Bucks v Suns: Six things to know before Game 6
The Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns will face off in game 6 NBA championship game tomorrow - here is what you need to know.
The Phoenix Suns had a strong start to the series, racing out to a 2-0 lead, but the Milwaukee Bucks came back even stronger, and now lead the series 3-2.
Suns, fighting for another chance
Tuesday's game could seal the deal for the Bucks if they can manage to keep up the offensive aggression they've shown the last 3 games. The Suns, however, will be fighting for a comeback to force a game 7 and give them another chance at winning the championship. Here are six things to look out for in game 6 with two strong teams fighting for the championship.
The Greek freak and his posse, leaving the Suns defense to struggle
With Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo perfecting their screen-and-roll action and Jrue Holiday’s consistent assists setting up goals, the Suns have had a rough time defensively. They will need to rethink their strategies and be prepared for an aggressive offense in game 6.
Will Chris Paul show up or crumble under pressure?
Devin Booker and Chris Paul were nailing 3-pointers in the first two games of the series, and were hugely responsible for the Suns' wins. In the next 3 games of the series, however, Booker had to do a lot of work alone, as Paul has been racking up the turnovers, leading in large part to the Suns’ losses. 17 turnovers for Phoenix led to 24 points for Milwaukee, whereas Milwaukee’s five turnovers only led to five points for Phoenix. In game 6, Paul and Booker need to work together with the team to secure a win.
