  • Phoenix will kick things off with a home game, at Talking Stick Resort Arena, for the fifth consecutive season when they host the Dallas Mavericks. It will be Tyson Chandler‘s first game in a Suns uniform and will take on his former team right from the get-go.

    Phoenix’s first four games will all be against playoff teams from last year (Mavericks, two against the Trailblazers, and one against the Clippers). The Suns will then have six of their next seven games at home with some winnable games on the dock with the Kings, Pistons, Nuggets, and Lakers coming to town.

    The defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors will make their first appearance in Phoenix on November 27. The game against the Dubs will be their last home game before an East Coast trip that’ll plot the Suns against the Raptors, Nets, Pistons, Wizards, Grizzlies, and Bulls.

    The Suns will host the Cleveland Cavaliers on December 28 in their final home game of the 2015 calendar year. Phoenix will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in Oklahoma City on New Years Eve for the fourth time in the past five years.

    Goran Dragic, Zoran Dragic, Gerald Green, and Amar’e Stoudemire will all make their returns to Phoenix when the Heat visit the Suns on January 8. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know to not expect a warm welcome back for Goran.

    LaMarcus Aldridge and the San Antonio Spurs come to Phoenix on January 21. It’ll be Aldridge’s first time back in the desert after deciding to sign with the Spurs over the Suns in the offseason. Phoenix kicks off a four-game road trip against the 76ers, Cavaliers, Knicks, and Mavericks to end January.

    February is one of the more unusual months on the Suns schedule this year. The Suns have 10 games listed for the month with nine of the 10 games in Phoenix. Unfortunately, eight of the Suns 10 opponents in the month of February had better records than the Suns in 2014.

    The Suns have home games against the Raptors, Rockets, Jazz, Thunder, Warriors, Rockets, and Spurs before their lone road game of the month against the Clippers. Phoenix will then come home to play the Grizzlies and the Nets.

    March will be a busy month for Phoenix as they have 16 games in the month. The Suns will have two games against the Lakers in March, as well as a home game against the Knicks. Phoenix will play in Oakland against the Warriors on March 12. Brandon Knight will make his return to Milwaukee on March 30 when the Suns face off against the Bucks.

    Phoenix closes out the regular season with a tough stretch with six of their last eight opponents being playoff teams from 2014. The Suns’ last regular season game will be against the Los Angeles Clippers on April 13.

    The Suns have moved their four Sunday home games start times up from 6:00 p.m. MST to earlier tip-offs this season. These games include:

    • December 13 v. Timberwolves- 1:30 p.m.
    • December 20 v. Bucks- 3:00 p.m.
    • February 21 v. Spurs- 3:00 p.m.
    • April 3 v. Jazz- 3:00 p.m.
