The Suns dominated Game 1, can the Bucks answer

NBA: Finals-Milwaukee Bucks at Phoenix Suns Joe Camporeale-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.

Bryn Forbes got some notice in Tuesday night’s game, but not in a good way. Even Mark Jackson noticed that the Suns were running their offense at Bryn, as teams did often did when he was a Spur. But he was hardly the difference in the game, as the Suns look sharp and rested, and Chris Paul took control of the game in the second half for a comfortable Phoenix win. Giannis Antetokounmpo looked great for a guy who looked like he was going to be gone for the season a week ago, but he is going to have to be a dominant force for the Bucks to have a shot against the talent-laden Suns squad. Khris Middleton was solid in game 1, but none of the other Bucks had a standout offensive game, and nobody could contain Paul, Devin Booker and the rest of the young Suns. If the Bucks don’t show more of a fight tonight, it might be time to bring some brooms to Milwaukee on Game 4 next Wednesday night.

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!
