The Phoenix Suns are guaranteeing fans will have a good time at the game against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Suns say anyone who buys a ticket and attends Thursday night's game will have their money returned if they are not completely satisfied with their experience, regardless of whether the team wins or loses.

The Suns say the offer is the first of its kind in the NBA.

Attendance has lagged at Suns games as the team fell from prominence in the West. Phoenix did not sell out a home game last season.

Team President Jason Rowley says the ticket rebate will go to fans who leave the arena unsatisfied after experiencing what he termed the excitement of Suns basketball.
