The Warriors looked to maintain the pace of the first half, but the Suns seemed poised and made a run. They went on a 7-0 run, Bledsoe hit a three and got the foul. Green was able to beat the buzzard and stop the bleeding, he has 17 so far. Turnovers continue to haunt the Warriors and they allowed the Suns to stick around. Green has been a bright spot for the Warriors, consistently active at all times. Green hits another three and now he’s 3 for 6. The Suns crawled and scratched all quarter and never let the Warriors get a comfortable lead. The Suns’ bench is outscoring the Warriors’ bench 13-8, but the Morris twins can’t hit a free throw. The Dubs are on a cold streak, haven’t hit a free throw in 4 minutes. And just like that, the Warriors opened up their lead to close the third. They’re up, but Curry commits two quick fouls in 10 seconds and he has four going into the fourth quarter.
I’m enjoying the duel between Steph Curry and Scott Foster

While the Warriors had the lead to open the quarter, both Steph Curry and Leandro Barbosa have four fouls. With no Klay Thompson tonight, the Warriors needed to be very careful for the rest of the quarter. The Suns were waiting for a time to pounce and they did. Gerald Green tied the game with a three pointer and with a little less than 10 minutes, the game was even. After a Barnes jump shot, Draymond fouled Gerald Green and gave him three free throws. Fouls have been a problem this game and with more than seven minutes left in the quarter, Curry received his fifth foul and the Warriors were in trouble. They couldn’t find a bucket and the Suns took a four point lead. Isaiah Thomas continued to live at the free throw line. Gerald Green was deadly from three point range and the Suns have the biggest lead of the game. The Warriors kept turning the ball over and the Suns had an 11 point lead with about 3:40 left in the game. 26 turnovers for the Warriors and the Suns took advantage in the second half. The Warriors lose.
