Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns Game 2 Odds
Game 1 of the NBA Finals taught us a few things when the final whistle blew. The first thing is that Chris Paul may go down as one of the most underrated players in NBA history and he’s still every bit as good as he was in his prime when the Suns need him.
The second thing I came away from Game 1 saying was that Giannis Antetokounmpo may be hurt, but he’s not showing many signs of it on the floor. He was a force defensively and, while he didn’t put up a 30-plus point game, he was good offensively as well.
As is almost always the case, this series will come down to role players and which team is playing better basketball.
If Milwaukee is able to steal a game in Phoenix, they’ll leave and go back home feeling good about their effort on the road. But, if the Bucks can’t get a win away from home then the Suns will clearly have the upper hand as they get ready to play a pair away from Phoenix.

Milwaukee Bucks Preview
Giannis Antetokounmpo was very good in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, especially defensively. But, if the Bucks are going to win their first title since the 70s, he’s going to need to be great on both sides of the floor. 20 points just isn’t going to be enough for the former MVP if he plans to take down this talent-heavy Suns team.
Khris Middleton played an insane 45 minutes in Game 1. Those numbers make Tom Thibodeau blush. If he continues to play basically every minute of the series, he’ll have rubber legs by Game 4. In order to get the most out of this team they have to star all contributing. They need more from Jrue Holliday and P.J. Tucker if they aren’t going to get any help from their bench.
If they can get balanced scoring from their starters and a big game from Giannis Antetokounmpo, they’ll win Game 2.
Phoenix Suns Preview
Watching Chris Paul dominate an NBA Finals game felt like the culmination of his career. We’ve been waiting over a decade to see him fight for a title and he certainly did not disappoint when push came to shove. Paul finished with a game-high 32 points, including 16 in the 3rd quarter.
The Suns are a more talented team on paper. If Chris Paul isn’t beating you then it’s Devin Booker or DeAndre Ayton giving you fits. I do worry about the absence of Dario Saric following his Game 1 injury. He’s a valuable role player for this team. But, they have guys that can fill that role and hopefully do it well.
