Tuesday, Jan. 6: Phoenix Suns at Milwaukee Bucks

We all know about the last time these two teams met last month.  You know, when Jabari Parker tore his ACL and then Khris Middleton hit this shot to win Milwaukee the game?

Well, despite the multiple highlights Milwaukee created Tuesday night, Phoenix got their revenge and defeated the Bucks 102-96

The Bucks shot an abysmal 3-of-20 from behind the arc, committed 17 turnovers, and were outscored 31-24 in the fourth to solidify the win for Phoenix.

But hey, Milwaukee looked good in a losing effort!  Don’t believe me?  Watch this Giannis Antetokounmpo slam.  Or this Brandon Knight slam.  They sure were flying high for a portion of that third quarter.

Brandon Knight had a solid night for Milwaukee too.  He scored 26 points, went 10-of-20 from the field, had three steals and only committed one turnover.  His high flying side kick Giannis recorded his second straight double-double as well, scoring 16 points and added 12 rebounds.

Tuesday night’s loss was Milwaukee’s fourth straight loss at home, with their last home win coming Dec. 13 against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The loss also dropped Milwaukee to 18-18 on the season.  Their next game was Wednesday night against the lowly Philadelphia 76ers.
