Phoenix
Golden State

[GOLDEN STATE] — The Golden State Warriors played host to the Phoenix Suns last night and the Warriors did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 120-111 victory. The win bumps Golden State's record up to 65-14 on the season, while the loss drags Phoenix's down to 22-57. Though a win's a win and Warriors fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

Team results aside, a monster night from Stephen Curry is all that fans will be talking about as they process the contest. Curry pumped out a stat line of 42 points, 5 rebounds, 11 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals in 35 minutes on the night, quantifiable proof of his place among the top tier of NBA players. Ask anybody, however - Curry included - and the most important part is that the Warriors walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Alan Williams did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Suns. Williams's 16 points, 17 rebounds and 0 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

From a personal standpoint, Stephen Curry made his presence felt from beyond the arc, toying with defenders all night long and connecting on an impressive 8 bombs. Putting a stop to any NBA calibre talent is no easy task, but even more so when they're red-hot from beyond three-point range.

Golden State's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Suns, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Warriors will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Warriors will be a date with the New Orleans Pelicans while the visiting Suns will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
