The latest lopsided loss for the Milwaukee Bucks resulted in a bitter locker room argument between teammates Larry Sanders and Gary Neal.

The two were arguing after reporters were allowed in the locker room following the Bucks' 116-100 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night at the US Airways Center.

Reporters were asked by players to leave but the argument continued and Neal left shouting, "I earned my money. Why don't you try it?"

Sanders earlier could be heard questioning Neal's attitude.

But Sanders said he would not comment about the argument and said simply, "I had a bad game."

It was the latest meltdown for a Bucks team that dropped to a 7-26 record as it lost for the second time in three games on its western swing.

And there were plenty of problems during the game as the Bucks committed a season-high 26 turnovers leading to 38 points by the Suns (20-12).

Bucks teammates did their best to downplay what was an ugly scene in the visitors' locker room.
