The Phoenix Suns beat the Milwaukee Bucks.

On February 10th, the Phoenix Suns were set to host the Milwhakee Bucks in a battle of two possible contending teams. The Suns came out of the locker-room fired up and ready to win, though the Bucks managed to match that energy with their grand entrance. In the first quarter of the game, both teams managed to tack 32 points on the scoreboard. The second quarter proved to be the Bucks strongest quarter because they managed to accumulate a 12 point lead going into halftime. Also their guards were being very consistent from the three-point line. However, the Suns regained control in the third quarter and managed to outscore the Milwaukee Bucks by nine points by the end of the quarter, leaving the score to be Phoenix Suns 98 and Milwaukee Bucks 101. But the Suns really turned up the intensity in the fourth quarter, with them outscoring the Bucks that quarter and taking a 125-124 lead with two seconds left in the game. On the Bucks’ final possession, Kris Middleton passed the ball to Giannis Antetokounmpo who shot a jumper from the top of the key and missed. He ended the game with 47 points and the Bucks still fell short to the Phoenix Suns. The win would give momentum to the Phoenix Suns who currently sit second in the very competitive Western Conference, only behind the very impressive Utah Jazz. A win like this would surely give Phoenix Suns the momentum they need to finish the season strong and reach their ultimate goal of a first franchise championship.
