Bucks Hoping To Close Suns Out In Game 6
The Milwaukee Bucks will host the Phoenix Suns at Fiserv Forum for Game 6 of the 2020-21 NBA Finals. The Bucks are currently leading the series by a 3-2 score. The Bucks have enjoyed a massive comeback after dropping the first two games of the series, and now they're just 48 minutes away from winning the title after a huge road victory in Game 5. During that game, Antetokounmpo paced the Bucks with 32 points, adding nine rebounds and six assists. Khris Middleton followed with 29 points, seven boards and five assists. Holiday generated a 27-point, 13-assist double-double that also included four rebounds, three steals and one block. Pat Connaughton registered 14 points and six rebounds. The Bucks have enjoyed strong play from their key players but the bench has stepped it up as well, and they seem to have made the necessary adjustments to limit the Suns on both ends of the court. Milwaukee is listing Thanasis Antetokounmpo (COVID-19) and Sam Merrill (ankle) as game-time decisions, while Donte DiVincenzo (foot) has been ruled out for the remainder of the series. The Suns, on the other hand, could have won Game 5 had they not committed a few key mistakes in the final minutes of the game, and now they have their backs against the wall knowing the next two games will be win-or-go-home contests for them. Devin Booker led the Suns with 40 points, supplementing them with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block, during the Game 5 defeat. Chris Paul managed a 21-point, 11-assist double-double that also included two rebounds and one block. Deandre Ayton generated a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double that also included one assist, two blocks and one steal. Mikal Bridges delivered 13 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block. Jae Crowder finished with 10 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals. The Suns have also lost three games in a row after squandering a 2-0 series lead following the first two games of the series. Phoenix is listing Dario Saric (knee) as out following his ACL injury in the beginning of the current series.
