The Warriors come into Tuesday with an NBA-best 18-2 record. They currently are on a seven-game win streak.
The Suns are right behind them with a 17-3 record. After losing their season opener to the Denver Nuggets and dropping three of their first four games, the Suns currently are on a 16-game win streak before squaring off with Golden State.
As the Warriors watched the playoffs from home last season after losing two straight play-in tournament games, the Suns shocked many by making it to the NBA Finals, where they lost to the Milwaukee Bucks in six games.
While the Warriors already have beat teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, LA Clippers, Chicago Bulls and Brooklyn Nets, this is sure to be their biggest test yet.
