Phoenix Suns Tickets
Phoenix Suns Tickets
The Phoenix Suns are members of the Pacific Division in the NBA's Western Conference. Founded in 1968, the team has since won six division titles and two conference titles; however, the Suns have yet to win an NBA Championship. The Suns play at the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1992, the team moved to its new downtown arena and began the ""Charles Barkley era,"" which lasted from 1992 to 1996.
US Airways Center, Home to the Phoenix Suns
The Phoenix Suns have played in the 18,422-seat US Airways Center since knocking off the Los Angeles Clippers here, 111-105, on Nov. 7, 1992. At the end of that 1992-93 season, the Suns played the Chicago Bulls here in games one, two, and six of the NBA Finals. The 1995 and 2009 All-Star Games were held at the US Airways Center. The facility has served as the home of the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury since 1997. The Mercury played host to WNBA Finals games in 1998, 2007, and 2009. Additionally, the US Airways Center was the home of the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes from 1996-2003.
Phoenix Suns and the Western Conference
The Pacific Division of the Western Conference includes the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings, and Phoenix Suns. As a member of the Pacific Division, the Phoenix Suns compete each year for the division title against its rival Los Angeles Lakers. Despite the Lakers championship history, the Suns have claimed six division titles and two conference championships. Although the Suns have visited the NBA Finals in 1976 and 1993, the team lost each match-up against the Boston Celtics and the Chicago Bulls.
Phoenix Suns 2012 Team Outlook
A new era is dawning for the Phoenix Suns as the team looks to phase in a crop of promising youngsters in place of its aging veterans. The changes began last season when Amare Stoudemire left Phoenix to join the New York Knicks as a free agent and the Suns traded away leading scorer Jason Richardson for Vince Carter. Carter, Steve Nash, and Grant Hill all return to provide veteran leadership. Nash is not producing at NBA MVP levels like he was a few years ago, but is still one of the game's best point guards after coming off a season where he posted 14.7 points and 11.4 assists per game. Marcin Gortat may become the next star for Phoenix. The center was acquired in a trade with Orlando last season and debuted with 13.0 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game for the Suns. Phoenix will be in the mix for a playoff spot, but not much more beyond that.
