For the Suns, boasting three potential All-Stars on their roster, it comes as no surprise that Phoenix will enjoy a repetitive primetime presence, with a total of 37 games scheduled to be broadcast on national television.

In fact, the Suns’ first five games of the 2023-2024 season can be viewed on either TNT or NBA TV.

This marks an increase of three games compared to last season, and it also positions them as the third-most featured team across the entire league.

Following closely behind the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers, the Suns stand as the sole team located outside of California with over 35 games slated for nationally televised broadcasts.

Phoenix claims more ‘primetime’ games than the combined total of the Hornets, Pistons, Rockets, Pacers, Magic, Trail Blazers, Raptors, and Wizards.

After years of operating as a small-market team, the Suns have rapidly transformed into one of the most captivating and widely discussed franchises in the realm of sports.

The transformation since Mat Ishbia assumed leadership of the team less than a year ago has been truly remarkable.
