Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks: Storylines
The Phoenix Suns led by 46 minutes and looked poised to take a 3-1 lead in the series before Khris Middleton outscored them 10-4 in the final 2 minutes of the game. Chris Paul had one of the worst playoff performances of his career, including a crucial turnover that cost them the game.
The Milwaukee Bucks did a great job of not backing down and adjusting in-game. But perhaps the biggest factor - besides Middleton's great performance - was Devin Booker getting into foul trouble late in the game. Phoenix's offense got stagnant and the Bucks made them pay with great defense, including one of the greatest blocks in Finals history by Giannis Antetokounmpo.
