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.
Sometimes it's easy to forget just how impressively athletic this Suns team is. Then, they do something like this.
After practice in San Antonio on Thursday the team decided to work on their open court dunking skills. The results, captured by rookie Alex Len on his Instagram account, were quite impressive.

Being in a position to control your own destiny is something we all strive for. It’s why we clock in and clock out of our jobs on a daily basis and try to do our best every hour of every day. (Although, if you believe internet commenters, that may not always be the case with this column.)
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.
