Milwaukee can get themselves back into the NBA Finals series with a Game 3 win.

  • Milwaukee Bucks have out-rebounded Phoenix Suns 93-86 through 2 games
  • Phoenix Suns are unlikely to match their franchise-record 3-point shooting in Game 3 (20 from 40)

  • Phoenix Suns lead the all-time series 77-73
  • The all-time playoff series is tied 2-2
  • Phoenix Suns lead the season series 4-0

Phoenix Suns Form & Team News


Phoenix have taken a commanding 2-0 lead in the playoffs and head to Milwaukee in great form.

The Suns have won three straight games, but more importantly they are an impressive 6-2 on the road in the playoffs.

Phoenix won Game 1 in each of their three playoff series en route to the NBA Finals, and that trend continued against Milwaukee.

Devin Booker matched his postseason average with 27 points, and Deandre Ayton was a force inside the paint with 22 points and 19 rebounds.

The star of the show was Chris Paul though. Milwaukee found him unplayable as he poured in 32 points and dished out 9 assists in a 118-105 win for Phoenix.

The Suns then doubled their series lead in Game 2 as they broke the franchise record for three-point shooting, converting 20 of their 40 attempts.

Booker led the charge with 31 points, while Mikal Bridges put up 27 points and Chris Paul contributed 23 points and 8 assists, and that resulted in a 118-108 win.

It has not all been good news for Phoenix though. Dario Saric (knee) is done for the season and Torrey Craig (knee) is now day-to-day.

Milwaukee Bucks Form & Team News


Milwaukee have their backs against the wall after losing the first two games of the NBA Finals.

They are returning home for Game 3 though and that is good news, because they are 7-1 at the Fiserv Forum in the playoffs.

They also have Giannis Antetokounmpo thanks to his ‘miracle’ recovery from a knee injury.

Giannis made a surprise return for Game 1 of the NBA Finals but his 20 points and 17 rebounds could not prevent the Bucks from losing.

Khris Middleton put up 29 points in a strong personal showing, but Milwaukee struggled to cope with Chris Paul defensively and that resulted in a 118-105 defeat.

Middleton was nowhere near as effective in Game 2 and Jrue Holliday was again kept quiet, so a 118-108 defeat was no surprise.

There was some promising signs though, as Giannis racked up 42 points and 12 rebounds in a superb individual performance.

He needs help though and the Bucks star will be demanding more from his supporting cast at the Fiserv Forum on Sunday night.

The supporting cast is almost fully healthy, with only Donte DiVincenzo (foot) sidelined.

Verdict

Phoenix have shone in the first two games and are a tempting bet to take Game 3 too.
