Sides who weren’t anticipated to play a final, have made it this year. The pandemic, injuries and mysterious ways of time shaped this NBA season. Bucks finished the Atlanta Hawks without getting help from the MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo while Phoenix Suns used Kawhi Leonard’s injury to their will. Breaking the super team myth through his move to Phoenix Suns and now getting them into the finals, Chris Paul has already achieved a big feat in his 16-year long career. He faces a huge obstacle to attain the zenith in the sixth leg. On the other hand, the Greek Freak is scoring at a blazing pace and his defence is a nosy probe. BettingPremier’s take on the NBA finale follows hereafter.
Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks
In the sixth leg of the NBA finals, a finale which will crown a new champion whatever be the result, Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks clash. The battle unfolds at Fiserv Forum on Tuesday night. A rusty Giannis Antetokounmpo and teamwork along with the home-court advantage lead to two consecutive victories in the first two legs for the Suns. The Bucks gained control in the third leg 120-100, Jrue Holiday and Giannis Antetokounmpo surpassed the Phoenix players in all front. Continuing the same form into the fourth and fifth legs, Giannis excelled with his rebounds and assists. Playing the role of a hidden knight, Khris Middleton has been crucial to the team.
Once again for the Suns, Devin Booker’s 40 points were lost in vain. Chris Paul, DeAndre Ayton and Cameron Johnson were constrained effectively. Losing at home was never a pleasant experience but overpowered in clutch time of the finale spells too harsh on ears. In Milwaukee, Donte DiVincenzo hasn’t starred in the finals and he probably won’t hereafter. Merril and Giannis’ brother will miss the game. Daric Saric’s knee injury will prevent him from wearing the Suns’ outfit. Nothing is written in concrete this finals. Though, the rise of Middleton and Giannis’ presence combined with Chris Paul’s misfirings provide an edge to the Bucks.
