Arizona’s professional sports teams are riding an unprecedented wave of dominance – at least in the NFL and the NBA.

Following last night’s win over the Detroit Pistons, the Phoenix Suns have set a franchise record with their 18th straight win.

They now have the best record in the NBA with 19-wins and just three losses.

Meanwhile, the Arizona Cardinals are the best team in the NFL. They have the top win percentage in the league and are one of only two teams with nine wins at this point in the season.

After a week off, the Cardinals will face the Bears in Chicago this Sunday, and the Suns will be take on the second best team in the NBA tonight, the Golden State Warriors.

Suns leading scorer Devin Booker will not play due to a hamstring injury.
