The Warriors are the only remaining undefeated team in the NBA. They’ve done a good job on both ends of the floor and have had great performances from their key players. Steph Curry has been himself on offense, but a thief on the defense, averaging 3.2 steals per game.
The Suns host the Warriors tonight and this matchup will be another big test for the Dubs. Head coach Jeff Hornacek is anticipating a hard fought game, especially the way the Warriors have been playing defense. According to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group, Hornacek has seen a better defensive effort from the Warriors this season:
Suns coach Jeff Hornacek: Warriors playing defense w/ “a little more effort” than last season when he saw them save themselves for offense.

The Warriors were actually pretty good defensively last season, so this could explain why the Warriors are undefeated. The Dubs have showed great tenacity by keeping the game close and getting key stops at crucial moments. Defense wins championships and if the Dubs want to continue this streak, it starts by getting stops.
Andre Iguodala is having a great time with the second unit and the backcourt is clearly the best in the league. Injuries have kept them from fulfilling their potential, which is a scary thought if they are able to get fully healthy.
