The Suns shot 43 percent from the field and made eight of 23 3-point attempts.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns. The NBA pick for this game is the Phoenix Suns. Be sure to monitor the injury report closely as the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns face off on the second night of a back-to-back. Although the Bucks managed to secure a win in Giannis Antetokounmpo’s absence a few weeks ago, his current status could prove pivotal. With a wealth of talent on their roster, Milwaukee poses a serious threat and could be a savvy pick to win and cover. Jrue Holiday is expected to shadow Devin Booker, while Brook Lopez aims to stymie Deandre Ayton’s interior presence. However, the Suns are forecasted to emerge victorious in a hard-fought battle, with a projected final score of 118-116.
