Despite having to suffer through one of the worst seasons in franchise history, the Phoenix Suns did still have several memorable games through their 82-game schedule.
Perhaps the team had a lot of weaknesses, but there were occasionally some very exciting nights. Sometimes an individual player would take control of the game for a career game, and in other cases the team would grind out a tough win against a great opponent or bitter rival.
It is these games that remind you why it is so special to be a Phoenix Suns fan. The team won't be rewarding fans with any 60-win seasons in the next couple years, but you can count on the fact that they will continue to fight hard every single night, even when times are tough and morale is low.
And occasionally, the team's effort will show, and the Suns may shock you with a surprising win, or at the very least a close and enthralling matchup.
Here are just five games of the Suns' season where they persevered (or came close) and gave fans a memorable evening.
