NBA Finals: The Phoenix Suns takes a two-game series lead over the Milwaukee Bucks


The Phoenix Suns grabbed a 2-0 essential series lead in the NBA Finals with a 118-108 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday at their home court Phoenix Suns Arena.

Devin Booker, who performed with a team-high 31 points on 12-of-25 shooting from the field was the key player in Game 2 for his side. He gave five rebounds and provided six assists while Mikal Bridges had 27 points and Chris Paul expanded for the Suns with 23.

“We pass up good shots to get great shots,” said Chris Paul to YouTube TV on the Suns’ incredible ball movement.

“It was probably the biggest play of the game,” Paul added.

Meanwhile on the other side, despite Giannis Antetokounmpo, who contributed to making 42 points with 12 rebounds which weren’t enough in front of strengthened 54 points by Booker alone with 31, the Milwaukee Bucks got dominated by the Suns behind a playoff franchise-record 20 3-pointers where all their starters finished in double figures.

With Antetokounmpo the two-time MVP, going on the bench, the Suns had a huge advantage over the Bucks with five straight and snatched forward the lead. Khris Middleton could only score 11 points for the Bucks.

The Suns ended 20-for-40 from three-point range in the game and the Bucks went 9-for-31.Β The Phoenix Suns are now two wins away from their NBA title which will be their first in Franchise history. Game 3 is set for July 12, Monday at 5:30 am at their home court in Milwaukee.
