Phoenix Suns Form & Team News


Phoenix must win on the road to take the NBA Finals to Game 7.

The Suns took a commanding 2-0 lead with back-to-back wins on the home court to start the 2021 NBA Finals.

Devin Booker matched his postseason average with 27 points, and Deandre Ayton was a force inside the paint with 22 points and 19 rebounds in Game 1.

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.

However, Booker struggled badly with his accuracy as he scored just 10 points in Game 3. In fact, no Phoenix player hit the 20-point mark, resulting in a 120-100 blowout defeat.

Booker roared back into life in Game 4, but his 42 points and Ayton’s 17 rebounds proved to be in vain as the Suns fell to a 109-103 defeat.

Booker then put 40 points on the board in Game 5 but that, along with Paul’s 21 points and 11 assists, could not prevent a 123-119 home defeat that means the Suns must win in Milwaukee.

They head to Milwaukee in good shape though with only Dario Saric (knee) currently on the injury report.

Milwaukee Bucks Form & Team News


Milwaukee are just one win away from winning the NBA Finals and they get the chance to clinch at home.

The Bucks had their backs against the wall when they returned home after losing the first two games of the series.

Giannis Antetokounmpo made a surprise return from a knee injury for Game 1, and he put up 20 points and 17 rebounds.

Khris Middleton also 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 that one, and he produced similar numbers in Game 3.

‘The Greek Freak’ registered 41 points and 13 rebounds, while going 13/17 from the free throw line, and his outstanding performance inspired Milwaukee to a huge 120-100 win.

Phoenix went all out to stop Giannis and ‘held’ him to 26 points, but he once again produced some huge plays and those, along with Middleton’s 40 points, lifted the Bucks to a 109-103 win.

Giannis, Middleton and Jrue Holiday then led Milwaukee to a massive 123-119 road in in Game 5 that gives them the opportunity to seal the title at home.

Giannis and Middleton combined for 61 points and 13 rebounds in Phoenix, while Holiday made some huge plays in his double double (27 points & 13 assists).

Milwaukee will be hoping that Thanasis Antetokounmpo entering COVID-19 Protocols does not become the start of an outbreak. He will miss Game 6 alongside Donte DiVincenzo (foot).
