The surging Milwaukee Bucks took management of the NBA Finals with a 123-119 victory over the host Phoenix Suns on Saturday.
After dropping the primary two video games of the collection, the Bucks have roared again to life with three consecutive wins and now lead the best-of-seven NBA Finals 3-2.
Bucks ahead Giannis Antetokounmpo, whose brother and teammate Thanasis was dominated out of the sport because of the NBA’s well being and security protocols, had a team-high 32 factors.
Devin Booker scored a game-high 40 factors for a Suns group that led by 16 factors after the primary quarter earlier than the Bucks clawed their approach again and held on as PHoenix’s comeback bid fell quick.
Milwaukee is now one win away from clinching their first NBA championship in 50 years whereas Phoenix stays two wins away from their first title within the group’s 53-year existence.
The Bucks host Recreation Six on Tuesday. A decisive seventh sport, if obligatory, can be in Phoenix on Thursday.
