In a season full of winning, the Milwaukee Bucks suffered its first back-to-back loss this season, losing to the Phoenix Suns 140-131.
The Suns jumped out to a 47-28 lead in the first quarter, thanks in part to Devin Booker scoring 20 of his team-high 36 points in the frame. The Bucks would go onto outscore the host Suns in the final three quarters, but it was not enough to close the gap to steal the victory. Ricky Rubio had the first Suns triple-double in 15 years, collecting 25 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists. Without Giannis Antetokounmpo in the lineup, Khris Middleton led the way for the Bucks with 39 points.
The Bucks will be without Antetokounmpo again Monday night when they travel to Denver to play the Nuggets.
