The Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns meet Sunday in NBA action at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
The Milwaukee Bucks look for a win after losing two of their last three games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 118.8 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 106.8 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 29.6 points and 13.7 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 20.7 points and 6.3 rebounds. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 35.6 percent from beyond the arc and 74.3 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 52 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won four of their last six road games.
The Phoenix Suns need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 112.2 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 113.5 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 25.9 points and 6.5 assists while Deandre Ayton is averaging 19 points and 12 rebounds. Kelly Oubre Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Ricky Rubio is dishing 8.8 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 82.3 percent from the free throw line.

The Bucks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks are likely going to be without Antetokounmpo for this contest, but they've proven they can get the job done without him in the past and don't have the best record in the league for nothing. The Phoenix Suns are a team I've faded all season long and their 12-21 against the spread record at home doesn't change that. I want litlte to do with the Suns. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Bucks on the road.
