The Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns collide tonight at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
The Bucks have lost five of their last six and will be looking to avoid a fourth straight loss after Friday's 121-112 defeat at Golden State. Michael Carter-Williams led the scoring with 24 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo added 20 points and Khris Middleton had 16, but it still wasn't enough as the Bucks led by as many as 11 points in the fourth quarter but just couldn't hold off the Warriors. With the loss, Milwaukee falls to 10-18 on the season and 2-13 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Suns have lost three of their last five but will be feeling quietly confident after their 104-88 romp over the Pelicans on Friday. Eric Bledsoe led the scoring with a game-high 29 points and nine assists on 12 of 17 shooting, Alex Len added 19 points and four other players finished in double figures as the Suns shot 52 percent from the field in one of the team's best offensive performances of the season. With the win, Phoenix improves to 12-16 on the season and 8-6 at home.
In ATS trends, the Bucks are 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games, while the Suns are 5-11 ATS in their lsat 16 games overall and 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games.
Head to head, the Bucks are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the road team is 4-1 ATS in the last five.
These two teams have yet to meet this season but I'm giving the edge to the Suns who have won three of their last four games at home against a Bucks team who have lost five of their last six overall.
