Go Klay, it's your birthday...

The Warriors overcame a rough third quarter and beat the Suns 117-107. The Birthday Boy (Klay Thompson) lead the Warriors with 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists. Not bad, Klay. Now go enjoy yourself and turn up with Rocco. 

The Warriors starting five all finished in double-digits. That's the first time this season. Klay Thompson- 25 points, Kevin Durant- 21 points, Stephen Curry- 20 points, DeMarcus Cousins- 18 points, Draymond Green- 13 points. 

Stephen Curry struggled through three quarters but he found his shot in the 4th quarter when the Warriors needed him most. 

Draymond Green got ejected at the end of the 3rd quarter after being upset with the referee's non-call on Kelly Oubre Jr. He nearly headbutted Draymond, so Dray had every right to be upset. 

Cousins has been on a minutes restriction but he wasn't about to let that happen tonight. In the 4th quarter he knew his team needed him, so he went to the coaching staff and begged them not to take him out. They didn't. 

True baller. 

Turnovers definitley were an issue for the Warriors tonight. They turned the ball over 18 times. They still are leaving Phoenix with the W but the Warriors are at their best when they limit themselves to 10 or fewer turnovers. When they've committed 10 or fewer turnovers this season (10 games), they've won every single one of those games. 

The Warriors are back home at Oracle on Sunday when they take on the Miami Heat. Coverage starts with Warriors Live at 4 PM and tip-off is at 5:30 PM on 95.7 The Game.
