Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns Date and Time: Wednesday, July 21,2021 9:00AM Venue: Phoenix Suns Arena, Phoenix, AZ Prediction: Phoenix Suns Bookmaker: 1xbet
The Suns, meanwhile, seek to recover from their two consecutive losses in Milwaukee and protect their home floor, where they have dominated the Bucks in the first two games of the series.
Suns superstar Devin Booker will look to translate his 42-point Game 4 performance into a victory, while veteran point guard Chris Paul eyes to bounce back from his horrific 10-point Game 4 outing.
Four games of home dominance had us all thinking of which team would strike first away from the comforts of their own court. The Milwaukee Bucks had the opportunity of a lifetime in Game 5. Win, and you go back to Milwaukee, in a court where they have lost only once during these playoffs. Lose, and you give the Phoenix Suns two opportunities to close it out.
It initially worked. It was the latest counter in a series where each team’s head coach has had to concoct responses. The Bucks forced Suns head coach Monty Williams to think of a counter to the Bucks’ fast-paced play, dominance of the offensive boards, and a way to neuter possessions involving Giannis Antetokounmpo as the screener in screen-and-roll actions.
It was a first-quarter haymaker that the Bucks ran headfirst into. Instead of staying down for the count, the Bucks got back up and threw counters of their own several counters, really that caught the Suns flush in the face. This match will be for the Phoenix Suns.
