The Suns may be slightly affected if Bradley Beal is listed as probable due to a right ankle sprain. Damion Lee is still out after the knee surgery. The Suns are anticipating the absence of Chris Paul, who is probably out with a broken left hand, but they could get Gary Payton II back after he missed 16 straight games with a hamstring injury.
It is indicative of the kind of strategic selves the Suns and the Warriors are gearing up with, where the starting line-ups and the depth charts are concerned. The Suns come with Devin Booker, Bradley Beal, Grayson Allen, Kevin Durant, and Jusuf Nurkic as starters.
The Warriors come with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Jonathan Kuminga, and Draymond Green. Key matchups to watch keenly will be the Suns' defense trying to stop Steph Curry on offense, especially with his scorching performance in the last game.
The Suns may employ double-teaming strategies to limit his influence, but the off-ball prowess clearly poses a big threat. Another interesting matchup will be that between Draymond Green and Kevin Durant. Whatever the history off the court, their fight on the court may be the decider in the game.
With both teams having Hall of Fame-caliber scorers, this game could develop into an absolute barn-burner that will have NBA fans' eyes glued to the TV.
