A much-anticipated inter-conference showdown between the Milwaukee Bucks (35-21) and Phoenix Suns (40-16) will kick-start the NBA week on Monday.
Both are coming off decisively lopsided losses. The Suns couldn’t get anything going offensively in a 111-85 loss at home to the San Antonio Spurs, while the Bucks got rolled at the Fiserv Forum in a 128-115 defeat at the hands of the visiting Memphis Grizzlies.
Milwaukee hasn’t had the season they had hoped for and no longer appear to be the top dog in the Eastern Conference. They sit in the 3rd spot meanwhile Phoenix sits in 2nd place in not only the Western Conference but the whole league.
Milwaukee has suffered some defensive woes lately, allowing Memphis to hang 128 points on their home court Saturday. The Grizzlies shooting splits were 54.8/37.5/91.7 in the victory.
The Bucks couldn’t guard the backcourt well at all, allowing Grayson Allen to score a season high 26 points. If they want to win this matchup they’ll need to play much better defensively or else Booker and Paul will eat them up all game long.
These next three games are vital for Milwaukee as they are all at home and against the top competition in the league. After playing Phoenix the Bucks will welcome the Eastern Conference best 76ers to town for back to back games. If Milwaukee could win all 3 they could leap Philadelphia for the top spot as they are only 4 games back at this point.
We’re about to learn a lot about the Suns over the course of their next seven games. All of the opponents coming up, including the Bucks, are playoff contenders with at least five of the games being on the road. The Suns are still clinging to second place in the Western Conference standings and are now only 1.5 games back.
Their 4 game winning streak was snapped Saturday in an embarrassing 111-85 beatdown at home courtesy of San Antonio. Phoenix never had a quarter go in their favor as they weren’t able to get on track scoring the ball; going just 40/22.2/43.8 as a team for their shooting splits.
Phoenix is led by young franchise face Devon Booker, who averages a team high 25.5 points per game. Veteran point guard Chris Paul has changed this whole teams trajectory thanks to his leadership and team best averages of 8.7 assists and 1.5 steals along with 2nd in scoring with 15.6 points. Former #1 pick Deandre Ayton has had a quietly good season, averaging 15.1 points and team bests with 10.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
These teams met back in February and Phoenix was able to win the back and forth affair 125-124 despite Giannis scoring a season high 47 points. Both teams are at the top of the league but were handed embarrassing losses at home this weekend.
Phoenix is the hottest teams in the league, winning 14 of their last 16 games but have a grueling schedule coming up. Milwaukee is in a great spot to potentially leap into the 1st spot in the Eastern Conference with their upcoming 3 game home stand.
I’m taking the Bucks to bounce back here and get revenge on the Suns in this one.
