But still the Golden State Warriors managed to add a win for their record which now stands as the best record in the league as of now. The Phoenix Suns are currently ranked as the second seed in the western conference with the record of 26 wins and 6 looses whereas on the other hand the Golden State Warriors have redeemed their top spot in the western conference with the best record in the league of 27 wins and 6 looses.
The Golden State Warriors now are one up in their battle against the Phoenix Suns as both the teams earlier won one match-up each against each other and now the shorthanded Golden State Warriors look better than the healthy Phoenix Suns led by Devin Booker and Chris Paul as the young guns and the bench is stepping up in every situation when the team needs them to.
