Warriors vs Suns – Postgame Wrap (5/11/21)

KXSF

The Warriors defeated the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night by a final score of 122 to 116. The Warriors are now 4-0 on their final homestand after defeating the Thunder twice and the Utah Jazz last night. The Warriors are now 7-3 in their last 10 games; they’ve already secured a berth in the new play-in tournament but do have two games left this season (Pelicans on Friday, Grizzlies on Sunday).

 


COLD CURRY, WILD WIGGINS

Stephen Curry didn’t do anything crazy tonight by going 1-11 from beyond the arc – good for just 21 (actually quite low by Curry standards since he’s been averaging 37.2 ppg over the last 22 games). With Curry off, Andrew Wiggins came up in a big way by dropping 38 points on the night. Wiggins made a few highlight reel-worthy plays and outscored Phoenix’s Devin Booker by four points. Also, note that Wiggins recorded his third 20-point half of the season with 21 points (10-of-13 FG) in the first half.

 


DRAYMOND “TRIPLE DOUBLE” GREEN

Last night Draymond Green secured his 16th double-double of the season by scoring 12 points and dishing out 10 assists. Coming into tonight Draymond ranked 4th in the NBA with 8.8 assists per game. Tonight, he was even better. He recorded his 6th TRIPLE double of the season (29th of his career) by scoring 11 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists.


FUN FACT

The Warriors are now 29-1 in regular season games in which Green records a triple-double.
