NBA: Phoenix Suns at Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors have won 10 games in a row, with their last win coming against the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center. In case you were living under a rock, Steph Curry embarrassed Chris Paul and the memes have not stopped since.

Today the Warriors return home to Oracle Arena to face the Phoenix Suns. While the Warriors have locked up the number one seed in the West, they still want to go into the playoffs with some momentum.

The main focus should be to stay healthy and work on all the little things before the real season starts.
