MILWAUKEE (TICKER) —The Phoenix Suns try to extend their winning streak over the Milwaukee Bucks to seven games on Wednesday as they try to salvage the finale of a four-game road trip at the Bradley Center.

The Suns have won the last six meetings with the Bucks, including an 86-81 victory at home on November 25. Milwaukee has not defeated Phoenix since winning here on November 12, 1999.

The Suns have won their last two visits to the Bradley Center and have won 21 of the last 23 overall games in the series.

The Suns have lost a season-high four straight games and are trying to avoid their first five-game slide since dropping six straight from March 10-21, 2002.

Milwaukee has just one win in its last six games and was handed a 117-114 loss by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.

Gary Payton had 21 points and nine assists in his Bradley Center debut and Michael Redd added 19 points for the Bucks, who are averaging just 90.5 points during their losing streak.
