Former NBA Champions Golden State Warriors have won their 4th straight game with a comeback win over the Suns with 105-96. The home team is still among the 4 worst teams this season due to the injuries of their main players. Once again playing without Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, the Warriors managed to battle back against the Suns after trailing all the way since the 1st quarter.  

The Suns controlled the result from the beginning, with Devin Booker leading the team once again, scoring 34 points in 38 minutes. Booker’s points were not enough, as he had no help from the other players, with Rubio and Saric scoring a total of 22 points.  

Warriors managed to pull off a fantastic 4th quarter, outscoring their opponent with 39-18. This comeback came from the high percentage scoring from the field, with the Warriors shooting over 55%, while Suns managed to shoot only 33.3%, despite their 50% from the first 3 quarters.  

D’angelo Russel was the key figure in Golden State with 31 points, followed by Damion Lee with 16, Alec Burks with 13 and Glenn Robinson III scoring 12 points. With this win, the Warriors remain last in the West while Suns are currently taking the 13th seed.
