HIGHLIGHTS: Suns vs Bucks, Game 2 – NBA Finals 2021
The Suns look to put on another dominant show as the Bucks aim to bounce back and equalize the best-of-seven finals series at 1-1

The Phoenix Suns proved that their early playoff success this season was no fluke as they took down the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the 2021 NBA Finals in convincing fashion.

(UPDATE: Suns’ long-range shooting sinks Bucks for 2-0 finals lead

Despite the return of Bucks’ two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Suns dominated Game 1 from start to finish, thanks to the heroics of superstar point guard Chris Paul.

The 36-year-old Paul, who made his first NBA Finals trip in his 16-year career, dropped 32 points and 9 assists, while sweet-shooting guard Devin Booker and big man Deandre Ayton combined for 49 points in the Suns’ 118-105 win.

On the other hand, the Bucks, who simply had no answers for Paul and the red-hot Suns, relied on high-scoring guard Khris Middleton and Antetokounmpo in the loss.

Middleton topscored for the Bucks with 29 points, while Antetokounmpo, who is coming off a hyperextended knee injury, tallied a huge double-double of 20 points and 17 rebounds.

With momentum clearly on Phoenix’s side heading into Game 2 on Thursday, July 8 (Friday, July 9, Manila time), will the Suns put on another dominant show and take a 2-0 lead at home, or will the Bucks bounce back and equalize the best-of-seven Finals series at 1-1?

Game time is 9 am.
