Another splendid night for the Warriors, another new chapter in the franchise record book.
This chapter is the one in which the Warriors post back-to-back 50-win seasons for the first time ever.
The Warriors on Monday night went into a place that has haunted them over the years and exorcised some demons with a 98-80 win over the Suns before a resounding chorus of Warriors fans at US Airways Center.
Stephen Curry added another page to his MVP resume, leading all scorers with 36 points. Klay Thompson put in 25 and Draymond Green added 11.
The Warriors (50-12) can play .500 basketball over their final 20 games and still be the first tam in franchise history to reach 60 wins.
The Warriors outscored Phoenix 33-12 on fast-break points, including a 22-0 start. They took over the game by outscoring the Suns 52-34 in the second half.
The Suns (33-32), who are falling completely out of the Western Conference playoff race, were led by Eric Bledsoe, who finished with 19 points.
Curry and Thompson shared the honors not only for their scoring but also for playing key roles in a devastating Warriors transition game.
Curry hit 14-of-24 shots, including 7-of-13 from beyond the arc. He added six rebounds, five assists and four steals.
Thompson was 8-of-19, 4-of-8 from deep. He added three assists, two rebounds and a blocked shot.
Clinging to a 53-52 lead with 8:49 left in the third quarter, the Warriors went on a 23-5 spurt to take a 76-57 lead with 1:41 left in the quarter.
Curry (10), Thompson (7) and Green (6) accounted for all 23 points scored during the run.
The Suns got no closer than nine (76-67, 10:27 to play) the rest of the way.
The Warriors reported no injuries during the course of the game.
The Warriors return to action Wednesday, when they face the Detroit Pistons at Oracle Arena.
