If you were at Talking Stick Resort Arena on Sunday night, or at any home game over the past few weeks, you know that Suns fans have been having an incredibly good time watching this team play the game of basketball!

They’ve been cheering, foot-stomping and jumping out of their seats on every big shot made by your friendly neighborhood team once known as an incredibly fun ticket to watch.

The Suns this year are 6-3 on the season with big wins over playoff-caliber teams in both conferences. Their total scoring margin of +70 through nine games this season (+7.8) is the 6th-largest through nine games in Suns history and largest since they were +107 points through nine games in the 2004-05 season.

Devin Booker is finally being considered an MVP candidate now that his team is winning games. National media is giving the Suns some credit for being a truly good team.


Have you been to a game this year?

Do you plan to go to the game on Tuesday night, November 12, against the hated LA Lakers?

If not, you SHOULD! Because THAT is the game we really need to support our team. And you know why.

If you’re like me, you’re used to seeing way too many yellow Lakers jerseys at these games. Even back in the SSOL days, the Laker games were the worst because of so many annoying, drunk, irrationally confident Lakers fans cheering every good Lakers play. Sometimes you’re even wondering if the Lakers cheers are louder than the Suns cheers.

Were you there last spring when the lowly Suns had their great run that included a 118-109 win over the Lakers that effectively knocked the Lakers out of the playoffs?! That was a helluva game to be a Suns fan.

Devin Booker had 25 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds in that game on March 2, 2019. Deandre Ayton had 26 points and 10 rebounds, plus three assists, 2 steals and a block. Josh Jackson, Kelly Oubre Jr. and Mikal Bridges combined for 42 points.

When was the last time you watched the Suns blow out a good opponent on the home floor? Well, if you went on Sunday night you can say LESS THAN 24 HOURS AGO in that 26-point win over Kyrie Irving’s Nets! And if you went on opening night, you can say just last month in that 29-point win over the Kings!

When was the last time you watched the Suns close out an LA opponent on the home floor? If you went on opening weekend, you can say YOU DID watch them #beatLA when they beat the Clippers by 8 with an incredible 4th quarter!

Or when they beat the previously undefeated and Finals favorite Philadelphia 76ers at home just a week ago!

These Suns are winning games and they’re making home games the greatest place to be for a Suns fan.

Come to the arena, see it LIVE, and cheer on your team!
