The Bucks are in the box seat to win their second ever NBA title and first since 1971, when Oscar Robertson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar both graced the court.
Milwaukee’s star trio of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday all delivered in a huge Game 5, claiming the first away win of the series and tilting the 2021 NBA title odds heavily in their favour.
Giannis was at his stat-stuffing best, dropping a team-high 32 points while contributing 9 boards and 6 assists.
Though for me, it was Holiday who was best on court, completely throwing Chris Paul off his game, while contributing 27 points, 13 assists and 3 steals of his own!
The Suns’ role players have already shown they can’t deliver on the road this series, with Devin Booker the only man to post 20+ points in Milwaukee.
Despite Booker putting up back-to-back 40-point games, Phoenix just don’t have the pieces to match the Bucks on the defensive end.
