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, Middleton and 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 Jrue 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 Booker the only man to post 20+ points in Milwaukee.
Despite Devin putting up back-to-back 40-point games, Phoenix just don’t have the pieces to match the Bucks on the defensive end.
I’m backing Giannis to secure his first NBA ring and Finals MVP trophy with another dominate display at the expense of the overachieving Suns.
