Bledsoe, Brogdon back for Bucks

After missing what became a 115-111 loss to the Utah Jazz, guards Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon will return to the lineup for the Milwaukee Bucks when they take on the Phoenix Suns tonight.

Center Pau Gasol, signed to a contract Sunday after reaching a buyout deal with the San Antonio Spurs, also is with the team and will dress. Bucks Coach Mike Budenholzer said he is not sure if he will play Gaosol.

Guard George Hill (groin), forward Sterling Brown (wrist) and rookie guard Donte DiVincenzo (heel) remain out with injuries.

The Bucks will try to keep their record perfect in games against teams that have beaten them in previous matchups. The Suns pulled off a shocker back on Nov. 23, beating the Bucks, 116-114, on Jamal Crawford’s pullup jumper with 0.9 seconds left.

Milwaukee also is 14-0 in games following a loss as it is the only team to not lose two straight games.

The game wraps up a five-game road trip, the last four of which were against Western Conference teams on the west coast. The Bucks return home Thursday against the Indiana Pacers.
