Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns Tips


The Milwaukee Bucks take on the Phoenix Suns at the Phoenix Suns Arena on Thursday. Milwaukee are having the far better season of the two; they are top of their Central Division, and second in the Eastern Conference. 

The Suns are fourth in the Western Conference, and third in their Pacific Division. Phoenix can still ensure a playoff spot, but would need to raise their current level and win more games during the second half of the season. 

Right now the Bucks are playing better basketball, they are on a five-game winning streak, and I’m picking Milwaukee to continue that winning run and defeat Phoenix in a tight game by less than ten points. 

  • Bucks PPG Average is 121.3, the highest in the NBA this season
  • Bucks have won five straight games by over 10 points 
  • Suns PPG Average is 109.8, one of the lowest in the NBA this season 
  • Suns are 7-4 at their Phoenix Suns Arena this season 

Head to Head 


The Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns have played each other 144 times historically, with the Suns just edging their head to head by 73 wins to 71. 

That closeness is reflected also in their most recent six encounters; both the Suns and Bucks have won three apiece, with Phoenix winning their most recent game in March 2020 by 140-131. 

Milwaukee Bucks Form


Right now Milwaukee are on fire, with five straight wins, and all of those victories have been decisive score lines; Portland by 134-106, Indiana by 130-110, Cleveland by 123-105, Cleveland by 124-99 and Denver by 125-112.  

Overall the Bucks have won 16 games and lost eight for a win percentage of .667. They are currently top of the Easter Division and in second place in the Eastern Conference. 

Their home record is an excellent 9 wins from 11 games, while on the road they have won seven and lost six. Their last ten games are a solid 7-3, which shows that they have tightened up defensively as their season has progressed. 

The players who had stood out for the Bucks this season are Giannis Antetokounmpo who has averaged 27.3 points and played 19 games. Not far behind him is Khris Middleton with 24 games under his belt and a 20.8 point average. 

Phoenix Suns Form 


The Phoenix Suns have won 13 games and lost nine for a .609 percentage. They are third in the highly competitive Pacific Division, behind the Los Angeles Lakers and the LA Clippers. 

The Suns are fourth in the Western Conference, which is topped by the Utah Jazz. The Suns have been steady both at home and on the road this season with 7-4 home record and a 7-5 away slate. They are 6-4 for their last ten games, which reveals a slight dip in form as the season has progressed. 

Devin Brooker has been the best player for Phoenix this season, with a 23.4 points average. Chris Paul has scored 16.4 points per game.

Verdict

The Milwaukee Bucks will defeat the Phoenix Suns on Thursday because they are the form team. The Bucks have won five-straight games, blitzing the opposition and winning every game by a margin of more than ten points.
 
The Suns have been in decent form themselves, and have won their last three games, so the Bucks won’t have things their own way. This will be a tighter game, with the Bucks emerging victorious by ten points or less.
