Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Suns vs Lakers

Rival Team: Los Angeles Lakers

The Suns-Lakers rivalry has been raging since 1970 when Phoenix blew a 3-1 playoff lead against the Lakers. The two teams have also both played in the Pacific Division for much of their history meaning they have squared off many times in the regular and postseason over the years. In the mid-2000s the rivalry was particularly intense thanks to the two teams being among the best in the Western Conference. There’s always bad blood when these two get together, so don’t miss the Lakers when they come to town.

Suns vs Spurs

Rival Team: San Antonio Spurs

The Suns and Spurs have met in the playoffs ten times since 1992, which has led to the development of a deep-rooted hatred between these two Western Conference teams. In the early 90s, the Suns got the best of The Admiral and the Spurs. However, a decade later the Spurs would get their revenge as they stopped the Steve Nash-led Suns dead in their track a few times in the mid to late 2000s. If you want to see Talking Stick Resort Arena come to life, then make sure to attend a Suns-Spurs game.
