Phoenix Suns defeated Golden State to win two consecutive games
Phoenix thrashed Golden State.
The Phoenix Suns beat the Gold State Warriors 134-105 in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season at Phoenix Footprint Center on the 26th. Phoenix, who won two consecutive games with the victory, recorded three wins and one loss.
Devin Booker continued his recent good form with 34 points. On top of that, Jock Rendale showed a surprise performance of 17 points on the bench, erasing the team’s weakness. In Golden State, Stephen Curry scored 21 points, but Clay Thompson scored only two points, showing sluggish performance.
Phoenix’s offensive in the first quarter was fierce. Phoenix, who took the lead with Devin Booker’s three-point shot in the middle of the quarter, widened the gap with Chris Paul’s three-point shot following a series of free throws by Cameron Johnson and Booker. Golden State also chased with Moses Moody’s performance, but Phoenix, who showed off its firepower to explode 37 points in the first quarter alone, led 37-29 in the first quarter.
At the beginning of the second quarter, Golden State’s counterattack with Jordan Poole was unfolded. Phoenix faced a crisis by allowing a tie in an instant, but kept the lead with Rendale’s consecutive goals. Phoenix, who has maintained a slight advantage despite Golden State’s persistent pursuit attempt, finished the first half 72-66 with Paul’s pleasant three-point shot just before the end of the quarter.
The gap between the two teams widened in earnest in the third quarter. Golden State has been shaken sharply since Thompson, who was engaged in a war of nerves with Booker, was sent off in the middle of the quarter. Phoenix, who did not miss the gap, quickly ran away by double digits with an accurate free throw. Since then, the gap has gradually widened amid Phoenix’s unilateral offensive, and Phoenix ended the third quarter with 105-86.
With the momentum already over, the fourth quarter didn’t mean much. Phoenix continued its stable flow in the fourth quarter to maintain its lead, and in the end, Golden State raised its white flag. Phoenix, who did not lose concentration until the end, harvested a great victory by 29 points.
