What do all of these teams have in common?

They all reached the playoffs.

Phoenix stands out with its impressive streak of 121 consecutive home sellouts, marking the third-longest in franchise history. The record streak is 390 sellouts from 1990 to 1999.

Despite Footprint Center’s smaller capacity of 17,071, which ranked the Suns 25th in home attendance—only ahead of the Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards, Memphis Grizzlies, and Charlotte Hornets—the team attracted significant attention on the road. With stars like Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, and Bradley Beal, the Suns drew an average of 18,852 fans at away games, placing them seventh overall.

Overall, the NBA celebrated a record-breaking attendance for the second consecutive season, with the 2023-2024 season surpassing the previous year by 301,839 fans.
