NBA Finals: Bucks even the series as Middleton scores 40


The Milwaukee Bucks have evened the series against the Suns after going 2 games down.

Khris Middleton came guns blazing in the game after he failed to turn up in the previous games. Giannis had scored 40 points in the last two games and many believed it would be the same tonight.

However, to the annoyance of many fans, the Bucks decided to go another route settling for three point shots rather than going into the paint. The Suns took the early lead as the Bucks chased the game.

The first half ended in a 52-52 tie as Chris Paul continues to stack up turnovers. he never looked himself in the game.

Giannis was not having the same game he had in games 2 and 3 so it was left to Middleton.

With Bucks all-time great Kareem Abdul-Jabaar in the stands, the team did all it could to make sure they had the victory.

Devin Booker was explosive all night as he continued to sink difficult shots in the face of tight defense. Despite getting 4 fouls, the coach still had faith in him as he finished the game with 42 points after having an awful game 3 where he ended up with 10 points.

Chris Paul just never got going as he ended the game with 10 points and 7 rebounds.

Ayton got 17 rebounds, Crowder got 15 points while Cam Johnson also had 10 points.

The Suns will now head back to Phoenix for game 5 to grind out another win and not make the Bucks win their first title since 1974.

It is now an important game from here on out and that is why fans are excited about the NBA Finals.
