Suns, Warriors to meet in outdoor exhibition gamePosted: Updated:
INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns will play another exhibition game outdoors in the desert resort area of Indian Wells, Calif., on Oct. 10 against the Golden State Warriors.
The Suns faced the Denver Nuggets at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden last October and lost 77-72 before a sell-out crowd of 16,000.
The Suns also played in the previous NBA game outdoors, on Sept. 24, 1972. In that game, Connie Hawkins, Dick Van Arsdale and Neal Walk led Phoenix to a 116-103 pre-season win over Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson and the Milwaukee Bucks at a baseball stadium in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
