Milwaukee won't give up their game in the series
Although the Suns were considered the favorites to win the Finals before the series began, and they continue to be so thanks to a lead 2-1, Milwaukee remains a very tough opponent.

The Bucks won the first game on their at home with ease - 120-100. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 41 points, Jrue Holiday scored 21, and Chris Middleton 18 points.
Phoenix is in control of the game

Moreover, even if they lose in the upcoming game their standings will be unaffected. Phoenix looks extremely convincing playing at home in this playoff series, Game 5 and Game 7, if necessary - will be played at the Suns' home arena. Chris Paul is closer than ever to the long-awaited championship victory with only 2 games left to win.
