PHOENIX – The Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury will open the doors to a new full-service Carl’s Jr. at US Airways Center during a special ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, April 14 at 8:30 a.m. To celebrate the grand opening, Carl’s Jr. will award the first 100 people in line with a free Carl’s Jr. breakfast combo. Fans are encouraged to line up prior to the ribbon cutting celebration.

Here’s how the final week of the regular season will have looked before the playoff dust settles:

April 10: San Antonio at Dallas

April 11: Phoenix at San Antonio

April 12: Phoenix at Dallas

April 14: Memphis at Phoenix

April 16: Dallas at Memphis

There’s no denying the round robin feel between three teams who are – as Suns Head Coach Jeff Hornacek put it – “scratching and clawing” for two playoff spots. Phoenix and Dallas are essentially tied. Memphis is just a game behind them.

PHOENIX – The Phoenix Suns will celebrate the Mexican holiday, El Día del Niño (Children’s Day), prior to the team’s matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday, April 14 at US Airways Center. Family-friendly activities will begin on the plaza at 5:30 p.m., with tipoff scheduled for 7 p.m.

Suns fans will enjoy El Día del Niño festivities including a prize wheel for toy giveaways, face painting and balloon twisting. In addition, the first 1,000 children in attendance at the game that evening will receive a free Mexican popsicle.

Channing Frye could only shake his head at the question that prompted recent memories buried by over 2,000 minutes played and 150 three-pointers made.

Looking back, what was the hardest thing about playing basketball after a year-and-a-half off due to a potentially life-threatening heart ailment?

The loaded question deserved a loaded answer, even if it was far more efficient in response.

“Everything.”
