For the first time this season, Jae Crowder will be back playing at footprint arena. However, it will be as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks as they face the Phoenix Suns tonight.
In 10 games with the Bucks this season, Crowder has averaged 5.5 PPG, 4.1 RPG, and 1.4 APG in 18 minutes of play. He’s shooting 45% from the floor and 35% from three.
Against the Suns earlier this year, Crowder scored 7 points while hitting 2 threes in 25 minutes of play. It was a game that Crowder wanted badly as a new member of the Bucks after everything that transpired with Crowder and the Suns.
"Please get this win for me. I want this one real, real bad."

During his time in Phoenix, Crowder averaged 9.7 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 2.0 APG on 40% shooting from the floor to go along with 36% from the three-point range. He will always be remembered as a terrific teammate who played tough defense and helped contribute to turning the Phoenix Suns franchise around.
Tip-off begins at 7 PM AZ time and it’ll most likely be a very physical back-and-forth game between two title contenders to end the regular season.
