How the Bucks tied the NBA Finals
The Milwaukee Bucks stole a huge win in Game 4 to make sure they stay alive in the NBA Finals. The Bucks stole a huge win over the Phoenix Suns, 109-103 to tie the series at two. The team is keen to grab one win on the road and get a huge finish in Game 6.
For the first time in this year’s NBA Finals, both teams were hot and gave the fans a classic game. It was a tight one from start to finish, and no side was able to grab a huge lead for the whole game. Fans were at the edge of their seats, and both teams were tired.
Khris Middleton led the way for the Bucks as he scored 40 big points to go with six boards and four dimes. Team captain and lead star Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 points, 14 boards, and eight dimes to help out in the huge win by the Bucks to tie the series in a tight home game.
Devin Booker was hot for the Suns after a tough night in Game 3. The star had 42 points and played through five fouls and was nearly sent out thanks to a missed call late in the fourth. No other Suns player scored more than 20 points
Unlike the first three games, this one was very close from start to finish. The Suns closed out the first with a 23-20 lead in the game. It was a hot start for both teams as there wasn’t much of a big lead to chase. It was tied at 52 by halftime, and a trip to the locker rooms proved to be what both teams needed to get back into the game.
The Suns came alive in the third thanks to Booker, who scored 18 of his 42 points and torched the Bucks by going 7-7 from the field. He got into foul trouble but was able to play it smart and lead the way for the team.
It was the Bucks who then stole the show in the fourth. While it was a back and forth game, Giannis led the way with some big plays in the paint and Khris nailed tough shots as well. Phoenix clapped back and went on to tie it at 99 before the Bucks scored and led 101-99 with a minute to play.
Booker went on to call for a play with Deandre Ayton and passed up the ball, but Giannis came up with a huge block to stop the play. The Bucks scored with Khris and had some big shots to close out the win at 109-103.
What’s next for both teams
The Suns need to bounce back from this tough loss and make sure they play well at home in front of their fans. The Bucks have dropped some big games on the road, so the odds should be on their side.
The Bucks will need to give it all they got to make sure they are on the high side when they go home for Game 6. This just means that Game 5 will be a key game for them to win as it will determine which team gets the upper hand at this point.
With the Finals being more intense than ever, fans are keen to watch the games and make sure they don’t miss a bit of it. Both teams need two more games to win, and Game 5 will be the big stage for them to win.
