MR. RELIABILITY
Death, taxes and as it turns out, David West entering a diversion in a second entertain are a usually things we can be certain of in life. With a Dubs new bent to start off slow, a group has leaned on a maestro large male to solid a ship, and West has delivered approach some-more mostly than not. Despite carrying a leagaues best record, a Warriors have had double number deficits in 6 of their final 7 games, including any of their 4 wins. West, along with maestro pot Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala, are mostly partial of a lineup that looks to lead a Warriors comeback, and theyve been doing only that some-more mostly than not. West has been quite effective as of late, sharpened 14-for-17 from a domain over a final 3 games. West has averaged 10.7 points during that span, and his double number scoring generally means good things for a Dubs, who are 13-1 when he has 10 or some-more points.

PHOENIX SCOUTING REPORT
The Suns are a group with copiousness of immature talent, though this deteriorate hasnt been means to put it all together. Phoenix will enter Mondays diversion carrying mislaid 10 of their final 11, and on Wednesday mislaid by 48 points during home to a Spurs, a largest domain of better in authorization history. They are within a half diversion of carrying a misfortune record in a NBA and it doesnt assistance that ensure Devin Booker, a 12th heading scorer in a NBA (24.1 ppg), has missed a final 3 games with a left hip pointer. The Suns, however, still have some splendid spots. TJ Warren had some-more than 20 points opposite a Warriors in dual games final year, rookie Josh Jackson, a fourth altogether collect in a 2017 NBA Draft, is averaging 18.7 points this month, and recently acquired indicate ensure Elfrid Payton in a deadline understanding with a Orlando Magic. Payton had 19 points and 9 assists in his Phoenix entrance on Saturday, and theres no doubt that ruin be looking to stir some-more in his new surrounding. As a team, no group allows some-more scoring than a Suns (112.6 competition ppg), and a Dubs, a top scoring group in a NBA, will positively demeanour to feat that.
