The Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns are set to meet at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee for a Western Conference vs Eastern Conference showdown on Sunday. This was the 2021 NBA finals, and although it is going to be different because Devin Booker and Chris Paul are not going to be able to play, it should still be a highly competitive match-up. Phoenix is 1-0 against Milwaukee this year as they come in with the best record in the NBA at 51-12. Milwaukee comes in with the three seed in the Eastern Conference at 39-25.

Short-Handed Suns Looking To Stay Hot
The Phoenix Suns are going to be without Chris Paul for the next seven weeks due to a thumb injury, and they’re also going to miss Devin Booker in this one due to him being in the health and safety protocols.
In the Suns’ last game against the New York Knicks on Friday night, they were able to step up without both of those guys as Cameron Johnson finished the game with nine 3-pointers including a buzzer-beater. He led the way with 38 points, while Mikal Bridges was able to add 20 points and six rebounds with four assists.
Phoenix has been one of the best teams in the NBA all season as they currently have the number one net rating in the NBA, the number three offensive ratings, and the number three ranked defensive rating.
Milwaukee Looking For 4 In A Row
The Milwaukee Bucks are going to be coming into this one on a three-game winning streak. Milwaukee has had struggles for parts throughout the year and many of that can be contributed to not being healthy. The defending champions have been playing much better as of late as they are currently on a three-game winning streak including impressive wins over the Charlotte Hornets, Miami Heat, and the Chicago Bulls.
In Milwaukee’s latest game against the Chicago Bulls, Giannis Antetokounmpo was able to score 34 points, while Khris Middleton added 22, and Jrue Holiday added 26.
Milwaukee currently has the ninth highest net rating in the NBA this season, the sixth rated offensive rating, and the 12th ranked defensive reading.

Free NBA Picks — Bucks vs Suns
For this game, I’m going to go with the Milwaukee Bucks to win by 10 plus. I think Milwaukee is going to easily win this game and with how well they are playing, I expect them to continue this hot streak they currently have.
Milwaukee realized last week that if they do not start playing better, they’re going to find themselves in a tough position and have to turn it on immediately in the playoffs. Milwaukee realized that they needed to play better basketball recently, and they did exactly that.
I am also going to take Giannis Antetokounmpo to score 25 plus points in this game to give us some better odds because I fully expect him to do what he did to Phoenix in the NBA Finals a year ago.
