With the series even, can the Suns regain momentum at home?

NBA: Finals-Phoenix Suns at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.

With two small market teams in the finals, this was supposed to be a down year for the NBA, but instead, it has turned into one of the most exciting and competitive finals in years. Two new superstars have emerged, well that’s not quite true, Giannis Antetounmkpo and Devin Booker were already superstars, but their performances in this series has elevated them to all-time status. The home team has won every game so far, and if Phoenix continues the trend, Milwaukee will return to Milwaukee on the brink of elimination on Tuesday. But if they can maintain their momentum of the last two games, they could win a title at home then. This is the most consequential game of the season, until the next one, and it’s going to be fun to watch. Chris Paul is going to need to find his mojo if the Suns are to win tonight, and if Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday can play well on the road, the Bucks could turn the series in their favor. Let’s all watch and find out.

One final word:

Go Spurs GOOOOOO!! Yeah, they aren’t playing tonight, but you can still back the Silver and Black tonight. Go Forbes. Go Monte. Go Bud!
