2014/2015 Phoenix Suns Schedule

The Phoenix Suns begin and end their 2014-15 season schedule in Los Angeles. They open at the Staples Center on October 29 and finish their regular season run there again on April 14. The Phoenix Suns have struggled the last few seasons and because of this Phoenix Suns ticket sales have been poor.

Phoenix Suns History

The Phoenix Suns entered the NBA as an expansion team in 1968. The Suns have been a very successful franchise and are statistically the team with the most wins to never have won an NBA Championship. The Suns were one of the most successful teams in the 1980s and 1990s; qualifying for the playoffs twenty-one out of twenty-four seasons. The Suns made the NBA Finals in 1976 and 1993 but lost to the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls respectively. Phoenix remained consistent playoff qualifiers in the late 1990s and early 2000s but were unable to make a serious impact. The Suns became a serious contender again in 2004/2005 with Steve Nash and Amar'e Stoudemire leading the franchise to the Western Conference Finals as well as three Pacific Division titles. The Suns have been in rebuilding mode the last few seasons and are looking for new stars to replace Stoudemire and Nash.

Phoenix Suns Star Player: Goran Dragic

Dragic began his professional career in the year 2003 at the age of 17 with the Slovenian 2D League club Ilirija Ljubljana. He entered the NBA five years later, selected 45th overall by the Spurs, before being traded to the Phoenix Suns for Malik Hairston. He would spend a season with Houston as well as a stint with a Spanish team due to the NBA lockout before returning to the Suns in 2012. In 2014 Dragic became the sixth player to join the 20-50-40 club (with fellow members including LeBron James and Kevin Durant) which means he averaged 20 or more points per game while shooting 50%+ from the field and 40%+ on three-pointers. He would later win the NBA Most Improved Player Award for the season, helping the Suns finish their best season in four years. He will be an integral part to their 2014/2015 campaign.

Phoenix Suns Star From the Past: Alvan Adams

Alvan Adams was selected with the fourth overall pick of the 1975 NBA draft. Adams had an incredible rookie season and led the Phoenix Suns all the way to the 1976 NBA Finals. Adams was named NBA Rookie of the Year and selected as an NBA All-Star for his efforts. While Adams was never able to replicate the heights of his rookie season he was still the undisputed leader of the Phoenix Suns roster and one of the most consistent players in the NBA. Adams retired in 1988, after thirteen seasons for the Suns, and is the Phoenix Suns franchise leader for games played, rebounds and steals.

Phoenix Suns Head Coach: Jeff Hornacek

Jeff Hornacek started as head coach for the Phoenix Suns in 2013. Before that he worked as an assistant with the Utah Jazz from 2011-13. Hornacek has stated that his coaching style is reminiscent to that of Cotton Fitzsimmons and Jerry Sloan, who both coached him back when he played for the coaches' respective teams. Hornacek was 5-2 in pre-season and he started the 2013-14 NBA season with a 104-91 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers and an 87-84 victory over the Utah Jazz, both times at home. Hornacek also became the team's first ever head coach to start out his coaching stint with a 4-0 record at home games. Hornacek was also the runner-up coach in the NBA Coach of the Year Award voting to three time winner Gregg Popovich. Everyone will be watching to see how he does in 2014/2015.
