Phoenix Suns 2014-2015 Schedule: 5 Games That Stand Out

Last season the Phoenix Suns' new head coach Jeff Hornacek inherited a squad that was supposed to be a lottery team. The Suns wound up going 48-34 missing the playoffs by just one game. Can this Suns team do what last season's couldn’t and make the playoffs in the Wild Wild West? Here are five games that stand out on their 2014-15 schedule.

The Suns head to Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Jazz. Jazz fans love Suns coach Jeff Hornacek, and it's always fun to see the normal hostile Jazz crowd actually be nice to anyone from the opposing team. The guard matchups of Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe against Alec Burkes and Trey Burke should be fun to watch, and who knows -- maybe highly touted Jazz rookie Dante Exum might make an appearance as well.

The “Splash Brothers” (Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry) roll into town to take on the Suns in an early season Pacific Division matchup. The Suns are anxious to prove that last season wasn’t a fluke, and a blowout victory at home against the Golden State Warriors will definitely be an eye-opener.

The Suns head to the Staples Center to face the Los Angeles Clippers in what should be a fun Saturday night contest. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Suns' Markieff Morris will be able to handle the vastly improved Blake Griffin.

The Suns host the Portland Trail Blazers in what should be an outstanding night of NBA action. LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard against the dynamic duo of Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic should prove to be an interesting contest that perhaps could have seeding implications as well.

The Los Angeles Clippers are in town for the final game of the season. This one could have seeding implications as well as the divisional banner on the line. It will be a fun night at U.S. Airways Center for sure!
