LSo Finals are not disappointing. In the fourth game of the series, the Bucks made the field factor good to beat to some Suns who had it in hand (109-103).
The rage of the game was equality, although it was Monty Williams’ team that always seemed to be in the lead. The Arizona team, supported by a great Devin Booker (42 points), came close to victory that would have made it 3-1 in the tie.
A man then took on the responsibility of bringing the game to his homeland: Khris Middleton. The forward made his best game so far in the final and went up to 40 points, including six in the last minute. A few last minutes where Giannis Antetkounmpo had his moment of glory to tip the balance.
The plug on Ayton prevented the Suns from getting closer on the scoreboard and put an end to hopes of a comeback.
Chris Paul’s bad game
One of the reasons Phoenix was unable to close the match in his favor was the erratic party of the base in the creation. Coupled with Booker’s charge of fouls (he came in with four in the last quarter), the 36-year-old veteran lost five balls, including a loss to Holiday just seconds from the end.
Antetokounmpo’s supporting role
The power forward did not stand out as the figure of the match, but he returned to leave a magnificent statistical table: 26 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocks with 58% accuracy in field shots.
Also key was Holiday’s tough defense over Paul, and PJ Tucker’s onslaught to try to get Booker out of the game through personal fouls.
With this victory, hope returns for some Bucks who saw victory very difficult in certain sections and who are fully involved in the final.
The fifth game will be played in Phoenix on Sunday at 3:00 a.m. peninsular time with a final more even than ever. The swords in all the high.
