After cruising their way to the NBA Finals, the Phoenix Suns were everybody’s favorite to take home the title.
After their first two games, however, the Suns have fallen short in some major ways, leading to three consecutive losses against a hungry Bucks squad.
It’s not a good night for the Suns, who have been getting absolutely flamed on Twitter.
With a combined 61 points by Booker and Paul, the Suns got about all you could ask for from their two superstars.
But on the other side, they once again had no answer for Giannis, who dropped 32 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists on 60% shooting.
Considering how dominant Phoenix looked coming in, and the way they took that 2-0 lead early on, it’s pretty surprising to see them on the brink of elimination.
But here they are, and it remains to be seen if they can force a Game 7.
On the other side, the Bucks have been criticized in the past for their failure to make adjustments. But they deserve some major credit for what they’ve been able to do in these playoffs.
Game 6 is set for Tuesday, at 9 pm Eastern. Everything will be on the line.
