Golden State
Phoenix

[PHOENIX] — The Phoenix Suns played host to the Golden State Warriors last night but couldn't manage to leave much of an impact, failing to keep up with their visiting rivals and eventually succumbing in a 111-120 defeat. The loss bumps Phoenix's record down to 22-57 on the season, while the victory gives Golden State a 65-14 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Suns would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

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. Most importantly, the Warriors managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Curry keeps producing at this rate and Golden State keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Phoenix didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Alan Williams did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 16 points, 17 rebounds and 0 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

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.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Suns can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Phoenix wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the . The Warriors, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the New Orleans Pelicans.
