The Milwaukee Bucks (13-4) are minutes from tipping off against the Phoenix Suns (3-14) at the Fiserv Forum.
Coaches always insist there are no easy games, but the records would indicate this is a should-win game for the Bucks, tied with the Toronto Raptors for fewest losses in the NBA.
Phoenix’s biggest threat is high-scoring guard Devin Booker. The Suns also boast the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, Deandre Ayton. The rookie center is averaging 16.2 points and 10.8 rebounds per game.
Joe Prunty, who finished last season as the Bucks’ interim head coach, is an assistant for the Suns.
The Bucks have not lost to a team with a sub-.500 record.
