The surging Milwaukee Bucks are already out West, in the middle of a road trip that takes a pit stop in Phoenix Wednesday.
This should be a good one between two top-10 teams in the league.
The Bucks have won five in a row by more than an average of 20 points per game. They are again the top team in the NBA by net rating.
Milwaukee’s last three victories have come on the road and the most recent was in Denver on Monday night.
Denver, which had a healthy Jamal Murray, shot .417 from three-point land and turned it over just nine times. The Bucks still won by 13 points.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 30. Khris Middleton had 29 with 12 assists, which set a new career-high.
The rest of the starting five was in double-digits too, including Bryn Forbes, in place of Jrue Holiday.
Holiday missed the game due to health and safety protocol, a new development that made the victory all the more impressive but created new questions about the immediate future.
Holiday should miss this game too unless he simply turned back an inconclusive test. It’s possible he tested positive, however.
Forbes was great in his place with 15 points, one turnover and five rebounds. He’s been an underrated pick-up and had, prior to Monday, proved a valuable second-unit scorer for Milwaukee.
He’s shooting 48 percent from three on the season on four attempts per game.
Milwaukee will certainly miss Holiday in this matchup with Chris Paul and the Suns, however.
Forbes isn’t nearly the defender Holiday is. The same can be said about Milwaukee’s other guard, Donte DiVincenzo. DJ Augustine, the backup point guard on Monday, may be the preferred option.
But Augustine, who is in his 13th NBA season, does not have the offensive skills set of either Forbes or DiVincenzo.
Still, he may give Milwaukee its best option against Paul, who is in his 16th year. The Suns’ point guard isn’t shooting quite as well as he did last season in OKC but he’s not far off. He’s assisting more, though and shooting a league-high 97 percent from the free throw line.
That is, if he goes. Paul missed Phoenix’s last win on Monday with a hamstring. The Suns were on a back-to-back and the injury is not considered serious. I suspect he’ll be a go for this game.
Jae Crowder has missed three games in a row with a foot injury and his status feels more up in the air on Wednesday.
The Suns have picked up Frank Kaminsky in the meantime and continue to get strong play from both Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson.
Phoenix has won three in a row at home and will stay there the next four there, too.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction: Bucks win, Suns cover.
Phoenix is tough. This won’t be another double-digit win for Milwaukee, especially not without Holiday.
The Bucks will keep their winning streak on but it won’t be by enough to cover the number.
