The Golden State Warriors' big three are beginning to click into gear. It's now four straight wins for the Dubs since their loss to the L.A. Lakers, and they currently boast an 8-2 record.

Last night's win over the Phoenix Suns saw the Warriors record a season-best 133 points as they ran out 13-point winners, and the trio of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson combined for 89. Draymond Green added 14 as only 30 points came from outside of the four 2016 All-Stars.

The game was a showcase of how devastating the Bay Area team can be as Thompson dropped 14 points in the fourth quarter to finish with 30, while Curry and Durant scored 30 and 29 respectively. However, you get the sense they were still not at 100%.

Shooting 12-22 from deep, the trio produced a number of highlight plays, but they don't get any better than they below passage of play that saw Durant block a Devin Booker layup before Curry drops a 30-foot three-pointer in transition. If anything highlights how devastating and instant their attacks can be, this was it.

Golden State are the highest scoring team in the league by some distance; their 116.4 a night is some way ahead of the Atlanta Hawks's 109.6, but their defence leaves a lot to be desired.

Giving up 108.2 points per night, they have the fourth leakiest defence in the Western Conference. The 'we'll score more than you' style is certainly entertaining, but Steve Kerr will surely want to address the issue sooner rather than later.
