Suns look to rebound from road loss to Golden State when they host Warriors

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns suffered through one of their this week.

They hope a return to the US Airways Center will help them put that performance behind them as they try to end a three-week slump.

The Suns look to win their seventh straight home game against the Warriors tonight when the teams conclude a home-and-home series.

Phoenix has been struggling since mid-January and a meeting with the league's second-highest scoring team Wednesday night in Oakland did not help.

The Warriors scored 43 points in the first quarter and Jackson recorded his first career triple-double as Golden State beat the Suns 124-112 at Oracle Arena.

The loss was the eighth in 12 games for the Suns, who had held four of their previous six opponents below 100 points and gave up 81 to Sacramento two nights earlier.

The 124 points allowed matched their season high.

The Suns are trying to become more dominant at the US Airways Center, where they're 13-10 this season.

Phoenix has had little trouble against the Warriors at home, winning six straight and 42 of the last 47 meetings there.
