Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks: Prediction and Betting Tips
Phoenix Suns aiming to make a winning start to the finals series
In one of the strangest postseason in the NBA marred with injuries to leading players, the Phoenix Suns will have a second shot after 1993 to lift the NBA title for the first time in their history. The Suns eliminated the Lakers, Nuggets, and the Clippers to reach the finals.
- Chris Paul Legacy
A lot is at stake on a personal level as well. Chris Paul, who is considered as one of the best point guards ever to play in the NBA, will prove that if he lifts the title with the Suns. Paul is averaging 18 points and 8.7 assists per game in the playoffs and with his experience in the NBA is one of the key members of the Suns’ team in their quest to win the first NBA championship.
- Devin Booker to step up
The 24-year-old Devin Booker is leading his team in scoring in the playoffs with 27 points per game. It will be interesting to see whether Booker will stand up to the expectations put upon him by the Suns’ fans. He is the most important player for the Suns offensively.
Suns Key Stats
- Phoenix are averaging 115 points per game in the playoffs
- The average field goal percentage by Phoenix is 49% in the playoffs
- 12 is the number of turnovers by Phoenix per game in the playoffs
Being the underdogs, the Milwaukee Bucks will hope to have a fully fit squad
The Milwaukee Bucks reached the NBA finals after beating Miami Heat, New Jersey Nets, and Atlanta Hawks. Coach Mike Budenholzes’s team had a lot of ups and downs and had to deal with Giannis Antetokounmpo’s injury in the last three games but still emerged victorious against a stubborn Hawks side and won the Eastern Conference championship.
- Giannis’s health a major concern
In game four of the series against the Hawks, Giannis got injured and left the game with hyperextended knee muscles. If he is fit to play, the Greek tower will be able to prove that he is capable of winning his team an NBA title and be acknowledged along with the greats of the game who were the reason for leading their team to victory.
- All Bucks players must step up
A big credit must be addressed to the other players of the Bucks. Khris Middleton has delivered when his team needed him to. With the absence of Giannis in the last two games, Brook Lopez took it upon his shoulders to lead his team in scoring in game five while Middleton was the best scorer in game six.
Bucks Key Stats
- The Bucks are averaging 109.8 points per game in the playoffs
- The average field goal percentage of the Bucks is 46% in the playoffs
- 31.1% is the three-point average of the Bucks
Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction
No expert or analyst would have predicted for the Bucks and the Suns to reach the NBA finals this season. With teams like the Nets, Lakers, Utah, and even the Clippers, all the bookmakers were favoring those teams to clinch the title.
The major concern for the Bucks is Giannis Antetokoumnpo’s health and whether he will be fit to play game one. Despite winning their last two games against the Hawks without him, coach Budenholzer knows how essential the Greek’s presence is in the finals.
The Suns are relying on Devin Booker and Chris Paul to lead them to victory, Paul missed two matches in the playoffs due to injury but is back at full form, while Booker suffered a broken nose against the Clippers but kept on playing.
We think the Suns having home-court advantage will be fired up and the crowd will lead them to victory. The Suns are the favorites to win the series with an odds of 1.56 at Vbet.
