They made 13 3-pointers and shot 43 percent from the floor.
Monta Ellis scored 21 points and David Lee had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, who got within five in the fourth quarter but could not come all the way back.
This was the vintage Suns on display for most of the night.
The Warriors play the final game of their current 8-game homestand on Wednesday when Denver visits Oakland.
