Phoenix Suns vs Golden State Warriors Prediction comes before their NBA regular season clash on Friday, March 5th 2021, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Phoenix Suns vs Golden State Warriors Preview

Damian Lillard had shot 5-of-16 with five turnovers and just 2-of-9 from three-point range with little over 15 seconds left. It didn't matter. The perennial All-Star guard proved why he's so highly-regarded, sinking a deep three-pointer with 13.7 seconds to go as Portland sealed a gritty 108-106 win over Golden State overnight. 

On his thought process as the clock continued ticking, he said: 

"Now is the time where I've got to force it, to create the opportunity, even if it's a tough one.

Whatever happens I've got to put my foot on the gas a little bit more, and try to make something happen." 

He and Carmelo Anthony had 22 points as Portland held their nerve despite Stephen Curry's 35-point effort on the other end. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr wasn't particularly surprised, citing Lillard's ability to make big plays even when he's struggling as the catalyst to their narrow loss.  

Golden State was left without Kelly Oubre Jr (15.5 PPG, 5.9 rebs) because of a sprained wrist sustained in practice earlier this past week. Kent Bazemore started in his place and is expected to do the same again overnight, against an even stiffer Western Conference challenge in Phoenix.

Phoenix Suns vs Golden State Warriors Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is giving the Suns a razor-thin edge (50.3%), and it makes sense: 12 wins in their last 14, stifling the Lakers even after Devin Booker's soft ejection Wednesday. I'm backing them to finish strong during their final game before a week-long All-Star break begins.
