Last night the Phoenix Suns played the Dallas Mavericks at home in Phoenix, Arizona. The game was the latter end of a double-header broadcast on TNT with the Heat vs. the Knicks coming before it. The fascinating part of this seemingly semi-important game was that the Suns organization declared this game a “money-back” game in which fans, if they didn’t feel satisfied by the Suns’ performance, could ask for their money back. For some that money might not be much, but those sitting in premium seating, might be in for over $200 rebate. The Suns came close, but lost to the Mavs 97-94 after missing a potential game-tying three pointer with time expiring. Despite the loss, fans seemed to be having fun throughout the game, as the battle was hard-fought and close throughout. While the Suns don’t have plans to have a similar “money-back” game again, it could happen again, and if so, Suns players will look to put up a W for their fans.
