Suns head to Milwaukee to face terrible 8-36 Bucks

The Suns better not lose this game. Phoenix look to continue their road-trip as they head to Milwaukee to face the terrible 8-36 Bucks.

The biggest and most important key to this game is… put forth the effort. While the Suns usually do that on a day-to-day basis, it would be easy to look at a team that is 28 games under .500 and take the victory for granted. A team could easily go through the motions, phone their performance in and the Suns could end up losing the game.

The Bucks are still an NBA team and ANY TEAM can win ANY GAME on ANY NIGHT.

So the Suns have to be wary.

Key Matchup:

Brandon Knight versus Goran Dragic. Brandon Knight is arguably the Bucks’ best player as he is averaging 15.8 points per game, unfortunately for them… the best on the team. The Dragon should be able to keep Knight in check while continuing to play at an All-Star level himself.

What the Suns offense should focus on:

Play a solid game, don’t turn the ball over and you’ll probably win. They just need to move the ball, play together, take good shots, get out in transition and they’ll come out with the victory.

What the Suns defense needs to watch out for:

Just don’t give up easy baskets. They are last in the NBA in points per game averaging 91.1. Watch out for John Henson, can’t let him go off. Also, have to not let Milwaukee get on the offensive boards.

Prediction:

Suns will win the game by a score of 109-93.
