[HOT] : NBA: Thanks to a terrific Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee is taming Phoenix in Game 3 of the finals
Back in Wisconsin after two losses, the Bucks largely dominated the Suns last night (120-100) to return to 2-1 in those NBA Finals.
“Dollar in Six”. The chants of Milwaukee fans set the tone for this NBA final that seems to have taken a new turn after Game 3. However, after two defeats in Arizona, the Bucks tamed the suns so much (120-100) that their fans started to believe it again, and not just a little. “We played better from Game 1 to Game 2 and from Game 2 to Game 3. We can get even better and we have to keep building,” said double MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

A guided tour held until the end of the game (120-100).
The player: the “Greek freak” on fire
A great victory thanks to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s XXL performance. Already the author of 42 points in game 2, the MVP of the regular seasons 2018 and 2019 made it again in game 3 with 41 points. “If Giannis is like that, all you have to do is give him space and be ready,” commented his loyal lieutenant Khris Middleton. The Greek joins Shaquille O’Neal as the only player to chain two games with 40 or more points and 10 rebounds or more in the NBA finals.
Antetokounmpo has a rendezvous with history in this series against Phoenix. Like Michael Jordan in 1993, the “Greek Freak” was able to line up four games in a row with more than 40 points against the same suns. When asked about his performance at the end of the game, the leader of the Bucks replied very calmly: “I’m not Michael Jordan. “
