Golden State Warriors vs. Phoenix Suns: Play-by-play, highlights and reactions


The Golden State Warriors (18-2) play against the Phoenix Suns (3-3) at Footprint Center

Game Time: 10:00 PM EST on Tuesday November 30, 2021

Golden State Warriors 54, Phoenix Suns 56 (Half)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Really stinks that the Suns lose Devin Booker for not only this game, but good chance he misses Friday’s rematch in the Bay. Still should be a very fun second half, though. Phoenix did a great job limiting Golden State’s offense in the second quarter. – 11:08 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Would be surprised if Monty threw someone into the rotation without Booker in the second half. No obvious choice. Payton is another PG, the two-way wings and then Smith. Think he sticks with 8 guys. More time for Johnson and Shamet. – 11:07 PM
Michael Gallagher @MikeSGallagher
Mikal Bridges not making an All-Defense Team last year was one of the biggest snubs in years.
Can’t imagine it happens again. – 11:07 PM
Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Interesting game for plus-minus watching, and bummer Booker is out for the rest of game. The best want to play the best at full strength. – 11:06 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Warriors-Suns is absolutely freaking outstanding. It’s also been an absolute showcase for why Deandre Ayton is going to get a max this summer from someone. Excellent on defense in space against the toughest matchup in the league there. Killer on O glass. Finishing inside. – 11:06 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Suns up 2 at the half. Pretty uneven (but good) game. Warriors held to 19 points in the second quarter after getting 35 in the first. Curry 3-of-13. Suns have 17 assists on 22 field goals. – 11:06 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Warriors have to feel good being down just two — given that Steph is just 3-for-13 from the field. That has to be his roughest half of the season. – 11:06 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Mikal Bridges’ swat on Steph Curry right before the half had the Footprint LOUD

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Suns did a great job on Steph Curry in first half: 3/13 FG, Ayton/Bridges blocked his last two shots. Jordan Poole had 18. Otto Porter hit four 3s. Phoenix up two. But the Devin Booker hamstring injury is half’s biggest story. Out 2nd half, presumably should miss Friday rematch. – 11:05 PM
Kevin Pelton @kpelton
Over the last 7:25 of the first half, the Warriors shot 1-of-13. – 11:05 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Told y’all Suns have good options against Steph. Doesn’t mean he can’t still go off, but it’s a worthy adversary – 11:05 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
oh it’s “Ayton puts it in! He puts it in!” loud in here. – 11:04 PM
Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42
And that play by Mikal Bridges on Steph Curry is why he should be All-Star worthy when we get to mid-February.
One of the elite defenders in this league. – 11:04 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Warriors are the classic “You’ve got to break a few eggs to make the omelette” team. They have always been a high turnover team, but that’s the price for all their ball and player movement. They have always been able to get away with it because they’re such a good defensive team – 11:04 PM
Ryan McDonough @McDNBA
I’ve seen 3 teams tonight who’d thrive in the Western Conference Finals
the Warriors and Suns (in 2021)
and
the Lakers (if their current roster played in the 2012 WCF) – 11:03 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Halftime: PHX 56, GSW 54
Booker: 10 Pts, 4-9 FG (will not return – hamstring)
Ayton: 11 Pts, 6 Reb, 5-8 FG
Johnson: 9 Pts
Poole: 18 Pts, 6-9 FG – 11:03 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
With Devin Booker out for rest of game with left hamstring injury, this is something that he’s had before and came back from.
So for the long term, he’ll be back.
For short term, #Suns can go a bunch of different ways, but right now, it’s Paul, Payne, Bridges, Johnson and Ayton – 11:03 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Deandre Ayton just blocked a Steph Curry 3?? That’s a real-life unicorn event – 11:03 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
That Bridges TO is on CP. He got the deflection, and then just kept walking towards his own baseline, never coming down. Bridges got caught in the air, expecting someone to be trailing the play behind him and CP is in the backcourt. – 11:01 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Devin Booker out with hamstring soreness. Really deflating because if nothing else, it’s a really intense game – 11:01 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Phoenix suns say Devin Booker (left hamstring) will not return to the game. – 11:01 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Devin Booker out for the rest of this game with a hamstring issue. Something to watch for the Celtics, who are in Phoenix a week from Friday. Suns could be shorthanded if there’s a prolonged absence. – 11:01 PM

CP jumper for the tie! 😤
50-50 with 3:46 left in the second. – 10:55 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Warriors scored only 2 points in that 3 minute stint without Curry. Those came on a 3 shot foul on Poole at the very end of the shot clock. – 10:55 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Big surge from the Suns to tie it up at 50 without Book. They went on an 8-2 run with Curry out. That +6 in the non-Curry minutes is more like it – 10:55 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Booker not on the bench as he may have hurt something on that drive.
He was upset while walking after getting up. #Suns10:55 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Crowder called for foul on Poole 3, but took foot or something in that area. Coming out the game.
Poole misses first two FTs.
Makes 3rd. #Suns down four. – 10:52 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Monty Williams talked pregame about Otto Porter Jr. shooting.
Porter 9 points on 3-of-5 shooting. #Suns down 5. Timeout Phoenix with 5:59 left in half. #DubNation pic.twitter.com/nSw4cHoyBt10:52 PM

Matt Steinmetz @SteinmetzNBA
Biggest problem NBA has with Curry/Warriors is he/they score too much against strategized defense. – 10:50 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Booker scores four in a row when it looked like we were headed toward a Warriors explosion. He’s been great for a few years now at little 2-3 minute pockets of much needed solo offense in weird sections of the game – 10:48 PM
Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
A game at this pace is a reminder why Klay’s not ready yet. Soon. – 10:47 PM

David Locke @DLocke09
The Phoenix Suns and the Golden State warriors both play with incredible speed – 10:45 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Well the Warriors missed but then got the rebound and found someone open by the name of Stephen Curry. Warriors now up 9. – 10:45 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Can’t give up that many offensive rebounds to the Warriors. Ends with one of those demoralizing Steph Curry 3s you already know is going in before it leaves his hand – 10:45 PM
Tas Melas @TasMelas
Should Poole and Porter start in place of Curry and Klay? – 10:44 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Curry looking for the foul as he drew contact on Bridges.
Now part of that could be refs thought it was a non-basketball move as Bridges was in solid position.
The other part of it is Bridges has established himself as an elite defender in the eyes of the refs.
#Suns down 6 – 10:43 PM

Jordan Poole is on a $2.16M rookie scale contract this season.
He has outplayed his contract by $16.5M this season.
Poole is extension eligible in the offseason.

Malik Monk just dribbled the ball off his heel and out of bounds attempting to dribble behind his back in the backcourt. In case you’re wondering how things are going over here in the Not PHX-GSW game. – 10:37 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors have used a 2-3 zone for a handful of possessions already tonight. You can see Mike Brown jump off the bench with the double fist up. Led to a Gary Payton II deflection/steal and Jordan Poole transition 3 on this possession. pic.twitter.com/NSOyLcbcEV10:35 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Obvious time: Take away Steph and the defense has to give something up elsewhere. Enter Jordan Poole with a 16 point first quarter. He’s 6-7, 4-5. Warriors shooting 61% FG. Suns 50 FG%. Hold on to your butts. – 10:34 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS

Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
It’s wild Jordan Poole is gonna be coming off the bench as soon as Klay returns. Dude’s a bucket. Poole was so raw as a rookie but always has this fearlessness, just plays a much more seasoned game now. Warriors really nailed it with some of their young guys. – 10:33 PM
John Schuhmann @johnschuhmann
Wasn’t a very fast-paced quarter, w/ some offensive boards extending possessions. Suns & Warriors combined for 65 points on 47 possessions (1.38 per). – 10:33 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Thought Monty might go with The Stagger for the first time this year but Paul and Booker were both on the bench to close the first quarter. Bridges checked back in for Booker at 1:37 to match Curry.
Suns down 4 after the Warriors hit six 3s and shot 61%. Curry only had 3 pts tho – 10:31 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
End of 1Q: GSW 35, PHX 31
Ayton: 9 Pts, 4 Reb, 4-6 FG
Crowder: 6 Pts, 2-3 3P
McGee: 6 Pts
Poole: 16 Pts, 6-7 FG – 10:31 PM
Ryan McDonough @McDNBA
Jordan Poole made just 33% of his fg’s and 28% of his 3’s as a rookie
Two seasons later, he’s a Most Improved Player candidate who starts for the 18-2 Warriors
The young man’s hard work has paid off! – 10:31 PM

Poole has 16 (4-of-5 from 3) to lead Golden State. Warriors 6-of-11 on 3s. – 10:30 PM

Poole again from 3.
#Suns down 28-22. – 10:25 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Jordan Poole is playing with no fear. He’s already got 13 points and is stepping into one shot after another. A big key against a Suns team that loves getting up and down the floor. – 10:25 PM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
The Warriors need Wiseman back at some point just for Ayton. – 10:25 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
This is playing out like many Warriors games. The opponent doles out a good early blow and the Warriors kind of eat it. – 10:24 PM

Jordan Poole is one of those dudes who can just score. He’s already up to 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting, 3-of-4 from deep. Timeout Suns, down 25-22 – 10:22 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Warriors junk it up with zone. Shamet gets a good look from 3 but misses it, then it’s a turnover.
Monty said on Monday they were prepared for those random possessions where Golden State will do this with a few different looks.
Monty calls a timeout. – 10:21 PM

Draymond Green saying he took an elbow to face of Ayton on the lob attempt, but was called for the foul.
Green argued the call for at least 10 seconds.
Ayton splits FTs. #Suns up 22-17. – 10:20 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Shamet checks in before Payne, which is a new wrinkle.
CP3-Booker-Shamet has played 9 total minutes this year.
And here comes Payne for Paul so there goes the 2 minutes I spent on this sigh – 10:19 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Looks like Monty Williams is going to match Mikal Bridges’ minutes with Steph Curry’s – 10:19 PM
Brian Geltzeiler @BGeltzNBA
Curry has to be very careful wandering too far of Crowder one pass away – 10:18 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Draymond on the short roll is still one of the most dependable looks in the NBA. – 10:18 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
There haven’t been many examples so far this year — but the Warriors could definitely use Wiseman’s size and length against this Suns team. He brings a different dimension that they don’t have right now. – 10:16 PM

Warriors 2-of-5 from 3.
Curry 3 on 1-of-3 shooting. – 10:15 PM

Devin Booker lost Steph Curry on that one. Pretty – 10:09 PM
J. Michael Falgoust @ThisIsJMichael
What makes Golden State so good…Draymond’s passing. Curry’s screening. When the best shooter in the game screens as aggressively as he does, puts so much stress on the defense, guys like Looney get layups. – 10:09 PM

Per Kerr, Andrew Wiggins, who’s on the injury report as questionable with back spasms, will warm up and see if he can go versus the Suns. The spasms flared up this morning. – 8:34 PM

Steve Kerr didn’t have an update on Andrew Wiggins, who was a late add to the injury report. Nothing serious but if his back spasms are bothering him too much he will sit. – 8:33 PM

Andrew Wiggins is still a game-time decision. Back spasms flared up this morning. He will test it pregame in Phoenix. – 8:33 PM

Dueling MVP chants from the Knicks and Nets fans here, which I guess means they are hoping to make it to a bar in time to watch the start of Steph Curry and the Warriors after this game. – 8:30 PM

Monty Williams was asked about Steph Curry’s ability to get shots off from anywhere and make them. He laughed.

James Harden looks like someone who senses his team needs him to score. Different looking player than the last game against the Suns for sure. – 7:45 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
From @BKN_NETSPR: James Harden (1-of-1 3FG) just knocked down the 2,500th 3-pointer of his career.
He becomes the fourth player in NBA history to make 2,500 threes, joining Ray Allen (2,973), Stephen Curry (2,937) and Reggie Miller (2,560).
Miller is here calling the game for TNT – 7:38 PM

James Harden just became the fourth NBA player ever with 2,500 career 3-pointers. He joins Ray Allen (2,973), Stephen Curry (2,937) and Reggie Miller (2,560) as the only players in NBA history to make 2,500 or more 3-pointers. pic.twitter.com/RsQ40qThF77:36 PM

Greetings from Barclays Center. Nets-Knicks tip shortly. Good test for BK. Curious to see what the Nets’ rotations look like after James Johnson was the lone reserve to log 12+ minutes against Phoenix. Does Cam Thomas get a bigger role? Updates to follow. – 7:25 PM

Before the Warriors and Suns face off tonight, I wrote about why I have them as the top two teams in the league.
You can see where I placed the rest of the league in my most recent NBA power rankings, too:

Through it all, there’s been one constant:
Steph & Dray.
Somehow, someway…
They are basketball, in the Bay.
Learn these lessons, before May.

I’m being told Frank Kaminsky isn’t out for the season with the stress reaction to his right knee.
Still haven’t heard it timetable on his return, but he’s still out indefinitely. Have seen him doing rehab in a weight room area next to the courts.
Missed last seven games. #Suns4:37 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
#Suns have only had 1 sellout home game this season out of 10.
I’m sensitive to people who can’t afford 🎟. Times are hard.
TickPick says avg. ticket 💵 #Warriors game tonight $167.
Avg. 💵 last season? $77.
BUT can’t call Phoenix a basketball town if tonight isn’t sold out. pic.twitter.com/x8baF4kL7c4:34 PM

great stat via @jj_redick:
The Warriors are one of only 5 teams in the NBA this season to make more than 400 shots within five feet of the rim.
GSW is shooting a league-best 69% on those close-range attempts.
