On Christmas Day, the Warriors and Suns will meet for the third time this season.

The first matchup between the two teams went down to the wire, with the Suns escaping with a hard-fought 104-96 victory. Chris Paul (15 points, 11 assists) and Deandre Ayton (24 points, 11 rebounds) led the way for Phoenix while Mikal Bridges helped the Suns limit Stephen Curry to one of the worst shooting performances of his career (4-21 FG).

It didn’t take long for the Warriors to get revenge.

Less than a week later, the Warriors cruised to a 22-point victory over the Suns. Curry looked more like himself, finishing with 23 points on 6-for-11 shooting from 3-point range, but Juan Toscano-Anderson and Gary Payton II provided a big spark off the bench for the Warriors by combining for 36 points.

The showdown between the Suns and Warriors is one of five NBA games on Christmas Day. It’ll be the first time the Suns have played on Christmas Day since 2009. The Warriors have played on Christmas Day in each of the last eight seasons.

Following Christmas, the Suns and Warriors have one remaining game against each other this regular season. The final meeting will take place on March 30 in Golden State.
