After a decisive 118-105 win in Game 1, the Phoenix Suns are 3 wins away from clinching their first NBA Finals victory in franchise history. Tonight they will have a chance to keep their momentum as they host Game 2 in Phoenix Suns Arena against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Giannis Antetokounmpo surprised everyone by being able to contribute during Monday night’s loss. The former 2-time NBA MVP did look a tad bit slower than usual; however, he had 20 points and 17 rebounds while playing 35 minutes after returning from a hyperextended left knee he suffered in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Fans of the Bucks will be happy to know that Antetokounmpo is not on the injury report for tonight’s game, which gives the Bucks a chance at leaving The Valley with a win.
The Suns were able to pull away in the 3rd quarter of Game 1, as their 16-point lead was too much for the Bucks to come back from. Chris Paul led all scorers with 32 points combined with 9 assists and 4 rebounds in an impressive performance during his NBA Finals debut. The Suns’ young core of Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton contributed greatly. Booker’s 27 points in 42 minutes paired with Ayton’s double-double (22 points and 19 rebounds) was a huge factor in the Suns’ 13-point victory. With Game 2 on the horizon, the Suns will have all hands on deck as they will try to break out the brooms with 3 more straight wins.

Expect Game 2 to go differently with the Bucks pulling out all the stops with a win in Phoenix. To win the series, the Bucks will have to win at least 1 game in Phoenix and tonight will be the night. Giannis Antetokounmpo said he “felt good” after competing in Game 1. If his body can hold up and the Bucks continue to get high-level play from his teammates then winning in Phoenix won’t be a shocker. The biggest hurdle for the Bucks will be if Coach Bud can make the proper adjustments when necessary and not get out coached by Suns head coach Monty Williams. If things go smoothly then the sun will set on Phoenix as they will Fear the Deer when the Bucks leave Arizona tying the series 1-1.
