NBA Christmas Games: Golden State Warriors Win Thanks to Otto Porter Jr. in Phoenix

The Golden State Warriors created an exclamation point for the Phoenix Suns. In the duel between the two best teams in the NBA, Dubs won 116: 107. Stephen Curry is the best man again, but Otto Porter Jr. suddenly appeared in times of crisis.

Golden State Warriors (27-6) – Phoenix Suns (26-6) 107: 116 (BOXSCORE)

The Warriors star provided 33 points (10/27 FG). Setting a new personal record for Christmas (previously only 19 points), but just missed another milestone. With five changing threes (with 16 attempts), Curry now has 2,999 long-range throws in his career.

But Curry also had enough support in Phoenix, especially in times of crisis. When Phoenix returned to -2 it was Porter Jr. (19, 8/13), Who won the Warriors with three changing players and 7-0.

Draymond Green (8, 7 boards, 10 assists) and Gary Payton II (14, 9 boards) were delivered on both ends of the field, and the same was true of Jonathan Kuminga (12), who only saw more minutes during the guest appearance in Toronto. The rookie was an invigorating element and could annoy Suns star Chris Paul at times. Point God scored 21 points and 8 assists, but the old player was already at 16 points at the break. Otherwise, Sun’s points were well distributed again, but Devin Booker (13, 5/19) had some problems with the throw.

Golden State started like a fire department and made the already powerful Suns Defense look bad a few times. Curry tore many holes with his presence, and Greene was on both sides of the field. Phoenix, on the other hand, played extraordinarily sporadically. It only got a little better when the warriors had some reservists in the field. The Suns relied on economies of scale with Ayton and Javal McGee.
