Warriors too hot to handle for Phoenix

How it happened

Former Warriors star Kevin Durant was unavailable for the Suns, missing his third straight game due to a sprained left ankle. 

The first half belonged to a red-hot Klay Thompson who led the Warriors proficiently by scoring 33 of his 38 points, while Stephen Curry chipped in with 23 points, seven rebounds, and five assists.

Phoenix remained valiant in the face of an onslaught and made two comebacks from deficits of up to 25 points, managing to cut the gap to just ten points in the fourth quarter before Thompson and Curry killed off the game.

Suns big man, DeAndre Ayton concluded the game with a solid double-double of 27 points and 12 rebounds, while Devin Booker led the Suns with 32 points on the night.

As the playoffs approach, this victory means the Warriors improve their season record to 36-30, closing in on the fourth-seeded Suns, who drop to 37-31.
