PHOENIX (AP) — Stephen Curry nearly had a triple-double before sitting out the fourth quarter, and the Golden State Warriors stormed into the All-Star break on an 11-game winning streak with a 112-104 victory over the free-falling Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.

Curry had 26 points, nine rebounds and nine assists for the defending NBA champions. At 48-4, the Warriors have the best record through 52 games in NBA history, one win better than the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls and 1966-67 Philadelphia 76ers. Those Bulls finished the season with a league-record 72 wins.

Klay Thompson added 24 points for Golden State.

Archie Goodwin scored 20 and Markieff Morris 19 for the Suns, who have lost nine straight and 24 of 26. Rookie guard Devin Booker added 15 points and a career-best 10 assists.
