Andrew Wiggins just finished his pregame workout in Phoenix. Nodded to trainer Drew Yoder “I’m good,” so it appears he’s a go against the Suns. But monitor the way he moves early. Pregame workout was light. Back spasms this morning. – 8:52 PM

Per Kerr, Andrew Wiggins, who’s on the injury report as questionable with back spasms, will warm up and see if he can go versus the Suns. The spasms flared up this morning. – 8:34 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Steve Kerr didn’t have an update on Andrew Wiggins, who was a late add to the injury report. Nothing serious but if his back spasms are bothering him too much he will sit. – 8:33 PM

Andrew Wiggins is still a game-time decision. Back spasms flared up this morning. He will test it pregame in Phoenix. – 8:33 PM

Monty Williams talked about how when they were in Orlando bubble they had 10 to 12 players for voluntary practices and sharing courts with other teams that had 1, 2 players.
