MILWAUKEE - No chance of a letdown for the Phoenix Suns.Markieff Morris scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Suns to a 102-96 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.A bright spot for the Bucks was the return of centre Larry Sanders, even if he was in street clothes and sitting on the bench. He missed his seventh consecutive game due, at first, to the flu, but since then for personal reasons.It feels great to be around the guys again, Sanders said. His last game was Dec. 23, and he said that rumours he might even quit basketball werent true.But, what is true, he said, is that Im in the process of working things out now to do as best for my psyche and my physical health going forward. Theres a lot of evaluating going on.Phoenix (21-16) was coming off its second-highest scoring total of the season in Sundays 125-109 win at home over Atlantic Division-leading Toronto.Facing the Bucks, who beat them 96-94 six weeks ago on Khris Middletons buzzer-beating three-pointer, the Suns still had plenty of energy and drive.Isaiah Thomas added 19 and Goran Dragic, 16, for the Suns, who have scored 100 or more points for the ninth straight game.It wasnt the prettiest game, Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. There were a lot of turnovers and a lot of missed shots, but we got it going a little bit in the second half, scoring 59 points. We played more like we were capable of playing.The Bucks turned the Suns 20 turnovers into 22 points while Phoenix cashed in on Milwaukees 17 miscues for 16. Phoenix shot 40 per cent in the first half, falling behind Milwaukee by 10, but then recovered and went 51 per cent from the floor in the second.Our guys made big plays at the end, Hornacek said.After three leads changes and a tie to start the fourth quarter, the Suns went ahead for good when Markieff Morris kept an offensive rebound alive and tipped it in and Marcus Morris converted a three-point play for an 81-76 lead early in the quarter.Phoenix capitalized on Milwaukees poor shooting to cling to a lead that never topped seven points down the stretch. The Bucks made nine of 27 shots in the fourth quarter, and their defence disappeared.You cant give them wide open 3s late in the game, said Bucks coach Jason Kidd.Thomas said stopping the Bucks was important.We got key stops and scored on the offensive end, Thomas said. We stayed aggressive and got in the bonus with about four or five minutes left in the game. Thats what got us the win.Brandon Knight scored 26 and Giannis Antetokounmpo added 16 for the Bucks, who lost their fourth straight at home.The Suns have won nine of the last 11 and opened the four-game road trip with their third consecutive victory. They also upped their record to 8-1 over Eastern Conference opponents.Khris Middletons 3 with 1:49 left pulled the Bucks to 94-92, but the Suns pulled away on a jumper by Goran Dragic, a 3-pointer by Markieff Morris and a free throw from Thomas.Antetokounmpo and Knight put some energy back in the Bucks offence when each dunked during a 12-4 surge that puts Milwaukee back in the lead 62-58 with 4:44 left in the third quarter.TIP-INSSuns: Phoenix had 15 points in the first quarter, just four better than their season-low of 11 for that period set Oct. 31 against San Antonio. . Thomas came off the bench to score 13 points in the first half, one better than all Bucks reserves. . PJ Tucker missed all four of his shots in the first half, but his first basket of the third gave Phoenix a 45-44 lead.Bucks: Khris Middleton picked up an inadvertent technical late in the first quarter. With play stopped under the Suns basket, he spiked the ball while walking away from referee Eric Dalen. When Middleton failed to catch it, Dalen called the foul.UP NEXTSuns: Visit Minnesota on Wednesday night.Bucks: Visit Philadelphia on Wednesday night. Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Outlet .
